Glades General CEO resigns

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

after completing his first full
year as chief executive officer at
Glades General Hospital, Dan
Aranda has turned in his resig-
nation, effective two weeks
from today.
According to hospital offi-
cials, Mr. Aranda left under ami-
cable terms. Despite his depar-
ture, hospital staff said his short
tenure at the top post produced
positive changes that will
endure long after he leaves. -
According to Terry Calsetta,
who is responsible for patient
and public relations for the hos-
pital, Mr. Aranda announced his
intent to resign moments after a
board meeting Sept. 15, submit-

"I think the community was shocked and sad-
dened. He truly cared about the community."
Terry Calsetta

ting a 30-day notice.
"He said he accomplished
what he came here to do," Ms,
Calsetta said last week. "I spoke
to him after the meeting and
that's all he would say." Though
she said he remained quiet
about his reasons for leaving,
Ms. Calsetta believes Mr. Aranda
left under positive terms.
As of press time Mr. Aranda
vacationed in Finland, a trip he
reportedly scheduled weeks in
advance. He could not be con-
tacted for comment.
In the wake of Mr. Aranda's
announcement, the health care

district is reportedly undergoing
a recruitment effort to find a
new CEO, contacting a compa-
ny to aid in the search. In the
meantime, Dr. Ronald Wiewo-
ra, health care district medical
director, will serve as the inter-
im CEO.
Of Mr. Aranda and his deci-
sion to leave the hospital, Ms.
Calsetta said, "He accom-
plished a tremendous amount
in one year. The changes he
made will have a lasting effect
on this hospital."
Shortly after assuming con-
trol of the hospital last year

from private owners, the Palm
Beach County Health Care Dis-
trict hired Dan Aranda, who had
been working at a hospital on
the coast. During his time at
Glades General, Mr. Aranda
focused on improving the quali-
ty of services offered to patients,
at the same time reaching out to
physicians. Under his adminis-
tration, millions of dollars were
poured into rehabilitating the
aging hospital.
Recruiting qualified physi-
cians who had grown disenfran-
chised under the previous
administration of the hospital,
Mr. Aranda managed to attract a
number back to the hospital. At
the time of his resignation, he
continued working toward that
One of his more ambitious

projects was in convincing the
health care district that the area
warranted the construction of a
new hospital to meet the con-
tinuing demands of the commu-
nity. Mr. Aranda frequently listed
the construction of a new facili-
ty as one of his top goals.
Presently, the health care dis-
trict is studying the feasibility of
such a concept, having ordered
a master plan study to evaluate
the condition of the hospital
and the possibility of building a
new hospital.
Ms. Calsetta informed the
community of Mr. Aranda's res-
ignation during a chamber ban-
"I think the community was
shocked and saddened," said
Ms. Calsetta. "He truly cared
about the community."

South Bay to

review police


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

SOUTH BAY Though a
decision had been expected
earlier, the. South Bay City
Commission recently moved
one step dcl6ser to deciding
whether or not it will choose to
transfer its law enforcement
services from its current police
department to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office.
Approving a recommenda-
tion to allow the sheriff's office
to draft an official contract, the
commission expressed ques-
tions regarding .the position of
the city, and the options avail-

able to it, if it chooses to con-
tract its policing services to the
Vice-Mayor Esther Berry
had a chance to speak with res-
idents on the issue, and urged
the commission to consider
doing a study that will detail
exactly how the city stands to
be affected by such a decision.
Commissioner Shirley
Walker-Turner agreed that the
city should continue reviewing
its options, "that we can assure
our residents they are getting
the best possible service."

City to sell

property at

business park

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

BELLE GLADE The city of
Belle Glade will be voting to
approve or reject a contract for
the sale of two properties at its
business park at its next city
commission meeting. According
to officials, the deal represents
the continued progress taking
place at the business park.
Officials hope that the sale of
the two properties will not only
generate revenue from the sales
themselves, but say that the city
stands to gain through the possi-
bility of the creation of more jobs

that may employ people from
the area.
City staff has reportedly been
in communication over the last
several months with Cypress
Cooling a company that
processes and distributes foods
-who has plans to utilize addi-
tional space at the business park
to expand their enterprise. The
company is hoping to secure five
acres on the second 50 acres of
-the 100-acre business park.
SKA Enterprises is the second
interested party. The company is

PAHOKEE In order to
cement its commitment to the
city of Pahokee, and its hopes
for the future expansion and
growth of the local area, Fideli-
ty Federal is currently working
on giving the city a new bank to
replace the aging facility locat-
ed on South Lake.
Preparations are now being
made to locate a temporary
facility out of which employees
will work while the demolition
and construction project goes
on at the site. After moving into
the their temporary quarters,
bank officials say it will take
about a year and a half before
the new facility is opened.
Though several issues have
popped up that may affect how
quickly the bank is built -
including issues having to do
with the soft muck soil in the
Glades Michael Coady,
branch coordinator, hopes that
the bank will be in full opera-
tion months from now. "Time
will tell what we'll have to deal
with," he said.
Current plans call for bank
employees to move in to the
temporary facility Jan. 1 the
target date. The bank will contin-
ue serving customers through

"I personally think
this is one of the best
things Fidelity Feder-
al can do in the
Glades. We're a com-
munity bank."
Michael Coady,
branch coordinator
the construction project.
According to Mr. Coady, the
bank, built in the earlier half of
the last century, is a large facili-
ty with more space available
than is being used. At one
point, he understands, the
bank was used as the main
operational headquarters of
the First Community Bank
branches in the area.
As a result, the new struc-
ture will reflect a more stream-
lined design. Though smaller
than the original facility, it will
provide services and accom-
modations that'cannot be pro-
vided by the current bank
building. An example of the
new additions is the planned
drive-through, as opposed to
the existing remote drive-
through now available.
The architecture employed

by the bank is known as "Flori-
da Vernacular" according to
bank officials, with tropical
colors accentuating its features
and with a metal roof over it.
The goal is to keep the new
building "consistent to what
the old building represented to
the city."
The company unveiled its
plans officially to the city in a
workshop setting. According
to Mr. Coady, the city of Paho-
kee has been a good supporter
of the project. "We are about
the project," said Mr. Coady.
More importantly, he said,
the decision to construct a
brand new facility is demon-
strative of the company's
desire to continue serving the
residents of the Glades. With
development coming from the
east, he said, the move to con-
struct was "only logical."
Though specifics were not
available, the project cost is
said to be in the millions of
dollars perhaps between $1
and $2 million the average
cost of building a bank branch,
according to Mr. Coady.
"I personally think this is
one of the best things Fidelity
Federal can do in Ihe Glades,"
said Mr. Coady. "We're a com-
munity bank."

Hello again, I know all you read-
ers have heard of the Florida artists
"The Highwaymen". They've been
a hot item over the past years with
the value of their Florida landscape
paintings going up, up, up. I'm sure
they never dreamed that their
$39.99 paintings of the lush Indian
River landscape would someday
be selling for thousands of dollars.
It's not because these artists cre-
ated beautiful Florida landscape
paintings that they are so famous
today. Actually, their works are con-
sidered more of a folk art. They
thought nothing of using Upsom
board, Masonite, house paint or
whatever might be handy if money
wasn't available for canvas and
artist paints.
Even petty thieves, that know
absolutely nothing about art, are
tuned into how collectable these
extraordinary African American
painters' works are oftentimes
stealing "The Highwaymen" paint-
ings right off the walls of businesses
and homes.
This group of black artists work-
ing on the East coast would load
their cars down with their paint-
ings. Paintings that were some-
times mass-produced with each
artist having a specialty, and
adorned with the cheapest frames
they could find. Then they would
hit the road using every byway and
highway to reach every town and

The Highwaymen had no idea
they were creating Florida art histo-
ry. Never considering they were
earning their way into the Florida
Artist Hall of Fame with their life,
The Highwaymens' story began
with one man, the master of Flori-
da landscape painting, artist A. E.
"Beany" Backus. Beany's studio
was located in Fort Pierce where
the young men rallied around the
magnificent Florida artist. He
became, their mentor encouraging
them to paint and sell their work.
Backus, who died in 1990 at the
age of 84, found in the young black
artists what he loved: Art, good
conversation, good friends and a
,quantity of good rum. He inspired
`them to paint the beautiful Indian
River landscape of inlets, dramatic
Florida sunsets, moonlit rivers, and
Royal poinciana trees. That cama-
raderie between Beany and the
Highwaymen evolved into an art
movement that is known today as
the Indian'River School of Painting.
A. E. "Beany" Buckus was
inducted into the Florida Artist Hall
of Fame many years ago. I know
Beany would have been 'very
pleased to know that his "Highway-
men" have been honored there
also for their contribution to our
state's cultural art heritage.

A benefit concert

for their patriotism

There are heroes among us -
everyday people who make our
lives better just by doing their jobs,

na and Rita.
On Sunday, Oct. 9, there will be
an event, which will take time to
honor those people and say "thank
you" for their efforts an sacrifice, as
well as raise money to help the
helpers minister to the needs of
many people struggling from the
effects of Hurricane Katrina and
Rita. Please feel free to bring your
personal heroes along to join us!
Churches and individuals from
across the community are coming
together for a benefit concert of
patriotism and praise starting at 7

p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9, at the John
Boy Auditorium in Clewiston.
Come and enjoy special music,
heartwarming testimonies from
"Hurricane Ground Zero", as we
join together to praise God who
has blessed us as a great nation,
even in the midst .of devastating
storms. A love offering will be
taken for the hurricane victims.
If you would like to participate
in this event or if you would like
information, please call John Hicks
at (863) 983-5269. There are collec-
tion boxes set up in each of our
area banks where you can drop off
donations. Donations can also be

ignated for Red Cross, Salvation
Army, or Habitat for Humanity.

Clewiston hosts
first event
agement issues including con-
flict management will be
emphasized at the Florida Natural
Resources Leadership Institute,
which is now accepting applica-
tions for its new class that begins in
January 2006. Application deadline
is Nov. 1,2005.
Created for leaders in industry,
government, academia and the
;environmental and natural
resource management communi-
ties, the professional program is
designed to provide practical con-
cepts, tools and skills for use in
managing conflict over natural
resource issues. The training pro-
gram, conducted by the University
of Florida, consists of eight, three-
day sessions between January and
October 2006 at different locations
around the state.
"Managing and protecting envi-
ronmental resources in Florida is
more than just arguing about who
gets the biggest slice of a shrinking
pie," said Roy Carriker, a professor
of resource economics in UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (UF/IFAS) and director of
the leadership institute.
He said the program is designed.
to help people from different per-
spectives find common ground so
that they can collaborate more
effectively in dealing with natural
resource challenges facing Florida.
"When it comes to the environ-
ment, those participating in the
leadership institute are usually sur-
prised to discover how much they
actually agree on," Carriker said.
"As a result, people who had seen
each other as adversaries can
become partners in developing
solutions to important natural
resource problems."
In the eight training sessions,
participants study personal and
group leadership skills, communi-
cation skills, dispute management
techniques, and learn about law
and policy. Activities include tours
of natural resource sites around the
state and discussions with man-
agers, leaders and policy-makers
directly involved in growth-man-
agement issues.
"Participants or 'fellows' learn

about the science and policy
behind natural resource issues, and
explore alternatives for addressing
them," Carriker said. "The training
program is a 'real-world' project
through which the fellows apply
skills and concepts learned in the
program to actual conflict or lead-
ership issues in their professional
Each of the eight training ses-
sions includes a natural resource
area site tour and technical presen-
tations on a specific natural
resource problem or issue. Ses-
sions- feature- panel discussions
with stakeholders individuals or
group representatives with various,
sometimes competing, interests.
Sessions also include training in
communication, leadership, group
consensus building and conflict
Bruce Delaney, executive direc-
tor of the leadership institute, said
that a multidisciplinary faculty
team conducts the training, with
faculty from UF/IFAS and UF's
School of Natural Resources and
Environment covering resource
policy and interpersonal and group
communication skills. The Florida
Conflict Resolution Consortium at
Florida State University provides
trainers and practitioners in com-
.munity consensus building and
natural resources mediation. For a
second year, the institute's 2006
graduation program will be spon-
sored by Progress Energy Florida in
St. Petersburg.
Issues to be addressed in the
2006 program include: Everglades
restoration and farming in the Ever-
glades, Clewiston, Jan. 19-21; the
impact of development on water
quality and the clam industry,
Cedar Key, Feb.16-18; the
rural/urban interface, Sarasota,
March 16-18; sustainable 'ITeasure
Coast, Fort Pierce, April 20-22; infra-
structure siting issues, Ocala, May
18-20; southern water-use caution
areas, Ellenton, June 15-17; growth
management policy and. issues,
Wakulla Springs, Sept. 14-16;
practicum presentations and grad-
uation, Gainesville, Oct. 19-21.
Delaney said graduation from
the program is contingent on the
participant's involvement in all
eight sessions and successful com-
pletion of a practicum project.

Managing manure takes 'horse sense'

As the South Florida area
changes with more development,
some areas are also seeing an
increase in the horse population.
Folks fleeing the cities for rural
communities often want to buy a
horse or two as part of their new
lifestyle. The South Florida Water
Management District recently pub-
lished a guide to help horse owners
control the runoff from manure to
help ensure it will not adversely
affect water quality. Water quality is
important not only for healthy
ecosystems, but to ensure a safe
water supply for humans.
Horse manure is rich in nutri-
ents. That's why it is prized as a fer-
tilizer for roses. But those nutrients
can damage other ecosystems if
they get into the runoff from rain-
Equine BMPs (best manage-
ment practices) have been devel-
oped to limit or eliminate excess
phosphorus and other nutrients in
runoff from pastures. The BMPs
were developed with the coopera-
tion of horse owners, equestrian
facility managers, the South Florida
Trail Riders Association, IFAS and
the Florida Farm Bureau. BMPs
include tips on fencing, preventing
erosion, pasture management,
weed control and storm-water


with Katrina Elsken

To reduce erosion and avoid
water quality degradation, strategic
location of your fences needs to be
considered before installation.
Install fencing to allow rota-
tion and resting of pastures.
Fence off areas that receive
periodic standing water where pos-

soil erosion
*Exposed soil areas without
vegetative cover is susceptible to
soil erosion. Besides being detri-
mental to property values, soil ero-
sion allows soil sediments to drain
into nearby canals. Eroded sedi-
ment can have high levels of phos-
phorus. Erosion and sediment con-
trol practices will prevent surface
water quality problems and retain
the property's topsoil.
Maintain a vegetative buffer
strip between paddocks or pas-
tures and canals and roadways.
Construct berms where

Consider sub-dividing large
pastures into smaller ones and
develop a rotational grazing sys-
tem. Maintain grass on pastures by
rotating grazing areas and make
sure there is a drinking water
source for each pasture.
Overgrazing occurs when 50
percent or more of the plant has
been removed all at once. This
causes a stoppage of root growth
and reduces grass production.
Confine animals for a portion
of the day to prevent overgrazing.
Allow rest periods and use a
high-intensity, short duration graz-
ing technique to rejuvenate poor
Mow regularly to encourage
grass and reduce weeds.
Allow pasture grass to reach
six inches in height before grazing
and remove animals when three
inches height remains'.
Mow pastures to a uniform
height after grazing to stimulate
equal growth of all plants.
Fertilize pastures. If you are
not an experienced landscape pro-
fessional, use a "slow release" form
of fertilizer.
Before using a fertilizer, do a
soil test to see if it is needed. (If you
don't know how to do a soil test,
contact your local extension office
and ask how to contact a master
Read fertilizer labels com-
pletely and carefully. Do not over
Watch weather reports before
using fertilizer. Postpone fertilizing
if more than one inch of rain is
expected. Heavy rainfall can wash

the fertilizer into canals or other
Weed management
Search for individual weeds
and promptly remove, especially
near water bodies or wetlands.
Avoid moving livestock from a
weedy area to a weed-free area for
at least 24 hours.
Mow weeds regularly before
they go to seed.
Manure management
Remove manure from stalls
daily. Do not allow excess manure
to accumulate in paddocks, corrals
or pens.
Drag pastures as needed to
break up manure and to aerate the
manure with soil to encourage pas-
ture growth.
Maintain a good de-worming
program to prevent parasites and
worm eggs in manure.
Compost manure to create
topsoil fertilizer.
Create two manure piles -
one active and one dormant.
Position manure piles away
from canals, roads and neighbor-
ing plot lines.
Use composted manure on
lawns, gardens or pastures as fertil-
If your horses produce more
manure than you need for your
pasture and garden, arrange times
for neighbors, gardeners or nurs-
eries to pick up composted
Mud control
Install gutters and down-
spouts on buildings to divert rainfall
away from confinement areas.
Maintain a grass strip around
corrals, stalls and other confine-
ment areas to serve as a filter for
mud runoff.
Where feasible, construct
berms on your property to retain
storm-water and prevent runoff.
Create buffer strips of vegeta-
tion along canals and roadways.
Maintain water retention
areas on your property.
Leave a "ring of responsibili-
ty" around pasture ponds by not
fertilizing close to the water.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee

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.
CLEAN IT UP OR TEAR IT DOWN: Whoever owns the property on the
east side of the 500 block of SE 3rd should be very ashamed. The weed-
filled lot, with the house falling down, is an eyesore. I hope the city of Belle
Glade condemns the property and at least bulldozes the place.
POSITIVE THINGS: This is a citizen of Pahokee calling. I'd like to say
some positive things. I'd like to publicly thank (inaudible) for believing
enough in Pahokee to reopen the popular downtown restaurant right in
downtown Pahokee and they have done a fantastic job. It is going to be a
premier, clean, very new facility.
BIKE FESTIVAL: I just got the newspaper here in Pahokee and I find it
interesting that we're going to have a Bike Fest here in Pahokee? One
month away from the Grassy Waters Festival or are we going to have
Grassy Waters Festival? What's interesting is that this festival is put on by
the chamber of commerce for a good cause and to help the Red Cross
and the Alzheimer's Center, but the main cause, is they're putting it on
simply to promote one or two businesses and the people who own those
businesses don't even live in the city of Pahokee.
ANARCHY COMING: I'm calling.in reference to the comments about
crime in Belle Glade. The citizens of Belle Glade have a lot to look forward
to, as most of the city employees are leaving. They are also doing away
with the K-9 unit. Once the K-9 unit is gone, criminals will have free roam
of the city. You think you're missing property now? Wait until the K-9 is
gone and the other guys of the city. Once those officers are gone, all you're
going to have is new guys that don't want to make arrests. You need to
start at the top.
CROOKED FOOTBALL: As an avid high school football fan, I attend all
of the varsity and JV football games that are local. Recently, I have
become distressed at the amount of dirty tactics that some teams are
using. And I am appalled that Glades Day football team is the dirtiest. Foot-
ball is a rough sport, of course, but it is inexcusable for a coach to teach
his players to engage in late hits, clipping, and holding. It is also shocking
that Glades Day players jeer and taunt other teams when they win. I
would much rather see a team play a fair, clean game and lose than to
resort to crooked tactics to win and then be hateful about it. Shame on
you Gators.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. I have had the distinct pleasure of
following the Gators this year and have seen them play in all but one
game thus far this season. Going back early in my sports writing days, I
have found the Glades Day athletic programs to be the epitome of fair
play. It is inconceivable that any coach "encourages"penalties, knowing
that penalties can kill drives and cost football games. Bearing witness to
their last second win against Florida Christian, I saw a veryjubilant foot-
ball team, but also saw a level of sportsmanship that I rarely see in high
school sports, as the Gators very quickly composed themselves as ath-
letes. Interpretations vary greatly when it comes to what individuals see,
hear, or read. I recognize this as a legitimate fact of life, however, my
interpretation of the Gators differs from yours.
YOUR TURN FOR AN APOLOGY: I'm calling regarding the Clewiston-
Glades Central football game. The two teams played one heck of a football
game. It was a well played game ruined at the end by Glades Central. You
were winning 13-7, you know you were going to win the game, why not
take a knee and show respect. No, you go for another touchdown and get
it. Fine, you won 19-7. You showed a total lack of class. The principal at
Glades Central and especially the coaches owes the coaches of the Clewis-
ton players, the players in Clewiston and the fans in Clewiston an apology.
No reason for being so classless. It was a good game, played hard, why not
show some respect? No, Glades Central shows a total lack of class.

Spotlight on Education

This week's focus: Hurricane relief

By Kay Zaccagnino, West
Area Volunteer and Business
Partnership Coordinator,
School District of Palm
Beach County

Every so often, as an employee
of the School District, I receive
press releases of the activities that
are going on in all the schools.
This most recent one caught my
eye. It read, "Hurricane Katrina
Relief Activities in PBC Schools,"
so I opened it up to read the con-
It listed all these wonderful
things that the schools on the
"other" side of Palm Beach Coun-
ty were doing for the victims of
Hurricane Katrina, really gener-
ous things, but the problem was
that the great majority of the
schools that were listed were
schools outside of the Glades
The ONLY Glades school that
was listed was Gladeview Ele-
mentary, (Congratulations to
Gladeview Elementary. By the
way, the students at Gladeview
raised $1,442.18 and presented a

check to American Red Cross
Sept. 9) and I know that other
Glades area schools MUST have
-done something to help the vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina. As
generous and caring as we are,
surely someone in the other
schools came up with a service
learning project that involved the
students, teaching them about
caring for someone who has lost
every single belonging, including
their home. The reason we call
this a service-learning project is
because the students are per-
forming a community service
while learning about a particular
social/environmental problem.
A Service Learning Project
involves identifying a need in the
community or a social problem or
environmental issue, such as vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina, then
building a lesson around it. In
doing so, the teacher is enhancing
the education of her or his stu-
dents, teaching them about com-
passion, empathy, caring, giving
and understanding in a diverse
society. In this world we live in, it
is more important than ever to

educate our young people on the
importance of being empathetic
to victims of disaster, or people of
a different culture, or different
race, religion and so on.
If any school in the Glades area
has taken on a service-learning
project concerning Hurricane
Katrina, I'd like to make sure it
gets back to the School District
and printed on the Public Affairs
Web Page. Please contact me
with the information. It's only fair
that everyone is acknowledged.
E-mail me at
2.fl.us and I'll make sure that it
gets to Public Affairs, as well as
written about in this column.
Remember, Student Community
Service (or service-learning proj-
ects) is required for the 5-Star
I'm extremely proud of the
Gladeview Elementary students
for getting involved. I know that
the money they raised will be put
to good use. Those students
raised $1,442.18! These aren't
high school students Glade-
view is an elementary school! If

you're a parent of a child at Glade-
view, you should be very proud.
To raise that much money is quite
an accomplishment and it is
going to a very good cause. Every-
thing those people in Mississippi
and Louisiana and Alabama had
is gone, so that money will go a
long way in replacing those items
they so desperately need.
If you have something good
going on in your school that you'd
like to share, please e-mail me
with your information. I'll be
happy to write about it. My e-mail
is zaccagnino@mail.palm-
beach.kl2.fl.us. If you would like
to find out more about the volun-
teer program or the business part-
nership program, you may con-
tact me at (561) 996-4900, ext.
44604. If I'm not in the office,
please leave a message. I'm anx-
ious to light a fire of excitement
and good spirit in our community,
the only way I can do that is with
the full cooperation of everyone.
If you believe in the future of our
community, and want to, do
something to help the Glades
prosper, start with education.

Community Profile: Patricia Copeland

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

Q: What isyour name?
A: My name is Patricia Carolyn
Q: Where were you bom?
A: West Palm Beach, Florida.
I'm a native. I've been in the post
office for 19 years and three-quar-
ters. In February I'll be here 20
years. I started in Boca Raton Flori-
da. Then I went to West Palm,
which was third choice. I knew
that I wanted to be promoted, I'd
been a supervisor for so long. Post-
master is just a wonderful job, it
really is. It used to be much more
involved in the community and it
used to be ceremonial. But trust
me, they've added some responsi-
bilities to the job now.
Q: What doyou do?
A: I'm the postmaster. One of
my duties is to make sure that the
customers are satisfied, that the
mail is getting out to the customers
the way that it should be, that there
are no problems. My other duty is
to make sure that we are within
budget. That we are operating effi-
ciently and that we are not spend-
ing more money than we are mak-
ing. Generally, mostly a manager's
A: I love Belle Glade. I compet-
ed for the job of postmaster and I
was considered to be the best-
qualified candidate, but I'd worked
here right before I went to the
postal service. I worked with the
youth summer program where
they were teaching employability

skills to youth from Pahokee and
Belle Glade. I really enjoyed that
opportunity. There's so much
camaraderie, friendship. I love
Belle Glade. You just feel so at
home when you're here. You feel
that you can just let your hair down
and enjoy yourself, no pretenses. I
love the ride here, because I'm
always coming against the traffic.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: You never think about that.
I'm a certified facilitator for a
course called the seven habits of
highly effective speaking. It talks
about, whenever you get' ready to
build a house, you need a plan, so
that you know what you are trying
to do. So, for our lives we need a
plan and we call that our mission
statement. Basically what I tell you
more than anything about me is
that I truly want to demonstrate
that I love the Lord. He has every
aspect of my living. I'm a person
who is very much in peace, very
much thankful. I understand that I
have a purpose and I'm going to
fulfill that. I'm not quiet at all. I try
to be wise, though. I don't: just
speak just for the sake of speaking.
I try to make sure when I speak
that it's appropriate, and it's effec-
tive and it's necessary.
A: There's really nothing that I
fear. Fear is crippling. There may be
some anxieties about some things
and some apprehensions, but I'm
not really a fearful person because
fear serves no purpose as far as
obtaining anything in life that you
want to obtain. I'm cautious.

Sometimes I'm apprehensive.
(Q: Scared of any animal?) Oh,
now you made it real. Lizards,
cockroaches, snakes, spiders, all of
things, I don't like them. I under-
stand that I have dominion over
them, but yes, those things I don't
like at all. I understand that they
have no power over me and they
serve a purpose. But I'm not afraid
of them. I'll run, but that's wisdom.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: I like Gospel music. Probably,
"Sweet Hour of Prayer," because I
quoted it at my mother's funeral in
2004. Prayer sustains me now and I
look forward to the time when
we'll no longer need it. It makes
me feel thankful, just very thankful.
Q: What irksyou?
A: Lots of things. I would love to
make you think I'm the perfect
individual, but ... intolerance. Intol-
erance for people, regardless. I can
understand intolerance for stupidi-
ty, but intolerance simply because
of peoples' differences irks me. You
can get my ire up and you can get a
conversation going. You just see it
Q: What memory do you hold
A: Probably the birth of my son
Joshua because everyone I loved
who was alive at the time was
there. Everybody was there. It was
my only son, I had him old and
everybody was there and I'm trying
to have the baby and all the people
who loved me were there. The
nurse is going, "You want them
in?" I said, "Yeah, let them in." All
of them. "Just hurry up and get

through, get this over with."
My sister was there, my sister is
a joy to me. I was born on her 10th
birthday, so we're exactly 10 years
apart. My mother was there and
my mother had a humor that was
tremendous. My best friend was
there. My godmother was there.
My niece was there.:
You'll never forget that because,
here I am going to have the only
child that I've ever given birth to. I
have a niece I call my daughter
because she's been with me all of
her life, she's 15 years old, and I
adore her.
If I had to say one of my most
memorable events, it would be the
day my daddy died, because we
had a wonderful time together. He
was comatose.
I was a daddy's girl. So those
things: The birth of my son, the day
my dad died, the day my mom
died. I was blessed with my par-
(Q: How did your dad treat
you?) Like the world was mine and
the world revolved around me. (Q:
How did your mornm, treat you?)
Like the world was mine and the
world revolved around me. (Q:
How do you treat your son?) Not
that the world revolves around
him, I want him to know that he
has a purpose to serve in this
world. It's to serve others and to do
something for somebody else. It's
not all to be done for him. He is
here to help and to do something
for somebody else.
I teach him and my niece that,
that we are here to serve.

For the Bible tells me so, that's why

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Dan Brown's "DaVinci Code"
has sold 40 million copies. Dr.
Spock's "Baby and Child Care" has
sold over 50
million copies.
But those are
compared to
Harry Potter.
The com-
bined sales of
all six books in
the series is
somewhere Pastor John
around 300 mil- Hicks
lion copies. But
that's still just a third of the 900 mil-
lion copies of "the Little Red Book,"
a.k.a. "Quotations from Chairman
Mao Tse-Tung". Mao is number
two on the all time list of best-
sellers. You probably know where I
am heading with this.
The Bible has been printed so
many, times that the experts are
uncertain of the total. Some say it
could be as high as six billion
copies in print. 'Ienty million a
year are sold in the United States,
100 million annually worldwide.
What motivates people to buy
Bibles in such numbers? Are they
trying to convert their block, shar-
ing them with the neighbors, send-
ing them in plain packages to
China and Afghanistan and other
places where it is illegal to own a
Bible? Not very likely.
We are surrounded with images
of floods and famines, suicide
bombers in subways, school
shootings, politicians who lie to the
public, movie stars who change

spouses as often as they change
hairstyles, plane crashes and shut-
tle explosions, escalating gasoline
prices, outsourcing of jobs, and an
ever-increasing vulgarity and lack
of civility and decency in our cul-
ture. In the face of these realities
and more, people look for some-
thing solid on which to stand,
something unmoving to anchor to.
The Bible gives us this.
In the Bible, we find the story of
a God who creates, who forgives,
who lifts up, who weeps with the
weeping and rejoices with the
rejoicing, who would always heal,
who is victorious in the end over
pain, suffering, evil, fate, despair,
destruction. We see the story of a
Savior God who loves us with an
everlasting love.
There's an old story about the
father whose son wanted a car for
graduation. On the night of gradua-
tion, the father handed him a pack-
age. The boy opened it and discov-
ered a Bible. He was angry that he
hadn't been given a car. He fought
with his father screamed and
said things that he could never take
back. The son packed up his
belongings, moved out of the
house,' and never spoke to his
father again.
Several years later, his father

How long has it been since you
opened your Bible? Chances are
you won't find hidden cash, but
you will find a truth that is worth far
more than all of the cars that have
ever been made and sold on every
car lot in every land.
Karl Barth, noted theologian, hit
on this truth when he was asked to
share the greatest thing he had
learned in all of his biblical studies.
He shared 12 words: "Jesus loves
me, this I know, for the Bible tells

me so.
"Jesus loves me, this I know, for
the Bible tells me so. Little ones to
him belong. They are weak and he
is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes,
Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves
me. The Bible tells me so."
This is, at a very basic level,
which we never fully outgrow, the
message at the heart of the Bible.
God loves me. And, yes, Jesus loves
me. That love will help get me
through any storm or situation. The
Bible tells me so.

ton Police Department reports
that on Sept. 21 the Clewiston
Police Department's Narcotic's
Unit conducted a controlled
delivery of crack cocaine that
resulted in the arrest of two
males, Ryan Otguest Willis, DOB
12/21/76, and Kevin Rolle, DOB
03/24/75, both of Belle Glade.
The undercover officers
ordered a large delivery of crack
cocaine, representing a street
value of approximately $7,500
from an out-of-county supplier
known to law enforcement to be
a major provider of cocaine to
our local area. The supplier
agreed to meet at an undisclosed
area within the city of Clewiston.
Once the supplier arrived at the
location, the Narcotics Team
secured the two individuals and
performed a search of the vehi-

The search resulted in the dis-
covery of 130 grams of crack
cocaine. The cocaine was locat-
ed between the two front seats
where Willis and Rolle were sit-
ting at the time of the arrest. Both
suspects were arrested and
booked into the Hendry County
Jail where they were charged for
Delivery of Crack Cocaine within
1,000 feet of school, and traffick-
ing of Crack Cocaine within
1,000 feet of school. Both sus-
pects are presently housed in the
Hendry County Jail with bonds
set at $350,000 each awaiting
possible Federal Indictments on
these charges.
The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment has changed their focus of
attention to target the out-of-
county suppliers who are known
to bring narcotics into our juris-
diction. The Clewiston Police
Department would like to again
thank the concerned citizens
who have voiced their disap-
proval of the drug activities in our
community by providing assis-
tance and information to the
police department in the appre-
hension of narcotics violators.

Report details progress in protecting ecosystems

By MaryAnn Morris
The South Florida Environmen-
tal Report, prepared by South Flori-
da Water Management District
(SFWMD), provides data sum-
maries for all major ecosystems in
South Florida during "water year"
2005 (May 1,2004 through April 30,
2005). Public comment can be
made via a Web blog on the
SFWMD Web site
The South Florida environment
is large, complex and diverse. Many
areas are of concern when consid-
ering the health of the Everglades
and the health of residents of this
ecologically rich and diverse
Kissimmee Watershed: The
Kissimmee Watershed is the head-
waters of the greater Kissimmee-
Okeechobee-Everglades ecosys-
tem and encompasses about
6,200-square miles of southern
Central Florida. The Upper Basin is
an important regional water
source. This diverse natural
resource forms an ecological tran-
sition between the temperate cli-
mate to the north and the sub-trop-
ic areas to the south. The
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes is 28
interconnected lakes that work
hydrologically and ecologically as a
resource of a regional size. Water
levels in the lakes are controlled
through a series of canals and con-
trol structures.
Historically the Kissimmee River
meandered about 103 miles
through an area one to two miles
wide called a floodplain. As part of
early flood-control efforts, the river
was channelized and two-thirds of
the floodplain was drained
between 1962 and 1971. Unfortu-
nately, this resulted in drastic
declines in wintering waterfowl,
wading bird and game fish popula-
Restoration of the river was
authorized by the U.S. Congress of
1992, with the goal to restore 40-
square miles of river, floodplain
ecosystem and 43 miles of mean-
dering river channel and 27,000
acres of wetlands. Part of this pro-
gram will evaluate benefits to more
than 320 fish and wildlife species
including the endangered Wood
Stork, Snail Kite and Bald Eagle.

research and on-going monitoring

Early visitors to Florida found a
pristine environment rich in
wildlife and foliage.
"Just. south of Palmdale, we
crossed Fisheating Creek, a pictur-
esque stream, meandering
through the almost uninhabited
prairie, between banks either
exposed to the sun or clothed in
shrubs and bright colored asters or
hammocks of oaks, ash and
maple, which in some places give
way to groves of palmettos that
often lean far over the water's
edge," wrote John Kunkle Small in
his account of a trip he made in
1917 to visit the Big Cypress.
"After leaving the hammocks,
which border the creek we drove
out on the prairie again and few
trees came into view for a distance
of about eighteen miles, until the
hammocks bordering the Caloosa-
hatchee appeared," he continued.
Mr. Small was head curator of the
Museums and Herbariums of the
NY Botanical Garden at that time.
Mrs. George, whose husband,
M.F. George built many early build-
ings in the area, including the first

protect the natural and recreational

Coastal Ecosystems: Coastal
Ecosystems are the near ocean
shelf, coastal lagoons estuaries,
marshes, sloughs, tidal creeks and
freshwater rivers and canals that
come from the watershed. These
are mostly tropical and subtropical
ecosystems known for their diversi-
ty of species and wide variety of
aquatic and upland habitats.
Spiney lobster, penaeid shrimp,
blue crab, oyster, spotted sea trout,
stone crab are some of the marine
and freshwater species of commer-
cial and recreational interest.
Coastal areas attract intense
human development making these
areas especially threatened by

the late 1800s. The lagoon and
estuary are threatened by increas-
ing residential and commercial
development, industry and agricul-
ture. Man-made changes have
caused significant changes in the
timing and amount of freshwater
coming into the estuary. Extreme
variations in fresh vs. salt water and
pollution from human develop-
ment and agriculture is killing the
estuary's seagrass and oysters.
Caloosahatchee River and
Estuary: The connection between
Lake Okeechobee and the
Caloosahatchee Estuary dates back
to 1881, when it was dug to lower
the water level in the lake and start
draining the Everglades to allow
development. Now there is a fresh-
water canal connected to a shallow
bay with extensive seagrass beds,
mangrove forests and sand flats.
The estuaries in southwest Florida
are habitat to more than 40 percent
of Florida's rare, threatened and
endangered species. Available
water supply, variations in salinity
and levels of nutrients from runoff
are major issues. Overall, urban
growth, input of floodwater and
nutrients from agricultural activities
are the major issues. The goal for

Stucco may have been wrongly blamed for some leaky homes

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Stucco, a
cement-based product used to coat
buildings, may have been wrongly
blamed for causing at least some of
the leaks that struck thousands of
Central Florida homes during the
2004 hurricane season, says a Uni-
versity of Florida expert investigat-
ing stucco's water resistance.
"The intensity of those storms
raised some new questions about
home construction in Florida," said
Wendell Porter, an assistant
research scientist with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences. "We are looking at one of
them how is stucco affected by
prolonged exposure to horizontal
rainfall? I think it's too early for any-
body to have a definitive answer."
Porter's initial findings showed
that a water spray simulating ordi-
nary rainfall did not soak through

stucco-coated panels even after 10
hours of continuous exposure, he
said. But the next phase of the UF
study, expected to begin in early
2006, will blast the panels with hur-
ricane-force rain and wind.
"It sounds odd, but we want to
stress the stucco to the point of fail-
ure," Porter said. "Then we can
duplicate the conditions in a con-
trolled environment and learn how
the failures happen."
The study will help determine
whether current construction prac-
tices could be improved, he said.
But it could also resolve a yearlong
controversy over storm damage.
During Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne, thousands of
homes in the Orlando area suffered
.serious leaks that ruined carpet,
drywall and other materials, he
said. Some builders made repairs

free of charge but others refused,
saying hurricanes were "acts of
God" not covered by home war-
"Homeowners asked what
went wrong, and some people
were quick to blame stucco, saying
it's porous and therefore leaks
were unavoidable," Porter said.
"That's an oversimplification.
There are many variables that
could cause a home to leak during
a hurricane. As far as stucco goes,
the composition, use, application
and maintenance could all affect its
water resistance."
A mixture of portland cement
and other materials such as sand or
lime, stucco is considered a tough,
durable coating for the exterior
walls of buildings, he said. Stucco is
commonly associated with Span-
ish-style architecture typical of the

U.S. Southwest but is also popular
in Central and South Florida. .
"Once you get south of Ocala,
the majority of Florida homes have
a stucco exterior," Porter said. "So
we need to understand how to use
this material properly in hurricane-
prone areas, and the way to find
that out is to look at one variable at
a time."
Porter's initial goal is to deter-
mine how much rain and wind it
takes to cause significant cracking
and leaking in large, stucco-coated
panels that simulate exterior wall
sections of typical Florida homes,
he said.
The study involves 20 panels, all
measuring 4 feet by 8 feet and built
according to Florida building code
requirements, he said. Each panel
is slightly different from the others,
to make it easier for the researchers

Martinez: U.S. infant morality rate too high

to assess which construction for-
mats are more water resistant.
In the first phase, which has
been completed, researchers were
able to confirm that water did not
penetrate the stucco by examining
the interior of each panel through a
built-in opening, Porter said.
To prepare for the second
phase, students in a UF agricultural
engineering class are developing a
fan-like device to generate winds
mixed with water droplets, he said.
When the device is built, Porter will
cut small sections from the panels
and subject them to simulated hur-
ricane conditions, with winds of up
to 110 mph.
Once the researchers under-
stand how the panels perform,
they will begin a third phase of the
study, changing different aspects of
the panel construction to try to pro-
duce better water resistance, Porter
"Eventually, we may be able to
recommend some changes to the

Florida statewide building code,"
he said. "I'm sure we'll learn things
bit by bit as we move along."
UF researchers may want to pay
special attention to the composi-
tion of the stucco they use, espe-
cially if it includes sand, said
Michael Roberts, a stucco expert in
Orange, Calif. In the mid-1990s,
Roberts and colleagues conducted
a study that showed sand quality
had a significant affect on stucco's
water resistance.
Sand containing substantial
amounts of clay encourages leaks,
he said, because clay particles
expand dramatically when wet and
then shrink as the stucco dries,
leaving empty spaces where water
can enter.
"We tried out many different
combinations of materials, and we
found pretty much what we
expected," Roberts said. "The poor
quality mixtures leaked, and the
high quality mixtures did not."

Mel Martinez (R-FL) stressed the
importance of prenatal health
care and called for greater aware-
ness among Americans of infant
mortality. To achieve greater
awareness Senator Martinez intro-
duced Senate Resolution 239
establishing September 2005 as
Infant Mortality Awareness Month.
The U.S. Senate agreed to the res-
"Reducing infant mortality
depends in large part on raising

awareness and educating people
to the causes of infant mortality,"
said Martinez. "This is a highly pre-
ventable cause of death and sim-
ply must be addressed in a com-
prehensive and community-wide
Infant mortality still ranks as a
significant cause of death in the
United States. In 2002 the infant
mortality rate in the United States
increased for the first time in more
than four decades. The United
States currently ranks 28th among

industrialized nations in the rate of
infant mortality.
"We have a responsibility to
reduce these preventable deaths,"
said Senator Martinez. "Research,
improved access to pre-natal and
newborn care, and promoting
healthy behaviors among families
will result in stronger and healthi-
er babies."
In addition to increasing
national awareness, Senator Mar-
tinez's resolution calls on the Con-
gress to facilitate activities that will

Assist local communities in their

established by the Secretary of

Meanwhile, Mayor Clarence
Anthony urged his fellow com-
missioners to carefully consider
the transition, pointing out the
services that the sheriff's office
would provide under the contract
- services he said the city cannot
presently offer its citizens, includ-
ing helicopter and PAL services.
"Our responsibility is to pro-
vide law enforcement services to
our citizens," said the mayor.
"How we do that ... is an impor-
tant decision." From a perspec-
tive of business, the mayor said,
the contract for services repre-
sents an attractive option for sav-
ings and an increase in service.
The contract will be for a term
of five years, though the city will
retain the right to cancel the con-
tract at any time with notice.
According to city leaders, the city
will see hundreds of thousands of
dollars in realized savings each
year. Deputies assigned to the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office South Bay District will ride
in cars that feature the city's
name so citizens can recognize
local patrol vehicles.
One question remained as to
how the existing police officers
would fare under the transition,
and whether they would contin-
ue to have a job. According to
Police Chief Michael Morris, talks
with a previous administration at
the sheriff's office last year dis-
counted half of the police depart-

munity? Do you dance, participate
with a step team, sing, recite poetry
or do praise dances? If so, we want
you to come and show off your tal-
ent and win great prizes for each
category. If you are interested,
please contact Mrs. Jessie Terry at

the requirements of former Sher-
iff Ed Bieluch.
Under the new sheriff, Ric
Bradshaw, every member of the
current police department bar-
ring any remarkable barrier -
will be offered a position within
the sheriff's office, according to
the chief. Talks between the sher-
iff's office and the city offers staff
an understanding with which
they are comfortable. As a result
of the transfer of the existing offi-
cers to the sheriff's office, no one
will be laid off, and, in fact, the
officers stand to see considerable
increases to their salary as county
employees, the chief said. Nine
officers would be affected.
Commissioner John Wilson
said he would like a chance to
see a finalized contract, as
opposed to reviewing a sample
contract of the agreement the
sheriff's office currently has in
place with the city of Lake Park.
The action to continue working
with the sheriff's office, and the
conceptual approval of the con-
tract was approved 3-2, with
Commissioner Walker-Turner
and Vice-Mayor Berry opposed.
The city will have an opportu-
nity to review the finalized con-
tract once it returns from the
county, voting on whether or not
to enter into the agreement. The
city manager, as well as the city
attorney, will be involved in the
negotiation of that contract.

securing additional land to accom-
modate the growing number of
businesses expressing an interest
in moving their operations to the
business park.
Initial work on the plan to
acquire close to 400 additional
acres began when a company
approached the city with the con-
cept for a fish farm. Though talks
with that company have slowed,
other companies continue to
search for land in the city to build,
prompting officials to act quickly in
securing access to that extra land.
Last week, City Manager Hous-
ton Tate told the commission he
was preparing a trip to Tallahassee
to try to secure that land for the city.
PRIDE, a company, now holds the
lease to that property and the man-
ager, with the involvement of
County Commissioner Tony
Masilotti, hopes to convince all par-
ties involved that the property is
essential to the continued success
of the city's business park.

Late scores lift Raiders over Tigers by score of 19-7

ByBill Fabian

-ton Tigers traveled to Glades
Central High School to line up
,against the perennial power-
'house and rival Raiders, but lost
the game 19-7 as' the Raiders
scored two touchdowns in the
final minutes of the contest.
The Class 4A Raiders (4-0)
showcased not only a speedy,

reactive defense, but a consis-
tent short-yardage passing game
mixed with big plays. The
Raiders were successful in hold-
ing the visitors to just a single
touchdown. I
The game was slow develop-
ing, which has come to charac-
terize many of the two teams'
meetings in the last several
years. The game began with a
scoreless first quarter, and
remained a scoreless tie until the

Raiders struck first with a big
Quarterback Bryan Mann
connected to Anthony Norton,
who broke a tackle in the back-
field and charged downfield for a
60-yard score. The score
remained 7-0 through, halftime
and well into the second half.
The Tigers (1-3) evened the
score at 7-7 when junior quarter-
back Jared Combass threw a 30-
yard strike to junior flanker John

Melton with 10 minutes left in
the fourth.
The Tiger defense held the
Raiders on the next set and put
the offense in good position near
midfield. Following an exchange
of fumble recoveries, the Clewis-
ton offensive drive was stopped
when Raider defender Rashard
Adderly intercepted a Combass
pass and returned it 25 yards.
Glades Central scored five plays
later when quarterback Bryan

Blue Devils continue the win streak

By: Nina G. Wills

There is an old saying in foot-
ball: "Offenses win games, but
defenses win championships."
Someone must have reminded
the Pahokee Blue Devils defense
of this fact. Last Friday night, the
Pahokee defense once again
played championship caliber
football against the Atlantic
Eagles and helped secure Paho-
kee's third consecutive victory.
This game was a tale of two
halves. Pahokee dominated the
first half of play offensively and
defensively. On the Eagles open-
ing drive, senior defensive end
Un'Tavious Scott forced a fum-
ble and recovered the ball in the
Eagles' territory. Pahokee's
offense moved the ball down to
the five-yard line. Pahokee faced
a fourth and goal but could not
convert. The Devils defense held
the Eagles in check, though.
On Pahokee's next posses-
sion, senior quarterback Robert
"Rah Rah" Love threw a perfect
42-yard pass to Martavious
Odoms for a touchdown and
Pahokee was on the scoreboard.
The PAT was good by kicker Jose
Rodriguez. On Atlantic's next
possession, Free Safety Tamar-
cus Porter recovered an Atlantic
fumble, and raced 37 yards for
another Blue Devils touchdown.
Pahokee set up for a fake kick,
but Robert Love was unable to
make the two-point conversion.
,In less than a minute Pahokee
was up 13 to 0 on Atlantic. The
Devils' defense had Atlantic's
offense confused and bewil-
dered for the entire first half.
Pahokee put together a nice
drive early in the second quarter.
The offense mixed it up with

runs by Ricky Gary and throws
from Love to Odoms. With 7:43
left to go in the half, Janoris
Jenkins had a 15-yard touch-
down run, putting the Devils up
18 to 0. Late in the second quar-
ter, Atlantic did get the screen
play going. This would hurt
Pahokee's defense more than
once. It took the Devils' too long
to react to this kind of play.
Atlantic faced a first and goal,
and the Devils' defense held the
Eagles to a field goal. The 34-
yard kick was booted through
the uprights by Eagles' kicker
John Stec. On Pahokee's next
possession, the offense was able
to answer the Eagles by driving
down the field. Freshman run-
ning back Vincent Smith scored
on a five-yard touchdown run
and the Blue Devils went up 25-3
to end the first half of the play.
To start the second half, the
Atlantic Eagles tried an on-side
kick. Pahokee recovered the
kick, but was not able to put any-
thing together on their drive.
Stalled by costly penalties and a
fired up Atlantic defense, Paho-
kee was forced to punt. Punter
Jose Rodriguez mishandled the
snap and fumbled the ball. Ira
Lee Mosley picked up the ball
and ran 25 yards into the end
The Pahokee team was
shocked at the turn-around of
events. After playing with a com-
fortable lead, the Blue Devils
were forced to play harder.'
Atlantic tried another on-side
kick. Again, recovered by Paho-
kee on the Blue Devils 46-yard
line. With 6:34 left in the third
quarter, the Blue Devils fumbled
the ball. The Eagles recovered.
Atlantic moved 86 yards in 11

plays down the field. With 2:08 to
go in the third quarter, Pahokee
had a scare. Star cornerback and
team leader Ricky Gary was hurt
on a play. He was obviously in a
tremendous amount of pain and
had to be helped to the sidelines.
On Atlantic's next play, Cleveland
Hankerson ran four yards. into
the end zone. This was the first
touchdown given up by Paho-
kee's defense in 11 quarters of
play. Atlantic was attempting a
comeback and cut Pahokee's
lead to just eight points.
On the first play of the Blue
Devils next possession, Jenkins
ran 69 yards virtually untouched
for Pahokee's fifth touchdown of
the game. Even Gary got up from
the bench and joined in the cele-
bration. This one play turned the
game around. It revitalized a
very tired and frustrated Paho-
kee team. When Pahokee need-
ed big plays in this game, some-
one stepped up to the plate. This
play ended the third quarter.
Ricky Gary did re-enter the
game, but played at the safety
position. It was obvious Gary
was hurting, but he refused to sit
out of the game. Gary bruised
his right hip making it difficult to
bend over. Love stepped in as
cornerback and knocked the
ball away from an Atlantic
receiver on a key third down.
Pahokee had to punt on its next
possession. With less than five
minutes to go in the game,
Atlantic was able to get on the
board one more time with a
quick screen pass to Preston
Parker. It was a 92-yard play. The
PAT kick failed. With 1:15 to go
in the final quarter, Pahokee was
able to run the clock out and
hold on to their win.

Pahokee's team has matured
considerably in the last three
games. They are playing as a team
unit and are more focused enter-
ing each game. This Blue Devils
team has re-established its cham-
pionship title hopes with strong
performances the last three
weeks. The defense did give away
a few big plays in the second half,
but never allowed the Eagles to
take the lead in the game. Paho-
kee will be facing Melbourne Cen-
tral Catholic at home this Friday
night. It will be a key district game
for the Blue Devils.
Team Statistics:
Robert Love was 10 of 18 for
142 yards with one TD and no

Players of the Game: Pahokee
Blue Devils Defense
Linebacker Rudy Robinson
put pressure on the Eagles QB
several times and made key tack-
Defensive Lineman Micanor
Regis made several key tackles.
Defensive End Un'Tavious
Scott forced a fumble and recov-
ered it.
Tamarcus Porter recovered a
fumble for a touchdown.

Mann connected for 17 yards
with flanker Deonte Thompson
with 2:22 left on the clock.
Clewiston had one last
attempt to take control of the
game but their hopes ended
when Glades Central held them
on downs.
With less than a minute left to
play, the Glades Central offense
began to run a series of reverse
plays to continue moving the
ball downfield, running out of
bounds to stop the clock. The
Raiders final score came on a
six-yard run by tailback Aston
Samuels as the game ended.
Tiger Head Coach Tommy
Morrell was disappointed in the
outcome, but acknowledged the
team's determination. "Our kids
played their hearts out against a
talented opponent tonight. I'm
proud of the determination they
displayed, but we still came up
short. Against Glades Central,
you pay for mistakes. Fortunate-
ly, we've now gotten our non-
district rivalries out of the way
and must now begin focusing on
our upcoming district contests."
Clewiston's running offense
and the tenacious defense kept
them in the contest most of the
way. Junior tailback Jamal
Hubert gained 108 yards on 19
attempts. Linebacker D.J.
Bartlett led the Tiger defense
with eight solo tackles, a fumble
recovery and a running sack.
The Raiders showed domi-
nance in the final numbers, with
running back Samuels stacking

Tiger linksters tee off on

Brahmans and Dragons

By Mark Young
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
Tiger golfers wrapped up back-to-
back victories last week after top-
pling Okeechobee 167-185 and
then hosted Lake Placid to down
the Dragons'172-193 in impres-
sive victories.
Tiger number one seed Bran-
don Pena, a sophomore, posted a
35, which was 11 strokes better
than Okeechobee's Corey White
to put the Tigers in a great posi-
tion. Senior number two man,
Brett Cameron scored a 44, five
strokes better than his Brahman
counterpart who scored a 49.
Steven Westbury, another
Tiger up and comer as a sopho-

more, posted 42 at the third seed,
outscoring the Brahman number
three man 42-47. Senior Stephen
Duplooy shot a 52, Jared Bacalleo
scored a 50, and Justin Cotton
posted a 46 for the Tigers.
Pena's one-under 35 highlight-
ed the action at Okeechobee and
Westbury's 42 was his best score
of the season while posting the
second lowest score of the day.
The Tigers left Okeechobee
with a solid victory and returned
home the following day to host
the Dragons from Lake Placid,
looking to avenge a pair of one-
shot losses from last season. The
21-stroke margin of victory says it
all for the Tigers who claimed the
win and their revenge.
Pena led the way with a 37 on

Clewiston's golf course, which
was 12 strokes better than Lake
Placid's number one golfer.
Cameron put up a 48 and West-
bury almost duplicated his sea-
son's best score after shooting a
43, a dozen strokes better than his
Dragon counterpart.
James Miracle stepped in for
the Tigers in this match and shot a
solid 44, outpacing his Lake
Placid opponent by five strokes.
Josh Adams shot a 51 and Kyle
Kirstein posted a 48.
The Tigers go up on the season
with a solid 6-1 overall record.
The Tigers will have played in the
annual Sadie Hawkins 18-hole
tournament, sponsored every
year by Sebring High School, by
press time.

Clewiston's Juanita Perez gave
the Lady Tigers a second top 10
effort after placing eighth with a

U.S. Sugar farmers 'Facing death by a thousand cuts'

sugar farmers are at a cross-
roads, a sugar industry official
said in a speech at the Center for
Strategic and International Stud-
ies. And if America's trade policy
doesn't evolve, he warned, "U.S.
sugar farmers could be facing
death by a thousand cuts."
"The Central America Free
Trade Agreement will hurt us.
But the combined effect of pend-
ing trade deals with Colombia,
Thailand, South Africa, Panama,

and Brazil could kill us," said
Jack Roney, director of econom-
ic and policy analysis with the
American Sugar Alliance. "If
sugar continues to be used as a
bargaining chip by our trade
negotiators, we'll be hard
pressed to survive."
The United States is the only
major sugar producing country
that has traded away huge
chunks of its domestic sugar
market to subsidized foreign
competitors. In fact, NAFTA and

CAFTA are the only trade deals
between sugar producing coun-
tries to ever include significant
sugar market-access mandates.
Past trade deals force Ameri-
ca to import sugar from 41 coun-
tries every year whether the mar-
ket needs the sugar or not. And
with 21 sugar-producing coun-
tries lined up for new trade
deals, Roney warned that there
may soon be little market left for
efficient. U.S. farmers, who do
not receive government checks.

"The worst part about piece-
meal trade agreements is that by
design they don't address the
foreign subsidies and trade prac-
tices that so greatly distort the
world's sugar market," he said.
The world sugar market is lit-
tle more than a price-volatile
dump market where less than 25
percent of the world's sugar is
sold below world production
costs with the aid of subsidies.
Reform of the distorted dump
sugar market can only be

Martinez announces AG bill passage

Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)
announced Senate passage of
over $52 million in agricultural
project funding specifically for
Florida. Included in the Senate
Agriculture Appropriations bill is
$40 million for Citrus Canker
Eradication. The bill passed the
Senate (97-2) today. Differences
with the U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives must be reconciled
before the measure can proceed
to the White House.
"The biggest chunk of this
funding is the most critical to

Florida agriculture," said Senator
Martinez. "Citrus Canker is liter-
ally destroying one of Florida's
most important crops. I'm glad
my colleagues recognize that fact
but there's more that needs to be
done, especially in the area of
compensation. I would especial-
ly like to thank Senator Bob Ben-
nett for agreeing to bring up the
canker compensation matter in
In addition to securing funds
for citrus canker eradication,
Senator Martinez requested of
Senate leadership that compen-

station funds be added during
negotiations with the House of
"Agriculture is a huge part of
Florida's economy," said Sen.
Martinez. "We must continue to
study and research ways to
improve that industry."
The majority of the remaining
funds targeted for Florida
address agricultural research. For
instance, Senator Martinez was
able to secure $3.6 million for
Florida State University to study
risk reduction for agricultural
crops; $6 million for Floriculture
& Nursery Research Initiative to

address critical issues related to
pests and diseases and environ-
mental management; $700,000
for the University of Central Flori-
da to study Citrus Chloroplast
Genomics and Genetic Engineer-
ing; $494;000 for Florida Citrus
Mutual Citrus Canker Research;
$446,000 for Florida Citrus Mutu-
al Diaprepes Research; $350,000
for the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Lake Okeechobee Water-
shed Planning; and $50,000 for

World Trade Organization,
Roney told the group. And that,
he said, is where the Administra-
tion should be focusing all of its
efforts, not on new trade deals.
"We are not against free
trade. Like this Administration,
we are for free trade trade


that's free of all subsidies and all
market distortions," Roney con-
cluded. "That's why we remain
perplexed by sugar's inclusion in
bilateral trade deals. Let's go to
the WTO and deal with this glob-
al issue once and for all so we
can compete like businessmen
on a level playing field."

New Orleans boys' school to

reopen at UF 4-H youth camp

Street Academy, a private school
in New Orleans for underprivi-
leged boys, will reopen Oct. 3 at
a 4-H youth camp in Niceville,
Fla., thanks to the University of
Florida extension service and the
school's development director,
Florida Gator football star Danny
The school, which closed
after Hurricane Katrina battered
New Orleans, will lease the Tim-
poochee 4-H Center, better
known as Camp Timpoochee.
About 100 boys in grades 7-12
will live and study at the.camp
until May 20, 2006. The students
are scattered across the United
States, living in shelters or the
homes of friends and relatives.
Larry Arrington, dean for
extension at UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
in Gainesville, said the UF exten-
sion service is committed to
assisting in recovery efforts for
victims of the Gulf Coast storm.
"When we learned there was
a possibility of housing these
boys at the camp, we moved
quickly to make it happen, and
we're very pleased that every-
thing worked out so well,"
Arrington said.
Camp Timpoochee is operat-
ed by 4-H, the youth develop-
ment program of UF's extension
service that has offices in every
Florida county, he said. Arrange-
ments to lease the camp to
Desire Street Academy began
about one week ago when
Lamar Christenberry, UF Escam-
bia County extension director,
learned that representatives of
the school were seeking a facili-

ty in Pensacola.
"Camp Timpoochee seemed
like a good fit for everyone con-
cerned," Christenberry said.
"Most of the camp's 4-H activi-
ties take place during the sum-
mer, so it's available for other
uses during the rest of the year."
Arrington said Wuerffel met
with UF extension administra-
tors, and a contract is being
Numerous other users had
already booked the camp,
Arrington said, but under the cir-
cumstances they were willing to
make new plans, and UF per-
sonnel are working with them to
find suitable alternate facilities.
The UF extension service is
working with Desire Street Acad-
emy to ensure the camp's facili-
ties meet the school's needs.
Located on about 35 acres,
the camp can house 140 people
and includes cabins, conference
rooms, a dining hall and an audi-
torium, Arrington said. Some
additional features already locat-
ed at Camp Timpoochee will
provide new opportunities for
the students, including a beach,
outdoor team-building course
and a marine laboratory.
Desire Street Academy teach-
ers and administrators will
resume their duties when the
school reopens and are current-
ly assisting with preparations at
Camp Timpoochee, he said. The
school will also provide person-
nel to supervise the students and
handle their day-to-day needs.
Marilyn Norman, UF assistant
dean for 4-H youth development
programs, said UF extension
agents will help the students

from the New Orleans academy
launch their own 4-H clubs.
"With its emphasis on leader-
ship, citizenship and life skills, 4-
H can add a new dimension to
the lives of these young men,"
she said. "The 4-H activities will
enhance the learning environ-
ment for these youth, and we
can't wait to get started."
Mo Leverett, executive direc-
tor of the school's parent organi-
zation, Desire Street Ministries,
co-founded the New Orleans
academy in 2002. He said the
boys are looking forward to
reuniting with their classmates,
and that will be an important
step for them in recovering from
Hurricane Katrina. About 60 per-
cent of Desire Street Academy's
190 students have been located
since the hurricane struck New
Orleans, Leverett said. Depend-
ing on their circumstances, par-
ents of the students going to
Camp Timpoochee may relocate
to Niceville or remain in other
Desire Street Academy will
eventually return to New
Orleans, but specific plans have
not been made, said Wuerffel, a
former UF football quarterback
who led the Gators to a national
championship in 1996.
"We will overcome the chal-
lenges we face, and it will make
our future accomplishments
that much sweeter," he said.
"Our top priority right now is
getting things back on track for
our students. We are deeply
thankful to UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences for
offering us a place to make that

What's chewing my oak tree?

As if our local trees have not
had enough damage from last
year's storms, several office vis-
itors have recently asked for
help in getting rid of a critter
that seems to be eating up
many oak trees. While the
Pinkstriped Oakworm is not a
new pest to our area, it seems
to have captured the attention
of several homeowners, and is
a good subject for this week's
lawn and garden article.
According to UF Entomolo-
gist John Foltz, there are sever-
al caterpillars that can chew off
the leaves on local oak trees.
When caterpillars are numer-
ous, they can quickly strip trees
of their foliage. Most serious
outbreaks occur in late sum-
mer to fall. While oak trees in
forests generally survive these
invasions, greater damage is
noted in urban areas, where
leaves become ragged or dis-
appear, and the bugs and their
waste material is a nuisance.
The Pinkstriped Oakworm
(Anisota virginiensis) can be
found throughout the eastern
U.S. and up into Canada. In
Florida, there are two other
related species of these oak-
eating silk moth caterpillars
that differ in color. The caterpil-
lars now seen in local areas are
greenish brown with four pink
stripes running the length of
the body. Their heads are fairly
large and green in color. These
oakworms can grow to about
two inches long, and have a
pair of long, curved black
During cooler months, the
oakworms rest in the soil as
dark brown pupa. The adult
moths emerge in late spring.
They appear brownish red with
a purplish tint on the front
wings with a small white dot.

Moths measure 2-3 inches
from head to the tip, and the
wings are usually folded back
over the body. Once they mate,
the female lays egg clusters
under the leaves, and the little
critters begin to chew up leaves
for 5-6 weeks.
Oakworm populations can
become large enough to com-
pletely strip trees. Most oaks
can handle one such defolia-
tion with little impact on their
health. However, repeated
defoliations will weaken the
trees and lead to infestation by
secondary pests and diseases.
Trees that have been stressed
by flooding or wind are more
likely to suffer from oakworm
Here are some steps for pro-
moting tree vigor and reducing
oakworm insect populations:
Provide appropriate water
and nutrients to the tree
throughout the growing sea-
son. Avoid over or under appli-
cations of both irrigation and
fertilizers, which may stress the
tree and make it more attrac-
tive to caterpillars.
Watch for the moths and
look for clusters of small yel-
low bumps under the leaves.
Remove these eggs and the
young colonies of worms from
the lower branches. Trim them
off, smash them, or bag them
with household waste disposal
-not yard trash. -
If large numbers of cater-
pillars are too high for hand
removal, contact a pest control
operator for application of an
appropriate insecticide.
Use of insecticides contain-
ing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)
can reduce caterpillar popula-
tions with little impact to other
beneficial insects. Other chem-
ical insecticides can also be

used, but many of these home-
owner products can kill the
good with the bad, so careful
application is imperative. Be
sure to always read and follow
all label directions when using
any pesticide.
The timing of sprays is also
important. Smaller caterpillars
are easier to manage than larg-
er caterpillars, so quick action
after initial identification will
reduce leaf loss. And, a second
applicationof insecticide with-
in a month of the first outbreak
may help reduce the second
generation of these hungry
Larger trees can probably
cope with some leaf loss, how-
ever, trees that are stressed and
smaller, younger trees are better
candidates for insecticidal treat-
ments. If larger trees are to be
sprayed, consider that a
licensed pest control operator
has the power equipment need-
ed to reach to tops of tall trees.
As with any pest control
program, identification of the
pest is the first step. If you sus-
pect that oakworms are taking
your oaks out to lunch (and
dinner) place a few live, un-
smashed worms into a bag or
other container and bring them
to our office for positive ID.
Don't leave them sitting on
your dashboard in the sun, as
cooked caterpillars are a bit
more difficult to identify than
fresh ones.
Those with digital cameras
that can get up close and per-
sonal can send us a photo of
your offending bug. We will be
happy to identify them for you
- and if we can't, we can send
them on to other University of
Florida faculty that will be able
to tell us what's bugging your
oak trees.

Back-to-school tip for parents: Get involved now

BURBANK, Calif. Parents,
fall means getting your children
committed to their studies, but it's
also the ideal time for you to
make commitments to your
child's school.
Studies show that parental
involvement in a child's school
and learning is key to a child's
success, and contributes to fewer
behavioral problems, better per-
formance in school and a greater
chance of high school graduation.
"Education is like a puzzle,
and the parents are such an
important piece of that puzzle,"
said Dianna Bartles, a fifth-grade
teacher in Ohio and a Disney
Teacher Award Honoree. "You
can always tell when a parent is
taking an interest in a child's
assignments and talking to the
child about what is going on at
school. Even very shy students
like to say, 'My mom said' or 'My
dad told me.' Students carry
words from their parents as pre-
cious gems to be used in class dis-
cussion and conversations."
Parents who are involved with
their schools can better monitor

classroom activities and coordi-
nate their efforts with teachers.
And research suggests that the
teachers of students with highly
involved parents tend to give
greater attention to those stu-
dents, and to identify learning
problems at an earlier age.
"Lack of parent involvement in
reading or helping with home-
work puts children at a disadvan-
tage," said Dara Feldman, a
kindergarten teacher in Maryland
named the Outstanding Elemen-
tary School Teacher of the Year by
the Disney Teacher Awards.
"Often parents of young children
don't know how important it is to
read and talk to their children. It's
not that they are bad parents, they
just don't know how important
that is to their child's language
development. Those kids come to
school less prepared."
Here are a number of sugges-
tions from top educators for ways
parents can get involved in their
children's learning:
Volunteer-teachers are always
in need of chaperones, field trip
drivers, guest speakers and even

classroom assistants. Every par-
ent has a talent they can use to
help the class learn.
"I deliberately poll the parents
to see what level of involvement
they can provide," said David
Vixie, a middle school teacher in *
California and the 2005 Disney
Teacher of the Year. "Can they
drive, build, make phone calls,
provide supplies for simulations
or field trips, be presenters on top-
ics of curriculum? I invite them to
Keep in contact with the
teacher-parents who stay
informed by talking regularly with
teachers who have children who
excel in class and have fewer dis-
cipline problems, says Disney
Honoree Roberta Patterson of
California. Parent-teacher confer-
ences and PTA meetings are the
traditional ways to keep in con-
tact, but regular e-mail conversa-
tion is a convenient and effective
way to keep in touch.
Do homework together -
working together is a great way to
make sure a child is learning and
a chance to spend some time

together. Parents shouldn't be
intimidated if an older child is
learning something they don't
understand they can have the
child teach it to them. Several Dis-
ney Honorees say that having stu-
dents teach a difficult concept is
one of the best ways for them to
learn it themselves.
Model behaviors if parents
want children to value reading
and studying, they should not
only read to their young children,
but let their older children see
them reading and learning about
new things.
"You don't have to be a perfect
parent, but children are like clay,
molded by the people around
them," said Bartles. "A child who
sees a parent reading a book and
laughing aloud will learn that
reading can be entertaining. A
child who sees a parent reading
the newspaper and commenting
on articles will see that reading
can be informative. Give me a
parent who keeps a journal, and
I'll show you a student with a
built-in desire to write."
Attend meetings and events-In

addition to regular parent-teacher 40 percent of those who respond-
and PTA meetings, many schools ed indicated that more parental

Foley encouraged by disaster

recovery act passage in senate

Foley: This is a
good start but
problems exist
gressman Mark Foley (FL-16) said
he was encouraged by the Senate
Committee passage of a modified
version of the Disaster Recovery
Act of 2005 which he introduced
with Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)
in April. The legislation will make
changes to the disaster recovery
efforts of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA).
The bill was a direct result of the
experiences of millions of Floridi-
ans as they rebuilt in the wake of
the nation's most costly series of
storms that hit the state last sum-
"The victims of Katrina and
possibly Rita can be encouraged
by the progress of this bill. We

learned many lessons after four
hurricanes in Florida. We also
overcame many obstacles fed-
eral bureaucracy shouldn't have
been one of them," said Foley,
whose district suffered direct hits
from three hurricanes in 2004.
"This legislation reflects many of
the lessons we learned last sum-
mer and will offer solutions for
the headaches we hope to pre-
vent for the victims of Katrina.
"This is a good start, but these
problems are not confined to
only the storms of 2005. I hope
we can make these changes per-
manent to prevent the inevitable
headaches from the inevitable
hurricanes to come. We have to
stop taking one-year approaches
to structural problems.
"Too many of Florida's resi-
dents and communities are still
waiting eight months later to
receive reimbursement from
FEMA for debris clean up and

expenses," said Sen. Martinez.
"And we have too many Florida
residents that are living in tempo-
rary shelters and communities on
the verge of bankruptcy because
of debt incurred in order to
remove tons of debris from their
streets and homes. We must do
better than this."
Foley's Disaster Recovery Act
has three major components:
Requires FEMA to pay locali-
ties up to 50 percent of eligible
Public Assistance (PA) monies no
later than 60 days after an eligible
claim is filed.
Requires FEMA to reim-
burse localities for the clearing
and removal of debris on all
emergency access roads (those
that require access by emergency
personnel during natural disas-
Makes debris removal from
private lands an eligible claim for
federal assistance.

Visit Florida achieves travel first

with innovative down towns

FLORIDA, the state's official
source for travel planning, in part-.
.nership with the Florida Depart-
ment of State and the Florida
Redevelopment Association, is,
hosting the inaugural Down-
towns & Small Towns Forum,
Oct. 13-15. The two and half day
program will be based in Delray
Beach, and will have additional
sessions in Fort Lauderdale and
West Palm Beach.
This innovative gathering of
Florida tourism industry leaders
and other non-traditional tourism
partners such as arts and cultural
organizations, downtown devel-
opment authorities, community
redevelopment agencies, Main
Street programs, city/county
planners, etc. is designed to pro-
vide actionable, tangible tools to
effectively promote Florida's
downtown and small towns
through the use of models and

success stories from around the
Sunshine State.
"By providing this innovative
and educational Forum, we are
leveraging the great appeal of our
cultural heritage assets, which
are concentrated in the state's
downtown and small towns,
while supporting the economic
development of these areas." said
Bud Nocera, president and chief
executive officer of VISIT FLORI-
Forum speakers include Flori-
da Secretary of State, Glenda E.
Hood and many Florida Mayors.
Session topics include design,
planning and transportation;
leadership; arts and cultural
assets; tourism marketing; enter-
tainment and events; multi-cul-
tural diversity; preservation and
conservation; cleanliness and
safety, and provide hands-on
knowledge and interaction with
local experts.

The forum is an extension of
last year's successful Downtowns
& Small Towns multi-year adver-
tising program, which addressed
the demand for cultural heritage
travel by focusing on the charm,
vibrancy and revitalization of the
Sunshine State's cities and towns.
The year-old Downtowns &
Small Towns program marks the
first time a state organization has
bundled its downtown and small
town tourism experiences under
one development and marketing
umbrella for the entire state.
"VISIT Florida's Downtowns
& Small Towns program is in
response to consumer travel pref-
erences for authenticity, regional
culture- and mingling with the
locals," said Kerri Post, vice presi-
dent of new product develop-
ment for VISIT FLORIDA, who
helped- craft the program.
"Downtowns are the heart and
soul of cities."
