Locals urged to participate


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

PAHOKEE According to
Alvin Jackson of the Nova Con-
sulting Firm, who works closely
with the South Florida Water
Management District, the time
for local contractors, vendors
and workers to act is now.
With millions of dollars at
stake in the various environmen-
tal projects that are coming to
South Florida, locals are poised
to at least take part in the venture,


Mr. Jackson said. He urged them
to work toward that goal.
A group of projects referred to
as Acceler8 known as such
because they have been selected
to be implemented in the near
future are off shoots of the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Project. Their accel-
erated status makes them proj-
ects that can involve local busi-
nesses in their installation.
Currently, the district finds
itself conducting an expanded


business outreach to help "small-
er, local firms be part of the
action, too." With representa-
tives identifying and visiting
directly with local vendors and
contractors, the district hopes to
involve as many local people as
possible to benefit from the con-
struction projects under the
Acceler8 program.
Partners in the effort include
Palm Beach Community College,
the Glades Community Develop-
ment Corporation and the Work-


force Development Office. The
partnership is committed to,
among other goals, finding peo-
ple interested in working to qual-
ify for the jobs that are coming
thisway.
While the resources are being
made available, both the district
and even the local government
say that most people in the
Glades do not realize how much
they can benefit from the Accel-
er8 program. Perhaps because
the message has not been


relayed to them, or because they
do not feel they have the qualifi-
cations, many in the Glades who
are looking for a job have not yet
made the effort to work with the
partnership that offers job train-
ing and a complete curriculum
that promises to prepare them
with the necessary skills to gain
employment with contractors.
"As we move forward, we are
working hard to get these local

Wanted man




surrenders


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Facing
accusations of attempted mur-
der, a suspect in a knifing case
turned himself over to police
last week. The man is said to
have beaten
severely his
live-in girl-
friend's sis-
ter in South
Bay, after a
small argu-
ment grew
heated and
turned
almost Robert
deadly. Winston
The sus- Morgon
pect took
himself to- the Belle Glade
Police Department, where he
was taken into custody and
arrested a few days after the
stabbing incident. Robert Win-
ston Morgan, 42, of South Bay
was taken to jail to await pro-
cessing.


Morgan had been sought by
the sheriff's office, with
deputies and local agencies
keeping an eye out for the run-
away suspect, before he turned,
himself in for his role in the
attack.
Investigators with the Vio-
lent Crimes Division of the
Palm.Beach County Sheriff's
Office say Morgan allegedly
struck 22-year-old Rakiska
Ward of South Bay with a vehi-
cle and then followed her
through his residence in South
Bay continuing to attack her.
Ward received multiple cuts to
her face after being,stabbed by
Morgan, transported to St.
Mary's Hospital in West Palm
Beach via TraumaHawk for
treatment of her injuries.
According to the investiga-
tors, Ward is the sister of Mor-
gan's girlfriend, Tina Kurry, 27,
with whom he lived. The argu-
ment reportedly resulted when,

PAHOKEE You see them
on occasion, bikers riding
through the area in groups,
maybe doing a little sightsee-
ing or just enjoying a casual
drive through the area. Some-
times, they stop in for a quick
lunchat a local eatery or just
visit a local store.
Capitalizing on that oppor-
tunity, a group of locals in
Pahokee are organizing a
unique event that will cater to
that special demographic,
though organizers are hoping
that local residents will also


participate in the fun-filled
event.
The event is being called
the Pahokee GatorBike Fest, a
one-stop shop event that will
take place Oct. 15. Lelah
Marzi, one of the organizers of
the event, is excited at the
prospect of the new festival
coming to town.

Oct. 15 is quickly shaping up
to be a stellar first showing of
the new festival. To take place

BELLE GLADE Local lead-
ers and county officials joined'
Saturday afternoon to break
ground at the future site of the
Lake Region Water Treatment
Plant, a multi-million dollar,
state-of-the-art facility that
promises to deliver clean drink-
ing water to local residents.
The event marks the culmi-
nation of years of work on the
part of county staff, as well as
participation locally from the tri-
cities area of Belle Glade, Paho-
kee and South Bay-which col-
laborated in the planning of the
water plant.
"This is work I was told could
never be done," said Palm
Beach County Commissioner
Tony Masilotti. "We could never
get county utilities and three
separate cities to do the right
thing at the right time. When
folks tell me it's- impossible, it
just makes the day a little bit
sweeter."
For the first time in a long
time, officials said, the Glades


Motorcycle cop targets speeders


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

BELLE GLADE If while
driving down the road at your
"regular" speed you spot a
motorcycle trailing you with
lights and sirens blaring, then you
most likely have played your part
in helping Belle Glade's motorcy-
cle officer put in another fine day
at the job.
Just don't cringe when the
man thanks you with praise that
can only be expressed through a
written citation.
For two months now, Officer
James Dingle, with the Belle
Glade Police Department, has
been setting his sites on
patrolling key areas of the city
known for containing aggressive
and unsafe drivers. The patrol is
an effort to cut down on acci-


dents that might occur with vehi-
cles driving through the areas
without caution.
According to Officer Dingle,
the department had to put to rest
its, old bike, as it was no longer
safe to keep it on the road in its
condition, and started searching
for a replacement. When a grant
came up that paid for a new bike,
the department jumped on it.
Now; the station has a shiny,
new 2005 Harley Davidson Road
King at its disposal. A pretty sight
to behold to most, the bike most
likely will not be welcomed by
the drivers it will begin pulling
over. One of the key components
to the grant that has funded the
motorcycle is the stipulation that
the bike be used to target aggres-
sive drivers. Aggressive drivers
are drivers who commit two
moving violations at once, i.e.,


speeding while following too
closely, etc.
Most times they are just sim-
ple cases of people who "are in a
hurry and hoping they won't get
caught," said Officer Dingle. Nev-
ertheless, the drivers must
adhere to the rules of the road, he
said. With the bike in place, Offi-
cer Dingle will be focusing his
efforts on that subject.
Several spots that Officer Din-
gle has taken a liking to include
the school zones found through-
out the city. Just in time for
school letting out, you may spot
the bike resting at a corner or
some other concealed spot, wait-
ing to stop wayward drivers.
Because of its small size, the bike
is the perfect vehicle for staying

All you who labor (in the aftermath of Katrina)


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's been said that a million
monkeys sitting at a million key-
boards, given enough time could
recreate the complete works of
Shakespeare. Now that we have
the Internet, however, we know
that's not true! Even if monkeys
could reproduce Shakespeare, it
would be a random act of
chance, not a planned work of
art, or timeless commentary on
the human condition. Let me
propose that work without direc-
tion, without purpose, without
vision, without inspiration, and
without meaning is not really
work. Furthermore, work at its
best is inspired by the presence of
God in our midst.
This has been evident as we
have been and still are laboring in
the midst of the tragedy left in the
wake of Katrina. The very things
we normally celebrate on Labor
Day took on special meaning this
year. The calloused hands, the
sweaty brows, the determination,


the roar of bulldozers, and all of
the other images of the work that
built this nation are the images
we've been seeing these last two
weeks whenever we turned on
the television.
And maybe that's why this has
also been such a hard time for so
many of us. This storm has laid
waste the -labors of generations,
the hopes which have been sus-
tained over lifetimes of hard work
and wondrous creativity. At times
it seemed. surreal. At times I
became overwhelmed andthad
to turn the television off. Winston
Churchill once said, "To build
may have to be the slow and
laborious task of years. To destroy
can be the thoughtless act of a
single day." It is astounding what
one storm can destroy so quickly.
But in the midst pf this, there is
hope. God worked to create a uni-
verse and has been at the job of
sustaining creation since the begin-
ning of time. To be created in God's
image means, at least in part, that
we have the capacity to create and


re-create, to build and rebuild.
Some are saying we must
rebuild on higher ground. I
know they're talking about dirt,
but maybe in this tragedy there is
an opportunity to rebuild on a
different kind of higher ground. I
once heard the goal of rebuild-
ing is to get things back to nor-
mal, and that normal is getting
dressed in clothes that you buy
for work and driving through
traffic in a car that you are still
paying for in order to get to the
job you need to pay for the
clothes and the car, and the
house that you leave vacant all
day long so you can afford to live
in it. If that is normal, then
maybe we need to strive for
something better than normal,
not only in the Gulf Coast, but in
the living out of all of our days.
God calls us to work for the
right things, for the right reasons,
in the right ways. In the midst of
this, God knows that there will
be times when despite all of our
best efforts and hard work, our


work will seem in vain and all of
our labors just wasted time. God
knows there will be times when
we will become stressed or over-
whelmed. So God tells us,
"Come to me, all you that are
weary, who are carrying heavy
loads, and I will give.you rest.
Take my work upon you, and
learn from me; for I am gentle
and humble in heart, and you
will find rest for your souls."
So let us not be discouraged.
Let us work with the conviction
that whatever our work, it is
offered to glorify God, to bring
about a better world, to built on
higher ground a world where jus-
tice and righteousness are the
foundations of all we build. Let us
build upon the rock of God's
greater purposes. And when we
are tired and worn and stressed,
and when we face tragedies pre-
viously unimaginable, let us
come to our God, knowing that
God will give rest to our souls and
renewal to our spirits.


The gift of grace; the power to overcome the past


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.-+
Saint Martin's' Church, Clewis-
ton
When we were speculating
about hurri-
canes and ,-'"' '
their origins
from Africa,
someone sug- .
gested '-
"maybe a but-
terfly flaps its
wings too vig-
orously and
starts the air
currents." SamuelS.
That sounds a Thomas
bit far-fetched,
but nobody seems to have a
fool-proof explanation of what
gets the air currents going that
wind up as tropical waves,,tropi-
cal disturbances, tropical
depressions, tropical storms and
hurricanes.
Likewise, there are people
that are convinced that their cur-
rent life, problems are due to
some tragedy they've identified
in the past. Somebody did
something way back when, and
they've never been the same
since.
One of the mentors I encoun-
tered put it this way: "Everyone
has a 'peg' in the past where
they can hang a 'myth'."
Sometimes you hear stories
about people who believe what
happened to them ages ago
keeps them from being who
they want to be and makes them


be who they don't want to be.
Not so! There is a related pas-
sage about that in the New Tes-
tament attributed to Paul;, "By
the Grace of God, I am what I
am and His grace to me was not
without effect -1 Corinthians
15:10".
We are what we are by God's
'grace and, as someone put it
"God doesn't make any junk!"
The images become tarnished,
the body becomes bruised, the
person is disrespected, the flesh
is weak, the failures occur, but
God doesn't make any junk.
Over the years my cars or trucks
show signs of wear the
upholstery starts to wear thin,
the glass covering the instru-
ments gets dirty, the door sills
never are totally clean, the stains
from spilled beverages leave
their traces, the door panels
show signs where arms have
rested on them, there are a few
derits here and there, but they
keep going.
It is the drive train, the motor,
the transmission, the rear end,
the axles and steering gear that

Thank you!
We the family of the late Gen-
nie L. Grimsley would like to

kindness shown to us in time of
our bereavement. May God bless
all of you. The Grimsley family.


makes the difference when it
comes to reliability and trans-
portation.
The rest is nice to,have but
not really essential. The tropical
storm or hurricane makes the
difference the theory about
butterflies or "el nino" doesn't
matter too much when it is time
to prepare. The life to be lived is
to be lived today, and it doesn't
matter much what happened
way back when it is what we
are today and what we are is
what we make of it by His grace.
Paul mentions sufferings that
have been inflicted on him -
all sorts of things happened to
him in his life (2 Corinthians
11). He speaks also of "a thorn
in my flesh" to torment him and
his plea to God to take it away
(2 Corinthians 12:7ff). Paul
comes to understand that it is
God's grace that is sufficient -
that same grace that keeps us
from being tied to myths or
excuses.
Paul says through his weak-
ness his power is perfected. He
can say, "I've been there I
know" and convey that in spite


of it all, we go on. Paul gives a
long' list of "pegs" in his past;
shipwrecks, beatings, robbers,
dangers from both his own and
others, hunger, cold, imprison-
merit, and physical problems,
but he goes on. His "drixe train"'
is intact it is powered by
God's 'grace. That was God's
answer when Paul spoke about
all that he had to suffer, "My
grace is sufficient for you, for my
power is made perfect in weak-
ness (2 Corinthians 12:9)."
What is considered weak-
ness is not what makes a differ-
ence that power in us today,
grace, will make the difference.
Blaming, finding excuses, look,
ing backwards rememberr Lot's
wife look at what happened
to her when she looked back!)
isn't an answer. We are what we
are, through God's grace, but
that is certainly enough. Not
only God doesn't make any
junk: He builds it with the capa-
bility of doing some self-repair
along the way when they're
needed. That's better engineer-
ing than I got when I purchased
my last truck!

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My family
and I are so upset about what we
have seen on television regarding
the disaster in New Orleans by
Katrina. We are so very con-
cerned about all the dogs and
cats. Where can we send money
to contribute to saving the ani-
mals, and how do we go about it?
Thanks Doc, Billy in Clewiston.
A: Hi Billy! I've been asked that
question several times lately, and I
had to do a bit of research. There
are so many organizations out
there, and you really want to
make sure it is a reputable one. I
saw many good ones, but there is
one in particular that we at the
office are sending money to as
well. It is called The American
Humane Association based out of
Miami. They have a nice Web site
at http://www.americanhu-
mane.org and there phone num-
ber is (305) 792-9900. Great Ques-
tion Billy! Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is there any
way to either determine, get an
idea of, or guess as asto'what type of
personality or demeanor your pet
will have as they develop? Thanks
Doc, Betsy in Royal Palm Beach.
A: Well Betsy, this is the type of
question that may have a subjec-
tive answer! My opinion about
personality or character is that it is
something that develops based
on early experiences. I think I
remember learning that a child's
personality develops by age five.
For. dogs and cats it may be as
early as six months! However, in
either case, my opinion is that you.
really see what some person, or
pet is made of when they are
upset. How a'person/dog/cat han-
dles themselves when angry is a
good way to see what they are
made of.
Hope that helps! .Doc Savvy.

Pet of the Week winner
It's the return of "Little Jake". Jake was featured in a South Lake news story some time
ago as being the sole survivor of an attempt to destroy a litter of kittens. A kind citizen
discovered the litter in a dumpster and only Little Jake was still alive. Jake found his way
into the caring hands of Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital, in Belle Glade and soon found a
caring home. He deserves a trip back to see Doc Savvy for a day of pampering in Doc
Savvy's pet spa, as this week's Pet of the Week winner. The new owner of Little Jake can
contact Doc Savvy at (561) 996-5500. If you have an "interesting" photo of your pet, sub-
mit it to myoung@newszap.com for a chance to win your pet a day at the spa, sponsored

The Bonita Bay Group Rallies for


Hurricane Katrina relief efforts


BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. -
Employees of The Bonita Bay
Group have donated more than
$31,000 toward relief efforts by
the American Red Cross in Hurri-
cane Katrina-ravaged Louisiana
and the northern Gulf Coast.
A nine-day collection drive
raised .$31,297, which was
matched dollar-for-dollar by the
Bonita Springs-based company. A
resident of one of the company's
seven master-planned communi-
ties heard about the drive and
donated $1,000, bringing the total
contribution to $63,594.
Sabra Cecil, vice president of
human resources- for The Bonita
Bay Group, said more than 200,
employees made a contribution
on behalf of the .company's
American Red Cross fund.
"We notified everyone on
.Sept. I we wer'_ laying donations
and by .Sept. 9 had raised
$31,297," she said. "Everyone got
behind it absolutely 100 percent.
The greatest thing was seeing
how good contributing made the
employees feel. They knew, with
the company match, if they
donated $100, it was going to be
$200. If they gave $10, it was
going to be $20."
The company expects to raise
additional funds through a Sept.
19 charity pro-am golf tourna-
mentat Verandah's Old Orange
golf course in Fort Myers.

and destruction of my home
state," said Garon.. "But it's also
been heartwarming to see the

4 OPINION


Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, September 22, 2005


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Belle Glade/South Bay issues blog at http//newsblog.info/0901.
It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and
share your comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please).
You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at 996-6636. Comments will be published in the newspa-
per as space permits.
PORNORGRAPHY BAN: Citizens of Belle Glade, South Bay, and
maybe Pahokee. Did you know that (business name deleted) is selling
adult videos. We had a video store here that sold movies and the citi-
zens, the churches raised so much sand, until they went out of busi-
ness. Now, this wasn't an American person, not discriminating against
anyone, but how can these people purchasing (these stations) can
come over here and sell adult videos and the churches and the citizens
won't rise up and do something about it?
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. Speak Out policy dictates that we
will not use a business or private citizen name unless that business or
citizen has already been featured in a related story.

WHAT TO DO?: I don't know what those of us living in Belle Glade
are going to do. Thieves are taken whatever they want with no fear of
being caught. Many of us have had things stolen from our homes or
vehicles and businesses this summer. And when we call the police
they just take the information over the phone and don't even bother to
come out. The city commission members, can't you get the chief of
police in Belle Glade to offer our citizens better protection than that?

I NO SPEAK-A THE LANGUAGE: Hi, I'm a concerned citizen in the
town of Belle Glade. Before the 21st Century, we were discriminated
against of the color of our skin. Beyond the 21st Century, the problem
we face as Americans is the language that we speak. There are plenty
of free classes to help the non-speaking people with their learning
skills to help communicate in today's society. There are classes for
bilingual speaking American citizens to go out and translate for non-
English speaking people. But are there any free classes to help us Eng-
lish-speaking Americans learn their bilingual language? The answer is
no. Our children are learning from the school system so that back in
the baby boomer generation, there were no classes that offered Span-
ish, unless it was an elected class. Living in today's world, we are being
turned down for jobs because we are not bilingual, not because of our
education, color, or work experience. Just simply because we do not
speak the right language.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. This call was quite lengthy and
had to be edited. To avoid this process, callers are encouraged to sub-
mit their comments in the form of a letter to the editor, but must be
signed, with a contact number for verification.

BRINGING IN THE BUSINESS Hallelujah. Pahokee has a mayor
who has the uncanny ability to convince prospective buyers that Paho-
kee is where it's at. I believe that Mayor Sasser has Pahokee and its citi-
zens' best interest at heart. My observation is that Mayor Sasser has no
personal agenda and loves what he's doing. It's my hope that the citi-
zens of Pahokee will support J.P. for as long as he is willing to serve.
Thank you J.P.

I WANT TO KNOW: I'd like to know what Chief Dowdell has done
to our Belle Glade Police Department? These officers are leaving so
quickly we're not even going to have a police department. Look at
how many burglaries and robbers we had lately. It already seems like
we don't have one. Now, these officers have always been poorly paid,
but they didn't leave like this under Chief Miller. What's Dowdell doing
to make them leave like this? I want to know.



Bill severs FEMA from


Homeland Security..


Foley: Bureaucracy
is getting in the
way of saving lives
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Rep. Mark Foley (FL-16)
announced he has introduced
legislation separating the Feder-
al Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) from the
Department of Homeland
Security (DHS).
"This is not solely a
response to the tragedy in the
Gulf it is the result of the
increasing evidence that FEMA
should not be hindered by a
top-heavy bureaucracy when
needed to act swiftly to save
.lives," said Foley. "After suffer-
ing through three direct hurri-
cane hits last summer and


watching my friends in the Gulf
weather Katrina, I have seen
one consistent problem: Red
tape and bureaucratic obsta-
cles getting in the way of saving
lives."
.Foley added, "Decisions that
were once made quickly and
efficiently at FEMA now have to
go through a web of paper-
work, authorizations and
releases before they can be
made adding further risk to
people. We need to make
FEMA the gold standard of
emergency relief. Our goal is to
turn that agency into the rapid-
response and long-term
response disaster agency that
FEMA wants to be."
Foley originally called for the
separation of FEMA from DHS
in April of 2004.

Water managers ready for Tropical Storm


Flood-control structures oper-
ating at maximum capacity
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is rapidly prepar-
ing for heavy rains expected from
Tropical Storm Rita by optimizing
operation of the 2,000-mile
regional water management
canal system. The primary canal
system is at pre-storm levels
meaning District canals have
been lowered 1.5 feet in anticipa-
tion of heavy rain. The canals will
continue to discharge as needed.
"All western pumping stations
and flood-control structures in
Miami-Dade County have been
running at maximum capabilities
since midnight Saturday in antici-
pation of heavy rain over the
region," said Jos Fuentes, Dis-
trict Miami-Dade Regional Service
Center Director.
"It is standard operating proce-
dure for the South Florida Water
Management District to be proac-
tive and prepare early," said Gov-
erning Board Vice-Chair Irela
Bagu6 from Miami-Dade County.
"We utilize all available resources
including the new C-4 (Tamiami
Canal) Basin water-control sys-
tem to reduce the potential for


flooding in areas such as Sweet-
water, West Miami and Flagami
that historically have seen flood-
ing events for similar storms."
The National Weather Ser-
vice/National Hurricane Center 11
a.m. advisory forecasts rainfall
amounts of 4 to 6 inches in Mon-
roe and southern Miami-Dade
counties with local maximums as
high as 8 to 10 inches. Central and
northern Miami-Dade County and
Broward County can expect 2 to 4
inches of rain associated with
Tropical Storm Rita, while the
remaining areas of the District are
forecast to receive 1 to 3 inches.
"Our water control facilities
such as pumping stations, flood
control gates and field station
communications are 100 percent
operational," said Bob Howard,
the agency's director of opera-
tions. "Field crews are receiving
assignments for operations
throughout the next 24 hours and
are following standard operating
procedures of filling fuel tanks for
extended operations and prepar-
ing for round-the-clock recovery
efforts. We're doing everything
possible to enhance the ability of
local drainage facilities to be able


to route excess runoff into the Dis-
trict's primary canal system."
Secondary systems such as
city and county canals, are gain-
ing capacity through movement
of water into the District's primary
canal system prior to the storm.
Regionally, District field crews
are taking these-pre-storm opera-
tions actions:
Monroe and Southern Miami
Dade counties
Workers continue to clear tree
debris left from Hurricane Katrina
from District canal banks. All
equipment and water control
structures and pumping stations
are secured. Three gates have
been opened at water control
structure S-197 in Florida Bay and
.crews are standing by to open
more gates, depending on rain-
fall.
Central and Northern Miami-
Dade County
Workers continue to clear tree
debris left from Hurricane Katrina
from District canal banks. All
water control structures and
pumping stations are secured,
and generator fuel levels are
topped off.
Broward County


Workers continue to clear tree
debris left from Hurricane Katrina
from District canal banks. All
water control structures and
pumping stations are secured,
and generator fuel levels are
topped off.
Palm Beach, Martin and St.
Lucie counties
All water control structures
and pumping stations are
secured, and generator fuel levels
are topped off. The stream gauges
are being removed and secured.
Teams have been identified and
equipment secured to help in
recovery efforts to the south.
Okeechobee, Osceola and
Orange counties
Water control structure inspec-
tions are all clear. Equipment
such as dump trucks, chainsaws
and front-end loaders have been
readied to roll out for recovery
efforts where needed.
Lee, Collier and Hendry Coun-
ties
Inspections show all canals
are clear. Equipment and staff are
available to assist with the rapid
response team.


Community Profile: Calipto Gonzalez


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

Q: What isyour name?
A: My full name is Calipto Gon-
zalez. Calipto is the patron saint of
Puerto Rico. My mom named me. I
had a lot of problems growing up. I
like it, it's different.
Q:Wherewereyou bom?
A: New York, Manhattan. My
wife and I didn't want to raise the
kids in New York so we packed it
up and came out here. We've been
out here for 20 years now. I started
my career in New York, I worked
for the hospital police department.
I came out here and went to work
for the sheriff's department.
Q:Whatdoyoudo?
A: Right now I'm a detective
with the Pahokee Police Depart-
ment. I do investigations, whatever
needs to be done. I don't have any-
thing scheduled; if it needs to be
done, I'll handle it. My normal day
is hectic. Everything from citizens
wanting to speak to me, com-
plaints, cases, I respond to calls if
the guys are busy.
Q:Why?
A: I love being a police officer. I
love helping people. When I was
being brought up, I was in gangs. I
had a chance, maybe, to ruin my
life. But this New York police officer


took an interest in me. Every time
he used to see me wearing my
gang colors, he used to jump out of
the patrol car and literally kick the
(deleted) out of me, I'm talking
about literally. He said he saw that I
had potential. After a couple of
beatings, I
found out. I
was in gangs
for a while
before that. I
had a rough
childhood. It
wasn't easy
being brought
up in Spanish.
Harlem. If you
weren't part of Calipto
the group, you Gonzalez
were going to
be part of the group being stepped
on. That's why I tell the kids here in
Pahokee that, no matter what, they
have a chance. If they want it, they
can do it. Anybody, if they really
want to do it, they can.
After getting a couple of beat-
ings, I went into the military. It
straightened me out. I got out, met
my wife and we've been together
since.
Q: Can you describeyourself?
A: I think I've always been a
straightforward, honest person. I
don't like lies, I don't like hypocrisy.


I'm not that type of person. If I have
something to tell you, I will tell you.
Ifyou don't like it, that's fine. I don't
think I'm shy. Not at all.
Q: What scares you?
A: Fear? Losing my family. Not
being able to be with my family. I
think that's the most important
thing in my life. I've been married
for 27 years. I have a 27-year-old
and a 23-year-old. I'm talking
about my entire family, me and my
brothers are very close. My mother
just passed away. My father, I had-
n't seen him for years, but he is
dead.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: The Temptations are my
favorite group. I just love their
music it has meaning. Everyday
on my way home, I put on that CD
and that's what relaxes me. By the
time I get home, I'm mellowed out.
Q:Whatirksyou?
A: I get upset when things are
not done that are supposed to be
done. When you expect someone,
a professional who knows his job
and he doesn't do it that irks me.
I know he knows what he has to
do and he chooses to ignore it or
doesn't want to do it that gets
me very upset. I don't care what
they tell me to do, "Clean this toilet
bowl." I'm going to make it spot-
less.


Q: What memory do you hold
dear?
.A: I guess the birth of my sons
that was the greatest moment in
my life. (Q: How old were you
when you had your first son?) My
first son, 19. (Q: Were you pre-
pared?) No, but I did okay. Ohe's in
the entertainment field, the other is
a mechanic for Palm Beach Audi.
My oldest son calls me all the time
on my Nextel. Not too long ago he
called me to say thanks and I said,
"What for?" He said, "For being the
way you were with me. For making
me clean my room, teaching me
how to cook and teaching me to be
responsible."
Q: Why do you put family first?
A: I guess because of the way
my father was. He was no good. I
remember the beatings he used to
give my mom when I was small. I'll
never forget that. I'll always
remember that.
I was a little kid. I remember, I
remember he threw me against
the wall once when I tried to stop
him from hitting my mom. I didn't
want to be like him, I guess that's
why. He had all these different mar-
riages and all kinds of things. I
guess I didn't want to turn out that
way and I always told myself I was
not going to be like that. I've kept
my word so far.


Glades General installs Lightspeed CT Imaging System


Belle Glade Glades Gener-
al Hospital acquired a break-
through computed tomography
(CT) scanner that provides
detailed images of the human
body. According to Bruce Sam-
ple, director of Radiology Ser-
vices, this advanced technology
not only means more diagnostic
information for doctors in rou-
tine situations, but its speed can
also save preciousexam time in
the emergency room.
The new LightSpeed CT scan-
ner from GE Medical Systems
allows doctors to simultaneous-
ly capture multiple images of a
patient's anatomy in a matter of
minutes.
"In many cases, emergency
room (ER) physicians rely on
images from CT scanners to
assess the extent of internal
injury during the first and most
critical hour for trauma patients
in the ER," said Eddie Oliver,
M.D., emergency room director.
"Reducing the scan time by a
few minutes or more can allow
ER physicians to begin treating
patients more quickly."
CT exams are used when
people are ill or injured, or
when a doctor suspects a med-
ical problem that is not easily
detectable from a normal physi-
cal examination. The Light-
Speed CT scanner assists physi-
cians in the diagnosis of a
variety of anatomic areas,
including spine, head, abdomen
and chest.
"With LightSpeed, a CT exam
that used to take us three min-
utes can now be completed in
approximately 20 seconds," said
Sample. "This allows us the
speed and accuracy we need to
quickly diagnose a variety of

Glades royalty helps

youngest victims


BELLE GLADE The 2005
Harvest Queen, Amy Hooker
joined efforts with Wachovia
Bank, in Belle Glade branch to
collect items for Hurricane Kat-
rina survivors. Amy said that
she focused on babies who had
gone through this terrible
ordeal mainly because of her
13-month-old cousin Elizabeth
Smith.
Amy said that her cousin
Elizabeth had .to survive last
year's South Florida hurricanes
when she was only a few
weeks old and realizes how


much is needed to help main-'
tain babies during such difficult
times.
Amy and the employees of
Wachovia Bank collected dia-
pers, formula, food, wet ones,
water, medicine baby bottles,
toddler cups, and teething
items. Amy would like to thank
her aunt, Wanda Smith and
Nudi Ruiz of Wachovia Bank for
all the help given to her. Amy, a
senior at Glades Day School, is
the daughter of Jeff Hooker of
Belle Glade and Rilean Hooker
of Moore Haven.


BELLE GLADE- When Miracle,
Temple Ministries, located on 715 in
Belle Glade, launches its "40 Days of
Purpose Campaign" Sept. 25, it will
join a worldwide network of thou-
sands of churches.
Inspired by remarkable stories of
spiritual renewal and growth, an
estimated 13,000 churches from 60
denominations have experienced
the purpose-driven phenomena
inspired by a California pastor's
best-selling book.
Pastor Nichols said, "This will be
the most significant period of Per-
sonal spiritual growth in the history
of the church. The 40 days will
involve weekend services, small
group video studies, daily inspira-
tional readings, and Scripture mem-
ory verses. Ifyou'would like to join a
group it's not too late. Everyone is
invited to attend the services.'.The
focus will include Spiritual growth,
and church health. We are believing
God to create bonds of friendship in
the groups and beyond the 40 Days
of Purpose Campaign."
During the 40 Days of Purpose
Campaign at Miracle Temple, the
truths about God's five purposes for
people worship, fellowship, dis-
cipleship, ministry, and evangelism


- will be communicated repeated-
ly in the following ways: An all-
church Simulcast seminar; weekly
message by the pastor; a personal
or family daily devotional reading; a
weekly Scripture memory verse that
everyone memorizes; a weekly
small group or Sunday school les-
son.
"People will hear about God's,
purposes for their lives in many dif-
ferent formats," Pastor Nichols said.
"This will allow for the truths to sink
deeper into hearts, which is essen-
tial for any permanent life change.
Knowing your purpose gives your
life meaning, simplicity, and motiva-
tion. It also prepares you for eternity.
In Revelation 4:11 the Bible tells us
that God created everything and it's
for His pleasure that they exist and
were created."
Pastor Nichols and the congre-
gation at Miracle Temple along with
churches around the world would
like to invite you to come and join
them in discovering the answer to
that age old question, "What on
Earth Am I Hear For?"
If you would like more informa-

Gove students
to the rescue
Under the direction of Mrs.


Aguirre and Ms. Riker, Guidance
Counselors, and Mr. Emilcar,
French teacher, students at Gove
Elementary were taught the
meaning of "helpfulness" by par-
ticipating in a very special fund-
raising activity. Students were
asked to donate pocket change
on behalf of students in Alabama,
Louisiana, and Mississippi as a
way of reaching out to those in
need. As a result, $1,279.70 was
collected to assist those affected
by Hurricane Katrina. Once again,
we commend the students, teach-
ers and staff who assisted with
this initiative.

A congratulatory
letter
We are happy to announce
that Gove Elementary School has
received a congratulatory letter
from Governor Jeb Bush for our
commitment to academic
achievement as measured by the
FCAT: In his letter, he states,
"Gove Elementary School serves
as a model for providing the high
caliber of education all Florida
students deserve." He extends his
warmest congratulations to the
entire Gove family (students, staff,
SAC members, parents, and
administration) for the hard work
and dedication to the success of
Florida's students.

Coach's Reading
Challenge
The Coach's Reading Chal-


lenge is underway and we have
many whales who are busy read-
ing at home.
The winners of this week's
drawing are Jennifer Paniagua,
Tory Boldin, Norriel Steele, and
Judith Zamarrippa. The students
won T-shirts, books, and pencils.
KEEP READING WHALES!

Academic Focus
This week Huver Chavez and
Freddie Halliburton completed an
experiment on the morning
announcements. The question:
Which is heavier, the air around
us or carbon dioxide? Using two
paper bags tied to the two ends of
a dowel rod, they poured 15 ml.
of baking soda and 25 ml. of vine-
gar into one of the bags (this
made carbon dioxide) the bag
with the carbon dioxide rose indi-
cating that carbon dioxide weighs
less than the air around us.

Volunteers Needed
We are in need of volunteers
who would like to help us make a
difference. Please call Mrs.
Angram at 924-6460 for more
information.

Dates to note:
Sept. 22- 1/2 Day for students

a year makes.


When you add up the cost for a whole

connection makes good financial sense.
Especially when you can get Sprint .
high-speed Internet at the low fixed
price of $24.99 a month' for
12 months when you combine it
with other qualifying Sprint services.
(One-year term agreement applies). After 12
months pay $29.99 a month.

house a facility, though the project
contains construction projects
undergoing throughout the tri-
cities area.
Staff with the county's water
utilities department, overseeing
the project, and County Adminis-
trator Bob Weisman, were on-
hand for the groundbreaking
event.
The county said the, "facility
will produce the highest quality
drinking water available," by treat-
ing water drawn from the Floridan
Aquifer through a new low-pres-
sure reverse osmosis facility, elimi-
nating the water quality problems
and the issues of the high levels of
THM in the water. Residents will
no longer be drinking water from
the lake, a practice in the Glades
going back some time.
Four bids were received for the
construction.of the water plant,
with Poole and Kent Company of
Florida submitting the lowest bid
at a few thousand dollars short of
$20 million. Coupled with engi-
neering and planning costs, as
well as other expenses, the plant
cost is $44 million. Estimates a few
months ago by the county had
been several million dollars high-
er.
A number of agencies have
stepped up to help eliminate as
'much of the debt frpm falling
squarely on the shoulders of tax-
payers in the tri-cities area. Provid-
ing grant funding assistance is
Palm Beach County, along with
the South Florida Water Manage-


ment District, the Environmental
Protection Agency, the State of
Florida and VA/HUD, for a total of
$21 million.
The Glades cities continue
seeking funding to cover the
remaining cost of the plant. Under
the inter-local agreement, the city
of Belle Glade is responsible for 70
percent of the remaining debt -
South Bay and Pahokee divide the
remainder. With millions at stake,
the cities now ask for assistance
from the government, specifically
the capitol. Local leaders at the
groundbreaking said Washing-
ton's aid.is greatly needed.
"I have a congressman and a
senator, where are they today?"
asked Commissioner Masilotti.
The county remains committed to
the project, its number one legisla-
tive priority.
Local leaders, meanwhile, are
satisfied to see work commenc-
ing. "This is historic for us," said
Belle Glade Mayor Steve Wilson.
"We need clean water."
According to officials, the
water plant will be undergoing
construction at the site and the
project should be finished within
two years.
"Today is a remarkable day for
us," said South Bay Mayor
Clarence Anthony. "Without qual-
ity water, we won't have quality
life. We look forward to turning
the faucet onand having water as
clean as any other city in our
nation."

vendors at least to the table," said
Mr. Jackson. "South Florida Water
Management District is commit-
ted, we are doing everything we
can."
The Glades region is the focus
of the outreach, as many of the
projects now underway or soon
to come can be easily accessed by.
local businesses and workers.
Already, there has been some
success, though representatives
say they would like the successes


to continue to be replicated in the
future. While some companies
and people are becoming more
interested in the idea, Mr. Jackson
agrees that many simply are not
taking advantage of the opportu-
nities being offered.
The district breaks up projects,
making them small enough so
that local contractors and vendors
can participate, rather than to see
them outpaced by larger compa-
nies outside the Glades. The strat-
egy, so far, has worked.
Rio-Bak Corporation, a gener-
al contractor with an office in
Belle Glade, is one of those


accepting that help. According to
Mr. Jackson, Rio-Bak, which.
employs almost all of its workers
from the Glades, has won three
contracts for work. One of those
is a $182,000 contract awarded in
August for demolition and site
work for the Acceler8 Everglades
Agricultural Area project' located
along U.S. 27 .
Mr. Jackson pointed to another
project, a $1.2 million demolition
project in Naples, that he hoped
local contractors \\ ill attempt to
participate in.
In the meantime, local cities
have pledged to work in getting


the message to their communities
and' getting more people
involved. In Pahokee, city leaders
thanked the partnership for its
work.
"The Acceler8 program
addressed many of the concerns
we had," said Pahokee Mayor J.P.
Sasser. "We need to get our peo-
ple out there and ready for those
jobs "

Gators clip the Pats in last second


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE "That goes
down as any big time play, from
big time players, in a big time
game," said Gator head coach
Craig Dobson to his young backup
quarterback Brandon Smith after
Smith's thrilling game-winning
touchdown pass with two seconds
left to play against the Florida Chris-
tian Patriots.
Smith took over the reigns of
the Gator offense two weeks ago
when starting junior quarterback
Josh McGregor went down in the
Gator loss to Benjamin in the sea-
son opener, when their second
scheduled game become their first
after Hurricane Katrina put a spoil-
er on their planned trip to Eustis.
Smith, a flanker and defensive
back for the Gators, had taken
"very few" snaps for the Gators
before McGregor went down and
the Gators have been relying heavi-
ly on their run attack until McGre-
gor's return, which could very well
be their first district game against
Evangelical Sept. 30.
Smith had his fair share of
trouble against the Pats who
picked him off three times and
sacked him three times, but he
also threw for over 100 yards and
for two touchdowns, including
the game winner. But the Gators
certainly had to earn the victory
and despite giving up two early
scores, it was the Gator defense
who rose to the occasion to domi-
nate this ball game.
The Gators kept the Patriots to
68 yards of rushing and after a
pair of sacks, held the Pats to just
22 yards of passing yardage for a
total of 107 yards of offense given
up. It was miscues and four
turnovers that gave the Pats every
opportunity to win the ball game,
but the Gator defense was excep-
tional and they would eventually
be awarded with Smith's miracle
drive to victory.
Special teams miscues started
from the opening kick off when the
Pats returned the ball all the way to
the Gator 38-yard line. Two early
successful pass attempts account-
ed for 30 yards for Patriot quarter--
back Sean Sanchez, but the Gator
defense stiffened deep in the red
zone to force the early field goal
attempt. Danny Escobar made
good on the 27-yard attempt to give
the Pats an early 3-0 lead with 9:07
left in the first quarter.
The Gators responded with
eight straight rushing plays that
went for three first downs, but the
Gators also put the ball on the
ground twice during the drive.
Smith's first pass attempt of the
game was tipped into the waiting
hands of a defender for the first of
three picks, but the Gator defense
stopped the Pats cold.
It would be a pair of penalties
that would halt Glades Day's next
drive and a pass interference penal-
ty on the Pats' ensuing drive would
lead to Sanchez hitting Brian Quin-
tana from 19 yards out for the
touchdown. Escobar easily hit the
point after for a Patriot 10-0 lead
* with 3:46 left in the first half.
Glades Day fumbled the kick
off return right back to a tired
defense who received a little help

After a slow start, the Terriers'
offense finally got going in the
second half en route to a 33-18
victory.
Jerrell Smith lifted the Terriers
to a 14-10 lead after runs of 33
and 44 yards for touchdowns in
the third quarter.
Rod Huggins added a 65-yard
touchdown run in the fourth
quarter and Barrett Ringstaff


scored from 29 yards out to close
out the scoring.
"This was a big win for us
tonight," said Moore Haven
coach Andy Ringstaff, whose
team improved to 1-2. "We
needed this to keep our heads in
the season, and the kids
responded in the second half."
The Moore Haven rushing
attack finished strong with Smith
finishing with 100 yards on 10 car-
ries, and Nate Kelly adding 126
yards on 13 carries for the Terriers.
Moore Haven is on the road
again next week at North Palm
Beach Benjamin.


Raiders mark secondwin


INI/MarK Young
The Gator football cheerleading squad had plenty to get excited about in Glades Day's
thrilling last second win over Florida Christian. This talented young squad are, from left front,
Amy Hooker, Kristin Duff, and Kristah Rodriguez. From left middle, Courtney Allen, Maria
Mastrioni, Rachel McGee, Jannine Manmachadl, Duri Crosby, Lauren Royal, and Sabrina
Baron. From left back, Nadia Graveman, Kristen LaMourers, Ashton Martie, Gator, Pamela
Palmer, Kristi Kirchman, and Melanie Coker.


"There was a lot of pressure. But someone had
to step up to the plate on offense and it had to be
me. My receivers had a big game for me. They
were getting open and catching the ball when I
got it to them. I just got lucky."
Brandon Smith,
quarterback


when Sanchez hit a wide open
Quintana who let the ball slip
through his hands. A 15-yard sack
followed that play and the Pats
would not be able to capitalize
on the special teams miscue. But
neither would they take advan-
tage of the momentum when a
promising late half drive ended
on another interception.
Further drive stopping penalties
and special teams mistakes haunt-
ed the Gators, but the defense did
not stumble, answering each and
every challenge that was put in
front of them. On their third offen-
sive possession of the second half,
the Gators began on their own 24-
yard line and after aa-six-yard-sack
and a penalty, Smith suddenly
exploded with a nine-yard pass to
Travis Hendry. On the next play,
Smith looked downfield to Andrew
Joseph who hauled in the perfect
strike and scampered the rest of
the 69-yard distance on his own for
a Gator score.
But a bad snap on the point
after attempt saw the attempt fail
and the Pats held a 10-6 lead with
7:27 remaining in the game.
Smith returned the favor to the
Patriots who had picked him two
times up to this point, with an
interception of his own to stop
the answering drive from the Pats.
But he would throw his third to


end another promising Gator
drive as Glades Day was left with-
out the ball with 1:22 left, but with
all three timeouts.
Coach Dobson only had to use
two of them after two short runs.
The Patriots looked to end the
game with one play and opted to
go to the air, which fell incom-
plete. The Gators put everyone on
the line to try to block the punt,
but it managed to sail to the
Glades Day 47-yard line with :52
left in the game.
Smith went on a rampage, hit-
ting Hendry for 11 quick yards and
the presence of mind to fight his
way out of bounds, and Karl
Charles for 17 more yards. The next
two pass attempts fell harmlessly
to the ground and on third and 10,
from the 30-yard line, with just sec-
onds remaining, Smith rolled out
to his left. The Patriot defensive end
was hot on his heels, but Smith
gave him just enough of a shirk to
break free and while in a full sprint,
fired a missile to Joseph who
somehow managed to get open in
the corner of the end zone.
The ball hit Joseph squarely on
his number and Joseph safely
tucked it away for the Gator touch-
down with two seconds left to play
in the game.
The point after failed, but the
Gators tqok a 12-0 lead and


claimed their second victory in a
row after beating the Clewiston
Tigers 19-14 the previous week.
The Gators will get a much-needed
open date next week before getting
back to work against district rival
Evangelical Sept. 30, on the road.
"Defense did it for us tonight,"
said coach Dobson. "We have a lot
of concerns on the offensive line
and on special teams right now. I
challenged my defense at halftime
to keep them off the scoreboard
and they did. Smith is a playmaker
and he made the big plays when
we needed them. But I'm going to
be even happier when he gets back
to his flanker and DB position full
time, because he can even make
bigger things happen from there."
Smith had a lot put on his shoul-
ders over the past two weeks, but
he managed to get the job done
and his Gators are 2-0 under his
quarterback tour of duty.
"There was a lot of pressure,"
said Smith. "But someone had to
step up to the plate on offense
and it had to be me. My receivers
had a big game for me. They
were getting open and catching
the ball when I got it to them. I
just got lucky."
After losing 25 yards in sack
yardage, the humble Smith ended
the game with 107 yards of passing
on seven completions in 16
attempts. He was picked three
times, but he threw two touch-
down passes.
The Gators added 205 yards of.
rushing with Frank Lugo getting
much of the work. Lugo carried the
ball 16 times for 65 yards while
Lloyd Monda carried the ball a
dozen times for 59 yards. Ricky
Reitz had 23 yards on six carries.


BELLE GLADE The Raiders
today prepare for their third game
tomorrow night, against local rival
Clewiston, while still celebrating
their second win last Friday against
Suncoast.
In their second game last week,
Glades Central managed another
stunning victory, keeping Suncoast
at bay throughout the game.
The Raiders brought home the
shutout victory, extending their sea-
son record to 2-0.
The pace was set early by the
Raiders, who scored in the first
quarter. Quarterback Bryan Mann
connected with Tarus McKinley
with a three-yard pass for a touch-
down.


The Suncoast defensive line was
unable to stop the Raiders, who
came back in the second quarter to
score again, with Mann and McKin-
ley teaming up once more for a 54-
yard touchdown pass.
The Raiders led 13-0 going into
the second half, and capped the
game with a fourth quarter score,
this time with McKinley breaking
past the defense to score from two
yards out.
Mann threw 4-for-I17, for a total
119 yards, with two touchdowns.
The Raiders look forward to
tomorrow's game against Clewis-
ton High. The Raiders will be play-
ing at home.

Pahokee's defense dominates in victory ima:m, ,io.is


By Nina G. Wills
Pahokee picked up a huge win
on the road against Florida Air
Academy in Melbourne Sept. 16.
Pahokee's defense again showed
its dominating style. On Florida Air
Academy's fist possession of the
ball game, the Falcons were forced
to punt. The punt was blocked by
the Devils' defense. Forty-five yards.
and six plays later, Tamarcus Porter
was on the receiving end of a 14-
yard touchdown pass thrown by
quarterback Robert Love.
The rest of the half was a battle
of the defenses, but Pahokee's sen-
ior linebacker Rudy Robinson
made a huge play with less than
three minutes remaining in the
half. Falcon quarterback Sherman
Lang attempted to throw a screen
pass, but Robinson grabbed the
ball and ran 16 yards for another


Devil touchdown. The two-point
conversion was a throw from Love
to Porter and the Pahokee Blue
Devils were up 14-0 to end the first
half of play.
To start the third quarter, Paho-
kee's offense put together a 77-yard
drive, capping it off with senior tail-
back Ricky Gary who rushed in for
a nine-yard touchdown. The extra
point kick was good by Jose
Rodriguez. The next and final Dev-
ils' touchdown came with 6:22 left
in the game. Robert Love's one-
yard quarterback sneak put the
Devils on top of the Falcons 28-0.
Pahokee's defense held the Fal-
cons to only 109 total yards of
offense and six first downs. Paho-
kee's running game finally
emerged with 256 rushing yards
(365 total yards of offense) and 19
first downs. Pahokee is riding high
after two dominating victories.
They are 2-1 on the season and will


face Atlantic at home Sept. 23 at

Lady Pats overcome Glades Day in four

INI/Mark Young
Junior outside hitter Candace Pavey had a strong game for
the Lady Gators who took on their rivals from Florida Christ-
ian Sept. 26.



:H.


Sophomore setter Erin McKinstry looks up for the pass com-
ing her way, which she would dish out to a hungry Lady Gator
hitter early on against the! Lady Patriots from Florida Christian.


BELLE GLADE Taking the
court of the 10th time this season,
the Lady Gators were looking to
overcome their heated rivals from
Florida Christian on their home
court, but the Lady Patriot net play
proved to be too much of an obsta-
cle to overcome.
The Lady Gators have some his-
tory with the Lady Pats after defeat-
ing them twice before in regional
playoffs and the intensity on the
court burned hot throughout the
contest, with Glades Day managing
to take a thrilling first game victory
by score of 27-25.
The Lady Gators opened up a
quick 6-2 lead behind some stellar
play from junior Alleigh Schlechter
and sophomore Danielle Sly.
Schlechter was a dominating force
throughout the match and fended
off several tough kill attempts from
the powerful Lady Pat outside hit-
ter while Sly chimed in early with a
kill to help the Lady Gators to the
early lead.
* Junior Kalyn Rayburn made her
presence known and with the help
of an unstoppable Schlechter, the
Lady Gators and crew jumped out
to a 14-9 lead, but the Lady Pats ral-
lied with a seven-point run to claim
a one-point advantage in the game.
Behind their strong net play, the
Lady Pats would claim a 20-16 lead,
but behind the serving of
Schlechter who tallied an ace dur-
ing one, three-point run and a
momentum turning kill from soph-
omore Natalie Harville, the Lady
Gators caught and passed Florida
Christian to take the first game.
The momentum clearly swung
in the Lady Pats' direction in game
two as Florida Christian ticked off a
25-12 victory despite the strong
play of Sly and Harville up front.
The two net squads dueled in a
back and forth struggle to open the
third game of the match with.the
Lady Gators holding a slim 9-8
advantage before the Lady Pats
broke the game open with a five-
point run. Glades Day managed to
break serve, but only briefly as
Florida Christian launched a con-
secutive five-point run to open up
an 18-10 lead.'
Junior Candace Ravey came on
strong for the Lady Gators who
pulled themselves back into con-
tention and a late game service
point run from Rayburn saw
Glades Day tighten the score to 24-
22. But they fell short of the come-
back bid to reclaim the match
advantage as the Lady Pats closed
out the game with a service break
to take a 25-22 win, and a 2-1
advantage in the match.
Game four was a must win for
the Lady Gators and they played

like it with Harville and Sly account-
ing for much of the early action at
the net. But the Lady Pats were
looking to put this one away while
they had the opportunity and came
back to take .a 13-10 lead before
launching back to back four-point
runs on their next two services to
open up a 23-11 lead.
A strong Schlechter kill and an
ace from Harville gave the Lady
Gators some life, but it would be
the Lady Pats who would go on to
win the game 25-13 and the match
three games to one.
"This was the best defense we
have played since the opening
game," said head coach Kathy
McReynolds of her young squad.
"We are very young this year and
starting to pick up momentum. We
have two more tournaments to play
in and that will be a good opportu-
nity to keep building around some
of the positive things I saw tonight."
The Lady Gators drop to 4-6 on
the season, but have plenty of time
to rally through this season and cer-
tainly showed some impressive
abilities against the 9-2 Lady Pats
from Florida Christian.
Leading the charge for the Lady
Gators was Schlechter who racked
up an impressive 20 kills for the
match and added five digs with a
strong appearance in the back
court as well. Schlechter also led
the team with four aces.
Harville was strong at the net as
well and led the team with four
blocks. Sophomore Andrea Brow-
der dished out 21 assists to her hun-
gry hitter.
The Lady Gators will look to St.
Edwards to rebound back into the
victory column as well as the dis-
trict victory column as Glades Day
sits at 0-1 within the district after a
loss to King's Academy earlier in
the year.

Glades Day School Junior High volleyball team


At Home Atmosphere


Glades Day School
OKEECHOBEE The Glades
Day School Junior High volley-
ball team traveled to Okee-
chobee on Saturday, Sept. 10 to
play in a middle school tourna-
ment. The young Lady Gators
arrived at Osceola Middle school
at 8:30 in the morning and
played their first game at 10 a.m.


After a win against Heartland
Middle, they lost their next two
matches of the day against Oslo
and Yearling Middle a team,
which put them in the Silver
Division:
But they never lost their fire
and fought back to win the next
match against LaBelle Middle in
two games. The day ended with
a very exciting match against


Yearling. Middle (B team). The
Lady Gators won the first game,
25-23, but dropped the second
game, 19-25. In the third game
the Yearling team went ahead
with a commanding lead of
eight points, but the Fightin'
Gators were not willing to go
down. With great teamwork and
effort, they fought their way
back to win the match 15-11 and


earned the Silver Divison first
place trophy. The young players,
their coaches, and of course, the
parents watching from the
stands were thrilled with their
accomplishment. Elise Gaviria
and Alexia Eigner led the team
with service points, Kaylin
Rohde led with kills, and Brian-
na Lohmann was the leader in
assists for the day.

USDA modifies sugar program to address market or marketing


CLEWISTON In response to
the sugar market turmoil created
by Hurricane Katrina, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture has fur-
ther modified the FY 2005 sugar
program, said Joy Llossas, FSA
Hendry/Collier/Glades County
Executive Director.
USDA is increasing the FY 2005
Overall Allotment Quantity (OAQ),
which is the quantity of domestic
sugar that may enter the market
and announced early entry of the
FY 2006 refined sugar tariff-rate
quota, beginning Sept. 8. The early
entry of the FY 2006 refined sugar
tariff-rate quota does not include
specialty sugar, for which the previ-
ously announced dates of opening
remain unchanged. This
announcement follows the Aug. 19
sugar program actions intended to
increase domestic supply.
The catastrophic hurricane was
the latest in a series of events that
has severely tightened the sugar
market and threatened the domes-
tic production of sugar containing
foods. The sugar market has pro-
gressively tightened across FY 2005
due to unexpected strong demand,
reduced cane sugar production
caused by previous hurricanes and


expected weather-reduced Sep-
tember 2005 beet sugar production
in the upper Midwest.
The actions taken are intended
to boost refined sugar quantities
immediately available to amelio-
rate already-tight domestic market
conditions, exacerbated by the
forced closure of two major sugar
* refineries caused by the hurricane.
The refineries in the New Orleans
area, produce about 5,500 tons of
sugar daily. USDA is committed to
provide an adequate supply of
sugar to meet domestic needs,
within the bounds of the current
sugar program.
OAQ INCREASE:
An increase in the OAQ of
225,000 short tons, raw value
(STRV) is expected fo result in
immediate availability of some
beet sugar "blocked stocks". Fifty-
four percent of the OAQ increase is
assigned to the beet sector as
required by statute.
It is also.recognized that not all
entities receiving allocations will be
able to supply sugar this month
because of the location of current
inventories and the transportation
logistics of moving refined sugar. As
a result, USDA surveyed all entities


that have been assigned a market-
ing allotment to determine the
amount of refined sugar that actual-
ly can be made available to the
market in the remainder of FY 2005.
Accounting for this "slippage," the
122,288 STRV allocation is estimat-
ed to result in some 71,000 STRV
actually entering the market.
The beet sugar allotment is
assigned to sugar beet processors
according to the attached table. As
in the Aug. 19 announcement, the
Commodity Credit Corporation
(CCC) reassigned allotment from
companies that were not expect-
ed to fulfill their allocation to com-
panies that have a greater capacity
to do so.
No cane sugar blocked stocks
exist, and that sector's portion (46
percent) of the allocation must be
reassigned to the CCC. Since CCC
also has no sugar, the allotment is
reassigned to imports, notably to
the refined sugar TRQ allocation
and to over-quota (tier II) sugar
entering from Mexico.
The Aug. 12, 2005, World Agri-
cultural Estimates of Supply and
Demand report, estimated FY 2005
Mexican tier II imports at 110,000
STRV Assigning this shortfall to raw


sugar exporters would not help
alleviate the' acute shortage in
refined sugar.
Refineries already are operating
at near capacity and few supplying.
countries are able to land raw
sugar before Sept. 30, the end of
the marketing year, even if refinery
capacity were available.
REFINED SUGAR EARLY ENTRY
Allowing early entry for the
refined sugar FY 2006 minimum
TRQ is expected to result in an addi-
tional 22,000 STRV available at once,
to the market. Most is already in the
United States in bonded warehouse
facilities or nearby in Canada.
The release of the blocked beet
stocks plus early entry of refined
sugar thus could result in more
than 93,000 tons more sugar in the
market in September. This amount
is adjudged to be well in excess of
the reduced supply resulting from
the production disruption caused
by Hurricane Katrina.
The Department announced on
Aug. 12 details of the sugar pro-
gram for FY 2006 beginning Octo-
ber 1. Sugar and sweetener market
conditions are closely monitored
continuously, and adjustments
made when warranted.

Celebrate farm safety with safely stored pesticides


In the wake of Hurricane Kat-
rina, we will certainly hear of
many unfortunate events involv-
ing pesticides in homes and on
the farms that have been
released into the environment as
a result of storm damage. We
can learn from these experi-
ences by reviewing how we han-
dle this important.tool for.hqjme
and garden.
A presidential proclamation
has been signed, naming the
week of Sept.18-24 as National
Farm Safety and Health Week.
While it is not up there with
Christmas, Easter or even Hal-
loween as one of the most excit-
ing celebrations on the calendar,
ranchers and homeowners alike
can use this week to review how
they store their pesticides.
According to the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, there are several
practices that commercial pesti-
cide users must follow. Let's see
how they apply to homeowners
who are storing pesticides:
The best way to minimize
storage problems is to minimize
the amount you store. Limit
inventory, and purchase only the
amounts needed. If you don't
need a gallon jug of spray in the
next month don't buy it and if
you need that much pesticide,
Why not ask a professional to do
the job for you.
Design and build pesticide
storage structures to keep pesti-
cides secure and isolated from
the surrounding environment.
Store pesticides in a concrete or
metal structure with a roof and
lockable door. A rusted tin shed
won't provide much protection
from the weather, and will not
be very secure from curious kids
or pets. Here's a good compari-
son: Would you put your loaded


gun out there next to the weed,
killer?
. Keep pesticides in a sepa-
rate facility or at least in a locked
area separate from areas used to
store other materials, especially
fertilizers, feed, and seed. If a
spill or leak occurs, will the pes-
ticide get into other stuff? If it
.does, your cleanup problem is
bigger that just that one bag of
bug dust.
Do not store pesticides near
flammable materials, hot work
(welding, grinding), or in shop
areas. Not only the container,
but some of the chemicals used
as pesticides will burn and
you don't want anyone breath-
ing that mess!
Do not allow smoking in
pesticide storage areas. Smoking
pesticide applicators can also
get exposure to pesticides when
they smoke or use chewing
tobacco products. You ought to
wash your hands after using pes-
ticides and before you eat or
smoke.
Store personal protective


equipment (PPE) where it is eas-
ily accessible in an emergency,
but not in the pesticide storage
area. Be sure you wear the right
clothes when using pesticides to
limit the chances of pesticide
poisoning check the label for
what to wear.
Do not put pesticides in
containers that children and oth-
ers might mistake dor food or
drink. An empty milk jug with
mixed pesticide spray looks a lot
like milk and may invite some
unsuspecting child to take a
drink.
Dry bags should be raised
on pallets to ensure that they do
not get wet. Your homeowner
pesticide cabinet is probably not
as big as a palate the idea
here is to keep the containers of
weed and feed off the floor. If
there is a leak from a broken
pipe or a flood from a rainstorm,
will it move into your garage and
get the pesticide bag wet?
Do not store liquid materi-
als above dry materials. If they
leak, gravity will cause the liq-


uids to drip onto the solid mate-
rials, making for a bigger mess
and waster products.
Keep containers closed
tightly. Tight containers or bags
that are clipped closed can pre-
vent spills in case the container
trips over.
Inspect inventory frequent-
ly and watch for damaged,con-
tainers. It's suggested, at the
minimum, to look through your
stock at least once each year -
so why not do it this week? ,
.* Store flammable pesticides
separately from nonflammable
pesticides. Keep gas and pesti-
cides separate.
Segregate herbicides,
insecticides, and fungicides to
prevent cross-contamination
and minimize the potential for
misapplication. I've heard too
many cases where homeowners
use an insecticide to kill a weed,
and even the other way around.
It is not only illegal and danger-
ous, but can kill the wrong thing
and is an expensive waste of
money.

FWC holds freshwater fish summit


SEBRING A major effort to
reorganize the way Florida man-
ages its freshwater fisheries is the
topic of a unique summit being
hosted in Sebring by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC). The Sebring
meeting will take place on Satur-
day evening, Sept. 24, at 6:30
p.m., at the Sebring Civic Center,
355 W Center Ave.
Through this summit, the
FWC is inviting stakeholders to
organize and team with the
agency to help design and imple-
ment management plans that will
have a major effect on Florida's
freshwater fisheries. Anyone
interested in the future of fresh-
water resources in Florida is
encouraged to attend this impor-


tant interaction with FWC fishery
professionals.
"An online ,survey recently
conducted by the Division of
Freshwater Fisheries Manage-
ment was the first step in estab-
lishing communications with
anglers and other resource users,
enabling us to document con-
cerns and determine attitudes
about our future direction," said
Dennis Renfro, FWC summit
coordinator.
The response to the survey
was overwhelming with over
1,500 constituents participating.
Results from this survey were
used to shape the format and
content of six summits soon to be
held in various locations around
the state where survey responses


were greatest.
"In the past, stakeholders gave
input and FWC staff implement-
ed a plan. In the new process
stakeholders will partner with the
agency to develop and imple-
ment plans jointly," said Dave
McElveen, FWC Planning Coordi-
nator.
Sebring hosts the first of six
zone meetings throughout the
state that start in September 2005
and continuing through January

Sugar cane cutters' lawsuit goes forward


ORLANDO A group of
more than 1,000 former sugar
cane cutters took their 16-year-
old battle against one of the
nation's largest sugar producers
to federal court two weeks ago,
suing' Osceola Farms Co. to,
recover more than $5 million in
back wages.
The class-action lawsuit filed
in U.S. District Court in West
Palm Beach came more than two
months after a judge ruled that
the workers couldn't continue as
a class in their lawsuit first filed in
1989 in state court. That required
them to file separate claims.
Joseph Klock, an attorney for
Osceola Farms, was in Cleveland
and didn't return phone calls.
Armando Tabernilla, a registered
agent for Osceola Farms, didn't
return a phone call to his home.
No one answered the phone at
an Osceola Farms warehouse in
Riviera Beach, the only listing for


the company.
Osceola Farms is a subsidiary
of Flo-Sun Inc., which is one of
the nation's largest sugar produc-
ers and controlled by the political-
ly influential Fanjul family. Attor-
neys for the cane cutters, mostly
laborers from the Caribbean who
came to the United States as tem-
porary agriculture workers,
brought their case to federal court
under the recently passed Class
Action Fairness Act.
The law was designed to send
the majority of class-action law-
suits to federal courts, which are
believed less likely than state
courts to award multi-million
dollar verdicts to people suing
large companies.
"This is a great irony," said
Greg Schell, a lawyer with the
Migrant Farm worker Justice Pro-
ject, who is one of three attor-
neys representing the cane cut-
ters. "This pro-business statute is


going to be used by a bunch of
starving cane .cutters from the
West Indies."
The cane cutters claim that
between 1987 and 1992, Osceola
Farms underpaid what was
promised in the workers' con-
tracts and then falsified the num-
ber of hours worked by the cane
cutters in documents filed with
the U.S. Department of Labor.
The documents were required as
part of the H2-A program which
allows foreign laborers to come
temporarily to the United States if
domestic workers can't be found
to do a particular job.
The workers were paid on a
"piece-rate" basis, or by the
amount they harvested. But fed-
eral law guarantees that agricul-
ture employees earn a fixed rate
per hour regardless of how much
cane is cut and that employers
must make up any shortfall
between .that rate and the work-


er's piece-rate earnings.
"That costs money to make
up the difference," Schell said.
"So they would make up the
records and underreport the
hours."
The workers are seeking
more than $5 million in back
wages but Schell said the
amount owed to them could be
more than $10 million when
interest is considered. If the case
is allowed to proceed as a class
action, it could encompass more
than 2,000 former cane cutters,
he said. Before 1994, when
mechanization was popularized,
sugar cane in Florida was hand
cut by workers with machetes.
The lawsuit against Osceola
Farms is the last of five cases
against sugar companies seeking
back wages for workers. One
case was settled and workers in
the three other cases lost in
court.


Tips to avoid

fraudulent charities


NUE After the devasta-
tion of Hurricane Katrina,
many are wondering how
they can help. At the same
time, criminals are using this
outpouring of support to take
advantage of well-meaning
citizens through deception
and fraud.
People who wish to con-
tribute to the relief effort are
urged to beware of charity
scams, which are especially
prevalent online. Consumer
advocates offer the following
advice:
Make sure the organiza-
tion is legitimate. Some illicit
organizations will try to con-
fuse you by using a name that
is similar to. a well-known
charity. Do your research to
find a reputable charity. For a
list of charity reports, visit the
BBB Wise Giving Alliance
Web site, www.give.org.
Never respond to or click
on a link within an e-mail ask-
ing for money and claiming to
be from a charity. If you wish
to make a donation onfine,
stick with familiar, established
charities and donate through
their Web sites directly.
Be skeptical of telephone
solicitations. Never give out
your personal or credit card,
information. Ask for a chari-
ty's exact name and address.
After researching the
organization, call back using
its published number if you
would like to get more infor-
mation by phone.
Give a check or money
order made out to the organi-
zation, not an individual.

Celebrate 85 years of women's vote


By MaiyAnn Morris
It took a long time to be lis-
tened to, but women were heard
and finally, on Aug. 26, 1920, a
legislator from Tennessee, Harry
Burn, cast the final vote needed
to pass the 19th Amendment to
the Constitution granting every
woman in the United States the
right to vote.
Women fought long and hard
for the right to vote. As early as
1776, Abigail Adams' letter
urged her husband John (who
was in Philadelphia helping to.
draft the United States Constitu-
tion) to "remember the ladies"
when drafting that document.
Florida didn't ratify the Nine-
teenth Amendment to the Con-
stitution until 1969, but that
doesn't mean that Lake Okee-
chobee area women have ever
been complacent. Marian
Horowitz O'Brien founded the
first bank in Clewiston and hired
"the foremost town planner in
the nation" to lay out the town of
Clewiston. Ms. 0 Brien took
office as mayor of Moore Haven
"years before the 19th amend-
ment granted the privilege of the
ballot to women" according to
the Clewiston News' Twenty-
Five Years df Progress Issue, of
Feb. 12, 1953.


The first woman to settle in
Moore Haven was a Mrs. Kelly,
back in 1915 when the only way
to Moore Haven (then an assort-
ment of tents and shacks) was
across the big lake.
"We have 9,278 women reg-
istered to vote as opposed to
7,797 men and more women
voted in the last election than
men," said Lucretia Strickland,
Hendry County's female Super-
visor of Elections. "Our oldest
woman voter was born in 1906,"
Ms. Strickland said, "she voted in
the last election, too."
Glades County voting records
show a similar pattern. "There
are 3,102 women voters in
Glades County and 3,105 men,"
said Holly Whiddon, Glades
County Supervisor of Elections.
"Our oldest woman voter is 99
years old and she voted in the
last election," Ms. Whiddon con-
tinued.
Other countries are different.
Since the Taliban has taken
over .Iran today, an Iranian
woman cannot leave her home
without a male family member
to chaperone her. Marian
O'Brien might have had a prob-
lein there. The Saudi's consider
woman "too indecisive" to drive
a car. Let Danica' Patrick or
NASCAR'S Erin Crocker hear
that one!

be answered. Gouging will not
be tolerated."

Crist has instructed Attorney
General personnel to investigate
specific complaints and ask the
following questions:
1) What was the retail price
of gasoline at the station on Aug.
23 (the date before' a state of
emergency was declared)?
2) When did the retailer pur-
chase the gasoline currently on
sale from the distributor, and
what retail price was being
charged on that date?
3) What is the current sale's
price today?
4) From whom did the retail-
er purchase the most recent
shipment of fuel that is being
sold today?.
This information will be used


to compile a complete picture of
fuel costs that will trace the ori-
gins. of the rapid increases. If
price gouging is found to have
occurred, a civil lawsuit can be
brought under Florida's Price
Gouging Law.
As part of the investigation,
the attorney general subpoe-
naed two gasoline distributors
earlier this week seeking records
of their deliveries into Florida.
Those companies are Colonial
Oil Industries and Murphy Oil
USA.
In July, the attorney general
subpoenaed two other gas dis-
tributors: Motiva Enterprises (a
subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell)
and Tate Oil Company, following
Hurricane Dennis.


How to help

"the Katrinians"


Many residents of Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama have
been forced from their homes,
and are in need of assistance.
These are not refugees, and
while they may be displaced,
many desire to return to their
communities. I've noticed some
difficulty in naming these folks,
and would suggest that they
might be called "Katrinians" -
those affected by this terrible
storm.
In the past two and a half
years that I've worked in Okee-
chobee, I've come to learn that
local residents are extremely
generous when it really counts.
The recent events in the Gulf
Coast have pulled at our hearts
and challenged us all to dig deep
into our pockets, especially in
light of our own local experi-
ences with severe weather.
With overwhelming media
coverage, many are very con-
cerned about what can be done
to ease the suffering and assist in
recovery. Officials have cau-
tioned us not to go on the road to
offer help, but we still desire to
lend a hand. And, rising fuel
costs and the expected higher
costs for future goods and servic-
es has got our attention. '
Today's column is designed to
offer suggestions on how to help
right here at home, and how to
cope with rising energy costs.
1.When driving Slow
down! Excessive speed wastes
fuel. Do you really need to pass
the car in font of you so you will
be in front of them at the next red
light? Speeding creates greater
opportunities for serious injury
and property damage. Accidents
will cost ALL drivers more in
insurance premiums, health
care costs, legal fees, traffic
school and tickets. Serious acci-
dents from speeding may
deprive you of people you love
forever. Wouldn't it be better to
arrive a few minutes or seconds
later? And, you can take all the
money you save in gas and costs
and send it to the Katrinians!
2. Maintain your vehicle: Tune
up your engine, check your tires
for proper inflation, change the
spark plugs, clean the air filters.


All of these common sense main-
tenance tips can save you gas.
3. Purchase a fuel-efficient
vehicle. If you don't need the 4x4
with hemi-supercharged
engines, if you aren't regularly
hauling armies of troops all over
Iraq, and if you don't regularly
pull livestock trailers, consider
trading in that gas guzzler for a
smaller vehicle that will pass
many more gas stations before
fill-ups.
4. Car Pool. Get together with
friends or relatives, plan your
driving trips in advance, and
have a friend to talk with on your
way about town. With less cars
on the road, it may even ease
traffic congestion.
5. Save Electricity. Turn off
unnecessary appliances, lights,
computers, TVs, chargers. Turn
up the thermostat in your home
and office. Since electricity
comes from power plants that
burn natural gas or oil, saving
electricity saves fossil fuels,
reducing the demand and lower-
ing fuel costs.
6. Send money to your
favorite charity. Check out the
guidelines supplied by the Feder-
al Trade Commission to see if the
charity is legitimate; we can give
you a copy or go online:
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/con-
line/pubs/tmarkg/charity.htm.
Decide where your donation is
best used to help displaced resi-
dents, rebuilding funds, emer-
gency relief supplies, faith-based
organizations, or service organi-
zations that you already know.
Our office cannot endorse any
particular organizations or funds,
but we can share a list of several
that have been referred to us
from other Extension offices and
staff in effected areas.
7. Donate purchased materi-
als (e.g. phone cards, non-per-
ishable food or personal comfort
supplies). Contact the charity
that will receive them to be sure
they can get them into needy
hands. Once you give the items
to, that charity, they must spend
money to deliver the goods -
and cash will help them pay for
these transportation costs. Don't
-send clothes or perishable foods.
