Cities plan economic summit


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
GLADES The leaders of the
cities of Belle Glade, South Bay
and Pahokee are working closely
in organizing an economic sum-
mit later this month that they
hope will give all cities a chance
to work together in approaching
the county on matters that are
crucial to the area.
With so many projects on the
board, the city leaders are pre-
pared to gauge the state of the


Glades, as well as make recom-
mendations regarding the future
of the three cities.
The county has planned an
economic summit of their own at
which the local cities plan on
making a presentation based on
the results of the summit in the
Glades.
Though planning on making
the summit a reality has been
ongoing, it has only been recent-
ly that the plans have been con-
firmed. Leaders say it is time to

finally start the necessary dia-
logue..
"We need to get together as
one region, the Glades region, to
determine our vision and future,"
said South Bay Mayor Clarence
Anthony. "This economic sum-
mit is that opportunity."
Belle Glade City Manager
Houston Tate is actively involved
in coordinating the summit, help-
ing in planning the event and
guiding the cities through the
subjects that will be touched on


the day of the summit. According
to him, the subjects for discus-
sion at the summit will include
matters special to the Glades.
At the session, which is being
planned to carry over to the next
day, leaders will be discussing
subjects ranging from agricul-
ture, to educational issues and
water issues. The session will
feature a dedicated discussion
relating to economic develop-
ment in the Glades.
"The whole purpose is to find


solutions to determine the steps
that the county should be
addressing in their economic
summit in November," said Mr.
Tate. "In that summit, the Glades
has about 45 minutes. We're sim-
ply saying that those stakehold-
ers who are part of this region
should have a stake in articulat-
ing concerns."
The idea for the summit has
been widely adopted by commis-

250 involved



in school fight


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE In the words of
one Pahokee officer who
responded to the School of
Choice recently in reference to a
fight, the scene he was met with
when he arrived was "chaotic".
According to the Pahokee
Police Department, a fight last
week at the school that seems to
have started inside a classroom,
spilled out into the hallways and,
before long, it was estimated
250 kids were involved in the
conflict in one way or another.
Officers responding quickly
attempted to quell the situation,
ordering a stop to the fight, but


were met by dozens of the stu-
dents who continued to coax
the raging crowd.. The fight
brought attention to the newly
opened, privately-owned school
-and the security requirements
that officers say will now be nec-
essary to contain the escalating
conflict.
The incident happened Aug.
24, at approximately 10:17 a.m.
at the school, located on Rardin
Avenue. The police department
believes the fight was the result
of an on-going conflict between
students in Belle Glade and stu-
dents in Pahokee.

Local resident receives home


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Cassandra
Moreland of Belle Glade beamed
with pride as she welcomed
dozens of strangers to her new
home. Though she had never
met many of them in her life
before, she was eager to give
them a tour of the house and
demonstrate just how grateful
she was.
Ms. Moreland is the first of
what the United Way of Palm
Beach County hopes will be
many new homeowners in the
area. Qualifying for help under
the Individual Development
Account program overseen by
United Way Prosperity Centers
throughout the county, the pro-
gram offers prospective home-
owners the chance to realize the
American dream of owning their
own home.
According to Dianne Laubert
with the United Way, the pro-
gram is based on the idea of
matched-savings. For every dol-


lar a participant puts into their
IDA savings account, it is
matched by another two dollars.
At the end of the program, partic-
ipants have a minimum of $6,000
to use as a down payment on
their new home.
According to the United Way,
though, the IDA program is sim-
ply one of the many services
offered at the three Prosperity
Centers located throughout the
county, with participants receiv-
ing help in the form of education-
al resources aimed at ensuring
the success of participants in
their newventures.
Referred to as a one-stop
resource center, the Prosperity
Centers offer money manage-
ment assistance, benefits assis-
tance, educational and vocation-
al career counseling and
year-round tax preparation serv-
ices, as well as the IDA program.
Established in 2004, the Prosperi-
ty Campaign caters to low-
income working residents with
the ultimate goal of moving them


"toward greater economic stabil-
ity, higher earnings and home
ownership."
The Prosperity Campaign is a
collaboration of community part-
ners, including the Quantum
Foundation, Palm Beach County
Board df Commissioners, U.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services, Palm Beach
Community College, NOAH
Development and We Help Com-
munity Development Corpora-
tion, among others.
Last week, representatives of
the United Way, including repre-
sentatives with the local Prosperi-
ty Center in Belle Glade who
helped Cassandra through the
way, joined her in celebrating her
new purchase. Local leaders
were also on-hand to commem-
orate the event.
*"Seven months ago, Cassan-
dra came to the office and never
left the office," joked Bill Holmes,
the Prosperity Center manager in

Canker hits Southern Gardens


HENDRY COUNTY -'Southern
Gardens Citrus has identified 4125
acres of citrus trees that will have to
be pushed and burned as a result
of exposure to. citrus canker.
Approximately 2555 acres at its
Dunwody Groves, 183 acres at
Alcoma and 1387 acres at the com-
pany's Southern Groves.
That equates to approximately
600,000 trees and 1.6 million
boxes of fruit.
Currently, Southern Gardens
grove personnel are working .to
push up and destroy the impacted
areas as quickly as possible to pre-
vent canker from spreading fur-
ther. It is imperative that all trees
within the 1900 ft. radius of a
canker-infected tree be destroyed
quickI' to prevent further spread
of the disease within the groves.
We are in the middle of hurricane
season and the associated winds
and rain could hasten the spread
of canker as the multiple storms
did last season.
In addition to the canker find in
Southern Groves, Alico, Inc., has
also discovered a second finding of
canker in their Hendry County
groves, but the company is report-
ing that an early detection of the


contagious disease will help pre-
vent the spread.
Alico, Inc., (NASDAQ:ALCO)
one of the South's best-known
agribusiness companies operating
in Central and Southwest Florida,
and with approximately 136,500
acres in real estate holdings, was
informed on Aug. 31, by the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Mhat citrus
canker was confirmed in Alico's
Knowles-Thomas grove located in,
Hendry County, Florida. Citrus
canker is a highly contagious bac-
terial disease of citrus that causes
premature leaf and fruit drop. Cit-
rus canker causes no threat to
humans, animals or plant life
other than citrus : In order to eradi-
cate the disease, infected and
exposed trees within I ,91.10 feet of'
the canker find, must be removed
and destroyed in accordance with
Florida law.
John R. Alexander, Chairman
and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, "This is
the second canker find in our
groves this year. We recently hired
two canker inspectors so that we
can discover the disease early if
present, thereby minimizing the
loss. This find was discovered by


our in-house inspectors. The find is
expected to impact approximately
350 acres of this grove location.
The earlier find this year affected
approximately 150 acres of a grove
in Polk County, Florida."
This find, coupled with the ear-
lier find, affects approximately
4.50 percent of the company's
11,147 producing citrus acres. All
of the trees in this grove are cov-
ered under the Federal Crop Insur-
ance program. A net loss of
approximately $960,000, consist-
inig of tree development costs and
inventoried costs, will be recorded
in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005.
Reimbursements to be received
from this insurance coverage are
expected to cover approximately
62% of the loss.
Additionally under the Florida
Canker Eradication Program, citrus
may not be replanted on the prop-
erty until it has been determined
that the property has been canker
free for two years. In light of this,
the company is evaluating the
property for its best future use. The
Knowles-Thomas grove is not con-
tiguous to other company groves.

Nelson to renew call for national


catastrophic insurance fund


TALLAHASSEE Momen-
tum may be building for a federal
fund to handle insurance catas-
trophes such as Hurricane Katri-
na, representing a rare issue that
may unite democrats and repub-
licans at the state and federal lev-
els of government.
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., said
last Wednesday he will renew his
push for a national catastrophic
fund similar in scale to Florida's,
which was created after Hurricane
Andrew in 1992 to help insurers
cope with massive payouts. Gov.
Jeb Bush on last Monday said he
supported the same idea.
Nelson, a former Florida insur-
ance commissioner, detailed the
idea Monday in Tallahassee but
added a twist. In a speech to the
Economic Club of Florida, he pro-
posed allowing insurance compa-
nies the ability to create their own
reserve funds and allowing them
to be non-taxable. Government
regulators would monitor the


"Florida's Hurricane Catastrophe Fund is a
great model for what states can do to protect
themselves against disasters."
Ken Lundberg,
spokesman


funds to ensure they are kept seg-
regated, but otherwise the idea
would bypass the need for a new
level of bureaucracy.
"Something like that is going to
have to happen in order for us to be
able to come through this financial
disaster," Nelson said.
The idea is similar to one sug-
gested by U.S. Rep. Mark Foley and
former U.S. Rep. Bill MdCollum,
both republicans, and a
spokesman for U.S. Sen. Mel Mar-
tinez, R-Fla., also said Martinez is
open to the idea.
"Florida's' Hurricane Catastro-
phe Fund is a great model for what
states can do to protect them-
selves against disasters," said


spokesman Ken Lundberg. "Given
the size and impact of Katrina, it's
certain Congress will take a look at
the Foley bill and others that seek
to address the issue."
Nelson said some homeowners
are already paying for such a fund,
,in a sense, through the extra premi-
ums insurers collect to prepare for
so-called "100-year storms."
Nelson also called on President
Bush to ask the petroleum indus-
try to freeze its prices, as they did
after Sept. 11, 2001, to slow the
runaway price of gas. Yet he dis-
missed the idea that it's a supply-
and-demand problem that points
out the need to increase drilling off
Florida's Gulf Coast.

Recycling newspapers is worthy


I was pleased a few weeks ago
when a master gardener suggest-
ed using newspapers under
mulch to control weed growth.
(Use a thickness of at least six
sheets and overlap the sections. It
is easier to keep them in place if
you soak the newspaper in water
first.)
Newspapers are such useful
things. After you read the day's
news and clip out photos to send
to relatives, the black and white
parts of the rest can be recycled
usefully. (Color inserts on glossy
paper are not as permeable and
should not be used under mulch.)
Today's newspapers are
organic. Ink is made from soy-
beans. Paper comes from trees.
Actually often newsprint comes
from recycled paper, which was
made from trees.
.Since newspapers are organic;


they are a more environmentally
friendly weed barrier than the
rolls of black plastic some garden-
ers use.
I remember my father using
newspapers when planting toma-
toes. He would dig a hole, drop in
a crumpled sheet of newspaper,
put in a few inches of dirt, and
plant the tomato plant on top. He
said the newspaper would "wick"
moisture from the ground to the
tomato plant.
Other environmentally friendly
ways to recycle newspapers (and
save money) include:
Save your empty toilet paper
rolls. Stuff crumpled newspaper
into one end set upright, newspa-
per side down, in a watertight
tray. Pack each with moist, sterile
potting soil and plant seeds.
When the plants are big enough
to transfer to the garden, you can


plant the whole thing. Both the
cardboard roll and the newspaper
are biodegradable.
If you have too many ripe
bananas, wrap them in newspa-
per and store them in the refriger-
ator. The skins will turn black but
the fruit will stay fresh.
Place crumpled newspapers
in wet shoes so they will retain
their shape as they dry. The news-
paper will also help deodorize the
shoes by absorbing odors.
Keep some old newspapers
in the car to use to protect car
seats from muddy or wet cloth-
ing, should you.get caught in a
storm.
Take along old newspapers
when you go camping. Stacks of
newspaper can be placed under
sleeping bags to provide insula-
tion from the cold ground. Crum-
pled newspapers can also be


used to help get a campfire start-
ed.
Use crumpled newspapers
to polish car windows after clean-
ing.
Use newspapers as padding
under tablecloths, to protect
tables from hot plates and from
spills.
Before allowing children to
paint or color, spread newspaper
out to protect the table from any
mishaps.
Save old newspapers to use
in paper mache crafts and school
projects.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any.
prescription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would 'otherwise be consid-
ered: "Healthy".


Katrinas' respond to hurricane news

bearing their name has been a
topic of interest.
When the hurricane list first
came out, several Katrinas were
pleased'to see their name getting
a little national recognition. Most
of those posting on the site had
never personally met another per-
son named Katrina.
"I would love to have a hurri-
cane named after us" wrote one
poster. "I don't know about any of
you others but I have been known
for blowing through some lives
like a windstorm."
When the storm gained
strength last weekend, more
Katrinas took notice.
"Aren't you proud of our
storm?" one Katrina wrote.


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken

Initial excitement about seeing
their name in the news gave way
to depression over the destruction
the "K" storm left in its wake.
"Now that the hurricane is so
deadly, I am no longer proud of
sharing my name with it, to say
the least," wrote a teenage Katri-
na. "It was kind of fun when I was
hearing about it at first, but now
my heart goes out to those who
were effected by it and their.fami-
lies. Now it's not quite so exciting
to see my name in the headlines,
because there's so much
heartache that must be attached
with it."


"So much destruction so
many lives lost, homes lost,"
another Katrina wrote. "It is so
overwhelming. And now the
name Katrina will forever be,
linked to this tragedy."
"At first I was too excited see-
ing my name all over TV," another
Katrina commented. "The name
Katrina is just not so common as
Susan or Mary. But as this hurri-
cane progressed, I will always
remember my name associated
with tragedy."
Katrina Blankenship of Vir-
ginia is a Web designer. After the
hurricane hit, she turned her per-
sonal Web site,
www.katrina.com, into a forum
about the hurricane.
"This Web site was designed
about seven years ago to advertise
my computer business. God has
blessed me and my family beyond
words over the years. With the
computer radio show that I host-
ed for three years and this Web
site, God. has given me a special
gift to help others. Of course, I


had no idea that there would be a
hurricane with my name attached
to it. And this site has received
over 80,000 hits in two days.. I
hope that this can be a portal
where folks can share their sto-
ries, ask for help, or lend a helping
hand," she wrote.
The site has forums for those
seeking information about rela-
tives and those offering help in the
form of jobs, housing and special
skills. Some posters offer hurri-
cane victims help by contacting
relatives in foreign countries. Oth-
ers offer shelter. in their own
homes. A company in Jack-
sonville posted job openings,
along with an offer to help with
housing. Many simply offer com-r
fort and prayers.
"Let's all reach out our own
way whether it be money, volun-
teer work, prayer, or any other to
help these people right now who
are so much in need," one poster
wrote.

Art can be displayed in various forms


ByAnn Tyler
Hello again. You know, art
doesn't always have to be a
painting or piece of sculpture.,
Mankind, throughout history,
has found unusual ways to
express himself artistically,-- ,
For example, many of the
races of the world have turned
their costumes into a form or art.
Using their bodies, hair, and
dress to tell the story of Who
they are, and to reflect the place
they live.
There isn't any better exam-
ple of that than right here in the
Everglades with the Seminole
Indian Tribe. Since my early
childhood I have been intrigued
by the Seminole Indians. This
magnificent race of people cer-
tainly created one of the greatest
and most distinctive costumes of
any race on earth, and 'they
achieved this while living in a
severe tropical swampland.
The Seminoles, a breakaway
tribe from the Creek Indians,
were forced to seek refuge deep
in the Big Cypress Swamp. This
was a no man's land, a land that
the United States Union Army
found intolerable, and therefore
were, unable to conquer the


- Ik A1 --'
Submitted to INI/Ann Tyler
Local artist and author Ann Tyler has developed a real affini-
ty for the Seminole Tribe, which began as far back as one of
her first memories. In 1939 Mrs. Tyler visited a Seminole Indi-
an village with her mother Helen Spann.


Seminoles living there.
Exiled in this harsh land the
Seminole home became a chick-
ee made of palmetto fronds.
They would build the chickees
on hammock mounds in the Big
Cypress, and perched upon the


platform of a chickee the Indian
women would create their art,
beautiful and colorful bands of
intricately designed cotton.
The Seminoles exchanged
their old Creek art for this new
one that would reflect their new


life. There, in the hot humid
tropical Everglades, long flowing
skirts with overlapping capes
made of cotton protected their
bodies from thick masses of
swarming mosquitoes, and
somehow out of that sometimes
dismal :place came a statement
of bold color that would say,
"We are strong. We are bold. We
are unique."
The Semihole women reflect-
ed great dignity with their mag-
nificent costumes, regal sculp-
tured hairstyles, and sometimes
up to 25 pounds of beads placed
around their necks.
The Seminole men would
wear turbans, jackets, and kilt-
like skirts made with the same
intricately patterned bands of
color that said Seminole. The
Seminole Indians were most
certainly a beautiful living work
of art.
Take a few moments on your
next trip to the Belle Glade
Branch of the Palm Beach Coun-
ty Public Library and visit the
Lawrence E.. Will Museum.
There is a very beautiful perma-
nent Seminole and Caloosa Indi-
an exhibit on display there.

A SAVING MESSAGE: This is a message that people that go to
church need to get. Everybody that goes to church, isn't saved.
When you are saved, you don't go from church to the bar. You don't
do the things that you do that save people. It's like being pregnant.
You're either pregnant or you're not. You're either saved or you're
not. People that go to church one time and say that you're saved,
clear your mind because just because you go to church, don't mean
that you're saved. You have to live and walk the life of Christ to be
saved.

DON'T HANG UP ON ME: I'm a concerned citizen. It's a good
thing featuring different people in our community in the community
profile. But I do want to say that the people that work at city hall in
South Bay are public servants. They should always be courteous to
all the residents. City manager, how many calls or complaints is it
going to take against Mr. Richard Harris, to move you. Commission-
ers, South Bay does not need a Belle Glade resident conducting city
business in an inappropriate manner. I don't know how many peo-
ple around town that this man hangs the phone up on. It's time to
wake up, citizens. Do we want somebody like this at our city hall
representing us? No.

HERE ARE OUR DEMANDS: This is an eye opener. South Bay citi-
zens open your eyes. We complain about our dirty our city is, but
we don't do anything about it. We demand results.

TWO MORE COMMISSIONERS: This is for the citizens of Belle
Glade. Come March we need to elect two commissioners like Com-
missioner Garrett.


THE GLOVES ARE OFF: I'm calling about the uncleanliness in
some of our fast food restaurants in Belle Glade. It should be a top
priority for the employees you have who are preparing food for the
customers. It is unnerving to stand in line and waiting for an order
and observe the employees handling the food with no gloves on.

WATER WORLD: Again my question, these windmill water sta-
tions, where does the water from those machines come from? Is it
city of Belle Glade water? I tell you there sure is a lot of people get-
ting theii water out of there. I looked and saw one person get 20 gal-
lons at one time out of there, so it must be pumped in from some-
where because I don't see how those machines can hold that many
gallons with all of those people standing there waiting in line and
getting all those jugs full.
,T i-
JUST AN ACCIDENT: This is about the lights going off at the foot-
ball game against Pahokee. No one turned the lights off on purpose.
I work in the booth up top. A coach, coming down the ladder,
bumped the switch and turned the lights off. It was an accident.
There has been a cover put over the switch since then. It will not
happen again. No one would ever turn the lights off on purpose.
This was purely accidental.

MORE IMPORTANT THINGS: I was calling because all of this
other stuff in Speak Out that's not a real issue. The current real big
issue the hurricane and all the damage it has caused. So, Belle
Glade, South Bay, Clewiston, and Pahokee just needs to get together
and help the people, that would be nice, instead of people going up
against each other in the newspaper. So, I think you. people just
need to leave Mr. Robert Love alone, and Clewiston should apolo-
gize to Pahokee, and let's get on with our lives, because that's not a
big issue. The big issue is people in New Orleans don't have no
water. You think they're worried about what happened at a foot-
ball game? I don't think so. So, Belle Glade as a community needs to
get together and see what we can do to help these people. There's
no talk in the Speak Out about that. Ya'll just need to stop the child-
ish stuff and deal with the real important issue, because they helped
us, why can't we help them?


HOPE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'VE DONE: For all those people
in Florida who abused the FEMA privileges, I hope all you guys that
abuse that, I hope you all really feel sad about it, because you really
didn't need that money. Everybody over there really needs that
money. So, I hope that you are thinking about that right now.

Meet Your Neighbor: Mandy Perez


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

Q: What is your name?
A: Armando Perez. I go by
Mandy Perez, that's the American-
izedversion.

Q: Where were you bom?
A: I was born in Cuba in 1951. I
was actually born in Havana, the
capital, but I'm from a small town
in Matanzas Province. (Q: How did
you get to America?) In 1961, my
brother and I flew ahead of my par-
ents. We were put in a plane and
discharged to come to the states.
(Q: What was the experience like?)
It was a horrific experience. We
didn't speak the language. I didn't
even know how to count to three.
We were kind of parachuted into a
foreign country not speaking the
language and we had to learn.
There was no ESOL program in
those days. It was sink or swim,
basically. A little bit over a year later,
my parents were able to leave the
country. We stayed with some rela-
tives. I was 10 and my brother was
eight.

Q:What doyoudo?
A: I'm the headmaster, and I
double up as the high school prin-
cipal in Glades Day School. The
school is broken up into two major
areas, the upper school, which is
seventh through twelfth grade,
which I manage day-to-day; and
then the lower school, which is
Kindergarten through sixth, and it's
managed by an elementary school
principal. Basically, I oversee the
budget, the hiring and the firing of
the staff, the day-to-day affairs of
ordering materials, books, main-
taining the administrative staff that
handles discipline. I've been doing
this now nine years as the head-
master. This is my 30th year at
Glades Day School. Prior to that I
was a math teacher and coached


Armando Perez
some football. I was the head foot-
ball coach for a time, for a span of
five years. I also forgot to mention
that fact that I teach two classes
during the day. I'm one of the few
principals who do that. I love
teaching and I'm still in the class-
room. I teach a calculus class.

Q:Why?
A: Oh, that's an easy question.
That's the students, just the smiles
on their faces. One of the pluses
with being associated and involved
with young people is that their
enthusiasm for life rubs on you. I
think I may look old on the outside,
but I'm young in the inside.

Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: I try to think that I'm a com-
passionate person, number one.
Number two, I have a strong sense
of believes. I'm conservative in
terms of finances, but probably lib-
eral in terms of social issues. It's a
complex question, and I would
have to give you a complex answer
and I'm a complex individual. I like
the fact that I speak multiple lan-
guages, it gives me an advantage,
English and Spanish. I'm an honest
person, probably honest to a fault.
Sometimes I have a tendency to
exaggerate, and I talk too much.
One of the things I have been trying


hard to work at is, I tend to be a lit-
tle impatient. I want to be a little
more patient with the way I han-
dle, even when it comes to the job.

Q: What doyou fear?
A: Immediately, right now the
thought that crossed my mind is,
almost for a week now, I keep
thinking about, and this is going to
sound ridiculous but... I remember
how mad I was when we lost
power at home last year because
of the hurricanes for 13 days. The
thought scares me that if I were liv-
ing in New Orleans or Biloxi right
now, I don't think I could bear it.
Even just being out of power for 13
days and I was incoherent, I can't
even imagine what it would be like
to lose everything. The fact that a
nasty hurricane can wipe out this
school, everything we know, our
lifestyles. That's been in the back of
my mind.
On a smaller scale, I worry
about kids out on the road some-
times, transportation. The students
sometimes, when I know that we
have an away game that's far away,
like in Ft. Myers, and I know they're
traveling at night, I have a tendency
to be slightly concerned. Obviously
those are things that you have no
control over.
(Q: You have a close relation-
ship with your students?) I would
hope so. We try to foster that nur-
turing environment. I like to think
that I do. We have almost 600 stu-
dents.

Q: What is your favorite song?
A: The song that, really I like,
you're going find this hard to
believe, but there's a country-west-
ern song by George Strait called
Amarillo by Morning, which I like a
lot. But the Elvis Presley tune,
Angels Thread, I forget the title of
the song now. It's not any of the
early ones, it's the one from the
Blue Hawaii movie. He sings it to


the grandmother, he doesn't sing it
to his girlfriend. I'm whistling the
tune right now. Again, I like melod-
ic sounds and I like songs that tell a
story.

Q:Whatirksyou?
A: I think injustice more than
anything else. Injustice can really
hurt me. Sometimes irrational
actions by other people when I see
something happening, which has
no justification whatsoever for it
happening. We see it everyday. I
see people act irrational all the
time. That irritates. More than any-
thing, beyond that, really what irks
me, I see people act with no
thought process. There's no logic.
They're acting emotionally, rather
than with logic. Without being
politically incorrect, I would have
to be politically incorrect to really
tell you how it irritates me when I
see some people act how they
shouldn't act.

Q: What mernory do you hold
dear?
A: I don't know why, as a
younger kid, probably in 1959, I
have this picture of being on the
side of the road, which I was, with
my mom, holding hands with my
mom; and I remember the com-
munist brigades riding down the
central highway, there was one
central highway in Cuba, coming
down in their tanks and basically
people waving thinking it was a lib-
eration movement. Regardless of
the politics, or how it ended up, we
found out later, obviously it was a
communist takeover. But the pic-
ture that stands in my mind is sit-
ting there holding my mom's hand
and watching the army trucks and
tanks ride by with people waving at
them. That was in '59,1 I was at the
side of the road and we were wav-
ing at military people coming
down, not really knowing what it
was about.


Devastating storm an incredible promise


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Shooting across south Florida
and strengthening in the gulf, Hur-
ricane Katrina slammed into the
Gulf Coast just outside New
Orleans a week ago Monday with
shrieking 145-mph winds; wiping
out entire neighborhoods, flooding
houses up to their roofs, swamping
Mississippi's beachfront and blow-
ing out windows in hospitals,
hotels and high-rises. The night
before landfall, the mayor of New
Orleans voiced what everyone has
now realized. This was the ONE
they had all feared. The ONE bring-
ing a catastrophe of biblical pro-
portions.
Even though the storm just
missed New Orleans and slowed
down just enough before landfall,
people are naming this one of the
worst natural disasters that we
have faced as a nation. Levees gave
way, and New Orleans will proba-
bly never recover to what it once


was. South Mississippi and Alaba-
ma were swamped by the rising
coastal waters and have been dev-
astated.
And though we missed the
brunt of the storm, it is still going to
have a significant impact on our
lives. As our hearts go out to those
suffering loss and total devastation,
our worries arise as the rumors of
soaring gas prices, gas rationing,
and brown outs in our area are
abounding. They may be a reality
by the time this goes to print.
It is, at times like these that we
need to take heart and remember
these words: "For where two or
three come together in my name,
there I am in the midst of them."
(Matthew 18:20)
Think about it. When we come
together in pain, there He is with
us. When we come together to
pray, He is with us. When we come
together in compassion to help, He
is with us. When a married couple
kneels together beside their bed in
prayer, Jesus is there. When a fami-


ly bows their heads to give thanks
at the dinner table, He is there.
When a pastor has a prayer beside
a bed in a hospital with someone
who is suffering, He is there. When
storms destroy our communities
and we Christians bind together,
He is there. That's His assurance to
us.
In the early 70s the firemen of
Fairfax County, Virginia received
new helmets. They were really
sharp: Colorful, high-impact plas-
tic, size-adjustable, and scuff resist-
ant. There was only one problem
with the helmets. They melted
when theywere exposed to heat.,
There are philosophies that we
can embrace, there are religions
that we can adopt, there are gurus
we can follow, but what happens
when we get thrown into the fire?
Do they provide help when we are
tempted, comfort when we are
hurting, strength when we feel we
can't carry on? Or do they melt
under the heat?
Those who follow Jesus know


that He can provide what we need
spiritually to stand in the hour of
testing, to stand firm in the midst of
the heat that arises around us. As
the Psalmist so adequately pro-
claims, "Our help is in the name of
the LORD, the Maker of heaven
and earth."

Want to know where to find the
Lord to get this help? Get together
with someone else who is a follow-
er of His for the express purpose of
seeking His heart, studying His
word,,worshiping His name, lifting
up needs in prayer, or binding the
broken hearted, and our Lord will
be there, guaranteed!

We are not alone. This is where
we find strength for the journey.
Our Lord has given us an incredible
promise: "Where two or three
come together in my name, there
am I with them." Claim that prom-
ise. When God is in our midst, we
can make it through even the most
devastating storm.


Letter to the Editor


Best care in the Glades
To the editor:
I have lived in Pahokee for over
35 years, running my own busi-
ness. Like everyone here, I have
seen the wonderful Pahokee turn
into a community with very little
to brag about. I recently had to
make one of those decisions we
all fear. My incredible wife, the
true love of my life, was diag-
nosed with Alzheimer's. There
was never a question in either of
our minds about caring for each
other in sickness. I have had my
share of problems over the years
and she was always there for and
with me.
When it became clear that she


needed more help than I was
capable of, I dreaded placing her
in a "facility" fearing that she
would not receive the proper
care. Everyone told me that
Glades Health Care had changed,
and since I did not want to be far
from Ann, I placed her there.
It turned out to be about the
best decision I could have made, I
want the people of Pahokee to
know one thing to be very proud
of and that is Glades Health Care.
Since day one, the staff has
treated my wife with respect, hon-
esty, and professionalism all hold
together with love.
They all work very hard to pro-
vide the best possible atmosphere


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. If real
bones are bad for dogs, then what
is a good alternative to give them
to chew on? Jennifer, in Belle
Glade.
A: Hey Jennifer. Real bones
can splinter when a dog chews
them, and in the digestion
process it can injure or perforate
the esophagus, stomach or intes-
tine. This is a surgical and medical
emergency, which if not treated
immediately can lead to death. A
great alternative is a product
called, "Nylabone". Nylabone is a
digestible, plastic-flavored bone
that dogs love to chew on, which
will not cause any digestion
issues. Some choose rawhide
bones. I don't like to recommend
them as they can cause diarrhea
and vomiting. Hope that answers
your question Jennifer. Take care,
Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I was think-
ing about getting a pet skunk.
Good or Bad idea?
Dennis, in Loxahatchee.
A: Dear Dennis. Well let me
start out by saying, "What in the
world are you thinking!" Okay,
I.'m a big fan of Pepe Le Pu myself.
In fact, he is quite the hunky


skunky, and I love him with all my
heart. I have known a few well
cared for skunks that are very
adorable and affectionate.
However, having a pet skunk is
a big responsibility. Anyone who
is thinking of getting an exotic pet
really needs to do much research.
Look into the cost, care, and
maintenance for such a pet. If you
really did your homework, then I
am sure you will change your
mind. Did you know a well cared
for skunk can live to be 20 years of
age? Also, if you do not get them
neutered or spayed very early you
have a potential for a very aggres-
sive animal on your hands. They
need to have their own room or
space no cages here. And, it
isn't easy to housebreak them
either. Have you ever seen skunk
poop? It's not pretty! Well Denis
keep me posted with what you
decide to do. Good luck, Doc
Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com, and check
out your answers weekly in The
Pet Corner. Be sure to tune into
The Savvy Vet Show each Thurs-
day at 10:30 a.m. on 93.5 The Big
Dawg.


for the residents as well as their
loved ones.
There are never any foul odors
or nasty attitudes to deal with. If
paper work needs to be done, it is
handled for me. I could have
searched and searched for a facili-
ty, but the best is right here in
Pahokee.
I can rest easy knowing I made
the best possible choice for my
wife and many others. They
deserve to be recognized for their
dedication and humanity as well


as their smiles and hugs. Thank
you Glades Health Care for bring-
ing a shining star in Pahokee and
for bringing joy and peace of
mind to my wife and I and the
others who are fortunate enough
to be cared for by all of you as if
we were family, you have eased
the pain in my heart by taking
care of Ann in the best possible
way. You keep her happy, healthy
and clean. Thanks for making my
heart smile.

OPINION







Thursday, September 8, 2005 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


HCSO aids hurricane victims in recovery


Hendry County Sheriff Ron-
nie Lee along with other Florida
Sheriff's are spearheading col-
lection and delivery of supplies
to the areas of the Gulf Coast
that were ravaged by hurricane
Katrina. Collection containers
are being placed at Hendry
County Supermarkets in Clewis-


ton and LaBelle as well as the
Sheriff's Offices in Clewiston
and LaBelle. According to
reports from Law Enforcement
Agencies in the stricken areas
they are in special need of the
following items:
Bottled Water
Mosquito Repellent


Baby Food
Disposable Diapers
Tooth Paste
Tooth Brushes
Canned Food
Canned Fruit
Sheriff Lee also reported that
employees of the Hendry Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office have started a


cash fund to assist Law Enforce-
ment Officers and their families
in Canton, Mississippi that were
left virtually with just the clothes
they were wearing. Persons
wanting to make a cash contri-
bution can do so at the Sheriff's
Offices in Clewiston or LaBelle.


Police Activity


Belle Glade suicide
BELLE GLADE The Belle
Glade Police Department
responded to what appears to
have been a suicide just before
noon on Aug. 29. An 18-year-old
Hispanic female was found hang-
ing from a tree in her yard by a
close friend. A resident of the area
observed a female acting in a
frantic manner as he drove home
for lunch. Stopping to provide
assistance, he quickly learned
that there was a young lady hang-
ing from a tree. He reacted quick-
ly to cut her down. Emergency
Medical Services were on the
scene as police arrived to investi-
gate the incident. The body was
transported to Glades General
Hospital to await the Medical
Examiners arrival.
Public Safety Director Kenneth
Holley stated that while there
appears to be no evidence indi-
cating foul play, the case remains
an active investigation pending
the findings of the Department
and the Medical Examiners
autopsy report.
Sexual assault arrest
CLEWISTON On Aug. 31,
-the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office Road Patrol Division was
notified of a Sexual Battery case
involving an 11-year-old victim
and a 21-year-old suspect. Mem-
bers of the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office Criminal Investigations'
Division responded and met with
the guardian of the victim. The
Child Protection Team was noti-
fied to assess any possible health
needs of the victim. The suspect,
Rogelio Bonilla Salmeron, date of
birth 02/07/84 of 1550 Old U.S. 27,
Lot 250, Clewiston, Florida was
located and interviewed at the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
Clewiston Sub-Station. As a result
of.the interview and investigation,
Salmeron was charged with Sexu-


al Assault on a victim under 12
years of age and booked into the
Hendry County Jail.
U.S. Sugar and Hendry
County Sheriff's Office
CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar
and the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office put an end to an Okee-
chobee thief's brazen attempt to
sell the company's railroad ties
through local classified ads.
- "We received a tip from an
individual who had responded to
a newspaper ad offering railroad
ties for sale," said Fred Dyess,
manager, Human Resources and
Security. "Apparently, after seeing
the ad in several local papers, he
called and arranged to meet the
seller concerning the purchase of
some cross ties. He was then
taken onto company property to
see a large stack of U.S. Sugar rail-
road ties."
After becoming concerned
that something was not right, the
potential buyer checked with U.S.
Sugar personnel. That led ,to a
cooperative effort with the Sher-
iff's Office in setting up an under-
cover operation that resulted in
the arrest of three people in Okee-
chobee. The trio was charged
with a number of counts, includ-
ing grand theft.
S"We are serious about putting
an end to trespassing and theft of
company property and intend to
prosecute offenders to the full
extent of the law," Dyess said.
Dyess commended Charles
White, the lead investigator in this
case, and the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office for a job well,
done.
Traffic checkpoint
leads to 16 arrests
LABELLE The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office held a traf-
fic checkpoint south of LaBelle on


State Road 29 Saturday Sept. 3,
beginning at 10 p.m., and ending
at 2 a.m., Sunday morning. Sheriff
Ronnie Lee said 16 people were
arrested on charges ranging from
no driver's, license, to possession
of cocaine, possession of marijua-
na, driving with a suspended or
revoked drivers license, and driv-
ing under the influence.
Sheriff Lee would like to thank
Shone Phillips and his staff at the
local Florida Department of Trans-
portation Office for furnishing and
setting up all traffic cones, signs,
lighting and other assistance as
needed during the checkpoint
. operation.
Hendry County
Sheriff's Office arrest
LABELLE The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office investigat-
ed a burglary at Boo Boo's River-
house Restaurant, in LaBelle on
Sept. 5. A screen had been cut at


the southeast corner of the build-
ing and a sheet of drywall pushed
away in order to gain entrance to
the inside. A door had been
forced open to the bar and stor-
age area. Several bottles of liquor
were stolen and office equipment
was damaged by the burglar.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said infor-
mation was obtained by Investi-
gators that Devon Sharrod
Kennedy, age 18, was in posses-
sion of several bottles of liquor
and was giving it to friends. Inves-
tigators determined the liquor
was taken from Boo Boo's and
Kennedy was arrested and
charged with Dealing in Stolen
Property.
In a separate case, Sheriff.Lee
reported that an investigation by
members of the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office Criminal Investiga-
tions Division resulted in the
arrest of a Juvenile male for a bur-
glary committed at 836 Redishf
Circle in Clewiston.

Seven students top


FCAT score in area


As promised in the beginning
of the year, in a ceremony cele-
brated Sept. 1, 2005, a group of
employees of the School District's
Glades Maintenance and Plant
Operations Team rewarded seven
students for obtaining the greatest
FCAT gains this year, compared to
last year.
The students who received the
FCAT Reward were:
Bernita Boldin Belle Glade
Elementary
Loukeria Gary Glade View
Elementary
Lupe Escobedo Gove Ele-
mentary
Lennard Simpson -
KEC/Canal Point Elementary
Consuelo Scott Pahokee
Elementary


Lloyd Howard Pioneer Park
Elementary
Jabari Howard Rosenwald
Elementary
The employees donated $2 a
week to reward a student from
each of the seven elementary
schools in the Glades area. This
idea was developed by Craig Sin-
gletary, M&PO employee who
was born and raised in the Glades
and has demonstrated an owner-
ship stake in his community and
the school system.
The West Area Office and Area
Superintendent identified the stu-
dents and assisted in honoring
them.
The students received a gift
certificate in the amount of $100
to a store of their choice.


WEST PALM BEACH Three
accomplished educators have
been appointed as the adminis-
trators for three Life Skills Centers
that have opened in partnership
with the School District of Palm
Beach County. Last year a team of
school district administrators,
under the leadership of Superin-
tendent Dr. Johnson, developed a
plan to restructure Alternative
Education program options for
at-risk students attending com-
prehensive secondary schools.
Through collective efforts, the
team recognized the need to
address the academic and social
needs of unsuccessful students
through smaller classroom envi-
ronments and technology-based
instruction, paced to meet indi-
vidual student needs.
This led the way to offering
programs for students which
would "save students' lives, one
at a time," say administrators, by
ensuring that each student has
the opportunity to graduate with
a high school diploma rather

This year, the school district is
offering an innovative new pro-
gram led by experienced admin-
istrators for students in grades 9
through 12. "The students will
benefit academically from the'
program's tailored instructional
.curriculum delivered in a smaller
more intimate setting," said Derri
Parkey, director of Alternative
Education for the School District
of Palm Beach County.
Students who are referred to
the new Alternative Education
Programs by the School District
of Palm Beach County must be
high school students in grades 9
through 12, and will work at their
own pace in technology-based
classes and personalized study

giero, who responded to the fight,
a deputy on campus requested
emergency assistance from the
local police department after the
fight broke out. As officers verbally
commanded the people to calm
down, a group of about 30 or 40
students from the hallways contin-
ued to rile the crowd and shouted
even as officers tried to assume
control. The sheriff's office also
responded to the scene.
Investigators were unable to
find out why the fight started in the
first place, with conflicting stories
and a lack of witnesses.
Four individuals were arrested
in connection with the fight, three
juveniles and one adult, 19-year-
old Kevis Crawford. Each faces a
charge of fray, a misdemeanor.
Calipto Gonzalez, with the
Pahokee Police Department, was
surprised with the number of stu-
dents involved in the incidents,

with only one security person does
not surprise him. Something must
be done in order that the violence
does not continue, he said. "This
was very dangerous," said Gonza-
lez. "Someone could have gotten
hurt very pretty badly. We were
lucky it didn't happen, but we have
to keep it from happening."
In the wake of the fight, the
school contracted six additional
officers to help bring control to the
problem and to cease the recur-
rence of fighting, according to Gon-
zalez.
The school, which had been a
part of the district the year before, is
now in the hands of a private com-
pany that provides schooling to the
students and only opened its doors
a few weeks ago. The school
accepts students who do not quali-
fy for enrollment in the public
school system, according to Gon-
zalez.
There does not seem to be a
clear explanation for the fights that
continue among the kids in neigh-
boring cities. Gonzalez does not
know why the students fight, only
that they do.
"These kids in Pahokee and
Belle Glade, they just can't get
along," he said.

background in law enforcement,

he "had something to offer" each
time he applied for the top job.
When he found the chance to
work in Pahokee, he knew he
wanted to apply. To him, Pahokee.
represented a city "in need of pro-
fessional law enforcement." In
doing research of the city, Black-
ford knew he was in for a chal-
lenge, but said he was ready to face
those challenges.
The chief officially took over last
month, on Aug. 16 and has been
hard at work since. "I've spent a lit-
tle time putting out the small fires
and taking care of problems as
they come," he said last week in his
office.
Since moving to the city from
Lakeland almost at the same time
he was hired, Chief Blackford con-
tinues to adapt and concentrates
now on setting an overview to help
him figure "the direction we're
headed in."
The strength of Pahokee's
Police Department, he said, is
found in the support of its commu-
nity. Chief Blackford believes that
many people in Pahokee are ready
to welcome a successful police
department. He is happy for that.
But the new chief also takes
note of the weaknesses of the
department, including the lack of
resources that the department
must work through in order to be

successful. "We need to be innova-
tive in what we do," he said.
One such step, explained the
new chief, is in getting the supervi-
sors out on the road with greater
frequency. Having such a limited
staff, it is sometimes difficult to pro-
vide uniform service to the city
without hiring additional officers.
Getting the staff that in the past had
focused on administrative duties to
now pitch in, he said, should bene-
fit the community.
"When you only have 14 or 15
members on your police depart-
ment, you can't afford the luxury of
five or six supervisors," he said. He
expects that his "working supervi-
sors," as well as everyone else on
board, will do double duty in mak-

cated about owning her own
home." Ms. Moreland worked
closely with the Belle Glade Pros-

also in Belle Glade.
To help pay for her new home,
Ms. Moreland saved $2,100 of her
own money, matched by another
$4,000 by the program. As part of
the program, Ms. Moreland was
carefully steered in the direction of
other grants, qualifying for an addi-

smoothly. The plan is to have as

The officers that have started
taking more training courses under
Interim Police Chief Calipto Gonza-
lez's.watch, will continue taking
the essential training in order to
perform professionally as officers
of the city, explained Chief Black-
ford.
The chief nonetheless remains
mindful of what he can accom-
plish in a short amount of time and
will take additional steps more
carefully'- with a plan firmly in
place before any big changes are
made. "One thing I don't want to
do is move too fast," he said.

In the time he has been at the
department, Chief Blackford has
also gotten to know the officers. He
describes them. "I think they're a
group of hard-working individuals
who are really dedicated to their
profession," he said. "It's a tough
job [being an officer], with time, it
will only get better." With the prop-
er training and supervision, the offi-
cers should prove an asset, he said.
As far as support from city hall
goes, he said, it has been a good
experience, with the new chief
feeling the support of the city com-
mission, along with the city man-
ager in his new venture. His work
will continue "diligently, to show
results."
He hopes that his work will pro-
duce the kind of outcome he
would like to see years from now,
including the possibility of hiring
additional employees and acquir-
ing better equipment for his staff.
That will come with the growth of
the city, he is confident.
Another of his tasks involves
updating the department's policy
and procedure manual, with the
hope of helping the police depart-
ment to earn accreditation -
which is perhaps his biggest goal.
In the meantime, the new chief
is finding his new home a pleasant
place to live and cherishes the
moments when he meets some-
one he knows at the local grocery
store. Living in a small city is
appealing to him.
"I've found the city of Pahokee
to be a warm and' friendly place,"
said the new chief. "Everybody
wants Pahokee to be a better place
to live, more than it already is."

"We keep talking about it,"
said Mayor Anthony. "We have

the issue?"
At a tri-cities meeting held last
month, the Glades cities agreed
that the summit will occur Sept.

fied by the three city managers

Red Devils stop



Brahmans 13-7


The Okeechobee Brahmans
traveled to Avon Park Friday
evening to take on the Red Dev-
ils and returned to Okeechobee
following their first loss of the
season 13-7.
In a game marred by
turnovers, fumbles and blown
assignments, the sole touch-
down for the Brahmans came
from an 80-yard pass from Virgil
Barrett to Rashad Kelly, followed
by a quarterback sneak across
the Red Devil goal line by Travis
Conrad.
"We didn't have a very good
week of practice and we played
exactly the same way we had


practiced," stated Brahman
head coach Chris Branham.
"We didn't even break 100
yards. We had practice sched-
uled for this morning (Monday)
and many didn't bother to show
up, I have a rule that if they can-
not make practice, they must
call and let me know. There may
be some players suspended for
the week if they do not have
good excuses for not attending
practice or at least checking in
with me."
The Brahmans will take on
the Lake Placid Dragons at Brah-
man Stadium on Sept. 9. Kick off
is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.


By Nina G. Wills
It was a stormy and wet Friday
night as rain poured down for a few
hours before the start of the game
between Class 2B state champion
Pahokee Blue Devils and newcom-
er King's Academy Lions. With
lightning strikes illuminating the
sky, the game was delayed for
almost an hour. Loyal rain-soaked
fans cheered their approval when
both teams finally ran onto the field
at 8:15 P.M.
Pahokee's opening drive was a
three and out resulting in a punt by
Jose Rodriguez. The punt was
blocked by the Lions and recovered
in Blue Devil territory. Lions quar-
terback David McDeavitt threw a
seven-yard pass to wide receiver
Jose Cabrera for a touchdown. It
was quite evident that Pahokee
was out of sync and never able to
establish a flow of the game. On
the Blue Devils next three drives,
another punt was blocked, the ball
was fumbled, and a high snap to
the punter resulted in a shaky punt.
In a much anticipated ball game


between two powerhouse football
games, where every yard and every
foot counts, the Lions from King's
Academy would hold the upper
hand in field position during a
game where weather played a
large factor.
The Blue Devils defense played
fairly well, but were unable to stop
the Lions on important drives. The
Lions added a field goal to their
lead before the half and Pahokee
was shutout for the entire first half.
During halftime, the Blue Devils
team did not go to the locker room.
Instead, the coaching staff huddled
with their team in the end zone and
talked to the players about the first
half. The conversation seemed to
rally the Blue Devils to come back
fighting in the second half.
On the first play of the third
quarter, Robert Love threw a lateral
pass that was dropped and recov-
ered by the Lions defense on Paho-
kee's own 11-yard line. One play
later, the Lions running back Vin-
cent Way ran the ball in for another
Lion's touchdown. The attempt at
the extra point failed. The score
was left with the Lions holding a 10-

6 advantage after the Blue Devil
miscue. The Blue Devils could
never move the ball offensively, and
the running backs could never find
breakaway run through a smother
Lion defense.
A glimmer of hope did emerge
late in the third quarter when Paho-
kee's defense recovered the ball in
Lion's territory. Robert "Rah Rah"
Love threw a five-yard. touchdown
pass to senior wide receiver Tamar-
cus Porter. Pahokee was finally on
the scoreboard. The team went for
the two-point conversion but the
run failed. In the waning minutes of
the game, Pahokee was unable to
put any positive yardage drives
together. In fact, the Blue Devils
only had 114 yards of total offense.
So, at 11:15 on Friday night, the
Pahokee Blue Devils lost their first
game of the season to the King's
Academy Lions. The final score:
Lions 16 Pahokee 6. It was heart-
breaking and disappointing defeat
for the defending state champion
Blue Devils players. But the fact of
the matter is this: The Pahokee
Blue Devils did not play with their
.- 7 ,- r




..&i


usual intensity, fire, and passion.
They did not show that Blue Devil's
swagger and resilience. Pahokee's
next game is at home against Pope
John Paul on Sept. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
The Blue Devils hope to rekindle
their fire, while shaking off their
season opening loss, a minor
obstacle in their bid to repeat as
state champions.
Team Statistics:
Robert Love was held to 42
yards of passing, 18 yards of rush-
ing, and threw one interception.
Janoris Jenkins rushed for 18 yards.
Anthony Atwell rushed for 26
yards. Vincent Smith rushed for
nine yards Tamarcus Porter had 17
yards of receiving and Antavious
Wilson had 29 yards of receiving.
The Blue Devils will be looking
to shake off the upset and get back
to gridiron business as the prepare
for Pope John Paul in their home
stadium with the support of the
12th man the faithful Pahokeee
Blue Devil fans who will be sure to
provide the support the team needs
to get their season back on track.

Lake area football thrown askew by Mother Nature


By Mark Young
Lake area football has been
thrown in disarray for some the
schools, due first to Hurricane Kat-
rina and then some Friday night
thunder boomers.
Glades Central and Glades Day
each had their season opening
games either cancelled or resched-
uled, while other teams managed
to hone their skills and calm their
jitters by getting in their games.
Case in point, is the Glades Cen-
tral Raiders who had to reschedule
their season opener against Palm
Beach Central, had an open date
for the following week, and will
now play their first game of the sea-
son, three weeks into the season
against Cardinal Newman.
The Raiders have yet to be test-
ed and must face the obstacle of
first game jitters already three,
weeks into the season.
The Pahokee Blue Devils faced
a similar scenario by missing their
first game only to end up playing a
soggy field against a tough King's
Academy team who brought down
the defending state champs by a


score 16-6. The Blue Devils will be
looking into getting back into a reg-
ular routine of winning as they face
Pope John Paul Sept. 9 at home.
The Clewiston Tigers were one
of the few lake area teams that
played through the threat of Hurri-
cane Katrina, but probably wish
they wouldn't have after being
beaten by American Heritage
(Plantation) on the home field by a
score of 27-13. The Tigers rebound-
ed to beat the Cowboys 14-7 on Fri-
day night to even their record at 1-1
before heading to Belle Glade
tomorrow night to face the Glades
Day Gators who are currently 0-1.
Okeechobee High School
opened their season strong with a
resounding 41-0 victory over
Moore Haven in the Kick Off Clas-
sic only to go on to defeat district
rival South Fork 35-22 in the regular
season opening. But the Brahmans
fell short against Avon Park 13-7 in
another soggy night of gridiron
action. The Brahmans will look to
continue their winning ways as
they face Lake Placid Sept. 9 at
home.
The Moore Haven vs. Frostproof


game was completely rained out
due to severe lightening and
according to head coach Andy
Ringstaff, the game will not be
rescheduled, leaving the Terrier
record standing at 0-1 after a heart-
breaking loss to Lake Placid in their
season opener last week.
The Terriers will be hosting
Jacksonville Christian Sept. 9 at
7:30 p.m.

Gators lose to Bucs; look


to Clewiston for rebound


By Mark Young

The Glades Day gators dropped
their first game of the season after
their scheduled opener again Eustis
was cancelled due to Hurricane
Katrina. The Benjamin Buccaneers
did managed to squeeze in their
season opener last Monday with a
victory, giving them a daunted task
of having to play their second game
in five days, but the tireless Bucs
showed no signs of wear of tear
against a stubborn Gator defense.
Benjamin fared well offensively,
but it would take more than a quar-
ter of play before they could sustain
a long offensive drive, which ended
up with a touchdown late in the
half and after a successful point
after attempt, went up 7-0 late in
the second.
The two squads had to endure
to lengthy weather delays, which
subsequently forced the game to
be postponed until the following
day, due to Benjamin High School
not having stadium lights.
The ensuing action should have
aided Glades Day who suffered
drive-killing penalties after drive
killing penalties. In all, the Gators
were penalized for more than 136
yards to Benjamin's 30 yards of
penalties.
Glades Day moved the ball up
the field with an effective offensive
scheme, but their season opening
cancellation showed it' ugly face in
miscues.


The Buccaneers were unable to
capitalize on every miscue, but
managed to add 10 points while
the Gators could only muster one
scoring drive when Josh McGregor
hit junior wide out Andrew Joseph
on a 52-yard strike, which resulted
in a ope-yard touchdownrun from.
Frank Lugo.
But a key injury to McGregor,:
who broke his collarbone and is
expected to miss the next six
weeks due to his injury, halted the
Gator's potent air attack, allowing
the Bucs to stack the box and play
the run effectively.
With Clewiston scheduled to
come to Gator Field Sept. 9, there is
room for concern as the Gator
coaching staff scrambles to look for
changes in 'their offensive game
plan.
"It's going to be a tough game
for us," said Gator head coach
Craig Dobson. "But at least we'll be
playing at home in front of our
hometown fans."
Junior wideout/defensive back
Brandon Smith is expect to take up
the quarterback position while
McGregor recovers from his
injuries. But despite the quarterback
worries, coach Dobson admits that
his team just didn't play well.
"We all looked at the game film
and recognize that we just didn't
playvery well," he said. "We'll have
to do better this week if we expect
to win against a tough football
team."

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO DO GOOD
WHY HIDE BEHIND HALF TRUTHS AND INNUENDOS
AN OPEN LETTER TO:
ROBERT BUKER, ROBERT COKER, DARREN SMITH

You profess to be a "concerned corporate citizen", when in reality, your attacks against HRMC's
administration, its board and PTD have been designed to discredit all parties that serve in these
capacities. You have launched and pursue a frontal attack to get the hospital tax to "go away" and
save you taxes today and in the future. You are concerned only about your bottom line and not the
citizens of Hendry County. These citizens, as well as your employees, overwhelmingly say they
don't want the hospital to close. You tell only portions of the truth, and hide or ignore many impor-
tant facts.

AS PAUL HARVEY WOULD SAY, NOW HERE IS THE REST OF .THE STORY.

For the past 8 months, you have viscously attacked Hendry Regional Medical Center (HRMC) and
Physical Therapy Dynamics (PTD) in words, print and legal bullying in a reprehensive manner. You
sued PTD for its business records of the last 5 years. Not wanting to fight an expensive legal battle,
the entire business records for the last 5 years were provided by PTD to you in May of this year. In
your recent ad, you chose only to discuss the income of PTD, and insinuated that HRMC pays all
overhead expenses of PTD. SHAME ON YOU You have all the facts in your hands and you don't
tell the whole story or truth.

So here it is: PTD has averaged $457,442.00 income from 2 contracts (HRMC & Hendry County
School Board). Over the same 5-year period, PTD has had employee salaries and benefits for 9
employees and 1 contract OT averaging $399,472.00. PTD further pays for/provides equipment and
office supplies at both Clewiston and LaBelle. Even though you have all the numbers, you also
choose to further mislead the citizens of Hendry County by not acknowledging the fact that Hendry
Regional makes a substantial profit each year from its business relationship with Physical Therapy
Dynamics.

Physical Therapy Dynamics has been in business as a locally owned physical therapy service with
four therapist- owners since 1986. It was only in the last 10 years that the location of the therapy
department moved off the campus of HRMC. This relocation occurred as a result of HRMC 's need
for additional space within the hospital for other departments, and a concurrent expansion to a sec-
ond clinic in LaBelle. The agreement HRMC has with PTD is that the hospital provides utilities and
a physical space in which PTD can operate, and during the first 9 years of the agreement, the hos-
pital was able to provide the space on its campus.

Here is another important truth you fail to note in words and written print. PTD's relationship with
HRMC predated by 2 years Miller Couse's appointment to the HRMC Board.,PTD started its rela-
tionship with HRMC in Oct. 1986 and Miller Couse was appointed to the HRMC Board in Oct. 1988.

The contract between PTD and HRMC is a two- year automatic-renewing contract with a 90-day
termination clause. NO WHERE is there a NO- BID clause in it. Could it be the hospital is very sat-
isfied with its therapy services provided by therapists who live in Clewiston/LaBelle and raise their
families in these communities? SHAME ON YOU You have the contract in your hands and you
don't tell the citizens of Hendry County the truth.

You state that PTD is the largest vendor serving HRMC. Once again, you fail to provide the truth.
The vendor for the hospital's employee health plan and the vendor providing the emergency room
physician services are both larger than PTD. If you are so concerned about the welfare of HRMC as
you would like the people to believe, we ask Since early this year, why are you routing your work-
ers comp cases away form HRMC to Glades General Hospital, thereby forcing your employees to
travel to Belle Glade for care?" It's time to stop whining and pay your portion of the taxes as other
good corporate citizens do, rather than wasting money on frivolous lawsuits and mass mailings.

We want to thank the many individuals in Hendry and Glades counties who have offered over-


whelming support to encourage us in this attackinstigated by you. IT HAS BEEN GRATIFYING
TO HEAR THE CITIZEN'S SUPPORT FOR THE HOSPITAL.

In closing, let the record state that the Spiritual Law of sowing and reaping is ALWAYS in effect,
and take stock, because you will reap what you sow. As for us, we choose to sow Truth.

FFA's First chapter meeting of 2005-2006


By Rachael Hancock
Clewiston FFA Reporter
Our meeting was held in the
Ag room at 2:30-3:30 p.m. at
Clewiston High School. There
were 63 students present at the
meeting as well as our new prin-
cipal Dr. Egly and Mr. Swindle.
Dr. Egly, our guest speaker, gave
a wonderful speech. He started
off reading parts of our Creed
and stated that it was a perfect
example for every one to follow
not just the FFA. He also talked
about his time in FFA and how it
helped him be the person and
principal he is today.
In the meeting we talked
about what we did over the
summer and what we learned
from our experiences. Kim Field-
er and Lauren Hall talked about
State Convention, Rachael Han-
cock and Brandon Drake talked
about a Leadership program
(Florida Leadership Adven-
tures), and Adam Haire talked
about working cows out at our
land lab, which we call 480 since
it is 480 acres. We also voted Vic-
tor Berrios in as a new officer to
the team. He is now our Student

skit to explain the importance of
teamwork.
Also at the meeting, we had
four prizes. The first prize was a
movie gallery gift card, second,
was bonus points for coming to
the meeting, third, a Wal-Mart gift

card, and fourth was a brand new
toy model four wheeler. When
we drew the winning name for
the four wheeler, the person
thought it was a real usable four
wheeler. At the end of the meet-
ing everyone gathered into the
shop (place where we build
things connected behind the


.classroom) for food and to see
the prize. When we opened the
gate for everyone to see, sitting
there on the ground was the toy
model. The facial expression was
priceless. We had a lot of fun at
this chapter meeting and hope
there will be just as many people
and fun for next month.

Managers to move


additional water


Water levels continue tO
recede at a good pace in areas
flooded by heavy rainfall from
the impact of Hurricane Katri-
na in southern Miami-Dade
County. Just after impact,
storm-water in the Home-
stead area rose to as much as
21-feet above ground in some
areas. South Florida Water
Management District canals,
which had been lowered
approximately one foot before
the storm hit, moved billions
of gallons of water almost
immediately to the east and to
the ocean.
"Given the terrible tragedy
that has occurred in
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama, we have much to be
thankful for in regard to the
impact we sustained while
being mindful of what poten-
tially could have happened
here without proper prepara-
tion," said District Governing
Board Member Irela Bagu .
"Field station crews through-
out the District, working close-
ly with our Miami-Dade
Regional Service Center and
Emergency Operations Center
staffs, are to be commended
for their tireless efforts before,
during and after the storm to
make sure all the structures
and pump stations were run-
ning at 100 percent and that
nothing was blocking water
from making its way to the
ocean." Bagu added.
Lowering the water levels
in the district canals ahead of
the storm allowed the opera-
tors of the secondary systems
(city and county canals) to
lower their levels, increasing
room to accommodate heavy
storm-water runoff. On Aug.
24, water managers were
releasing maximum amounts
from eastern coastal struc-
tures on the canals in anticipa-
tion of the large inflow from
the west.
Today, all coastal structures
continue to operate at full
capacity to allow for the maxi-
mum recession of water in the
southern Miami-Homestead-
Florida City area. The district is


using forward pumping sta-
tions to assist in forcing water
to the coast. Areas closest to
the coast are seeing the earli-
est recession.
No flooding was reported
in the areas along the C-4
(Tamiami Canal) Basin in
western Miami-Dade County.
This can be attributed to the
new flood control structures,
pumping stations and C-4
detention basin added in the
Sweetwater, West Miami,
Flagami areas over the last 18
months. The additions
allowed water managers to
pump water out of the area to
the east at high tide when
water movement to the east
would normally be impossi-
ble; additionally, to pump
water to the west and store it
in a large detention area, alle-
viating the possibility that
water would stack up in the
lower lying areas of west
Miami-Dade County near
Miami International Airport.
The floodwaters in the
Homestead area and the L-31
North and C-111 canals near
Everglades National Park are
steadily receding but at a
slower pace because of the
large amount of water left by
Katrina. Water levels in the
western areas are showing
significant declines today with
some roads once impassable
now being reopened. Some
areas in Florida City will lag
behind other areas for water
recession because they are
not connected to the district's
regional canal system.
District field station crews
and canal system operations
and maintenance staff will
continue working round the
clock to make sure maximum
drainage releases are continu-
ing in the affected areas. The
district also reminds citizens
to stay out of the canals and
away from water control
structures as the velocity of
water exiting the impacted
areas is too great and not safe
for swimming or boating at
this time.

Big Lake Scramble set for Oct. 22


CLEWISTON Plans for the
2005 Big Lake Scramble golf tour-
nament are underway. The Clewis-

Senior


storefront
TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist, Leon Coun-
ty Sheriff Larry Campbell and Tal-
lahassee Chief of Police Walt
McNeil opened a storefront oper-
ation in Tallahassee as part of the
hugely successful Seniors vs.
Crime project.
The new storefront, located in
the Senior Citizen Center at 1400
North Monroe Street, will serve as
a type of "one-stop shopping"
facility for elders who believe they
have been victimized by fraud or
some other crime. The new Talla-
hassee Storefront is the 25th store-
front in the state, and is the first
storefront to be opened with the
cooperation of both the sheriff's
office and the police department.
Seniors vs. Crime volunteers,
often called "Senior Sleuths," will
staff the storefront to provide a
place for potential victims to file a
complaint, discuss their concerns
with peers and receive other
assistance.
To date, Senior Sleuths have
received more than 5,600 com-
plaints, with a successful resolu-
tion rate of 78 percent last year.
"The Storefront program
sends the message to seniors that
they can fight back they can
make a difference," said Crist.
"Con artists and other criminals
can no longer think of older resi-
dents as easy targets, because our
seniors have the means to protect
themselves."
More than $3.8 million has been
recovered for senior victims
through storefronts, and Storefront
Senior Sleuths have been directly
responsible for more than 150
criminal charges being brought
against companies and individuals.


free drinks, a Pan con Lechon
luncheon and plenty of great raffle
prizes. The proceeds from the tour-
nament will benefit the Manuel V
Iglesias Scholarship Foundation
and the recipients of its memorial
scholarships.
Each year, the Big Lake Scram-
ble is successful in raising funds for


those deserving high school sen-
iors in'the Hendry County area.
The tournament will consist of a
three-person scramble, with regis-
tration taking place at 7:30 a.m. on
the day of the tournament, and a 9
a.m. shotgun start. It is a $100 per
persofi entry fee, which will
include a tournament gift bag, golf,


range balls, contests, food, and
beverages.
Sponsorship opportunities are
still available.
For more information about the
tournament or the foundation,
please call Ramon Iglesias at (863)
599-0460 or Jorge Iglesias at (305)
788-4182.

HENDRY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
Pupil Progression- Promotion/Retention

No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other
factors that constitute social promotion. Florida Statute 1008.25 requires
that any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency In reading, based
upon locally determined or statewide assessments conducted in kinder-
garten, grade 1, grade 2, or grade 3 must be given Intensive reading Instruc-
tion immediately following the identification of the reading deficiency. The
student's reading proficiency must be reassessed by locally determined
assessments, orthrough teacher observations at the beginning of the grade
following the intensive reading instruction. The student must continue to be
provided with Intensive reading instruction until the reading deficiency is
remedied.
If a student's reading deficiency Is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as
demonstrated by scoring at Level 2 or higher on the statewide assessment
test in reading for grade 3, the student must be retained.
The parent of any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading
must be notified in writing of the following:
1. That his/her child has been Identified as having a substantial deficien-
cy in reading.
2. A description of the current services that are provided to the child.
3. A description of the proposed supplemental instructional services
and supports that will be provided to the child that are designed to
remediate the identified area of reading deficiency.
4. That If the child's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of
grade 3, the child must be retained unless he/she is exempt from
mandatory retention for good cause. -
5. Strategies for parents to use in helping their child succeed In reading
proficiency.
6. That the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) Is notthe
sole determiner of promotion and that additional evaluations, portfo-
lio reviews, and assessments are available to the child to assist par-
ents and the school district in knowing when a child is reading at or
above'grade level and ready for grade promotion.
7. The districts criteria and policies for mid-year promotion.
8. Beginning with the 2004-05 school year, each school district shall
provide written notification to the parent of any student, who Is
retained because his/her reading deficiency is not remedied by the
end of third grade, that his/her child has not met the proficiency level
required for promotion, and the reasons the child is not eligible for a
good cause exemption as provided by Florida law. The notification
must include a description of proposed interventions and support
that will be provided to the child to remediate the identified areas of
reading deficiency.
Successful Prooression for Retained Readers
The 2004 Legislature amended section 1008.25, Florida Statutes, to create
a new paragraph (7) that provides that all students who are retained In third
grade must be provided Intensive Interventions In reading to ameliorate the
students' reading deficiency, as identified by a valid and reliable diagnostic
assessment. This Intensive intervention must include effective Instruction-
al strategies, participation in the school district's summer reading camp,
and appropriate teaching methodologies necessary to assist those students
In- becoming successful readers, able to read at or above grade level, and
ready for'promotion to the next grade. -
This section also requires each school district to establish at each school,
where applicable, an Intensive Acceleration Class for retained third grade
students who subsequently score at Level 1 on the reading portion of the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The focus of this class
shall be to increase a child's reading level at least two grade levels in one
year. The school is required to report the following:
Mid-Year Promotion
According to provisions In the Hendry County School District Pupil
Progression. Plan, students who were retained the previous year may be
considered for mid-year promotion provided the student has demonstrated
the ability to read at grade level and shows mastery of the state standards
for the grade level in which he/she was retained. The student must have the.
skills necessary to successfully function at the grade level to which be/shbe
is being promoted mid-year.
Good Cause Exemption fromm Mandatory Retention
The Hendry County School Board may only exempt students from manda-
tory retention for good cause as stated in Florida Statute 1008.25.
According to this statute, good cause exemptions shall be limited to the fol-
lowing:
1. Limited English proficient students who have had less than two years
of Instruction In an English for Speakers of Other Languages
Program.
2. Students with disabiities whose individual education plan Indicates
that participation in the statewide assessment program is not appro-
priate, consistent with the requirements of State Board of Education
rule.
3. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance on all
alternative standardized reading assessment approved by the State
Board of Education..
4. Students who demonstrate, through a student portfolio, that he/she
Is reading on grade level as evidenced by demonstration of mastery
of the Sunshine State Standards in reading equal to at least a Level
2 performance on the FCAT.
5. Students with disabilities who participate In the FCAT, and who have
an individual education plan or a Section 504 plan that reflects that
the student has received the intensive remedlation In reading for
more than two years but still demonstrates a deficiency In reading,
and was previously retained in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade 2.
6. Students who have received the Intensive remediation in reading for
two or more years, but still demonstrate a deficiency in reading, and
who were previously retained in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade 2 for
a total of two years. -
The district school board must annually report to the parent of each student
the progress of the student toward achieving state and district expectqtons
for proficiency in reading, writing, science, and mathematics. Student
results on each statewide assessment must be reported to the parent. The
evaluation of each student's progress must be based upon the student's
classroom work, observations, tests, district and state assessments, and
other relevant information.
