Response to citizen concern


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY The Glades
participated in a groundbreaking
ceremony at the site of the future
Lake Region Water Treatment
Plant recently, with local leaders
saying they looked forward to the
eventual opening of the plant.
Since then several cities have
received questions regarding the
safety of placing the facility atba site
previously thought to have been
contaminated by pollutants.
The cities of Belle Glade and


"I am removing myself from this board. I am
overwhelmed by the stupidity in this room."
J.P. Sasser,
Pahokee Mayor


South Bay responded to the issue,
asking whether a test.had cleared
,the site of the'concerns.
At a tri-cities meeting held.in
South Bay, commissioners asked
for documentation prior to mov-
ing further with the project. Frus-
trated that such questions would


arise so late in the process, he later
said, Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser
walked out on the neighboring
cities at the meeting.
County representatives have
since stepped forward to provide
answers and ensure the commu-
nity that the site is indeed safe and


that no contamination dangers
exist.
Years ago, when the school dis-
trict looked at the possibility of
locating the site of the future
Glades Central High School, the
site at Hooker Highway just across

from where West Tech and GCI
are now located, was one of the
sites proposed.
The public at that time voiced
concerns regarding the possibility
that the site was contaminated
and was not a proper location to
site the new school. The district


ultimately decided on construct-
ing the new school at Pioneer
Park.
With one of the main facilities
of the new regional water treat-
ment plant being located at the
site though the wells contain-
ing the water will be located off-
site the concerns began again.
Both South Bay and Belle Glade
said they had received concerns
regarding the site, with communi-
ty members once again worried.

Cops bust




car theft ring


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

PAHOKEE After weeks
of investigative work, the
Pahokee Police Department,
with the direct cooperation of
the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office, busted a suspect-
ed car theft ring that operated
in the area, with possible
accomplices throughout other
municipalities in Florida.
Police say the four suspects
arrested in connection with
the case were caught red-
handed, in the process of
stripping down a car to pre-
vent police from identifying
the vehicle and preparing it to
be sold.
The police department
received an anonymous tip
that the four suspects they had
been tracking were at a loca-
tion on Joe Louis Avenue in
Pahokee and were in posses-


sion of a stolen vehicle.
Corporal Peters, who was
assigned to the case and had
followed the suspects,
received the notification and
alerted the Palm Beach Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office, who has
jurisdiction over the area
located inside the county.
The law enforcement offi-
cials responded quickly, arriv-
ing at the site behind an aban-
doned house. Four suspects
were apprehended that day,
Lawrence Williams, 25, Leroy
Love, 23, Terrance Lee John-
son, 29, and Lee Jones, 30, all
ofPahokee.
The four were apparently
charged with dealing in stolen
property, caught in the
process of removing items
from the car to sell off, offi-
cials said.

Cities to rotate



water board



appointment


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

SOUTH BAY At a meeting
of the tri-cities recently, the area
communities decided to
explore the possibility of pro-
viding a revolving appointment
to the water utilities board that
will oversee the Lake Region
Water Treatment Plant.
Previously, the three cities
were asked by the county to
select one appointment to rep-
resent the Glades on the Palm
Beach County Water Utilities
Advisory Board relating to the
treatment plant and serve a
three-year term, in anticipation


of the treatment plant moving
forward in its construction and
with an anticipated opening
two years from today.
The plant remains one of
the top priorities of the three
cities Belle Glade, South Bay
and Pahokee with citizens
anxiously waiting for the plant
to come on-line with clean,
safe drinking water.
Mayor Steve Wilson of Belle
Glade, who had been recom-
mended to serve on the board
by his fellow commissioners
from the city of Belle Glade,

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

PAHOKEE It was a small
but special ceremony, indica-
tive of the big things the staff in
the future would like to accom-
plish.
Last week, the Mentor Pro-
gram in Pahokee congratulated
its finest participants, both stu-
dents and adults who con-
tribute their time to forming
special bonds with area chil-
dren.
According to the staff behind
the project, the mentors have
selflessly dedicated themselves
to working with the young chil-
dren, not only as tutors, but as
friends with a listening ear and a
stake in the development of the
growing children.
Both the children and their
mentors came out to Pahokee
Middle/Senior High last week to
celebrate the strides made in
the program the Mentor Pro-
gram that operates out of the
Beacon Center at Pahokee Ele-
mentary.
Cynthia McMillan, program
coordinator, and Tiny McNutt,
program director, were on-
hand to recognize the 25 men-
tors now in the program. It was
an opportunity to thank those


who are contributing to the suc-
cess of the worthwhile effort.
One of the biggest support-
ers of the program is the Paho-
kee Fire Department. Quite
often, you'll see at least a few of
them actively working at the
program. Three firefighters
have joined the ranks of men-
tors, providing a number of
quality hours to the program
every week.
Donald How is one of those
volunteers his time.
"I like dealing with kids,"
said Firefighter How. "It's great.
He's always excited when I pick
him up," Mr. How said of the
child he mentors.
According to Mr. How, their
volunteer work is made possi-
ble through Fire Chief Gary Bur-
roughs, who supports his fire-
fighters giving back to the
community by allowing them
to participate in worthy causes
like this one while on duty.
But adults aren't the only
ones offering their support.
Ms. McNutt said the students
have admirably been among
the most dedicated of the men-
tors. While the program counts
on the participation of about six
adults, the rest of the 25 men-
tors are all students.


The program works closely
with the Pahokee Middle/Senior
High School in identifying pos-
sible mentors who would like
to take part in the program.
Mentors are asked to provide a
referral by a parent, teacher and
guidance counselor to join the
program, and most kids are
exemplary students, according
to Ms. McNutt.
Last week at the awards cer-
emony, the program thanked
Teresita Portalatin, an 11th grad-
er who has been with the pro-
gram from almost its inception.
Staff said Teresita is one of the
most dedicated mentors in the
program.
"It's real interesting," Teresi-
ta said of the volunteer work
she does, adding that some of
the kids she mentors have
grown from shy children to
expressing how they feel in an
open manner, having built a
trust in her.
Indeed, Ms. McNutt said, the
program is thankful to everyone
who donates their time and
encourages community mem-
bers to join.
Before they are mentors, vol-
unteers must undergo a strict

Alzheimer's opens new facility


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

PAHOKEE The
Alzheimer's Community Care
(ACC) organization last week
unveiled its recently complet-
ed building in Pahokee to a
crowd of local leaders and rep-
resentatives.
The organization, which is
based in West Palm Beach,
with a presence in the Glades
for years, made public its hope
that the new building will con-
tinue to offer the quality care it
is known for providing in the
area. It welcomed the commu-
nity to its official ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony held last week
at the site of the new building.
Up until recently, ACC has
had to make use of a city-pro-
vided facility at the old high


school cafeteria in which to
provide care for numerous
patients afflicted with
Alzheimer's and other demen-
tia-related disorders.
Following a donation of
land by the Pahokee Woman's
Club, and a fundraising cam-
paign, the organization has
successfully covered the cost
of construction on the build-
ing. A committee made up of
several locals took quickly to
the task and began the
fundraising to help pay for the
new site. Additionally, a
$250,000 appropriation from
Palm Beach County toward
the project, facilitated by
County Commissioner Tony
Masilotti, kick-started the
effort.
Ada Conley Bush, a mem-


ber of the woman's club said
that, faced by dwindling mem-
bership, the club decided it
was best to donate the build-
ing, as well as the property it
was located on. After some
consideration, they agreed to
offer the- property free of
charge to Alzheimer's Com-
municate Care.
"It has always been our
dream to use the property for
something that would better
our community," said Ms.
Bush at the ribbon-cutting cer-
emony, which took place Sept.
28. "We are so happy and so
proud."
The new site boasts an
attractive exterior that, accord-
ing to Executive Director Mary

INI/Jose Zaragoza

The gifts that I have been offered


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph, D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I received a notification that I
had won a prize; a car, two
round trip airline tickets, a wide
screen color television or cash.
The certificate guaranteeing that
I had won came with a tele-
phone number, which I was to
call. The last time I received
such a certificate (it was for a
new Pontiac) I called them as
requested collect.
I figured that if they could
afford to give me a new Pontiac,
surely they could afford my tele-
phone call to claim the prize.
What seemed to be a young per-
son answered when the opera-
tor told them they had a collect
call. The person had to check
with someone, apparently,
because there was a delay and
some whispering, it seems my
collect call caught them off
guard. Then the young lady told
the operator that they did not
receive collect calls. I wasn't sur-
prised. I had my doubts about
the offer in the first place. I


believe the adage that goes. "If it
sounds to be too good to be
true, it probably is."
They reminded me of some
people in the Bible. There is a
parable in Matthew's gospel
about a landowner who planted
a vineyard and left it in the care
of some tenants. He sent his ser-
vants to collect the rent due to
him. They were .beaten and one
was killed. He sent others but
they were treated the same way.
Finally, the landowner sent his
son, saying, "They will respect
my son." But no, the son is killed
as well. (Matthew 21:33-43)
They do it in hopes of having
the vineyard to themselves even
though it is not theirs. Unscrupu-
lous "giveaway" programs also
do so in hopes of getting some-
thing not rightfully theirs -
requesting money for the pay-
ment of "taxes" or "delivery
fees" or some other charge that
extracts money from persons on
the false hope of a windfall that
is never really there to be gained.
The Biblical parable asks,
"When the owner of the vine-
yard comes, what will he do to


those tenants?" Those who
were listening to Jesus tell him
that they will come to a miser-
able end. I keep getting offers to
involve myself in literally mil-
lions because someone in some
part of Africa has died an
untimely death and no heirs can
be located. The message comes
almost daily on my computer
about how someone is a repre-
sentative or family member of
their dear deceased who Wanted
his money to go to a worthy
cause and, (guess what!),
they've selected me!
Figuring it may be of interest
to the Fraud Department of my
Internet server, I forward it and
received a polite thank-you note.
I hope enough others will do
likewise so they can get back to
the host and say, "cut it out!" In
reality, it would be very simple
- if someone has something for
me, just enclose the check in an
envelope and mail it. I will take it
from there.
I also get telephone calls
about special offers, fantastic
deals, bargains that will never be
offered again and once- in -a life-


time opportunities. I tell them to
mail me the information and I
will look at it. Sometimes I
receive information and then
reflect on it. Other times, noth-
ing is coming and I figure it is
just as well.
Then, once in a blue moon,
there comes a really free gift.
Sometimes it is a small sample
or token, sometimes something
needed, sometimes something I
can pass on to someone else.
The gift is really a gift and the
meaning of the giver is clear. I
am reminded that my vocation is
to give away what I have -
that's the purpose of the min-
istry, we give freely and uncondi-
tionally as we have relieved;
that's a joy and a privilege and a
blessing. There is a passage in
Romans that talks about the dif-
ference between real giving and
evil; how real giving is uncondi-
tional, free, without expecting in
return. That's God giving and
that is what we can do to help
others; and what fills our hearts
whether we're the giver or
receiver too.

Former graduate


returning home


When Bill Fisackerly, IV grad-
uated from Clewiston High
School in 1981, even though
Bill's father was the pastor of
First United Methodist Church of
Clewiston,
becoming a
preacher
was the fur-
thest thing
from his
mind, but
that is exactly
what he
became. If
you attended Bill
Clewiston Fisackerly
High in the
late 70s and early 80s you may
know this former Clewiston
Tiger as Bill Fisackerly.
But even if you were not one
of his fellow students you may
know Bill but by a different
name. In the early 80s he started
a Christian rock program on
Sunday mornings on WAFC-FM.
106.3, but since "Fisackerly" is
such a mouthful and hard to
understand over the air waves
he chose the "ar name" of "Alan
Williams" using hisfirst name as
his last and his middle name for
his first.
While Bill was attending high
school. in Clewiston, he also
worked at the Clewiston News,
first in the darkroom and pho-
tography department, then later
on the presses and in delivery.
After high school, he attended
Florida Southern College where
he initially majored in Broad-
casting with the intention of
becoming a Christian disc jock-
ey after completing his*-bache-
lor's degree.
It was part way through his
undergraduate program, he felt
the call to ministry and switched
to a double major of Broadcast-
ing and Religion. After he gradu-


ated.from Florida Southern in
1984, he married Kim Butcher
from Miami, and the newlyweds
moved to Atlanta where he
earned a Master of Divinity
degree from Candler School of
Theology at Emory University.
Bill and Kim have three children
Bethany, Allyson, and Wil
(William A. Fisackerly the V).
Bill has served as a pastor for the
United Methodist Church in Del-
tona, Sopchoppy, and Ochlock-
onee Bay Florida.
In 1995, Bill was appointed
to Estero United Methodist
Church in Estero Florida and has
been their senior pastor ever
since moving to Estero. Since
moving to Estero Bill has helped
four different members of that
congregation to discover and
answer their own calls to min-
istry one of whom is Pastor
Thom Street who serves as the
pastor of First United Methodist
Church of Moore Haven.
Reverend Bill and Pastor
Thorn have decided to switch
pulpits for one Sunday so this
Sunday, Oct. 9 Reverend Bill will
be preaching at First United
Methodist Church of Moore
Haven and Pastor Thom will
travel to Estero to fill the pulpit
there.
Services at First United
Methodist Church of Moore
Haven are at 10 a.m. and the
church is located at 300 Avenue
L. and Third Street in Moore
Haven. There will be a potluck
lunch and fellowship time after
services and whether you went
to school with Bill, knew him
from church, or heard him on
the radio and would like to hear
him preach on Sunday you are
welcome to be a part of worship
and the fellowship time after
services.


From the Executive Editor


Taxpayers find rollback rate confusing


By Katrina Elsken
Executive Editor
It's budget time the time of
year when city, county and region-
al governments finalize the mill-
age rate for the new fiscal year.
Then, in accordance with state
law, they advertise their increase
as compared to the "rollback"
rate.
These advertisements tend to
be confusing to the average tax-
payer, whose only experience
with "rollback" often has to do
with television commercials for
department stores.
The government version of
rollback does not mean you get a
discount.
The rollback rate is based on
the amount that would have to be
collected in taxes to fund the pre-
vious year's budget, based on the
current property values.
However, local governments
are not funding last year's budget
- they are funding this year's
budget. And budgets do tend to
increase each year in response to
higher prices for electricity,
increases in salaries, increases in
fuel costs, etc.
So the rollback rate means they
look at the current property value
assessments, and then figure out
what they would have to collect in
millage to fund the 2004/2005
budget. Then they advertise the
2005/06 millage as an increase or
decrease over this "rollback" rate.
Millage is a term used to
describe ad valorem or property
taxes. One mill equals $1 in tax for
every $1,000 of property value.
'The "rollback rate" informa-
tion is not particularly useful to
most taxpayers and in some cases
it can be downright confusing and
misleading. *


For the homeowner, there are
two ways that property taxes can
increase. One way is if local gov-
ernment raises the millage rate, so
the homeowner is paying more
taxes per $1,000 of property value.
The other way taxes can
increase is if the assessed taxable
property value is increased. Sky-
rocketing prices for home sales in
your neighborhood can mean
your property value can increase,
even though you did not make any
improvements.
.Advertising the rollback rate
does not really give the homeown-
er enough information to deter-
mine if their taxes are going up
and if so, exactly what is happen-
ing to cause their tax bill to
increase.
It is possible for tax millage to
increase and be advertised as a
decrease over the rollback. It is
possible for tax millage to
decrease and be advertised as an
increase over the rollback.
For example, imagine City A
has total property values of $10
million. In 2004 they levy 8 mills,
which brings in $80,000. A large
factory is built, increasing total
property values to $15 million. So
the city officials set the tax rate at 6
mills, which brings in $90,000.
The rollback rate would be the
amount of millage it would take to
raise $80,000 based on property
values of $15 million 5.33 mills.
So a tax rate of 6 mills would be
advertised as an 11-percent
increase over the rollback rate,
even though the actual millage
rate decreased.
For another example, consider
City B. In 2004 the mythical City B
had total property values of $100
million, and levied 5 mills in taxes,
to bring in $500,000. But in 2005,
the city's widget plant and several


surrounding businesses burned to
the ground, cutting taxable prop-
erty values to $50 million. To make
ends meet, the city council votes
to double the tax rate to 10 mills to
bring in $500,000 in ad valorem
taxes. This means the homeown-
ers will see their tax millage dou-
ble. However, because total prop-
erty values decreased, the rollback
rate comparison shows this as a
zero-percent increase.
How can you tell what the gov-
ernment budgets will mean to
your tax bill? Find out the current
taxable property value of your
property. In many counties, you
can do this online. If you disagree
with the amount the property
appraiser has assigned to your
property, you have the right to
appeal to the adjustment board
that meets once a year to review
such cases.
Once you know the taxable
property value, determine if you
qualify for homestead exemption.
To qualify you must own the


home, it must be your primary
residence and you must be a legal
resident of Florida (voter registra-
tion is one way to confirm this). If
you qualify for homestead exemp-
tion, you do not pay taxes on the
first $25,000 of property value.
To find out how much your tax
bill will be, divide your taxable
property value by 1,000 and multi-
ply by the millage rate. For exam-
ple, if your home is valued at
$125,000, and the city tax rate is
set at 10 mills, with the homestead
exemption, you would pay $ 10 for
every $1,000 of property value.
This would mean you would pay
$1,000 in city taxes.
Don't forget that there are
many taxing agencies that include
your area and you have to pay
property taxes to each one. You
may be charged for city, county,
school board, water manage-
ment, mosquito-control district
and drainage district taxes. Each
taxing authority will set its own
millage.

Dinner Island dove season postponed


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) postponed Dove Season
on Dinner Island Ranch and
Okaloacoochee (OK) Slough
Wildlife Management Areas
(WMAs), according to hunting
and game managers. Both dove
fields are closed for the first
hunt, Saturday, Oct. 1, to comply
with federal baiting laws, but at
this time only Dinner Island
Ranch WMA is closed for the
second hunt, Saturday, Oct. 8.
Signs are posted on these areas
to remind hunters of this post-
ponement.
Weather and wet conditions
delayed the planting of these
fields, and some areas needed
replanting. This replanting
spawned concerns about bait-
ing, which forced postponement
to comply with federal baiting
laws. FWC area biologists will
monitor both Dinner Island and
OK Slough WMAs and reopen
them as conditions allow.
The dove permits are free
daily quota permits and refunds
aren't necessary.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
regulations state that an area is
considered to be baited for 10
days after removal of the bait. It
is unlawful to take or attempt to
take migratory game birds by
the aid of baiting, which


includes placing, exposing,
depositing, distributing or scat-
tering salt, grain or other feed


that could lure birds to, on
over an area or hunting on
over any baited area.

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 httpV//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.

BLINDERS OFF: This is in response to the caller who called prais-
ing Mayor J.P. Sasser for all the great things that Mayor Sasser has
done. Show me one thing he's done. All I can see he's done, is cause
turmoil, trouble among the troops in the city of Pahokee, I see no
growth. There may be a couple of restaurants coming up, but two
restaurants are not going to keep the city going. Mr. J.P. Sasser sup-
porter, you need to take the blinders off and get real. It's nothing
doing nothing. The only way it is going to change is when we get a
new mayor in March.

DRINKING AND DRIVING: Show me a person who drinks and I
will most likely show you a person who drinks and drives. After a
few drinks, most of us think we can drive better. Because of pressure
brought on by Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, and the advent of cell
telephones in almost every car, the chances of getting away with
drunk driving is practically zero. Remember, even worse than a DUI
is a charge of vehicular manslaughter. Take heed.

NOT SO PERFECT WORLD: In a perfect world, all residents in the
path of a hurricane who don't have transportation or other
resources to evacuate, could be taken out by residents who do have
these resources. Every vehicle could be filled to its legal capacity. In
the real world, however, the latter group would be at the mercy of
the bad guys who would inevitably be included in the other group.
Most of them would have several hundred dollars in cash and every-
body would know it. Of course, it could be the other way around.

FIRING THE WRONG PEOPLE: I'm calling about the firing of the
lady at the Belle Glade Golf Course. I think the city is making a big
mistake in firing this lady. The personnel that comes in on her days
off, I am a golfer and I golf there constantly, the people they should
have fired, they are keeping. The lady that they got there that come
from the Belle Glade Marina does not know from A-Z how to work
the computer, how to count money, or how to greet the people. And
the lady that they have fired was courteous, kind, and very efficient.
The city ought to get their act together and quit firing these people
that are intelligent enough to know how to run the business for the
city.

WHAT OPEN CONTAINERS?: This message pertains to open
containers laws. I believe we have a no open container law in South
Bay, Belle Glade, etc. What good is it? You have people sitting out in
the open on public property drinking all day under the trees right
next to the church and union hall in South Bay. You also have city
commissioners that sit there and drink also. The law only applies to
certain people, I guess. Give me a comment.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. I would be hard pressed to
come up with a comment for your Speak Out, but here goes. Hav-
ing worked back and forth between lake-area communities for sev-
eral years, I know from experience that daytime drinking in public
occurs, but have noticed a sharp decline in certain areas. I do not
know where you are referencing, but suggest you contact the local
authorities if you observe drinking in public places.

WHERE'S THE WATER?: We never did get an answer as to where
the water that we buy out of the windmill stations is coming from.
How can so many people get so many gallons of water out of there
each day without it being empty. Is it brought in everyday? Or is the
city of Belle Glade supplying this water?

WE NEED BETTER POLICING: I'm calling because I saw guys in
Pahokee sitting all out there in the road. Cars couldn't pass by at 4
a.m. The police was sitting right there at the parking lot, talking to a
guy on a bicycle, but didn't do nothing like he was supposed to
about the law. Here in Pahokee, our police department turns a deaf
ear on those people stopping cars on the road. They will not move.
The police go the other way. I see a lot of them at the post office park
in the handicap place. They go down there at (local grocery store)
and park in the handicap. Nothing is being done about that. I
thought the police department is supposed to check everybody in
this town? But it's just a certain portion of the people in this town.

NO PROTECTION IN BELLE GLADE: Why do we not have any
more officers coming in? Why doesn't the commissioner, or whoev-
er it is, the head of Belle Glade, do something about getting some
more officers in here or why not just let the sheriff's office take over?
We need security in Belle Glade. We need to be protected. The offi-
cers that are there are so strung out all over the place. Three officers
in the day, three officers in the evening is not sufficient enough to
control everything that goes on in Belle Glade. They cannot be in
three or four places at one time. We need some help. City of Belle
Glade, let's stand up. Taxpayers, let's stand up. We have to do some-
thing to get our homes, our businesses protection.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I'm a bit con-
cerned with the latest news about
some virus that is spreading from
horses to dogs. From what I heard,
some dogs have even died as a
result. How serious is this virus?
What is it? Do dog owner's in gen-
eral have to be concerned? Thanks
Doc, Myron and Elhyl Moses from
Lake Worth.
A: Dear Myron and Ethyl. I've
been getting a lot of calls and ques-
tions about this virus, and it seems
like many people are getting a bit
scared and confused. It is very
important to know the truth behind
this virus, so instead of including a
second question, we're going to
dedicate this week's column to
"Influenza Virus Strain H3N8".
This virus is basically a flu type
of virus causing upper respiratory
disease. Influenza strain H3N8 is a
horse flu virus that is showing simi-
larities to another virus, that has
caused canine deaths in several
Florida greyhound racetrack facili-
ties. Recent study at the University
of Florida has shown close similari-
ties between these horse and dog
viruses, so that it is suspected that
the virus has jumped species! This
jump is very rare it usually takes
many strains of mutation for an
influenza virus to spread this way.
Influenza is not something
which dogs commonly get, but it
has been seen in horses for
decades. Dogs get kennel cough or
bordetella instead. The greyhounds
affected presented initially with
kennel cough signs, but they just
got sicker, and had very high infec-
tion counts in their white blood
cells.
These outbreaks in the grey-
hound kennel community actually
started in 1999, and although there
have been recent attacks, it does
not play a concern for the dog


Oakwood Center



assumes charge


owner in general. There has been
testing in the general canine popu-
lation where 97 percent have
shown antibody resistance to this
flu. So, that means that dogs have
been exposed to it, and have not
become ill. It could be that grey-
hounds may be more susceptible
due to poor genetic variation due to
inbreeding, and a poor immune
system.
Also there is no evidence to sug-
gest that it may spread to humans.
It is being watched closely by the
CDC, as historically a few other
viruses that have jumped species
have had some tragic conse-
quences. For example: Avian flu,
SARS, and West Nile virus. These
three have all jumped species to
humans.
I know there have been many
rumors and unconfirmed Internet
tales of massive dog die-offs -
don't believe everything you hear!
Get the facts! Hope that helps, take
care, Doc Savvy.

Glades Academy pitches in
The students at Glades Academy watched with great
interest and care as the events of Hurricane Katrina and
its aftermath devastated all who lived on the Gulf Coast.
They were aware of the need for help to many people
whose lives would never be the same, so with the help of
teacher, Ms. Dena Phelps and the students at Glades
Academy they worked very hard to raise money for the
victims. Students have the opportunity to buy a treat
from'a snack bar, at the end of the day and all proceeds
for the month of September are being donated to the Red
Cross. Dr Don Zumpano, school principal, and all the
staff at Glades Academy would like to express our appre-
ciation to Ms. Dena Phelps and students who have
worked so hard to aid Katrina victims. Your humanity
shows. Pictured: Fourth graders Jessica Reynoso and

Speak Out Extra

NO APOLOGY FOR YOU, NEXTI: This for the person who called
in about the apology regarding the Friday night game at Glades Cen-
tral. If you were a professional player, you would have tried to score
too. An apology is not going to be made. You didn't apologize when
you cut the lights off on Pahokee. So, chalk it up as a loss and have a
blessed day.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. To be fair, a Clewiston coach
did call Speak Out to offer an explanation of what happened that
night.

City given grant



for plant removal


BELLE GLADE The city of
Belle Glade received a grant from
Palm Beach County Environmen-
tal Resources in the amount of
$35,250 to remove exotic plants
from Torry Island.
Removal methods included
digging exotic plants out of the
ground with heavy machinery
and applying an aquatically
approved and Environmental Pro-
tection Agency registered herbi-
cide to the leaves of the plants.
The project was a huge success
for Torry Island.


City of Belle Glade wishes to
invite the public to come and
experience the Everglades on
Torry Island.
Directions: Take Southern
Blvd., and head west for about 40
miles to SR 715 and turn left to
West Canal Street North (also
called 717N). Make right turn and
travel about two miles and go
over bridge. You are now on Torry
Island. Continue traveling west to
the pavilion parking area next to
the open water.


Participants showed up early last Saturday to enjoy the natu-
ral beauty as they walked the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail
in the Nick's Let's Just Play Family Walk.

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) voted to reauthorize and
expand the Violence Against
Women Act (VAWA). Reautho-
rization of VAWA was included in
the Department of Justice Appro-
priations Authorization Act. The
VAWA was last reauthorized in
2000 and is set to expire Sept. 30.
"This legislation has made a
Valuable contribution to declin-
ing rates of violent crime and its
reauthorization demonstrates
our continued commitment to
strengthen enforcement and pro-
tect our families," said Congress-
woman Harris.
The VAWA, passed by the
U.S. House, extends core pro-
grams, aimed at fighting domes-
tic violence, and makes improve-
ments to enhance the ability of
law enforcement officials to
domestic violence, dating vio-
lence, sexual assault, and stalk-
ing. The legislation was made


gender-neutral and expanded to
address the problem of violence
against children and youth by
including programs for college
campuses and assistance to
youth who are themselves vic-
tims of violence.
"This legislation has been
effective and I am confident its
expansion is another positive
step forward to prevent future
violence and the detrimental
impact it has on families and our
society," concluded Harris.
The Violence Against Women
Act:
Reauthorizes levels of fund-
ing for rape crisis centers, and
efforts to combat violent crimes
on campuses.
Places special victim assis-
tants in local law enforcement
agencies to serve as liaisons
between law enforcement and
victims.
Improves access to courts
for teenagers.

Weekend crashes claim two lives


By Patty Brant

Hendry County's traffic fatality
count for the year jumped once
again when two men died in relat-
ed accidents this past weekend.
The actual number is debated,
but it stands at 22-23.
In the first crash, which
occurred about 1:50 a.m., Oct. 2,
on SR 25 (U.S. 27) 0.9 miles north
of SR 80, a 1998 Ford traveling
northbound on SR 25 (U.S. 27)
veered off the road onto the east
side shoulder at a private drive-
way, then traveled across both
northbound lanes onto the medi-
an. The 1998 Ford continued back
and forth across the northbound


lanes before rolling over in the
outside lane. It then rolled over on
the east shoulder twice, coming
to a final rest on the driver's side
facing south.
A passenger was pinned
underneath the rear driver's side
where he expired. Three other
passengers were transported to
Lee Memorial Hospital by Air
Med. They were: Jose Escal, 44,
Fernando Lopez, 23, Faustino
Ramirez, 24. The identity of the
deceased has not been released,
pending notification of next of
kin. It is unknown who was driv-
ing the vehicle.
A fifth passenger died when he
was struck by another vehicle.
German P. Fuentes, age


unknown, left the crash and was
running westbound across both
northbound lanes of the highway.
He crossed the median, running
into the southbound lanes and
into the path of a 2002 Dodge,
driven by Ismeldo Fernandez-
Flecha, 32, of Hialeah. Mr. Fernan-
dez-Flecha's front left bumper
struck the victim, whose head
then struck the van's windshield.
Mr. Fuentes expired at the scene.
Glades County was also the
scene of a traffic fatality that day.
Joseph R. Risley IV, 33, of Muse,
died when his 2003 Ford pick up
truck left the road. FHP reports
that Mr. Risley was northbound
on CR 720, 13 miles east of Moore
Haven, when, "for unknown rea-
sons" his truck traveled onto the
east shoulder with its right
'wheels. He then steered left to re-
enter the road and crossed the
road, traveling onto the west
shoulder. He then steered right
and his truck began to rotate
.clockwise across the road and
onto the east shoulder where it
rotated sharply clockwise and


overturned to its right.
The vehicle came to a rest on
its left side, facing west. Mr. Risley,
who was not wearing a seatbelt,
suffered fatal injuries and expired
at the scene. The crash occurred
at approximately 2 a.in. Oct. 2.
In yet another serious crash
this past weekend, during the
early morning hours of Saturday,
Oct. 1 a 19-year-old man suffered
critical injuries in Glades County
on SR 25 (U.S. 27) south of SR 29.
It was another one-vehicle crash.
Steven Brandon Jackman was
transported to Lee Memorial Hos-
pital in critical condition.
According to the FHP report,
Mr. Jackman was southbound on
SR 25 at 5:08 a.m. when he fell
asleep. His 2003 Ford F250 veered
onto the west side shoulder, turn-
ing in a counter-clockwise direc-
tion, then veered back onto the
road, overturning onto its top.
The vehicle then slid and contin-
ued to travel sideways across the
two southbound lanes, coming to
a final rest on its top, blocking
both southbound lanes.

Program has
pros and cons
By Patty Brant
LABELLE Prison over-
crowding has been an issue for
years, defying solutions. Hendry
County is considering imple-
mentation of one possible solu-
tion, the state's Pretrial Release
Program. The idea has apparent-
ly met with some success in
Florida, according to 20th Circuit
Chief Judge Hugh Hayes. The
judge appeared before the
Hendry County Commissioners
Tuesday, Sept. 27, to plead his
case for the program.
According to Judge Hayes,
Collier, Lee and Charlotte Coun-
ties are already using the pro-
gram. However, bail bondsman
Kirk Jameson brought attention
to the program as applied in
Atlanta, Ga. He presented a video
of a news broadcast that pointed
out numerous problems there,
including the release of violent
felons and a lack of monitoring
participants. Mr. Jameson
adamantly opposed the pro-
gram, saying the program has
"failed miserably in several differ-
ent states."
Judge Hayes countered that
this state is a lot more "conserva-
tive" in its use of the program. He
said the 20th Circuit program
extends only to misdemeanor
arrests and possibly some third
degree felonies no violent
offenders are considered. Eligi-
bility requirements for the
Hendry program have not been
completed, but in general, those
eligible may not be a flight risk;
may not have been arrested for a
violent crime; must have a job
and may not be considered a
"threat to the community."
In the pretrial release pro-
gram, the participant does not
have to post bond but they must
meet certain conditions for
release. If they do not comply
with those conditions, a deputy
is sent to pick them up. Current-
ly, when a person is arrested and
posts bond, a bail bondsman
goes out to retrieve them if they
do not appear for court.
The chief judge said the pro-
gram helps the judge by desig-
nating only one contact for infor-
mation on that prisoner.
County Judge Jim Sloan said
the program could be a "bridge
between releasing someone on
their own recognizance (ROR)
and bonding out." The choice is.
up to the judge's discretion. He
explained that a pretrial release
officer would interview every-
one arrested before they go to
first appearance with the judge.
At the present time, at first
appearance, the judge gets infor-
mation from the booking sheet
and National Crime Information
Computer (NCIC), which is not
always complete. Often, Judge
Sloan said, the NCIC report does
not provide the disposition of pre-
vious arrests. The pretrial release
officer will double check on that


information, the individual's
employment, family situation, his
or her contact with the commu-
nity, the number of years they've
lived here and their potential
threat to the community. This
information will help the judge
decide between his options:
Denying bond, setting bond, ROR
or pretrial release. This same pre-
trial release officer will monitor
the offender. The pretrial release
officer would work Monday
through Friday, doing weekend
cases on Monday morning.
Judge Sloan said that the pro-
gram would not preclude eligible
people from bonding out before
first appearance, if they can.
Generally, in Hendry County
the offender would be required
to report in once a week. The
pretrial release officer will moni-
tor him or her by calling their job
site and making sure they are
updated on their court date. If
they do not show up for court,
the sheriff's office will send a
deputy to pick them up.
Judge Sloan said the specifics
have yet to be worked out. If
approved, the program won't
take effect until January 2006.
Time is needed to hire and train
someone for the position. The
program will also require an
inter-local agreement between
the court and the county. The
pretrial release officer would be
an employee of Circuit Co.urt
Admi strative Office, paid by the
county. The sheriff's office will
provide the space.
Judge Sloan said the program
has been used in other counties
and "appears successful enough
to maintain."
Judge Hayes told the com-
missioners that Sarasota County
saved $1 million in one year and
expects that Hendry County can
save some $200,000 the first year.
Judge Sloan agreed that the pro-
gram should be able to pay for
itself. Hendry County averages
10-15, sometimes 20 bookings
per day. It costs $55-$60 per day
to house an inmate in the
Hendry County Jail, with an aver-
age stay of about 45 days. That's
approximately $2,700 for one
inmate that could be saved
through the pretrial release pro-
gram. Overall, he expects the
program to be cheaper than
building a new jail.
Judge Sloan sited an example
of who might be eligible for the
program. Say someone is arrest-
ed for felony driving with a sus-
pended license. This person has
a family and' a job, but can't
make bond and is not consid-
ered a threat to the community. If
they remain in jail, it will deprive
the family of income while
they're incarcerated. This person
might be a candidate for pretrial
release with some conditions,
like having a plan to get to work
(since they cannot legally drive
themselves).
For the time being, the county
commission has postponed vot-
ing on the program to gather
information and work on the
required inter-local agreement.

USDA extends dairy disaster assistance


GAINESVILLE Dairy farm-
ers who experienced production
and spoilage losses caused by
last year's devastating hurri-
canes still have time to sign-up
for the U.S. DepartmenQt of Agri-
culture's (USDA) 2004 Dairy Dis-
aster Assistance Payment Pro-
gram (DDAP), announced Kevin
Kelley, state executive director
for USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA). The new deadline for
dairy farmers to apply for DDAP
is Oct. 10.
"The original Sept. 9 sign-up
deadline has been extended to
Oct. 10, and any dairy producer
interested in signing up for the
program should visit their local
FSA office as soon as possible,"
said Kelley.
"Last year, hurricane Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne severe-
ly affected our dairy producers


in Florida. This program will
provide muth-needed financial
relief to producers who suffered
dairy production and milk
spoilage losses," he said.
The DDAP program provides
up to $10 million to assist dairy
producers who experienced
losses due to the 2004 hurri-
canes in certain portions of fol-
lowing states: Alabama, Florida,
Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi,
North Carolina, and South Car-
olina. Sign-up began Aug. 15,
2005. The new application dead-
line will be 14 calendar days
after the publication of the
DDAP program final regulation
in the Federal Register.
The 2004 Dairy Disaster Assis-
tance Payment Program is
authorized by the Military Con-
struction Appropriations and
Emergency Hurricane Supple-


mental Appropriations Act of
2005. Many dairy producers
incurred devastating decreases
in production due to cattle loss-
es, stress on producing cows,
and milk that had to be dumped
due to lack of electricity, closed
milk plants and damaged con-
tainment equipment. DDAP will
help address dairy producers'
2004 calendar-year losses by
providing payments to offset
part of the commercially mar-
keted milk losses incurred in the
United States.
To be eligible, the loss must
have occurred in a county
declared a disaster by the presi-
dent in 2004 due to hurricanes.
Dairy producers in counties con-
tiguous to an approved county
are not eligible. Applicants must
provide adequate proof of the
dairy operation's commercial


production, including any
dumped production, from July
through October 2004. Appli-
cants must also certify that loss-
es, for, which compensation is
claimed were hurricane-related.
Payments will begin soon
after sign-up ends. Each eligible
dairy operation's payment will
be calculated by multiplying the
eligible pounds by the average
price received for commercial
milk production during the eligi-
ble months. In the event avail-
able funds are insufficient to
compensate eligible producers,
eligible losses above 20 percent
will be paid at the maximum per
pound rate and losses below 20
percent will be made at 'a rate
that will exhaust the available
funds that remain following pay-
ment of eligible losses at the
higher level.

It is estimated that 13,430 Florida women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
When breast cancer is detected early and treated promptly, suffering and ultimately the loss
of life can be significantly reduced. Mammography (an x-ray picture of the breast) is
the ..ii'efe most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. This is why, in recognition of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograms for a
special discounted rate of $60 throughout the month of October.

Rounding up volunteers
and business partners
We are proud to announce that
the following businesses/agencies
have agreed to participate in our
Business Partnership Program for
2005-06 school year: Area Agency
on Aging, Belle Glade Police
Department, Florida Migrant Inter-
state Program, Florida Power and
Light, Jay's Fashion, Kathryn Beich,

agency is interested in joining the
ranks of a very special group at
Gove Elementary.
Parent power cards
It is that time of the year where
parents are encouraged to get
involved in their child's education.
The Title I Migrant Education Pro-
gram provides migrant parents
with a "Parent Power Card" each
grading period. The purpose of the
card is to encourage parental partic-
ipation in a least six, school-related
functions. Each time they visit their
child's school, the appropriate
school personnel signs the card. At
the end of each grading period, the
cards are returned to the Family
First Office (West Area) where they
will be eligible to participate in a
"family fun-filled night" drawing.
We encourage all parents to take an
active role in their child's education
by participating in all school events.
Five star award
For the eighth year in a row,
Gove Elementary has been the
recipient of the prestigious Five
Star Award. This award is given by
the state to designate and recog-
nize schools that have total com-
munity involvement. We are
proud to receive this award once
again and thank the students, staff,
parents and community for their
involvement.

Glades. Day School
Great strides in technology
were taken at Glades Day School
over this past summer. From June
6-9 high school teachers Tori Clark
and Jim Teets participated in a
weeklong seminar at Boynton
Beach High School. They were
trained on the SMaRT program,
which stands for Science, Math and
Reading Technology and is a new
program designed to encourage
teachers to implement technology
into their classrooms. A grant
received by the school district
allowed for an Apple IBook laptop
and a Cannon PowerShot A400
digital camera to be given to each
of the teachers in training.
It is an ongoing program and
the two teachers periodically
attend seminars to explore the
many teaching options available
through this new technology. They
will soon be adding a scanner and
a video camera to their new collec-
tion of classroom tools. Many of
the Glades Day faculty members
were already using projectors and
PowerPoint presentations during
their daily lectures. Now Clark and
Teets are currently implementing
classroom planning and activities
using PowerPoint and their new hi-
tech hardware, and as department
heads, they will soon be sharing
their new teaching techniques with
the entire faculty.
Two other new technological
resources at GDS are Edline and
River Deep. Edline is a new Web
site based program that allows stu-
dents and parents to have access to
teacher's planning lessons and stu-
dents grades and assignments
from their own homes. The pro-
gram will be up and running and
used by all the teachers by the sec-
ond semester. The Web site is
www.edline.net, and parents will
have their own personal number
to activate their account. The River
Deep software was acquired with a
grant and is teaching software on
the Glades Day network, which has
ideas and new ways for teachers to
present subject information to their
classes. It also has activities and les-
sons that can be printed for individ-
ual student use or shown using a
projector for class presentations.
All of these new programs will
surely allow our students addition-
al opportunities for learning
through technology.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Water
Continued From Page 1
According to the county, resi-
dents have nothing to worry about.
Two separate tests at the site
have proven that no threat exists,
county officials said. One, the
Phase I Environmental Site Assess-
ment prepared in 2003 by Nodarse
& Associates, Inc. for Palm Beach
County explains that, "reconnais-
sance of the subject site did not
indicate the presence of environ-
mentally suspicious activities or
potential environmental concerns
on the subject property."
Language included in the docu-
ment standard in such tests -
said, "N&A cannot under any cir-
cumstances warrant or guarantee
that not finding indicators of haz-
ardous materials means that haz-
ardous materials do not exist at the
site. Additional research, including
invasive testing, can reduce your
risks, but no techniques now com-
monly employed can eliminate
these risk altogether."
But the environmental tests,
including the second phase of test-
ing, is enough to quell the concern
of Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Tony Masilotti, who added
that he himself initially had ques-
tions about the site. "I understand
and appreciate the comments,"
Commissioner Masilotti said last
week in response to the desire of
the two cities to assure residents
that the site is safe. He said the test-
ing of the soil, a portion of which
was overseen by EPA, happened
prior to the county committing to a
site, as commissioners understood


Board
Continued From Page 1
made his own recommendation
that the seat be filled, through
rotation, by representatives in
each of the Glades cities.
Mayor Wilson said he was flat-
tered by the support of the mem-
bers on the tri-cities board to
allow him to represent, but
offered the recommendation as a
way of ensuring that every com-
munity locally would, at some
point, be allowed to represent the
Glades as a whole on the project.
Mayor Wilson said the process
should begin with the tri-cities
chairperson, South Bay Mayor
Clarence Anthony, and then move
onto Pahokee and finally Belle
Glade, ensuring uniform repre-
sentation.
The city of Pahokee had asked
its utility director to identify a per-
son in the community who might,
without bias, represent the three
cities on the board. The city came
up with the name of a resident of
Belle Glade who has worked for,
among other companies, the city
of South Bay and U.S. Sugar in
their respective water treatment.
plants as water plant operator.
Though the option of selecting
the residents was not discussed,
that person may still serve, as the
board amended its suggestion to
allow either a representative or an
appointment to serve as the rep-
resentative.

screening process to ensure that
the children in the program are
protected, including a back-
ground screening. Once they pass
the application process, volun-
teers are asked to commit to one
year as a mentor, providing at
least two hours each week.
According to staff though, most
volunteers donate more than just
two hours each week.
This December, the program
celebrates its first year. Going into
that second year, the staff hopes
to at least double the number of
mentors at the program. "It takes

the history behind the site.
Mayor Sasser, meanwhile,
asserts that the three cities have
had access to this information for
some time. That the cities would
take the time to respond to old
issues, he said at the tri-cities meet-
ing, was simply wasting time.
At the suggestion of a town hall
meeting to address public concern
over the safety of the site, Mayor
Sasser said, "I am not going to
embarrass the city of Pahokee," by
participating. Moments later, he
walked out of the meeting in seem-
ing disbelief. "I am removing
myself from this board," he said. "I
am overwhelmed by the stupidity
in this room."
In their defense, the commis-
sioners asking to review the site
location said it is the duty of gov-
ernment to respond to issues
affecting residents. "We have a
responsibility to provide the infor-
mation," said Mayor Steve Wilson
of Belle Glade. At a Belle Glade City
Commission meeting later, Mr.
Wilson said, "It would be a shame
to build a fifty-rhillion dollar plant
and people are not comfortable
drinking the water."
"It is not embarrassing when
you respond to your public," said.
Vice-Mayor Esther Berry of South
Bay. Vice-Mayor Berry at that time
asked to see any studies that would
address the issue being raised by
the community.
Her fellow commissioner
Shirley Walker-Turner added, "We
really do need to see the docu-
ments before we move forward."


According to the members of
the tri-cities board, early discus-
sions on the subject focused on
whether or not it was more
appropriate to select a citizen to
serve, as opposed to an elected
official. The argument supporting
selecting a non-political represen-
tative centered on the fact that a
person with experience in dealing
with treatment plants, or educat-
ed on the subject, could provide
input that political officials could
not.
At last week's tri-cities meet-
ing, commissioners countered
that 'argument, saying that the
water plant, a large issue in the
Glades as well as the county, in
the end must be followed careful-
ly that only an elected official
can adequately represent and
reflect the desires of the commu-
nity at large. The representatives
can just as easily draw on the
expertise from the county, or even
locally, when technical issues
arise, some in the discussion
pointed out.
The board seemed to agree
that the rotation would benefit all
three cities, but questions regard-
ing specific bylaws, and whether
they would allow such an
appointment, arose. It was decid-
ed by the board to continue to
support the original appointment
of Mayor Wilson as the sole repre-
sentative, while work on gaining a
better understanding of the
bylaws is carried out, with the
final goal of appointing represen-
tatives on a rotation basis.


a lot of responsibility to be men-
tor," Ms. McNutt told the mentors
at the awards ceremony. "I am
constantly bragging how great
you guys are."
If you are interested in becom-
ing a mentor, or if you would like
to learn more about this program,
please contact Ms. McNutt or Ms.

Sealed with a kick: Tigers outlast Newman 37-34


By Bill Fabian

CLEWISTON The Clewiston
Tigers came home for its first dis-
trict challenge against Cardinal
Newman, in its second of four
home games this year for the
Tigers. Coming off a tough, hard
fought battle against Glades Cen-
tral, the Tigers hoped to take out
some frustration on the Crusaders,
who brought a potent, physical
running and passing attack to Cane
Field.
Following an immediate three-
and-out by the Tiger offense, a punt
by quarterback Jared Combass
was returned 61 yards by the .Cru-
saders' Anthony Nelson for the
score. Three plays later, the Tigers
offense was absolutely stunned
when a Combass pass was picked
off in the open field by linebacker
Conlan Kennedy, who pulled away
with the ball for a 27-yard touch-
down.
With just four minutes off the
clock, Clewiston found themselves
trailing 13-0, and the Crusader
offense had yet to step onto the
field.
Interestingly enough, the open-
ing series of events may have bene-
fited the Tigers, whose defense was
more than ready for the Crusaders,

Clewiston's winning drive


began at their 37 with 5:07 on the
clock. Two complete passes and
four running plays got the Tigers to
the Crusader 14. Facing a fourth-
and-four, Tiger Coach Tommy Mor-
rell called timeout to consider
attempting the field goal.
Coach Morrell opted to put the
game on his combination quarter-
back/kicker and Combass, kicking
from the right hash mark, split the
uprights.
Coach Morrell said "Whew! We
got ourselves down two scores
right from the start and our boys
had to play catch up. I'm proud of
our kids. The Crusaders are a good
football team and they put nine
defenders in the box and dared us
to pass. Jared Combass had a great
night passing and our receivers not
only caught the ball well, they
added some big yards tonight after
their catches. It's great to get that
first district win."
S Defensively, sophomore line-
backer Delvin Hughes had five solo
.tackles. Linebacker Richard Pope
and cornerback Daniel Collins
each had a fumble recovery and
linebacker David Pope forced both
fumbles. Nate Brinkley blocked a
point after kick and linebacker Carl
Whitehead had a quarterback sack
for minus nine yards.


Pahokee wins big Division 7-2B game against Hustlers


By Nina G. Wills

Big Game: Big Hits. Big Throws.
Big Win. The Pahokee Blue Devils
won a huge division game against
the Melbourne Central Catholic
Hustlers Friday night. The talk of the
first half was the absence of senior
quarterback and team leader
Robert Love. He battled a stomach
ailment, and did not enter the
game until the second quarter, but
backup quarterback Anthony
Sheppard did a fine job filling in for
Love.
The Blue Devils' defense shined
once again. The Blue Devils created
a new line of scrimmage dropping
the Hustlers for losses on numer-
ous plays.
On the Hustlers' second posses-
sion of the game, Rudy Robinson
sacked quarterback Suarez for a
six-yard loss. Pahokee received
excellent field position starting at
the Hustlers' 36-yard line. Running
back Ricky Gary ran the ball nine
yards on a toss-sweep play. On a
third and virtually inches, Anthony
Sheppard took it to the air throwing


Team Statistics
Robert Love was nine-of-15 for 169 yards and two TDs.
Anthony Sheppard was three-of-four for 44 yards and one TD.
Nikita White had one reception for 77 yards and one TD.
Martavious Odoms had four receptions for 48 yards and one TD.
Tamarcus Porter had three receptions for 55 yards.
Antavious Wilson had one reception for 10 yards.

Un'Tavious Scott had one reception for five yards (for a two-point con-
version).
Janoris Jenkins rushed eight times for 56 yards and two TDs.
Ricky Gary rushed five times for 36 yards and one TD.
Vincent Smith rushed seven times for 31 yards.
Vincent Cheves rushed one time for 22 yards.
\Nikita White rushed one time for 16 yards.
Martavious Odoms rushed one time for 11 yards.
Deonte Abrams rushed one time for 10 yards.

a 26-yard TD pass to Tamarcus
Porter. Porter out jumped the
defender to get Pahokee on the
scoreboard. The PAT failed, but the
Devils went up 6-0. The Hustlers


faced a tough Blue Devils defense
all night. On the Hustlers next pos-
session, the Blue Devils made tack-
les for losses on three consecutive
plays. Micanor Regis and Jacoby


Love sacked the Hustlers quarter-
back for a second time.
Anthony Sheppard led the Blue
Devils to another scoring drive on
their next possession. Sheppard
made a throw to wide out Tanoris
Jones. On an end-around play,
Nikita White ran the ball to the Hus-.
tler's 25-yard line. Janoris Jenkins,
with his lightning fast speed, ran
straight- through the Hustler's
defense virtually untouched. Jenk-
ins scored the second Blue Devils
touchdown of the game. The
attempt at the two-point conver-
sion failed, but Pahokee took com-
mand of a 12-0 lead.
Love entered the game in the
second quarter and on his fourth
play from scrimmage, Love threw a
perfect spiral to Nikita White for a
77-yard touchdown. Pahokee
entered the halftime break with a
18-0 lead over Melbourne Cehtral
Catholic.
To start the third quarter, Paho-
kee moved the ball, but faced a
fourth down. The Blue Devils sent
out their punting unit. To every-
one's surprise, Vincent Cheves ran


the ball for 22 yards, giving the Blue
Devils a fresh set of downs. Paho-
kee once again moved the chains,
setting up a first and goal from the
six-yard line. Ricky Gary ran the ball
for the Blue Devils' fourth touch-
down of the game. Pahokee
increased its lead to 24-0. The Blue
Devils scored again on their next,
possession with a two-yard touch-
down run by Jenkins.
The Hustlers finally got on the
board with 2:16 to go in the third
quarter. Suarez threw a nine-yard
TD pass to John Walsh. The
attempt at the two-point conver-
sion failed. This was the first touch-
down allowed by the Blue Devils
defense in 14 quarters of play.
Needless to say, points are hard to
come by for the offenses facing this
Devils' defense. The Hustlers
attempted an on-side kick and
Pahokee recovered the ball. The
offense ran the ball three times
with Freshman RB Vincent Smith.
On a fourth and four at the Hus-
tlers' 12-yard line, Pahokee could
not convert on the down and gave
the ball back to the Hustlers'.


Melbourne Central Catholic was
forced to punt deep in its own terri-
tory on their next possession. Mel-
bourne Central Catholic punted
eight times Friday night. Robert
Love led the Blue Devils offense to
its final scoring drive. Love connect-
ed with Martavious Odoms on an
18-yard touchdown pass. The
attempt for the two-point conver-
sion was good when Love threw to
tight end Un'Tavious Scott.
. Pahokee defeated Melbourne
Central Catholic 38-6. The Devils
dominated the game on both sides
of ball. This was a game of big-time
players making big-time plays. The
offense came out strong this Week
showing off its talented group of
receivers and taking advantage of
the Hustlers weak secondary.
Pahokee is now 4-1 on the season
and 2-1 in its division. Pahokee will
be facing Royal Palm Beach this
weekend. This game was resched-
uled due to Hurricane Katrina early
in September. The game will be at
Royal Palm Beach at 7:30 p.m.


GC Raiders defeat



Pope John Paul


BELLE GLADE The Raiders
continue in their journey to yet
another successful season, defeat-
ing their fourth opponent in a row
in a convincing victory last Friday
night.
Pope John Paul was helpless as
they tried to keep the Raiders at bay
by stopping offensive powerhouse
Deandre Holley, whose scoring that
night brought the Raider win home..
Pope John Paul came out strong
in the first quarter, scoring 11 points
and stopping the Raider offense,
but that effort would not last. Not a
team to stick around for a defeat,
Glades Central shot back in the sec-
ond quarter, scoring a dozen points
of their own to assume the lead
going into the second half. Holley
scored off of a 13-yard touchdown
run before connecting with Tarus
McKinley with a 42-yard pass for a

touchdown, in the second quarter.
Holley scored again in the third
quarter with another touchdown
run from 13 yards out, as Pope
John Paul responded with a touch-
down of its own to even the score
going into the final quarter.
With the game on the line, the
Raiders stepped up to the plate to
deliver Pope John Paul a stunning
defeat. Holley spurred his team-
mates to action, scoring the first
touchdown in the fourth off a one-
yard run. Aston Samuels followed
suit, with a 13-yard touchdown
run. La'Von Towns capped off the
victory, with an eight-yard run of his
own to end the night.
The Raiders won the game
36-18.
The team prepares for its next
game tomorrow against Dillard
High School.


LAKE OKEECHOBEE
REGULATION SCHEDULE STUDY OF THE
CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN FLORIDA PROJECT
FOR FLOOD CONTROL


Tuesday, October 11, 2005
7:00PM Presentation
Following presentation, open for public comment

Location: John Boy Auditorium
1200 South W.C. Owens Avenue
Clewiston, Florida 33440

The purpose of the meeting is to present the Lake Okeechobee Regulation
Schedule Study and the potential improvements to the Water Supply and
Environment Schedule (WSE) and to give all interested individuals, groups and
agencies an opportunity to express their views and ask questions.

The Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is intending to
prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the Lake
Okeechobee Regulation Schedule Study (LORSS). The current WSE schedule
was the preferred alternative in the LORSS Final Environmental Impact
Statement in July 2000 for the regulation of Lake Okeechobee. Recent
scientific modeling suggests that the regulation schedule could be improved to
allow greater flexibility in achieving optimal lake levels and optimal discharges
to various downstream parts of the Central and Southern Florida systems.

Public comments will be taken until November 11, 2005. Comments can
. be submitted to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Attn: Nelson Colon, Planning
Division, 701 San Marco Blvd., Jacksonville, Florida 32207 or by email to
publicmail,cesai -cc@sai2.usace.army,mili

Assistance for individuals with special needs or requesting translations is
available by calling (904) 232-2568 at least five days prior to this event.

Lady Gators on a roll; sweep Summit Christian


By Mark Young
The Lady Gators broke out the
broom and swept district rival
Summit Christian out of the build-
ing with a dominating three-game
victory Sept. 29 at home.
Glades Day came into the dis-
trict contest with a bit of momen-
tum after defeating Lake Worth
Christian just two days earlier and
while the victory was considered
an upset, the Lady Gators dominat-
ed the action with a game one vic-
tory of 25-19, lost game two 25-13,
but pulled out back to back 25-21
victories to secure the match.
Junior Alleigh Schlechter domi-
nated the net with 14 kills and
sophomore Danielle Sly had a stel-
lar game with a dozen kills, four
blocks, and served up a pair of aces
in leading the team in service
points with 18. Sophomore Natalie
Harville had nine kills, while senior
Ashley Baughman denied the Lake
Worth Christian hitters five times.
Sophomore setter Andrea
Browder also had 18 service points
with a pair of aces and added 14
assists while sophomore Erin McK-
instry returned from injury to dish
out a team leading 18 assists.
Recovering from injuries, the
Lady Gators are finding themselves
on a roll and the momentum
gained with the victory over Lake
Worth Christian, a team with a 9-3
record, carried over into their dis-
trict game against Summit Christ-
ian where the Lady Gators took the
match with victories of 25-13, 25--
12, and 25-19.
It was clear from the opening
game that the Lady Gators are
steadily building confidence in their
abilities and opened up a quick 5-1
advantage behind the serving of
Browder. Baughman picked up an
early block and Harville grabbed
the first of her team leading nine
kills in the opening run.
Summit Christian mounted a

brief comeback bid, but an ace
from Harville and a kill from senior
Heather Daglion saw the Lady
Gators launch another run, but it
was a seven-point run on their next
service possession that broke the
game open for good. Daglion
stepped to the line to pick up a half
dozen service points, which
include an ace, but Baughman lit
up the net with a pair of strong kills
and had plenty of help from
Schlechter and sophomore middle
hitter Danielle Sly, with both players
picking up key kills on the run.
The Lady gators went up 16-6
before exploding into another
seven-point run with Sly going up
for a pair of kills and Baughman
picking up an ace to give the Lady
Gators a 22-8 advantage en route to
closing out the 25-13 win:
Summit Christian kept the Lady
Gators in sight for much of game
two, but Glades Day slowly
chipped out an 18-11 lead before
going on a six-point run late in the
match. Schlechter came on strong
with a three kills during the run and


junior Kalyn Rayburr added one
more to the totals as Glades Day
opening up 24-11 lead and had little
trouble closing out the game with a
25-12 victory.
Glades Day never trailed Sum-
mit Christian in this match and
game three was no exception as
aces from Browder and Daglion, as
well as kills from Baughman and
Sly put the Lady Gators up by a
score of 8-3 early in game three.
The green and gold squad extend-
ed that advantage to 16-5 with
Harville dominating the net and
Schlechter serving up aces.
Summit Christian had their best
offensive run of the match late in
game three and after trailing 19-8,
launched a six-point run of their
own to cut the lead to 19-14. Kills
from Schlechter and Baughman
put. the Lady Gators 21-14, but
Summit Christian refused to give
up and fought back to cut the lead
down to four.
Glades Day had to fight for their
last few points, but were never

Christian 25-19 in game three to
secure the match victory by three
games to none.
"Having our injured players back
is making a big difference for us
right now," said head coach Kathy
McReynolds. "This is a young team
and they are beginning to have con-
fidence in their ability and have a
better understanding of the game."
The Lady Gators have one fresh-
man and four sophomores on this
year's squad and all four sopho-
mores are key contributors to the


squad. Glades Day also has four
juniors and only a pair of seniors as
this young team begins to pick up
momentum.
The victory over Summit Christ-
ian pulled the Lady Gators' season
record to 6-7, but more importantly
have a solid 4-1 district record.
The Lady Gators followed up
their recent victories with tourna-
ment play at Canterbury and came
away with a fifth place finish after
splitting the tournament with a 2-2
record to up their season record to

Terriers' season hits the critical mark


Gators win
third straight
By Bill Fabian
NAPLES Moore Haven
Junior-Senior High School's foot-
ball expectations have begun to
fade into frustration, since the Ter-
riers fell in a crucial district match-
up against St. John Neumann in
Naples.
The Terriers dropped to 1-4
after an afternoon game at the
Naples school was lost 15-12 Fri-
day, Sept. 30.
The Terriers are certainly still in
contention, with two more district
games upcoming and a chance to
salvage a winning season, if they
can find a way to run the table in
games at LaBelle, and a three-
game home stand against Evan-


gelical Christian, Glades Day, both
district games, and the season
finale hosting St. Edward's of Vero
Beach.
Friday's game against Neu-
mann brought the Terriers to 0-1
in district play. Terrier Head Coach
Andy Ringstaff will have to lead
the Terriers into LaBelle seeking a
win against the Cowboys, who
have improved to 3-2 following
Friday's 41-13 win against Lemon
Bay of Englewood.
Glades Day 32,
Evangelical 12
FORT MYERS The Glades
Day Gators sloshed their way to a
third straight victory in a rain-
soaked game against district foe
Evangelical Christian (4-2, 0-1) on
Friday, Sept. 30.
The game was delayed for


more than an hour by-lighting, the
second time this season the
Gators had to deal with severe
weather. The last time saw the
Gators go down in defeat against
Benjamin, a game Glades Day
head coach Craig Dobson said his
Gators should have won and
would like to have that one back.
But Friday's severe weather
didn't halt the Gators' who saw
their air attack dampened by the
wet weather, but not their steady
ground assault.
When the teams finally took
the field, the Gators struck first
with a 22-yard touchdown run by
Frank Lugo, who led the Gator
offensive weaponry with 135
yards rushing. The Gators added
to their first quarter run attack
with another 18-yard touchdown
by Ricky Reitz.
With Reitz's 129 yards rushing,


the Gator offense finished the
night with 381 total yards, entirely
from rushing yards. The Gators
passing game was dampened by
the rainy conditions, as quarter-
back Brandon Smith was unable
to complete a pass on seven
attempts.
The Gators put the game away
with a 52-yard rushing touch-
down by wide out Andrew
Joseph.
With the victory, Glades Day
(3-1, 1-0) opened its district series
with the win against Evangelical.
The Gators will travel once again
to American Heritage, in Delray
Beach this Friday. The Gators have
two more district face-offs,
against St. John Neumann and
Moore Haven, in addition to host-
ing games against King's Acade-
my and Northwest Christian.

Tigers place seventh

in mega-tourney


By Mark Young
SEBRING The Clewiston
linksters headed to Sebring Sept.
19 to partake in the largest high
school 18-hole tournament in
the state and in their first ever
appearance in this mega-tourna-
ment, came home with a sev-
enth place finish.
There a total of 27 teams
competing in the annual Crutch-
field Sadie Hawkins Invitational
and the Tiger head coach Mike
Kemp called it, "a great experi-
ence for the greatly improved
2005 Tiger golf team."
Senior Brett Cameron, cap-
tain of the Tiger linksters, shot a
seven-over par for a 79 score to
lead the Tigers. Brandon Pena
wasn't far behind with an 81. In
total, the Tigers posted a score of
361, the best team score a Tiger
golf squad has posted in more
than five years on an 18-hole
course.
The Tigers followed their
spectacular performance with a
road trip to Belle Glade to take on
the Gators of Glades Day and
were just one shot off of picking
up their seventh victory of the
year. The Gators posted a 179 to
the Tigers' 180 and it was the sec-
ond time in two years, the Gators
were able to edge the Tigers by a
mere stroke for the victory.
Clewiston and Glades Day
will meet again when they will
make up an earlier match post-
poned due to weather at an


unannounced time and date.
Pena, a sophomore on the
Tiger squad, posted a 40 on the
Belle Glade back nine to lead the
Clewiston squad. Cameron shot
a 44, junior Josh Adams shot a
47, senior Kyle Kirstein shot a 49,
sophomore Steven Westbury
shot a 52, and senior Stephen
Duplooy shot a 53 to round out
the Tiger scoring.
The Tigers ended their week
of play against their cross-county
rivals from LaBelle, with Lake
Placid jumping into the fray as
well. The Tigers swept both
squads to improve their season
record to 8-2 on the year. Pena
dominated the field with a two-
over 38.
"Brandon is an excellent
golfer and he also helps to make
his teammates better as well,"
said coach Kemp of his young
golfer.
Pena had plenty of help as
junior James Miracle shot a 45,
Cameron posted a 47, junior
Justin Cotton shot a 48, West-
bury shot a 55, and freshman
Tim Burke tallied a 61 for the
Tigers.
Clewiston posted a team
score of 178 to Lake Placid's 192
and Glades LaBelle's 225.
Other than Clewiston's unan-
nounced rematch with Glades
Day, the Tigers have Immokalee
at the Clewiston Country Club
today at 3:'30 p.m., which will be
their season finale before dis-
tricts begin Oct. 18 at Avon Park.

USDA issues final



crop payments


GAINESVILLE Peanut and
upland cotton farmers will soon
be receiving 2004 crop counter-
cyclical payments of $81 per short
ton for peanuts and 13.73-cents-
per-pound for upland cotton,
announced Kevin Kelley, state
executive director for USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
Required by the 2002 Farm
Bill, final counter-cyclical pro-
gram (CCP) payments for
peanuts and upland cotton are
- made after the end of the mar-
keting year. The 2002 Farm Bill
provides for two partial 2004
crop CCP payments, one in
October 2004 and one in Febru-
ary 2005. The final weighted
average marketing year price for
2004 crop peanuts, which was
announced on Aug. 31, 2005, is
$378 per short ton, $23 higher
than the $355 loan rate.
The payment rate for upland
cotton is at its maximum level
due to low market prices that
have averaged well below the 52-
cents-per-pound loan rate during
the marketing year. Because of
these low prices, USDA is able to
determine the final counter-cycli-
cal rate at this time.
Producers who accepted the
I'first and second partial CCP pay-
ments for 2004 crop peanuts
received $41.30 per ton and are
due an additional $39.70 per ton.
Producers who accepted the first


and second partial CCP pay-
ments for 2004 crop upland cot-
ton received 9.61-cents-per-
pound and are due an additional
4.12-cents-per-pound.
The counter-cyclical payment
rate is the amount by which the
"target price" of each commodf-
ty exceeds its effective price. The
effective price equals the direct
payment rate plus the higher of:
(1) the national average market
price received by producers dur-
ing the marketing year, or (2) the
national average loan rate for the
commodity. The counter-cyclical
payment equals the counter-
cyclical payment rate multiplied
by 85 percent of the farm's base
acreage multiplied by the farm's
counter-cyclical payment yield
for each crop. Target prices are
mandated in the 2002 Farm Bill.
The final 2004 counter-cycli-
cal payment rate for barley is 15-
cents-per-bushel. Those pay-
ments were made during July.
Producers will not receive 2004
crop counter-cyclical payments
for wheat, oats and other
oilseeds because their 2004
effective prices equal or exceed
their respective "target prices".
For more information on the
direct and counter-cyclical pay-
ment program, producers can
contact their local USDA Service
Center or visit USDA online at
http://www.usda.gov.


Conservation reserve program contracts expiring


GAINESVILLE Farmers and
ranchers can now re-enroll or
extend their Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP) con-
tracts expiring in 2007 through
2010, announced Kevin Kelley,
state executive director for
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA). This effort fulfills the com-
mitment President Bush made
last year to underscore the
Administration's commitment to
improving the environment and
protecting the nation's wildlife
habitat, water and natural
resources.
"We're offering farmers and
ranchers re-enrollments and
contract extensions so they can
take full advantage of the envi-
ronmental benefits of this pro-
gram," said Kelley. "Re-enrolling
and extending these contracts is
part of the president's plan to
fully use the nearly 40 million
acres of CRP to improve water
quality as well as wildlife habi-
tat."
In order to determine who
might be able to re-enroll or
extend their CRP contract,
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) will use the Environmental
Benefits Index (EBI) that was in
place when the contracts were
first written. The EBI is a measur-
ing system that assigns point
scores to the contracts and then
nationally ranks all CRP land
enrollment offers.
Several environmental out-
comes factor into EBI point


"We're offering farmers and ranchers re-enroll-
ments and contract extensions so they can take
full advantage of the environmental benefits of
this program. Re-enrolling and extending these
contracts is part of the president's plan to fully
use the nearly 40 million acres of CRP to improve
water quality as well as wildlife habitat."
Kevin Kelley,
state executive director for
USDA's FIrm Service Agency (FSA)


scores such as improving
wildlife habitat, water quality,
and air quality and reducing soil
erosion.
The EBI scores are based
upon a 100 percentile that is
divided into five ranking tiers. In
the first tier, CRP producers rank-
ing in the top 20 percent of the
EBI can re-enroll their land in
new contracts and farmers and
ranchers with wetlands in this
ranking can receive contract
terms of 10-15years.
CRP producers ranking with-
in the second tier, between the
61-80 percent, can extend their
contracts for five years. Farmers
and ranchers ranking within the
third tier, 41-60 percent, can
extend their CRP contracts by
four years. Those ranking in the
fourth tier, between 21-40 per-
cent, can receive three-year
extensions. And those contracts
ranking in the fifth tier of the 20


percent of CRP producers can
extend their contracts by two
years.
As a result of this land conser-
vation program, many wide-
spread environmental benefits
have evolved. For example:
Reductions in soil erosion
are reaching more than 450 mil-
lion tons per year, thereby
increasing air quality due to less
airborne contamination.
Sediment and nutrient
runoff into rivers and streams is
improving.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service estimates that CRP is
increasing duck populations by
more than two million per year.
Ring-necked pheasant popula-
tions in Minnesota, North Dako-
ta, South Dakota and Ohio are
rising by 200 percent.
CRP is increasing grasshop-
per sparrow, lark bunting and

The long-absent prairie
chickens in Texas are reappear-
ing.
CRP is helping Columbian
sharp-tailed grouse recover.
New bird habitats in the
Northern Great Plains are
emerging.
Western state populations
of big game elk, mule' deer,
white-tailed deer and pronghorn
antelope are increasing.
In spring 2006, FSA will write
to CRP producers with contracts
expiring Sept. 30, 2007, to dis-
cuss whether those contracts are
eligible for re-enrollment or
extension. Farmers and ranchers
will confirm-their contract inter-
ests at that point and a compli-
ance check will be necessary.
Fifteen-year contracts expir-
ing Sept. 30, 2007, are not eligi-
ble for re-enrollment or exten-
sion. During the next several
months FSA will update the CRP
rental rates to better reflect local
market rates for cropland on
new contract re-enrollments and
will review cropland enrollment
limits on a county-by-county
basis.
CRP is a voluntary program
for agricultural producers, which
help them protect environmen-
tally sensitive land. Producers
enrolling in CRP plant long-term,
resource conservation covers
with USDA providing rental pay-
ments and cost-share assistance.
