ture of more than a handful of that he said the department, and
officers from the force. the city, have no control over. Per-
Though the department con- haps it's because the officers

Reigning royalty: Future homecoming court?


INI/Jose Zaragoza
PEPPI Head Start's royalty was crowned last week during a ceremony held at Tanner Park
in South Bay. The children donned entirely grownup attire while impressing the judges at
the event, who carefully made their selection. In the end, four contestants received the
honor of representing the school as proper royalty. Pictured: King James Davis joins
Queen Strena,Montes, as well as Princess Tyson Spencpr and Prince Carlos Lawrence.


A number of PEPPI's students were among the contestants vying for top honors at the
coronation ceremony.

much does pay figure into the
equation? According to Chief
Dowdell, while pay remains an
issue that officers think about, it
is not the only issue that officers


consider when contemplating
leaving the force.
As a result of the officers leav-
ing, the chief said he has heard
more complaints, specifically
related to the sometimes late
arrival of officers to calls. With
the workforce now on hand, if a
call goes out that requires the
need for many officers, the chief
said, other calls can experience
delays. However, it does not
mean that the police department

GCDC faces



new funding



shortfall


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Since
opening its doors 15 years ago,
Glades Community Develop-
ment Corporation in Belle Glade
has served as an integral part of
the tri-cities communities.
The corporation and its staff
has played a role in many impor-
tant projects, following closely
the path laid down by its board
of directors and always with a
presence whenever the commu-
nity has called on them.
Today, the entity finds itself in
a situation it is not familiar with
- a major funding shortfall has
substantially reduced its operat-


ing budget. The organization
now operates with only two
employees.
GCDC now seeks help from
the community in continuing its
operations.
GCDC has been a major
impetus for change.
According to Ms. Moore-
Williams, the approach of GCDC
to other agencies has always
been an approach of partner-
ship. "How can we help?" can
almost be the organization's
motto, as time and again it
strived to see other programs in
the area to succeed.

City to place



annexation



on next ballot


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE After
months of planning, the city of
Belle Glade prepares to let
affected residents decide
whether or not to annex sever-
al large parcels of land into the
city. If the voters approve it,
hundreds of new residents will
be accepted into the city limits.
The ballot is still months
away and still depends on
whether or not commissioners
approve the second reading of
an ordinance related to the
issue, though that is expected
to happen at the next city meet-
ing.
The area in question


includes the 715 Mobile Home
Park, the multi-family apart-
ments at Glades Glen and
Glades Central and its sur-
rounding land in Pioneer Park.
The comprised area of 15
parcels totals just over 250
acres of land. The chunk of
land is located just south of
Belle Glade, the borders of
which run adjacent State Road
80 and State Road 715.
For approximately two
years, the city has worked on
the project, according to City
Manager Houston Tate, with
staff surveying the lands, work-

PBCC welcomes new provost


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Last week,
as she settled into her new posi-
tion as Provost of the Belle
Glade Campus of Palm Beach
Community College, Dr. Beverly
Robinson confided she liked
what she saw. She knows she
will make a good fit in Belle
Glade.
"I'm very excited," Dr. Robin-
son said in her office last week.
"When I drove around, I knew
this was me."
Preparing for her career here,
Dr. Robinson already has a num-
ber of goals she said she would
like to see the campus reach -
goals that will continue to make
the campus an invaluable tool in
the community.
Dr. Robinson is no stranger
to colleges.


Her most recent job was as
associate vice president of com-
munity development at Central
Florida Com-
munity Col-
lege, where
she also
served as

Health Cen- Beverly
ter. Robinson
She was
an admissions officer and
minority recruitment coordina-
tor for Florida Community Col-
lege and served as director of
the Learning Center and equity
and retention coordinator at
Lake-Sumter Community Col-
lege.


She holds a Ph.D. degree in
education administration from
Columbus University in New
Orleans.
In her doctoral dissertation,
Dr. Robinson picked a unique
subject: Community revitaliza-
tion. She picked a town not
unlike Belle Glade, faced with
similar obstacles, and possess-
ing almost the same demo-
graphics. She sees her disserta-
tion jumping into life here, as
she moves in the direction of
creating a situation where the
community embraces the cam-
pus and both work toward the
advancement of one another.
She communicated that
desire to college officials.

In the Military


Sergio Avalos
Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class
Sergio Avalos, son of Josefina
and Margarito Avalos of Clewis-
ton, Fla., and his fellow ship-
mates returned from a sched-
uled deployment while assigned
to the amphibious assault ship
USS Kearsarge, home-ported in
Norfolk, Va. Avalos' unit con-
ducted Maritime Security Opera-
tions (MSO) for the U.S. 5th Fleet
and Theater Security Coopera-
tion for the U.S. 6th Fleet while
assigned to the Kearsarge Expe-
ditionary Strike Group.
MSO sets the conditions for
security and stability in the mar-
itime environment and comple-
ments the counter-terrorism and
security efforts of regional
nations. It further denies interna-
tional terrorists use of the mar-
itime environment as venue for
attack or to transport personnel,
weapons or other material.
These operations pressurize the
maritime environment by using
coalition ships to detect, deter


and deny illegal use of high seas.
USS Kearsarge supports
amphibious assault operations
using Landing Craft Air Cush-
ions, which are specially-
designed Hovercraft that travel
above land and sea surfaces to
deliver vehicles and equipment.
The ship also has conventional
landing craft and helicopters
embarked, and is equipped with
medical facilities staffed by Navy
dentists, nurses and corpsmen.
Avalos is a 2002 graduate of
Clewiston High School of
Clewiston, Fla. and joined the
Navy in July 2002.
Eduardo E. Davila
Eduardo E. Davila, son of
Hilda P. Davila of Moore Haven,
Fla., recently completed U.S.
Navy basic training at Recruit
Training Command, Great
Lakes, I11.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Davila completed a variety
of training, which included
classroom study and practical
instruction on naval customs,


first aid, firefighting, water safety
and survival, and shipboard and
aircraft safety. An emphasis was
also placed on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations". This
exercise gives recruits the skills
and confidence they need to
succeed in the fleet. "Battle Sta-
tions" is designed to galvanize
the basic warrior attributes of
sacrifice, dedication, teamwork
and endurance in each recruit
through the practical application
of basic Navy skills and the0
core values of Honor, Courage
and Commitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed to
take into account what it means
to be a Sailor.

Which is better: Treadmill or outdoors walk?


This week, a reader posed the
question, "Which is better for
you, walking outdoors or using a
treadmill?"
Some online research indi-
cates there is no easy answer to
that question because so much
depends on your personal cir-
cumstances.
There are some advantages to
walking outside, including:
It's free. There is no invest-
ment in exercise equipment.
You don't have to go home to
exercise. You can take a break and
take a walk, wherever you are.
Walking outdoors may be
more interesting than using a
treadmill. The outdoors provides
a variety of things to see.
If you have a place to walk
that is away from the traffic, you
get some fresh air.
You can vary the pace of
your walk to suit your mood,
without having to worry about
setting controls on a machine.
You can easily take a break when


A

Life


with Katrina Elsken

you want to.
If you live in town, you can
combine walking with our activi-
ties, by walking to the store or
walking to the movie theater.
Walking saves money
because the only fuel it con-
sumes is the calories you burn.
Treadmills also have their
advantages:
With a treadmill, you can
walk day or night. You don't have
to miss your walk if it is dark or
raining by the time you get home.
A treadmill gives you a con-
sistent workout. You can monitor
how fast you walk and for how


long.
You can use a treadmill and
watch television at the same time
so you don't have to miss a
favorite program.
You can control the temper-
ature of your home, so you don't
have to worry about getting over-
heated while walking in the Flori-
da heat.
Using a treadmill indoors
means you don't have to worry
as much about mosquitoes, dogs
and other outdoor nuisances.
Outdoor surfaces may be
uneven, making it easier to trip
and fall.
If you get too tired to contin-
ue your workout on a treadmill,
you are already home. If you tire
out in the middle of an outdoor
walk, you may have to call some-
one to help you.
Which is the best choice for
you? The important thing is not
so much how or where you exer-
cise, but that you exercise.
Choose the exercise that you will


stick with. Some people compro-
mise. On nice days, they walk
outdoors. On rainy days, they use
the treadmill. The key is the exer-
cise regularly, that is, at least five
times a week.
Before making any changes to
your diet or exercise plan, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy".

Correction
Editor's note: In the Oct. 13
edition of the Clewiston News,
Glades County Democrat, and
The Sun, a birth announcement
of the Came triplets was released.
According to new information,
this release may have been pre-
Sented to us with malicious
intent. Therefore, we withdraw
the birth announcement of the
Came triplets until the truth can
be verified.

Submitted to INI/Mali Chamness
First Bank President & CEO Miller Couse receives industry's
highest award.

Clewiston banker is


banker of the year


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Bankers Association has-chosen
First Bank President & CEO Miller
Couse Banker of the Year. He
accepted the Florida banking
industry's highest honor during the
association's annual convention
last month.
The awards ceremony began
with a video presentation illustrat-
ing Couse's distinguished banking
career.
The FBA endeavors to keep the
Banker of the Year a secret until the
annual meeting when a video is
introduced. The association also
includes the winner's family mem-
bers, close friends and colleagues
in the production. Once the video
began and Couse saw his photo on
screen, he could hardly believe he
had been chosen.
"I was overwhelmed by the
honor. As the video played, I could-
n't believe how many people were
involved in this and kept avery good
secret," said Couse. "Around here
word travels pretty quickly and I
was just completely amazed that
my wife, children, closest friends,
business partners and bank col-
leagues were able to pull this off."
Each year the FBA Executive
Committee selects a Banker of the
Year who has given himself/herself
unselfishly to improving the bank-
ing industry and his/her communi-
ty. Couse was selected as the 2005
Banker of the Year because of his
outstanding service and involve-
ment in his community, his dedica-
tion to the continued success of


banking, his commitment to con-
veying the value of banking to the
public, and his reputation for excel-
lence and distinguished achieve-
ment within the banking industry.
Couse has been particularly
active in the association over the
past year and has helped the FBA
with one of the biggest issues fac-
ing the banking industry in recent
years. Couse and the FBA have
worked hard to raise awareness
about the industry's concerns over
the lack of clear and consistent fed-
eral guidelines on the Bank Secrecy
Act (BSA) and Patriot Act, especial-
ly as they relate to money services
businesses (MSB's).
"We've made tremendous
noise on this issue, and I believe
we've helped a lot of people in
Washington understand how these
unclear and inconsistent rules are
putting a strain on the relationship
many bankers have with their cus-
tomers, especially 'mom & pop'
businesses," said Couse. "Change
takes time in Washington but we're
moving in the right direction and
making progress."
The First Bank is headquartered
in Clewiston and has two offices
there.
Additional branches are located
in LaBelle and Riverdale.
The independently owned com-
munity bank with assets of $170
million has been helping meet the
financial needs of the residents of
Hendry, Glades and Lee County
since 1922.


Palm Beach County's


first black college


WEST PALM BEACH For
the first time since Roosevelt
Junior College closed 40 year
ago, former students, faculty
and staff are holding a reunion.
They plan to go beyond remi-
niscing to embark upon the first
major effort to preserve the
school's legacy and its historical
connection to Palm Beach Com-
munity College.
The Roosevelt Junior College
Reunion Luncheon will take
place at 11:30 a.m. Oct. 29 at the
National Croquet Center in West
Palm Beach. It will include
remarks by a representative of
each of the graduating classes
and an address by Walter Smith,
a former Florida A&M University
president and author of the book
"The Magnificent 12: Florida's
Black Junior Colleges."
Roosevelt Junior College,
Palm Beach County's first col-
lege for blacks, opened in 1958
in West Palm Beach, four years
after the U.S. Supreme Court
decision Brown vs. Board of
Education ruled segregated
schools unconstitutional. It was
one of 12 colleges around the
state that opened for blacks after
the Supreme Court ruling.
It was wrapping up its sev-
enth academic year when the
Board of Public Instruction for
Palm Beach County voted to
close the school at the end of the
1964-1965 academic year and
send the students to then Palm
Beach Junior College. The Board
of Public Instruction had begun
to integrate the county's
schools. Some people, however,
unsuccessfully pushed for Roo-
sevelt Junior College to remain
open as a branch of Palm Beach
Junior College rather than close.
By many accounts, Roosevelt


Junior College was an educa-
tional and cultural pillar in the
community, creating opportuni-
ties for black students in Palm
Beach County who couldn't
afford to go away to college or
were denied admission to other
institutions. Palm Beach Junior
College had begun integration
only sparingly in 1963.
To comnmemnorate the 40th
anniversary of the closing of the
school, a PBCC committee has
been meeting with former Roo-
sevelt Junior College students,
faculty and staff to ensure that
what remains of Roosevelt
Junior College's history the
memories, the yearbooks, the
pictures and other memorabilia
- is properly preserved and
woven into that of Palm Beach
Community College. They decid-
ed to hold the reunion to pull
together as many former stu-
dents and faculty together as
possible to gain more input on
how best to keep the school's
legacy alive.

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 single most etTective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. This is why, in re ogniti,i of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograms for a
special discounted rate of $60 throughout the month of October.

For fitrther information or to schedule
your mammogram please call, 561-996-6571, ext. 460.
Patieur must pay cash, check or charge at th time of miamnmoram.

OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, October 20, 2005


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Belle Glade/South Bay issues blog at http://newsblog.info/0901.
It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and
share your comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please).
You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at 996-6636. Comments will be published in the newspa-
per as space permits.
NOT GETTING THE RIGHT INFORMATION: Well the city of Belle
Glade's employee's longevity pay is still drawing interest not to the
benefit of the employees, but once again to the benefit of the city -
not unusual. Once again the money rightfully due to each employee is
not given to the so-called "greatly deserving employees" as manage-
ment so deems they are! Management has graciously given employees
a one-percent raise (in the lower paid employees it means pennies), in
the management pocket it means ($$, dollars), and in addition,
employees were informed that their insurance would be raised 20 per-
cent, where will they see their gracious one percent. Once again, thank
you management for looking out for your employees. Second issue,
one of our gracious commissioners stated that he wishes to give a
three-percent raise to all police officers (ONLY!). Mind you that man-
agement, all employees, an the community agrees that our policemen
need to be compensated for their hard work, but once again, manage-
ment has not given out the right information. What about the other
employees? Are they not considered? Are they not part of the overall
team? Seems to me that once again, management is not recognizing
ALL EMPLOYEES! Please advise if the working staff can also look for-
ward to a three percent added to their one percent, which will mean a
TRUTHFUL four percent to every employee?

I KNOW YOU CAN: To Chief Dowdell. You are the best policeman
and best detective on the force. Now you are chief. You are doing all
right. You can be the best chief, I know you can. Keep your head on
straight. Watch your back. Your enemies are still at you. This is from
someone who cares. You can be the best again.

TO PERMIT OR NOT TO PERMIT: I have a question that maybe the
mayor or the city manager in Pahokee would like to answer. There are
a few new businesses coming into town. They need to get all the per-
mits necessary, like everyone does. They are supposed to posted on
the door. A lot of us have noticed (some businesses don't have any). I
wonder if those permits were ever issued?

Editor's note: We had several calls pertaining to the Belle Glade
Marina and the subsequent missing funds. We are making headway
in our investigation and ask our readers for a little more patience, as
this situation is a delicate one. Rest assured that The Sun staff will not
rest until the truth is told and no one is above the law in our eyes.


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello, my
name is Vince. I have a 22-year
old orange cat named Joey. Joey
has been an in and out cat his
entire life. Should I make Joey an
inside cat considering his age?
And, how long do cats live? I'm 97
myself, and am very happy to say
I'm in and out just as much as
Joey. He's my buddy, and I want
to provide the best I can for him.
Thanks, Vince and Joey in
Lake Worth.
A: Hello Vince! Sounds like
you and Joey are quite the pair,
and congratulations on having
vivacious lives! I'm one to advo-
cate keeping cats indoors for safe-
ty and protection, however Joey is
an exception. I think a happy
lifestyle is more important here.
Should we change Joey's lifestyle
at age 22? I think he will get
depressed. So try to keep him
safe, while at the same time let
him do what makes him happy.
Make sure your veterinarian
checks him out every six months
and feed him a healthy diet rich in
omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins
A, E, and C. How long do cats
live? Well, better ask Joey!
Live long and prosper Vince
and Joey! Best Wishes, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it true
that cat's get heartworms too? Bo,
in Belle Glade.
A: Hey Bo. Yes they do! All cats


should be-kept on-monthly heart-
worm prevention. My favorite
choice for cats is Revolution, and
for dogs Heartgiard. They get
heartworms the same way dogs
do, via mosquitoes. Dogs usually
get many worms in the heart,
where cats usually only get one or
two. In either case it very serious.
There is a safe treatment for dogs,
but no current treatment avail-
able for cats. So keep those cats
on a monthly prevention pro-
gram.
Take care Bo, Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com, and check
out your answers weekly in The
Pet Corner. Be sure to tune into
The Savvy vet Show each Thurs-
day at 10:30 a.m. on 93.5 The Big
Dawg.


Community Profile: Lee Sutterfield


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

Q: What is your name?
A: My name is Lee Sutterfield.
Q: Where were you bom?
A: I was born in West Palm
Beach, Florida. I came to the
Glades when I was nine years
old. My father was a pastor at a
church and we were sent out
here to pastor the church and we
grew up here. This is a wonderful
place to live.
Q: What do you do?
A: I work for the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, I'm a
deputy sheriff. I've been here for
13 years. I have the pleasure of
working with the young people in
our community, I run the explor-
er program and the junior explor-
er program. They're exploring
the field of law enforcement.
They learn about the criminal
justice system as a whole. They
learn how to get involved in their
community and how to give back
to the community. They are Red
Cross volunteers in the event that
we have any type of natural disas-
ter or hurricane. They are very
good kids, I'm proud of them.
Q:Why?
A: I enjoy working with the
community and with the youth
and I enjoy watching them grow
up to be successful.
(Q: Had you always known
that you wanted to be in law
enforcement?) No, I actually
worked for the Sun Newspaper
for eight years before coming
here. I was the circulation man-
ager and then I became the office
manager. Then I got involved
with the sheriff's office. There's a
lot of differences, but there's a lot
of similarities as well.
When I first came to the sher-
iff's office I worked as a dispatch-
er. Yeah, I had thought maybe I
made a mistake by leaving the
newspaper where I worked with
the community.
I worked inside of a small
room in dispatch and that's a very


INI/Jose Zaragoza
Lee Sutterfield
important job and it takes a very
special type of person to do that
job, but I'm more of an outdoors
person. I want to talk to people,
be involved in the community.
Sitting in a chair, that really was
not for me. I'm happy now. It's
just been a wonderful opportuni-
ty.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
How would your family describe
you?
A: Very caring. Very giving.
Always doing things for others
and helping the community by
going above and beyond. I have
always said if I can help just one
child and make a difference in
their life and keep them off the
path of drugs and destruction,
keep them out of the jailhouses
and have them grow up to be
successful, then I haven't lived
my life in vain. That's kind of the
motto I live by.
I've watched the kids grow
through the program. We help
them with scholarship monies
and we send them off to college.
We've had some of them come
back. We have one here who
works as a dispatcher. We have
two of them who are in the mili-
tary. We have one -that is in the
nursing program, she's finishing
up her four years of college. I'm
very proud of them.
They come back and let me
know through the years what
they're doing and how they're
doing. They come back and
thank me.
The explorers compete on a


state level and a national level.
We just came back in July from
Honolulu, Hawaii. They went
over there and they competed.
It's very rewarding to sit back and
watch how professional they are.
They represent the Glades.
Q: What scares you?
A: I don't fear anything. No I
don't. I take one day at a time. I
trust in the Lord and move on.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: I Believe I Can Fly. It's inspi-
ration. I have faith in these kids, I
believe they can do whatever
they want to do.
Q: What irks you?
A: (Q: Can you get angry?) Oh
yes, I can get very angry. I guess
violence against children and our
elderly. That really upsets me. I
get very angry. Children and your
elderly population, when they fall
victim to violent crimes, it's sad.
There are a lot of cruel people in
the world.
Q: What do you do in your
spare time?
A: I don't really have a lot of
spare time. I'm working on my
Master's Degree so I'm in college
once a week on an accelerated
program. I'm also working on my
A.A. Degree in Palm Beach Com-
munity College. I guess it's more
for personal reasons that I'm
studying. My brother used to
work for the Palm Beach Com-
munity College as an academic
advisor. I promised him that I
would eventually go back. Of
course he passed away.
Q: What memory do you hold
dear to you?
A: My brother definitely. John.
He was a wonderful person. He
was paralyzed from the waist
down. He had a swimming acci-
dent back in the 1980s. He went
on to get his high school diploma
and then his Bachelor's Degree in
Psychology.
Q: What do you remember
most when you think about him?
A: Encouragement. He's the
only brother I had, he was an


older brother.
Q: Do you remember when
you heard the news that he had
been hurt?
A: The day the call went out, I
was working but I was in an
unmarked vehicle, I didn't have a
radio. I didn't hear the call go out.
He left the college that day and
went onto State Road 715 from
the college. At that point, we're
not sure what happened but the
van went into the little pond right
in front of the Dolly Hand Center.
The best that we can tell is that he
passed out. He had a little bit of
heart damage, is what the autop-
sy showed. It's possible he
passed out.
I wasn't on site when it [van]
went in. My oldest son had called
me and told me his uncle wasn't
home yet. My brother always
called and said he was heading
home. It had been about 30 or 40
minutes, he should have been
home.
I started toward the college
and realized there was an acci-
dent. I came up to the scene and
saw the van in the water and I
knew.
At that time, Corporal Padgett
was on site. I recognized the van
and asked him if he was dead. I
told him, "Tell me the truth." Cor-
poral Padgett told me it didn't
look good. He took my keys from
me and drove me to the hospital.
They worked on him.
Q: How difficult was that
moment?
A: Oh, it was very hard
because, I guess I do it for a living,
death notices and different things.
You don't think about it as being
one of your own that you have to
deliver the death notice to.
I guess the hardest thing is that
the doctor first tells me and then
it was up to me to tell them.
That was the hardest thing,
trying to figure out how to tell
your mother you couldn't save
the only brother that you had ...
that was hard.


Letters to the Editor


Rising fuel prices to
impact electricity cost
Dear editor:
The rapid rise in the cost of oil
has dominated headlines for sev-
eral months, and the impact is
being felt in many areas of our
daily lives, most notably at the fuel
pump. Most businesses, from gro-
cery and department stores to
delivery services and landscapers,
are also faced with these rising
costs, and are forced to pass high-
er costs along to consumers.
The increases in gasoline
prices are only part of the story.
Since 1999, the cost of natural gas
has also skyrocketed, by more
than 600 percent. Consider that
all of Florida's utilities use natural
gas for a significant part of their
generation, and you can see how
rising fuel costs are impacting
your electricity bill as well, Florida
uses natural gas for nearly 40 per-
cent of its electric generation.
Florida's municipal electric


utilities, including the city of
Moore Haven, work constantly to
minimize the effect rising costs
have on customers' bills. But
despite their best efforts, no utility
- large or small, public or private -
can absorb the kind of skyrocket-
ing costs we have seen in recent
years.
The, causes of these increases
are many, but for the most part
fuel prices have increased due to
limited supplies in the United
States along with increased
demand worldwide. As the Gulf
Coast picks up the pieces follow-
ing Hurricanes Katrina and Rita,
the cost of fuel may fluctuate even
more because of the temporary
closing of refineries affected by
the storms.
It is important for you to know
that electric utilities do not make
any profit on the cost of fuel.
Rather, the price a utility pays for
fuel is passed through to cus-
tomers at cost. The local utility
doesn't keep a dime.
You can help too. I encourage


you to contact your local public
power utility to learn more about
energy conservation programs
and how you can control the
costs of your monthly electricity
bill. You can also check out
www.publicpower.con/save_en
ergy.html for energy conservation
tips.
Please be assured that public
power providers are doing every-
thing in their power to minimize
the impact on customers and are
taking every necessary action to
continue providing you with the
best service possible.
Sincerely,
Barry Moline
Executive Director Florida
Municipal Electric Association

Sooner or later, the storm is coming


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
For years that little church sat
there looking strong as sturdy
as a brick house, so to speak.
When the storm came, howev-
er, it revealed
a weakness in
the construc-
tion no one
had ever
noticed. "How
can a storm
tear the bricks
away from a
church like
that?" the pas- PastorJohn
tor asked his Hicks
two builder
parishioners. "Look here," one
of them said. A quick inspection
showed that the workers who
constructed St. Bernard Church
had not tied the masonry to the
wood structure of the building.
The metal ties were there,
but it was a rare one that was
fixed into the masonry. I said,
"How can you be sure the work-
ers are tying your brick and your
house together?" They both
answered, "Be there and watch
it done. Or know your contrac-
tor."
Another churchbuilding,
constructed in the late 1800s
and on the National Historic
Register, is a lovely tall wood-
frame structure with a bell
tower reaching up several sto-
ries. A visiting church group last
summer took an entire week to
repaint the building. The storm.
battered against the church so
badly, one side of the tower liter-
ally blew out. Upon inspection,
one of the builder parishioners
took note: "There is your prob-
lem. Rotten timbers from the
leaks in the ceiling, and ter-
mites." The wood was so weak-


ened, the stress from the storm
broke it.
One church member com-
mented, "I suppose this devel-
ops our character." Someone
else said, "Rather it reveals it."
That's the point. Storms and
stresses of life uncover the
masks and camouflages and
defenses we so carefully con-
struct, leaving the real "us"
exposed to the world. Who you
are under great stress is the real
you. For good or for bad.
There's a sermon here. Life's
storms do not cause the weak-
nesses they reveal them.
That's why the good times,
when we're well and the chil-
dren are behaving and the bills
are paid, are the times to make
sure of the solid construction of
our lives, our faith, our relation-
ship with the Lord. Because,
sooner or later, the storm is
coming.
NOTE: Many of us in our
community have reached out in
special ways to help those in the
Gulf Coast weather their storm.
Following is a note from a pastor
at hurricane ground zero: "I'm
just one person down here in
New Orleans, but perhaps I can
speak for many of our people
when I say to the people of God
everywhere: Thank you; you've
done an incredible job. God's
people all over this nation have
literally knocked themselves out
taking in our dispersed citizens,
without the first consideration to
color or class or condition, and
have showed them the love of
Jesus Christ.
"The wind of Katrina blew
apart the Wind of Heaven is
bringing together. While the
winds of Katrina were indeed a
destroying force on the Gulf
Coast, the Wind of Heaven is
mobilizing God's people to min-


ister and love, to give and to
serve. God's people are laboring
alongside one another without
checking each other's orthodoxy
or brand label. A Baptist church
and non-denominational down
the street has teamed up with us
to serve our neighborhood. In
our kitchen cooking meals and


under the tent handing out sup-
plies, you will find a full array of
Christian denominations.
"The wind of Katrina tore
down the Wind of Heaven is
building up. There is more min-
istry going on in this area in the
name of Jesus than ever before.
Praise to our God!"

Ordinance could
restrict where sexual
offenders reside
By Patty Brant
LABELLE The cities of
LaBelle and Clewiston, along with
Hendry County, are being asked to
adopt an ordinance that would fur-
ther restrict convicted sexual pred-
ators and offenders.
The proposed ordinance would
regulate where these convicted
felons may reside.
Public hearings will be set to
consider the ordinance.
Currently, convicted sexual
offenders just register with the local
law enforcement agency when
they arrive in a new jurisdiction
and the authorities check on them
periodically. Although they are
restricted from areas where chil-
dren congregate, there is no restric-
tion where they can live.
The new ordinance would cre-
ate zones 2,500 feet around loca-
tions where children regularly con-
gregate in concentrated numbers.
Those zones include schools, bus
stops, day care centers, parks, play-
grounds, etc. Convicted sexual
offenders would be prohibited
from temporary or permanent resi-
dence in those areas.
The ordinance would cover
both purchase and rental of a resi-
dence by these categories of felons.
The ordinance would also pro-
hibit landlords from knowingly
renting to convicted sexual offend-
ers.


These convicted felons would
also be prevented from using pub-
lic shelters during times of disaster.
They would, instead, be housed at
the county jail during times of
emergency. In Hendry County, that
would probably be in the first
appearance room at the sheriff's
office.
Penalties include a fine up to
$500 or imprisonment for up to 60
days or both for a first offense.
Penalties for subsequent offenses
include fines up to $1,000 and/or
jail time up to 12 months.
The ordinance would not apply
to a sexual offender who estab-
lished their permanent residence
prior to Sept. 1,2005 or if they were
a minor when they committed the
offense and were not convicted as
an adult. It would also not apply if a
school, bus stop or day care was
opened after they had established
their permanent residence.
The ordinance cites a high rate
of recidivism for released sexual
offenders as a prime reason to cre-
ate the zones. Sheriff Lee said he
became aware of the ordinance,
which is in effect in several other
counties, and decided to bring it to
the county's attention.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said it is
important that local governments
enact this ordinance. He noted that
there are 37 convicted sexual
offenders currently living in Hendry
County and one predator. Five of
those are incarcerated: One preda-
tor (John Harjo) and four offenders
in jail (Angel Hidalgo, Alfredo
Mulero, Roosevelt Roberts and Jef-
frey Alan Young).

The store in eastern Okeechobee


By Katerine Worth
As told to MaryAnn Morris
My husband's parents, Enoch E.
Worth and Ada Adkinson Worth
came to Okeechobee in August of
1924. "Granny" Worth bought land
in her own name, two lots, in River-
side Addition in East Okeechobee
from D.R. McNeill and his wife Car-
rie in February, 1924. This was the
lot at the corner of Florida Avenue
and Park Street, on the south side.
Grandpa built them a house there.
His cousin Kenneth Worth came
down to help build the house. He
must have liked it here, because he
stayed and he built the crypts at
Evergreen Cemetery.
They bought more land in River-
side Addition, Lots 3 and 4, in 1925,
this time on the north side of Park
Street at the corner of the street that
went up into Cypress Quarters. I
think it was across Park Street from
where the Spanish meat market is
now, two streets down from W&W
Lumber.
Many of the workers from Sher-
man's sawmill lived there, up in
Cypress Quarters, and Grandpa
knew they needed a place to shop,
so he built a combination dry
goods and grocery store and filling
station. It was a two-story building
with a rooming house on the sec-
ond floor.
The filling station had the gravity
pumps, where they'd pump the
gas up into a clear chamber, and
then it would flow. down into your
car. Mama said she remembered
the Indians coming in to buy the
rickrack and fabric to make their
clothes from her and when they
passed by on their way to the yearly
green corn dance, the women
would come in and buy their sup-


plies from grandpa.
I remember mama telling about
crossing the Kissimmee River in
grandpa's truck. There were
boards or timbers laid across for
your tires to ride on and while they
were crossing one of the tires
slipped off and the truck got stuck.
Grandpa had to walk two miles
before he came to a tree he could
cut down to take back and leverage
the truck back up.
There used to be a big fish camp
at the Kissimmee where S.R. 78
crosses the river. The county is
building a park there now, but back
then it was a popular spot for
camping and fishing.
When I was a young woman,
my mamma and I would come
over to Okeechobee to fish. We'd
always stay in one of the little cab-
ins at Taylor Creek Lodge and fish.
We did love to fish. Where you see
Cypress and Guava trees around
the lake, that's where the lake used
to be in high water. Even now,
that's the only place those trees will
grow.
There was a company from
Bradenton that would come over
and pay folds 25 cents for a five-gal-
lon bucket of guavas back then.
There's still some guava trees if you
knowwhere to look for them.

When my husband, Fred was a little boy they lived here in
Okeechobee. Fred and his mamma are standing by the fami-
ly car. This would be sometime in the 1920s.

Crist brings focus


to home violence


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist recog-
nized the Florida Coalition
Against Domestic Violence for
its efforts to protect Florida's cit-
izens who are threatened at
home. During a meeting of the
Florida Cabinet, Crist also intro-
duced a resolution designating
October as Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, reminding
Floridians of the importance of
fighting this crime.
Crist also praised the efforts
of Governor Jeb Bush and First
Lady Columba Bush for their
work and dedication to eradi-
cate domestic violence.
Under the leadership of Gov-
ernor Bush, Florida became the
first state to allocate capital
grants for domestic violence
shelters. Since 1999, Mrs. Bush
has been a strong advocate for
victims' rights, particularly
domestic violence.
"During Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, I urge Florid-
ians to reach out to domestic
violence victims and let them
know that help is available,"-
said Crist. "Domestic violence is
a crime that must be stopped,
and there are things that each
one of us can do to help. With
dedication and education, we
can increase safety for thou-
sands of our citizens and bring
hope to Floridians suffering at
the hands of someone the vic-
tim once trusted."
According to the annual
crime figures for 2004, the num-
ber of reported domestic vio-
lence offenses decreased 0.8
-percent in Florida, and arrests
for these crimes decreased 1.5
percent from 2003. However,


more than 119,000 incidents of
domestic violence were report-
ed, including 184 murders.
The Florida Coalition Against
Domestic Violence offers a toll-
free domestic violence hotline
(1-800-500-1119) and serves as
the professional association for
Florida's 41 domestic violence
centers, which serve 67 coun-
ties across Florida. The Coali-
tion also maintains a resource
library of books, periodicals,
and videos regarding domestic
violence issues.
In March 2004, Crist joined
with the Coalition to launch an
initiative targeted to help victims
of domestic violence through
education and awareness. "Cut
Out Domestic Violence" pro-
vides information and training
to employees of more than
8,000 licensed hair salons in the
state of Florida. The ongoing
program teaches hair stylists,
cosmetologists and nail techni-
cians the nature and signs of
domestic violence, including
what to listen for and how to
put victims in touch with the
appropriate resources and
authorities.
For those professionals inter-
ested in receiving the training,
they may call the Domestic Vio-
lence Hotline in order to be
scheduled for training in their
area. Crist is also the national
spokesperson for a program
called Safety Net, a national
effort to expand the use of high-
tech tools to improve safety for
survivors of domestic violence.
Victims of domestic violence
are urged to call Florida's
domestic violence hotline at
(800) 500-1119.


CLEWISTON The first new
year meeting for the Green
Thumbs Garden Club was held
Sept. 20 at the ranch home of
Sandy Stitt with 18 members and
four guests attending.
New president Linda Parker
presided at the meeting at which
time various activities were dis-
cussed with the four young mid-
dle school members who had
attended Camp Wekiva giving
their reports. Clint Drake and
Jason Reese were the boys'
.camp attendees and gave high-
Jights they thought wrp,. most
interesting, including survival
techniques in the wilderness and
camping away from camp for
part of the time.
The girls, Jade Sandeli and
Lisa Walker, were the girls
attending and they talked about
highlights of "Learning to Care
for Our Environment Because
Sometime it Might not There",
the theme for this year, and they
elaborated on their camp assign-
ments, canoeing, swimming,
and especially the crafts they
learned. The girls wrote personal
thank-you notes and made craft
gifts for club members. Each stu-
dent expressed how much
attending camp meant to them
and indicated they would like to
go again.
Sandy Stitt gave a report on
the status of landscaping the
Clewiston Museum. She report-
ed that the parking lot, irrigation
for the new plants, sidewalks,
etc., are near completion. She
expressed appreciation to Eddie
Crosby for not only loaning a


palm to the committee, but for
bringing it to the museum to pre-
pare one of the pots so the city
commissioners could see what
they will look like. They
approved landscaping the muse-
um and is a joint project
between Green Thumbs and
Clewiston Garden Club. The city
has been very cooperative in
providing the manpower for
most of the work.
Vickie Austin gave out new
year books, which were very
impressive. Coming events were
discussed.
Cathy Hilliard expressed con-
cern that she and other garden
club members have concerning
the recent tree trimming by the
city, especially on the palm trees.
She and Christine Howell con-
tacted Hendry County extension
agent for the proper way to trim
the tress. They will give the infor-
mation to city manager for their
guidance.
In other business, Janet Sum-
merlin presented a bag of neat
gifts for each member to have.
Sandy Stitt gave a tour of her
pond being located on the west
side of her house, citing her
plans for appropriate landscap-
ing of the area, which looks to be
beautiful. Emily Drake brought
tuna fish cans to b delivered to
districts representatives for mak-
ing table decorations for Nation-
al conference centerpieces for
next year in Orlando. A lovely
bouquet of roses was presented
to outgoing president Sue Phelps
by new president Linda Parker.
October meeting will be held

School Happenings


Glades Day School

Homecoming
The students of Glades Day
School were full of excitement last
week during Spirit Week. The Stu-
dent Council had planned dress-up
days that allowed the kids to have a
break from the uniform code as
long as they stuck to the theme for
the day. Tuesday was a sleepy day
because everyone showed up in
their Pajamas!
It looked like the Beach at GDS
on Wednesday, and favorite sports
team attire was all the rage on
Thursday. Of course, the halls were
filled with green and gold on Friday,
Spirit Day. The Gators played the St.
John Neumann Celtics and for the
first time, the whole high school
wore matching T-shirts to show
that they were behind Glades Day
all the way.
The Student Council activities at
the end of each day had the 7th-
12th classes competing for the cov-
eted "Skip Day". The first competi-
tion on Tuesday was the Lip Sync
Contest won by the 8th grade with
"Stomp" and the seniors with
"Lunch Lady Land", followed by
the Sports Relay on Wednesday
won by the 8th, 10th, and llth
'grades, and the crowd favorite Miss
GDS contest on Thursday won by

Hispanic Heritage
Month
As away of celebrating "Hispan-
ic Heritage Month" (Sept. 15-Oct.
15), students, teachers, and parents
at Gove Elementary participated in
numerous activities highlighting our
diverse Hispanic culture. Each day,
during morning announcements, a
Latin American country was intro-
duced. Students learned about the
history, geography, economy, major
cities, etc. of each country. They
were also exposed to songs, dances
and national anthem of the given
country during their vocal music
class and the country's flag was dis-
played in the front of the school.
The students were also encour-
aged to participate in the Third
Annual Hispanic Heritage Essay
Contest sponsored by Governor
Jeb Bush and First Lady Columba
Bush and the "Pachanga Latin Fqst"
Poster Contest sponsored by
Chrysler Jeep and the Palm Beach
. County Library System. The Dept.
of Multicultural Education provided
teachers with an activity packet full
of resources for them to use in their
classrooms and provided parents
with the opportunity to attend the
upcoming Hispanic Heritage Night
for Parents at Okeeheelee Middle
School Oct. 27.
During our recent Parents are

A+ training, participants were
entertained by Mrs. Neris-Lopez
and Mrs. Chancey's first grade
classes with their rendition of
"Shake It, Morena, Shake It!" Stu-
dents in Mrs. Reyes' third grade
class have been very busy learning
about Latin American countries
and have assembled great projects
with the knowledge gained. The
projects will be on display in the
Media Center throughout the
month of October. As a culminating
activity, the students will be per-
forming at our upcoming SAC
meeting Oct. 20. Hope you can join
us in celebrating the richness of the
Hispanic culture.

is not responsive to the needs of
the city, the chief said.
At concerns that the police
department is at the present time
not able to adequately meet the
community's service require-
ments, the chief said, "People
shouldn't be afraid. We are there
to handle the job. We may have
been slow to respond, but we are
working diligently through that."
He points to other problems
happening at the department,
one of which includes a number
of officers he said who have taken
to fighting amongst each other
and have put a bad face on the
department in the community.
The internal strife is clearly evi-
dent, he said, and while some of
the officers causing the turmoil
are clearly unhappy working
there, they refuse to leave. "I don't
sugarcoat it, I tell it like it is," said
Chief Dowdell last week. "Some
people are dissatisfied. If the offi-
cers stop bickering and they do
what they have to do for the rea-
son they chose to..."
He said the department has
historically had a very small per-
centage of its officers living in the
area. Without a stake in the com-
munity, he feels some of the offi-
cers have grown to disregard tak-
ing a more pro-active approach to
changing the community. "It's dif-

With a majority vote of

nance was approved at the Oct.

interview process. "I'm truly on a
mission here," Dr. Robinson told
PBCC President Dr. Dennis Gallon
at that time. "I'm going to be Mis-
sionary Baptist' with you for a
moment, I'm looking at this as a
mission trip."
Dr. Robinson told college offi-
cials that her job as provost will
see her focusing on three key
areas. Her first goal will be to
increase enrollment at the cam-
pus, to hopefully attract more resi-
dents to take advantage of the
education available to them
through the college.

individuals selected to serve on
this volunteer board. Prospec-
tive board members must be
U.S. citizens and at least 18 years

ly employed in any law enforce-
ment occupations, active or
retired members of the Armed
Forces and have ever been con-
victed of criminal offenses.

fielp needed for
hurricane victims
American Legion Post 20 is
accepting non-perishable items
for the victims of Hurricane Kat-
rina. If you would like to help by


ficult for people who don't live
here," he said. "'After 12 hours I
get my check, why should I
care?'"
The lack of amenities, cultural
and social, throughout the com-
munity makes it even easier for
the officers to leave, the chief said.
"I would love to have a force pre-
dominately from the communi-
ty," Chief Dowdell said. It's the
same way throughout the Glades,
he said.
According to the chief, he now
works closely with Glades Day
School and will approach Glades
Central to reach children in pro-
grams geared toward law
enforcement, that as a result a
number of those students will
consider joining the department
after graduation.
The reality, though, is that the
department must continue to hire
candidates as they come, whether
they are residents or not. But offi-
cer retention is a problem for
many departments throughout
the nation, the chief insists,
adding that he refuses to believe
that the problem lies with him.
"Some of these officers will leave
regardless of what we do," he
said.
So how do you compete with
the draws of a larger town, faced
with a seemingly insurmountable
task? You build a family, the chief
said.
One of the chief's plans head-
ing into the next few months is


the annexation area.
The city has prepared and sub-
mitted an annexation report to
the Palm Beach County Board of
Commissioners for their review.
At this early juncture, the pro-
posal has raised the concerns of
at least one city commissioner,
Commissioner Don Garrett, who
worries that the city cannot afford
to extend its services past its cur-
rent limit. To welcome additional
land and residents into the city, he
said, also means that the city will
now assume a higher cost in pro-
viding those services.
"We haven't got the services to
pay for this. We haven't got


A second goal of Dr. Robin-
son's early in her post as provost is
in retaining students. By offering
incentives for the students to
remain, she hopes that the atten-
dance figures will remain strong
throughout the academic year.
The last, not the least of the
focuses, is in creating new pro-
grams aimed at the community,
and what types of programs resi-
dents would like to see offered at
the campus. To that end, Dr.
Robinson will be working toward
surveying the community, as was
done when the campus first
opened years ago, to revise and
update the types of extra pro-
grams the community needs.
Her appointment comes as the
college assumes a new look.

H.O.PE Meetings
Citizens of the city of South
Bay have recently formed a
group called H.O.P.E. "Helping
Others Pursue Equality." This is
due to the monthly increase in
our water and sewer bills and
will decide our course of action.
Meetings are scheduled the first
Wednesday of every month in
the Miracle by Faith Fellowship
Hall, 1035 N.W. 1 Street, South
Bay. Your attendance will make
a difference.

Entertainment
sought
Do you have a special talent
that you'd like to share with the


the installation of a living quarters
for officers who, rather than hav-
ing to head home after a shift and
then return for another, can stay
in the living quarters where they
can either relax, or sleep, or just
stay when the thought of driving
hours back home is not feasible.
He asks the community, busi-
ness owners and residents alike,
to help to support the idea, and
hopefully to donate whatever they
can in making it a reality. Already,
the department has received a
large screen television to accom-
modate the officers while they
stay in the living quarters. The
consideration for living quarters is
not the solution to the problem
entirely, the chief admits. Still, it is
a step in the right direction, he
said.
To build camaraderie and a
family in the police department
means that officers will want to
stay, and would be less likely to
leave if they are content.
To concerned residents, he
offers an assurance that the
department will continue to meet
the needs of the community, and
hopes that the public will take a
pro-active approach to reporting
crime a point he said he makes
as often as possible.
The chief remains hopeful that
the current problem at the depart-
ment will soon be alleviated.
He hopes it will happen soon-
er than later. "We are going to do
whatever it takes," he said.


police. We haven't got garbage.
We haven't got sewer," Commis-
sioner Garrett said. "How are we
going to pay for this?" Commis-
sioner Garrett cast the sole dis-
senting vote for the ordinance on
Tuesday.
In contrast to the concerns,
Commissioner Ray Torres-
Sanchez agrees that it is time the
city moved forward with extend-
ing its boundaries into the new
areas. "Some people wish to keep
the city back to 50 years ago, back
to the Stone Age." he said follow-
ing Commissioner Garrett's com-
ments. "I believe we should move
forward."


There is renovation inside the col-
lege, evident on stepping foot
inside the main hall, as the walls
sport brighter colors and the floors
a cleaner footprint. "The commu-
nity has changed," said the new
provost. "This is a new day."
Three days into her new job,
Dr. Robinson met with :student
leaders at the campus, and views
the meeting as a great indicator of
the success she hopes the college
will enjoy under her leadership. "I
told them to pump up the vol-
ume," Dr. Robinson said. "We're
going to bring the true PBCC spirit
out to the Glades."
Filled with excitement, Dr.
Robinson said passionately,
"We're going to have college over
here."

Charity
Continued From Page 1
In its time as a non-profit
agency, GCDC has directly been
involved in supporting many other
organizations in the Glades to be
successful. The EDGE Center, the
Western Communities Tourism
Alliance, Concerned Youth. for
Community Improvement, Glades
Initiative and Glades Artisans are
among the organizations GCDC
has served as a fiscal agent or fund-
ing conduit for, helping them to
receive grants and other opportuni-
ties.
The organization has also
worked with the Lighthouse Cafe,
which feeds local people free of
charge, Street Beat, Inc., a South
Bay program that involves the chil-
dren of the area in productive les-
sons in the arts, and the First Haitian
Baptist Church Youth and Children
Development Center.
Ms. Moore-Williams especially
remembers GCDC's involvement
with the H.E.A.R.T. Project, an
organization that sought to teach
the importance of AIDS and HIV
education to children in the area.
GCDC helped that program off the
ground, with GCDC supporting the
concept fully.
Another example is the Med-
Mobile, the response to farm work-
ers and laborers who, because of
the condition of their jobs, could
not afford to visit a doctor during
the day, arriving home late at night.
Operating in the late hours, the
med mobile is a vehicle that reach-
es the people who otherwise
would go untreated. Children
receive immunizations. At first,
manned by the Health Department,
the unit is now in the hands of
another organization that contin-
ues its mission.
In the Glades, you could always
count on them to follow through -
whether it was related to the sub-
ject of health or education or unem-
ployment or economic develop-
ment. Somewhere always, behind
the scenes or out on the forefront,
Autrie and her staff got to work and
could be counted on to deliver.
At least, those were the good
times.
Now the organization, always
fighting, hopes it can continue the
fight. With an operating budget of
approximately $175,000 cut severe-
ly short, GCDC is searching for a
way to continue delivering that
same quality service it has in the
past.
Autrie blames it on factors that
the organization is simply not in
control over. "Since 9-11, the
amount of funding coming to indi-
vidual organizations is less and
less," said Ms. Moore-Williams,
who remains thankful to the many


agencies, who over the years pro-
vided for GCDC. "We appreciate
that, but we now need to look with-
in."
Some have stood up to help the
organization, including local
lawyers Thomas Montgomery and
Mamie Washington Kendall who
have both helped in distributing a
letter to local companies asking for
donations of support to keep the
organization active.
In that usual soft voice, Ms.
Moore-Williams asks, "If GCDC is a
value to the community, this is an
opportunity for the community to
step forward."
The organization welcomes any
and all support, whether through
volunteer work to help out at the
office, or through financial means.
Though GCDC has raised approxi-
mately $70,000 in grant funding,
there is still some ways to go, Ms.
Moore-Williams insists.
The organization hopes that the
submission of two applications
recently will provide the grant fund-
ing necessary to operate the corpo-
ration at normal efficiency. "I'm
very hopeful," said Ms. Moore-
Williams. As of this article, they had
not yet heard back from the possi-
ble funding sources.
In the meantime, GCDC contin-
ues operating with a reduced staff.
The duties that previously took
more than a handful to accomplish
now must be carefully ordered
between the two remaining


employees. The pace will continue
until something drastic changes.
Once news arrived that one of
GCDC's largest funding agencies
would no longer be able to provide
monies for the operation of the cor-
poration, the company committed
to staying with its employees to the
very end, ensuring that everyone
had a job before they were let go -
with Autrie personally helping
them in their search. Almost all
who wanted one, found a job.
It is indicative of the mission of
GCDC which is to implement
sustainable solutions for the com-
munity, that the community should
not have to rely on an agency to
sustain itself, but that the communi-
ty will support itself, Ms. Moore-
Williams said. "To see residents
stand up and let their voices be
heard, that's empowerment in the
truest sense of the word."
Though far in that mission, she
feels that GCDC is not there yet.
"Yes, there will be a day when
we give up," said Moore-Williams.
"I hope it's the day when people
will say, 'GCDC, there are no more
issues for you to address.' Wouldn't
that be great? Wouldn't that be
wonderful?"
She looks forward to that day,
but hopes it comes because GCDC
has done its job and not because of
other factors.
And, of course, according to
Autrie, everyday, "It's still a joy to
help people."

Terriers drop fourth straight contest


By Bill Fabian
MOORE HAVEN The Moore
Haven Terriers hosted Evangelical
Christian with hopes that they
could hold a Sentinel team at bay
while keeping their playoff hopes
alive by picking up a district win
and having Glades Day still. left to
play. The Terriers also hoped to
avoid losing their fourth straight
since their lone victory against Hol-
lywood Christian on Sept. 16, but
neither would come to fruition.
However, despite a strong
home field showing and putting up
the second-highest number of
points in a single game this season,
the Terriers could not defend
against the Sentinels who over-
powered the Moore Haven defense
and went home with a 46-20 victo-
ry over the Terriers.
Evangelical Christian (6-2, 1-1)
played patient, deliberate football


during the District A-6 match up,
and were successful in holding
back the Terriers (1-7, 0-2), who
appeared intent upon winning the
key district game Friday.
Evangelical quarterback Colt
Franklin peppered the Terriers' sec-
ondary for 146 yards passing and
three touchdowns. Evangelical
wide out Jarred Duke caught
touchdown passes of 52 and 19
yards and ran for a 10-yard score for
ECS.
The Terriers defense could not
stop the driving ECS offense. On
their first offensive possession, the
Sentinels ran the ball 10 times for
70 yards, culminating in a 25-yard
touchdown burst by running back
Calan Lynch.
Moore Haven responded on the
next drive with a 27-yard touch-
down run by quarterback Rod
Huggins. Barrett Ringstaff's extra-
point attempt was no good, leaving


the Sentinels with a 7-6 lead.
Frustrated by turnovers all sea-
son, the Terriers missed an oppor-
tunity to take the lead after their first
score. ECS's Duke returned the
Moore Haven kickoff 70 yards to
the Terriers' five-yard line before
being dragged down from behind.
Moore Haven's defense stopped
the Sentinels on a fourth-and-goal
at the one-yard line, but ECS recov-
ered a Terriers' fumble on the next
play and capitalized on the error
with a one-yard Ty Turner touch-
down run.
On their next two possessions,
the Sentinels went to the air. A 38-
yard pass from Franklin to Lynch
set up Duke's touchdown run,
which made the score 20-6. A 34-
yard pass to Daniel Lynch set up a
three-yard touchdown pass to tight
end Evan Cooper, which gave the
Sentinels an insurmountable, 27-6
lead.


Brian Lynch said the success of
his team's passing game was a
major reason for its impressive
offensive production.
Moore Haven, which fell to 1-6,
was plagued by a rash of untimely
turnovers and penalties. Nate Kelly
led the Terriers in rushing with 86
yards.
The Terriers will rest this week-
end with a bye, and then will pre-
pare for a district match up Oct. 28
against Glades Day, who were one
of the two teams to beat Evangeli-
cal this year.
Moore Haven's playoff hopes
were dashed, but will likely look
forward to the contest against
Glades Day who has already
secured a playoff appearance. The
Terriers could still play spoiler to the
Gators' bid for the district champi-
onship, as only Moore Haven
stands in the way of a perfect dis-
trict record for the Gators.


Clewiston squeaks their way by Pope John Paul


By Jeff Barwick
BOCA RATON The Clewis-
ton Tigers rallied against an upstart
Pope John Paul II team and came
from behind to win 12-10 in a key
district match up. Tiger tailback
junior Jamal Hubert swept around
the right side for a 14-yard score
with 6:09 remaining in the game to
provide the winning margin.
Hubert had scored the first Tiger
touchdown on a five-yard burst late
in the third period after a scoreless
first half. The victory put the Tigers
at 2-0 in district play and in the dri-
ver's seat for the championship.
The Tigers and the Eagles
entered the game with identical 3-3
overall records, but the Eagles were
1-1 in district play. The game was a
hard hitting event with the Tigers
hurting themselves by losing two
fumbles to kill drives and getting
penalized nine times for 105 yards.
Eagles kicker Alex Ruoff, who
had missed three earlier field goal
attempts finally nailed a 25-yard
attempt to put the Eagles on top 10-
6 in the last minutes of the third-
quarter.
Tiger quarterback John Melton,
subbing for regular starter Jared
Combass who is out for the season

20 carries and Melton added 74
yards on 11 attempts.
The Tiger defense was the dif-
ference in the contest, rising to the
challenge to stop the Eagles on
three deep drives into Tiger territo-
ry, each of which ended in a missed
field goal. Clewiston literally
dodged bullets as all of the
attempts had the distance but were
just slightly off the mark. The
defense had to rise again to thwart
two late Eagle drives and forced
turnovers with fumble recoveries
by Jasper Hunter and Jeremiah
Askew.

"Well, we took an ugly win tonight
and, while a win is a win, I'm still
disappointed in our performance.
We made entirely too many mental
mistakes on blocking assignments

forced those two late fumble
recoveries, it likely would have
been a different outcome."

Gators defeat


St. John Neuman


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE The luck of
the Celtics wouldn't hold up
against the Glades Day Gators
Oct. 14 as the Gators handed
their district rivals from St. John
Neumann their first loss of the
season to give Glades Day a deci-
sive advantage in the district
standings.
The Gators strung together
their fifth straight victory with
their 18-0 shutout over the Celtics
on Gator Field and picked up
their second district victory after
defeating Evangelical Sept. 30.
The only team standing in the
way of the Gators claiming the
district championship are the
struggling Terriers from Moore
Haven who will host the Gators
Oct. 28 in Moore Haven.
Once again it would be Frank
Lugo who would put up the first
Gator touchdown of the night.
Lugo, who posted over 200 yards
of rushing against Arlerican Her-
itage last week, would break.the
100-rushing mark with 131 yards
on 20 carries. Lugo also played a
part in all three of the Gator
scores last week running for
two and throwing for one on a
halfback option and would
again this past week against the
Celtics after finding the end zone
three times for the Gators.
Lugo scored on an 18-yard
run in the first quarter, which
would be the only score of the
first half. Lugo scored touch-
downs in both the third and
fourth quarters with runs of one-
yard and 23 yards respectively.
All three point after attempts
failed following the touchdowns,
as the Gators still struggle with
special teams.
"We definitely have some
kicking issues as far as our field
goals and point after attempts,"
said head coach Craig Dobson.
"It's something we are going to
work hard on this week and
we'll make some changes, not
so much in personnel, but in
techniques."
The Gators have locked up
their playoff appearance for the
2005-2006 season despite having
three games left on their sched-
ule and have done it with a back-
up quarterback in Brandon
Smith, although starting quarter-
back Josh McGregor was finally
back on the field for the Gators
for this victory, and a Gator
defense that has been relentless.
The Gator defense destroyed

counts .


American Heritage last week and
chalked up a shut out against the
previously undefeated Celtics in
allowing just 84 yards of passing,
63 of which came off one play,
and held the Celtic ground attack
to minus two yards.
Defensively, the Gators forced
three turnovers two intercep-
tions and one fumble while stiff-
ening to prevent points when the
Gator offense turned the ball
over three times.
"I'm really happy with the
way our defense is playing," said
coach Dobson. "The difference
right now compared to the
beginning of the season as these
guys are just playing harder and
learning their assignments. You
have to remember that this is a
young defense. We only have
two seniors on our defense.
They are learning and they are
playing harder."
The Gators look to King's
Academy Oct. 21. The Gators
knocked King's Academy out of
the playoffs last year and coach
Dobson is expected their next
opponents to come out playing
hard.
"It's going to be a good foot-
ball game," he said. "They aren't
going to forget who knocked
them out of the playoffs last year
and they are going to come to
play."
McGregor has one game
under his belt after coming back
from an injury that forced him to
the sidelines for four of Glades
Day's six games. McGregor went
to the air 13 times this week, con-
nected on seven passes for 145
yards and tossed one pick.
With McGregor back in the
lineup, it legitimizes the Gator air
attack, which will only compli-
ment a solid running game.
Lugo led the gators with his 131
yards and three touchdowns on
20 carries. Ricky Reitz ran for 67
yards on seven carries and Lloyd
Monds rushed for 20 yards on
five carries.
McGregor spread the ball
around well to his receivers. He
found Travis Hendry three times
for 66 yards, Andrew Boccanfu-
so twice for 34 yards, Lugo once
ffor 45 yards, and Reitz once for
two yards.
In all, the Gators tallied 145
yards in the air and 217 yards on
the ground for 362 yards of
offense while holding the Celtics
to just 82 yards of total offense.
The Gators host King's Acad-
emy Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Robert "Rah Rah" Love led the
Pahokee Blue Devils to their
biggest rout this year defeating
John Carroll 49-0. The Blue Dev-
ils' defense forced the Rams to
punt on their first possession of
the game giving the Devils'
offense the ball at mid-field.
The Devils took advantage of
the short field and had a first and
goal at the four-yard line three
plays later. Ricky Gary scored the
first Devils' touchdown of the
night. The PAT by Jose Rodriguez
was good and Devils led the
Rams 7-0 with 8:05 remaining in
the first half.
On the Blue Devils' second
possession of the game, the
offense mixed the plays up with
Love throwing to Tanoris Jones
for a first down and Janoris Jenk-
ins running for the next first
down. Pahokee's offensive selec-
tion led to Love hooking up with
Martavious Odoms on a play-
action pass that was good for a
46-yard strike to for a touchdown.
The play was a repeat of Odoms'
touchdown last. week against
Royal Palm Beach. Odoms sim-
ply beat the defender and was
wide open to make the quick
score. Love ran the two-point
conversion in on a bootleg put-
ting the Devils up 15-0 to end the
first quarter of play.
The Rams were able to put get

a first down at their own 20-yard
line at the beginning of the sec-
ond quarter and worked their
way into Blue Devils' territory. On
a key fourth down, Devil line-
backer Rudy Robinson made a
tackle on the Rams running back,
stopping him short of the first
down. Pahokee got the ball back
on their own 30-yard line and
Jenkins came in as the running
back to pick up a quick first
down.
Love again stood strong in the
pocket connecting with Odoms
for a 20-yard gain. Jenkins
capped the drive off with a 25-
yard touchdown run and Love
threw to tight end Un'Tavious
Scott for the two-point conver-
sion. The Blue Devils stretched
their lead 23-0.
The Blue Devils defense
would prove to be too much for
the Rams again. The Devils
forced the Rams to punt and
Robinson got a hand on the ball.
On the next play from scrim-
mage, Robert "Rah Rah" Love
threw a beautiful pass to Tamar-
cus Porter who eluded several
Rams' defenders and hauled the
ball into the end zone. The Blue
Devils entered half time with a 30-
0 lead. The Blue Devils had the
ball five times and scored four
touchdowns in the first half.
Unfortunately for the Rams,
the explosive Blue Devils' offense
would have many more big plays
in the second half. On the first
play from scrimmage to start the
third quarter, Love hit Nikita

The brunt of the team's offen-
sive efforts came in the form of
Raider sophomore Deandre Hol-
ley, whose 72 rushing yards, two
touchdowns and 113 passing
yards gave the team a decisive
advantage in the game.
But quarterback Bryan Mann,
as he often does, also contributed
to the game, going 8-for-14 for
160 yards with a touchdown pass.


Mann connected with Deonte
Thompson for a 48-yard touch-
down pass early in the game.
Mann also did a little running,
scoring off a seven-yard touch-
down run before Holley took
over in the second half.
Cardinal Gibbons stood by as
the Raiders continued racking up
the points, scoring three addi-
tional touchdowns in the first
quarter, setting up the win and
helping the team extend its unde-


feated record. The Raiders are
now 6-0 for the season.

exploded offensively in its last
two games. Love has shown his
senior leadership, patiently wait-
ing for his receivers to break
away from defenders. The execu-
tion of the team both offensively
and defensively has been superb.
For most Devils' players this
game was a chance to show off
their talent, speed, and ability. But
for Blue Devils senior outside
linebacker Kadero Hutchinson,
this was his chance to play.
Kadero has been out all season
with an ankle injury, but played

Sugar harvesting underway for Bryant Mill plant


CLEWISTON Although the
2005-2006 harvest season was
delayed several days due to rain,
U.S. Sugar began harvesting sug-
arcane today on its eastern farms
for delivery to the Bryant Mill.
Harvest on the western farms for
delivery to the Clewiston Mill is
scheduled to begin next week.
With the harvest season expected
to run 172 days, the company is
scheduled to harvest 168,658
acres, yielding an estimated 6.3-
million tons of cane. Last year's
storm-riddled season produced
5.9 million tons.
"Although we continue to have
cane damage from the unprece-
dented hurricanes and heavy
rains last season, we had a good
growing season this summer and
are looking forward to a more
normal harvest," said Robert
Coker, senior vice president, pub-
lic affairs of Clewiston, Florida
based U.S. Sugar. "Even as har-
vest and processing begin, con-
struction continues as we expand
and modernize our Clewiston Mill
and Refinery. When completed in


2007, our Clewiston sugar pro-
cessing operations will be among
the largest and most efficient in
the world," Coker stated.
According to Coker, recent free
trade agreements and ongoing
negotiations with additional
sugar-producing foreign coun-
tries mean more foreign sugar
entering the U.S. market. The
increased efficiency of the new
milling operations is aimed at
ensuring that U.S. Sugar is com-
petitive into the future.
At a time when world sugar
prices are at a decade high,
domestic sugar prices remain sta-
ble. Though the deadly storm sea-
sons of the past two years have
caused significant losses among
Florida and Louisiana sugar pro-
ducers, they have had virtually no
effect on consumer sugar prices
- a fact directly attributable to
U.S. sugar policy, said Coker.
"These natural catastrophes,
combined with increasing U.S.
sugar consumption, could have
led to a real crisis," noted Coker.
"Yet sugar supplies and prices


have remained stable, because
U.S. sugar policy is flexible and
effective. If our nation's oil policy
worked as well as sugar policy
does, we wouldn't see those price
spikes at the gas pump."
Last year, Florida suffered an
unprecedented four hurricanes,
costing the state's sugar growers
- who produce one quarter of
the nation's sugar supply 30
percent of their crops and some
$300 million in lost revenues. This
year, southern Louisiana's sugar-
cane crop was devastated. First
hurt by Katrina, growers were hit
even harder by Rita, which
brought saltwater 15 miles inland
and flooded crops under six feet
of water. The storms could cost
Louisiana sugar producers as
much as three-quarters of their
crop, a loss that could be felt for
years.
Immediately following Katri-
na, the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture allowed the release of an
industry-funded surplus sugar
reserve of 500,000 tons, and then
increased imports by about


200,000 tons. As a result, sugar
prices to individual consumers
and food companies, already
nearly a third lower than those of
other developed countries, will
stay stable.
The U.S. the world's largest
consumer of sugar and natural
sweeteners -- produces more
than 80 percent of these supplies
in a domestic free market that
operates at no cost to taxpayers. If
U.S. farmers produce more sugar
than they are allowed to sell,
based on annual government esti-
mates, they store the surplus at
their own expense. In times of
unforeseen shortages caused by
events such as hurricanes,
domestic surpluses and addition-
al imports address any shortfalls.
"U.S. sugar policy helps level
the playing field for efficient
domestic producers," Coker said.
"Without this policy, cheap for-
eign sugar imports could drive
domestic producers out of busi-
ness, making the U.S. completely
dependent on imported sugar.
And if our experience with


imported oil has taught us any- as possible over products that are
thing, it's the importance of essential to our economy and our
retaining as much independence people."

Citrus greening -


During the past few weeks,
local citrus growers have been lis-
tening closely to the mass media,
fearing the much-dreaded news
that a new disease is in our neigh-
borhood. Unfortunately, it's on our
southern doorstep. On a 1-10 scale,
if Citrus Canker is a "three," Citrus
Greening is an imperfect 10".
Last week the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture reported that
some residential trees in Palm
Beach and Martin Counties have
been infected with citrus greening.
One of these sites is on the Mar-
tin/St. Lucie line, which puts it too
darn close to our area. It's time to
learn about this new threat to our
struggling citrus industry.
This past August, an entomolo-
gist with the Florida Division of
Plant Industry was conducting a
citrus pest survey in Homestead.
Two citrus trees in separate loca-
tions showed symptoms of citrus
greening. Shortly after that, another
residential site of this disease was
found on the Dade Broward Coun-


ty border. Lab tests have confirmed
that we have a new battle to win.
By early last week, 161 trees on
140 properties in Miami-Dade and
Broward Counties have been iden-
tified with this bacterial disease,
not including the Palm Beach and
Martin finds. The fear is that there
is more out there, just waiting for
surveys to uncover it.
Citrus greening is also known by
its Asia name of huanglongbing, or
yellow dragon disease. It is a bacter-
ial disease that attacks the vascular
system of plants. Once infected,
there is no cure for a tree with citrus
greening disease. In areas of the
world where citrus greening is
found, citrus trees decline and die
within a few years. This deadly dis-
ease does not affect humans or ani-
mals, only certain plants.
The bacteria are usually trans-
mitted by insects know as citrus
psyllids. In June 1998, the insect
that carries the Asian strain of cit-
rus greening (Diaphorina citri)
was found for the first time in the


another threat to agriculture


U.S. in Delray Beach the inspec-
tor found no citrus greening infec-
tion at that time.
Because of the extreme threat
to Florida citrus, the Department of
Agriculture has been conducting a
citrus greening survey for many
years. Once the Asian citrus psyllid
was discovered here, citrus green-
ing survey efforts were intensified.
A survey in June 2000 found two
Okeechobee nurseries had plants
with this insect.
State and federal officials have
again intensified the survey to
identify how far this disease has
spread. Experts from the Universi-
ty of Florida and state and federal
agricultural officials are quickly
mobilizing to combat this threat to
our agricultural industry.
Symptoms of citrus greening
disease look like plants with severe
nutritional, deficiencies: Yellow
shoots, twig dieback, tree decline
and reduced fruit size and quality.
Often only a single branch is affect-
ed at first. Older leaves develop


Alico inspectors: More canker


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ:ALCO), one of the South's
best-known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, was recently
informed by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services that citrus canker was con-
firmed in Alico's 2 X 6 grove located
in Hendry County, Florida.
John R. Alexander, chairman
and CEO of Alico; Inc. said, "This
is the third canker find in our
groves this year. The company's
in-house canker inspectors dis-
covered the disease early and
hopefully the early detection will
minimize the loss."


To date, the three canker finds
have led to the destruction of
-approximately 940 acres of the
company's 11,147 producing citrus
acres.
All of the trees in this grove are
covered under the Federal Crop
Insurance program. A net loss of
approximately $610,000, consisting
of tree development costs and
inventoried costs less tax benefits
and expected insurance reim-
bursements will be recorded in the
fourth quarter of fiscal 2005 as the
canker existed at that time. Addi-
tionally, under the Florida Canker
Eradication Program, citrus may
not be replanted on the property


until it has been determined that
the property has been canker-free
for two years. Accordingly, the
company is evaluating the property
for its best future use. The 2 X 6
grove is not contiguous to other
company groves.
Citrus canker is a highly conta-
gious bacterial disease of citrus that
causes premature leaf and fruit
drop. Citrus canker causes no
threat to humans, animals or plant
life other than citrus. In order to
eradicate the disease, infected and
exposed trees within 1,900 feet of
the canker find must be removed
and destroyed in accordance with
Florida law.


Florida's Gulf drilling: No solution


Martinez reiterates
that conversation
is the key
WASHINGTON, DC U.S.
Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)
brought before the Senate Ener-
gy and Natural Resources Com-
mittee testimony that expanding
drilling in Florida's portion of the
Gulf of Mexico would have no


impact on current gas prices.
A full committee hearing took
place to receive an update on
hurricanes Katrina and Rita's
effects on the nation's energy
infrastructure and the status of
recovery efforts in the Gulf Coast
region. Senator Martinez ques-
tioned the impact of expanding
drilling in the Gulf.
"Some of my congressional
colleagues insist that the high


price of gasoline is the impetus
for expanding drilling in the Gulf.
I think the public ought to know
the fact that expanding drilling in
the Gulf will have zero impact on
current gas prices," said Mar-
tinez. "Today we heard clearly
from the head of the American
Petroleum Institute that expand-
ing drilling in the Gulf will have
no impact on the current price
crisis."


patches of discoloration. The
inside of the fruit is lopsided and is
inedible due to poor taste. The fruit
will drop off before ripening and
has poor color.
To confirm the presence of this
disease, a complex molecular test
is needed. Infected trees may live
for 5-8 years, but never produce
usable fruit. If allowed to live, the
trees can provide a source of infec-
tion for other plants. Research on
how to deal with this disease is
ongoing, but here's whatwe know:
A list of the plants that can be
affected by this deadly bacterial
disease include all of the well
know citrus fruit trees, plus a few
other plants that are sometimes
seen as ornamentals in our Florida
Yards: Orange jasmine, jackfruit
and limeberry.
A common landscape bush,
Orange Jasmine has been impli-
cated as a real problem plant, as it
seems to be very attractive to both


the Greening disease and the Cit-
rus Psyllid insect that can carry this
"yellow dragon" from one plant to
another.
The citrus psyllid has spread
around the state on orange jas-
mine plants, and almost all new
insect discoveries were in discount
garden centers.
African citrus psyllids can fly
about a mile, which is an area
almost seven times the quarantine
area for citrus canker. We don't
know the distance that Asian citrus
psyllids can fly. It's thought that if
we can get rid of the insects, we
may not have to cut down as many
trees.
It is thought that South Florida
high-risk areas include farms that
supply local ethnic markets or
those nurseries with a potential
history of importing illegal plant
material.
Please be on the lookout for the
citrus psyllid insect and for citrus


trees that show the symptoms
described above. As with cai iker, it
you suspect that your plants might
be affected by this disease.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING CITRUS
SAMPLES TO OUR OFFICE! Call us
and talk with one of our agents or
Master Gardeners, who will discus
your situation, and if necessary,
have appropriate authorities visit
your site. With your help, we can

Scrapped Taiwanese longline


vessels a boon for sea turtles


FOREST KNOLLS, CALIF -
The Taiwanese government has
-just announced that it will dis-
mantle 120 tuna longline vessels,
about five percent of its fleet.
Environmentalists are praising
this reduction in the largest long-
line fleet in the Pacific as a boon
for sea turtles, which are injured
and killed by longlines in large
numbers in the Pacific ocean.
"Longline fishing is costly,
inefficient and damages tuna
fisheries. There are just far too
many boats chasing too few fish
and killing far too many sea tur-
tles," said Robert Ovetz, PhD,
Save the Leatherback Campaign
Coordinator.
It is estimated that more than
1.4 billion longline hooks are set
in the world's oceans every year.
Longline fishing is a technique in
which thousands of baited hooks
are strung on monofilament
lines stretching as far as 60 miles.
Taiwan has the largest number of
longline vessels in the Pacific
with an estimated 2,113 vessels
in the Pacific alone. Japan, which
has the second largest longline


fleet in the Pacific, has also fol-
lowed suit with reductions in
recent years. This summer, the
U.S. even banned fishing for
Pacific bigeye tuna for the rest of
the year because of over fishing.
"Fewer hooks means fewer
turtles' sharks, seabirds, billfish
and marine mammals will be
killed. This is urgently needed if
we are to turn around the
descent of sea turtles and alba-
tross seabirds into extinction,"
Ovetz added.
Recent scientific reports warn
that the 100-million-year-old
Pacific leatherback sea turtles,
whose female nesting popula-
tion has collapsed by 95 percent
since 1980, could go extinct in
the next decade. Nineteen
species of seabirds, including the
black-footed albatross, are also
threatened with extinction by
longlines. An estimated 4.4 mil-
lion turtles, sharks, seabirds, bill-
fish and marine mammals are
injured and killed every year by
longlines in the Pacific. Other
reports have pinpointed longline
fishing as causing an 87-99-per-


cent decline in large pelagic fish
in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico
and the Pacific.
One thousand and seven
international scientists from 97
countries are urging the UN to
implement a moratorium on
longline fishing in the Pacific
Ocean to prevent the extinction
of the critically endangered
leatherback sea turtle. The scien-
tists are joined by 281 non-gov-
ernmental organizations from 62
countries. The list pf signers
includes famed primatologist Dr.
Jane Goodall, biologist E.O. Wil-
son, oceanographer Dr. Sylvia
Earle, a National Geographic
Explorer-in-Residence, and for-
mer U.S. astronaut Bernard Har
ris, Jr. M.D.
"While a good first step, a
moratorium is needed in order to
have time to put into place fur-
ther reductions in fishing capaci-
ty and other conservation meas-
ures, such as time and area
closures, reductions in subsidies,
100% observer coverage and
controls on illegal fishing," Ovetz
said.

Okeechobee, Hendry counties top state jobless rate


By Audrey Blackwell

When the August unemploy-
ment rates were released, Okee-
thobee and Hendry Counties
tvere named among the top
three highest jobless rates in the
ttate.
Okeechobee County had the
third highest jobless rate of 5.8
percent and Hendry County was
lumber one in the state at 10.4
percent. Hardee County was at
.5 percent,. placing it at the
lumber two spot.
The overall state unemploy-
ment dropped to 3.6 percent in
Iugust, down from 3.9 percent
tn July and the lowest it has been
since 2000, according to the
Florida Agency for Workforce
Innovation.
< Walton County had the state's
lowest unemployment rate at 2.4
percent; neighboring Okaloosa
County was the second lowest at
.7 percent.
The report said that Florida's
August seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate was the
lowest among ih'~l 0 mot bpu-i-
Jbus states and more than a per-
centage point lower than the
national rate of 4.9 percent.
"Led by a continuing boom in
construction and growth in man-
ufacturing and professional and
business services, Florida led the
nation in new jobs created in
August," the report said. It fur-
fher revealed that out of a civil-
ian labor force of 8.7 million
people, 310,000 Floridians were
unemployedd in August, "the

4 GAINESVILLE With the aid
bf a $6 million grant from the
National Science Foundation,
university of Florida researchers
ire working with scientists at the
University of California, Davis;
North Carolina State University;
And Texas A&M University to
identify genes that regulate
wood properties and disease-
resistance traits in loblolly pine.
The research to be con-
ducted by faculty in UF's new
,Genetics Institute will benefit
the $200 billion forest industry in
:13 Southern states where loblol-
Jy pine is the most-planted
species for commercial timber.
Southern pines cover just six
percent of U.S. forestland, but
account for 58 percent of the
nation's total wood production.
In Florida, forestry is a $16 bil-
lion industry, the state's largest
agricultural commodity.
"By aggressively seeking to
identify all of the major genes
controlling specific wood prop-
,erties and disease-resistance
traits in loblolly pine, we antici-
pate a significant breakthrough
in our understanding of a pine
species that is the highest-valued
crop in nine of 13 Southern
'states," said Gary Peter, an asso-
ciate professor of plant
.genomics in UF's Institute of
food and Agricultural Sciences
who is leading the UF research
effort to identify genes control-
ling wood properties.
-: "Wood is also a renewable
:energy source, and increasing
productivity through genetics
could help reduce our nation's
dependence on non-renewable
energy," he said.
The NSF Plant Genome
Research Program grant was
made to UF's School of Forest
Resources and Conservation
because of the school's long his-
tory of cooperating with the
forestry industry, particularly in
interdisciplinary genetic
research to identify mechanisms
that control productivity and


lowest that number has been
since December of 2000." The
Miami-Fort Lauderdale area led
the state in job growth in August,
adding 80,000 jobs.
George Long, Okeechobee
County administrator, said the
statistic isn't new. "Okeechobee
has found itself for quite some
time in that position," he said,
reacting to the high unemploy-
ment rate for the county. He list-
ed a variety of reasons for the
county's high jobless rate,
including not enough jobs avail-
able.
"In Okeechobee County, we
do not have a huge number of
large employers, and with the
large ones we do have, we have
not had wholesale lay-offs. Also,
more people have relocated to
Okeechobee than jobs were cre-
ated. Jobs are not growing as
fast as the population," Mr. Long
said.
Okeechobee and Hendry
county officials are working to
shrink their respective employ-
ment gaps. Farm labor is the
largest employment sector in
both counties, and August is. in
the unemployment season for
farming of citrus crops June
through September.
Mr. Long said Okeechobee
County has seen some signifi-
cant residential development
and more is on the way, which
should help create more con-
struction jobs. "But there are lit-
tle jobs in the industrial and
commercial development sec-
tor. This is one reason why the
county earlier this year began


developing an economic devel-
opment plan, to increase devel-
opment of jobs in those areas,"
he said.
In May, Okeechobee city and
county civic and business lead-
ers, political officials, and educa-
tors gathered for an all-day eco-
nomic planning summit. The
result was a draft county eco-
nomic development plan and a
commitment for funding and
support. Final action is pending
by political leaders.
The largest employee sector
in Okeechobee is farm labor.
Okeechobee school district is a
large employer with 951
employed teachers, administra-
tion and support personnel.
"That number fluctuates," said
Lee Dixon, assistant superin-
tendent for administration.
According to the 2000 census,
the largest private sector
employers in the city of Okee-
chobee in ranking order are the
following: Raulerson Hospital;
Walpole, Inc.; Larson Dairy, Inc.;
Wal-Mart; .McArthur Farms, Inc.;
Publix Supermarket; Winn-Dixie
Supermarket; Okeechobee
Health Care Facility; U-Save
Supermarket; and McDonald's.
Hendry County Administrator
Lester Baird said, "We always
seem to have the highest unem-
ployment rate in the state. It is
probably due to a number of
things. The seasonal workforce
has some impact on the statis-
tics. For one thing, the folks who
harvest oranges are off in the
summer, and farming is the
biggest area of employment in


Hendry County. In addition, we
have some continual unemploy-
ment, seasonal jobs being the
biggest area."
Mr. Baird said the largest
employer in Hendry County is
U.S. Sugar Corp. "They do
processing and have a refinery,"
he said. Their second biggest
employer is the school board
because of the number of teach-
ers and staff for the communities
of LaBelle and Clewiston. "We
have close to 1,000 employed in
the schools," he said.
Judy Sanchez, director of cor-
porate communications for U.S.
Sugar Corp., painted a bright pic-
ture for Clewiston employees.
She said they are in the process
of enlarging and modernizing
the Clewiston facilities. By 2007,
the Bryant operation will close
and all processing will take place
in Clewiston. "This will help us
reduce costs and operate more
efficiently," she said. While she
did not break down the exact
number of employees in each
community, she said that the
company employs about 1,800
to 1,900 people overall. The
majority are in Clewiston, the
company's headquarters.
"There is a larger mill there and
all administrative and general
office functions and a half of our
farming operations are in
Clewiston," she said.
Mrs. Sanchez said it is impor-
tant for people to understand
that the reason for the recent
high unemployment numbers
for the area is the statistics are
taken in July when citrus and


sugar seasonal jobs are reduced,
more so for citrus employment.
"To counter that, we are mod-
ernizing and enlarging our facili-
ties in Clewiston," she said.
Hendry County officials are
also striving to improve their
unemployment numbers
through business incentives.
"Probably in the past six to seven
years, we have engaged in
efforts to bring unemployment
down. Obviously, the efforts
have not been significant
enough," he said.
One example of a successful
effort was bringing in Ocean Boy
Farms a freshwater shrimp
operation. "They have numbers
of ponds where they grow, har-
vest and process shrimp and sell
it locally," Mr. Baird said. He said
the county helped foster several
other businesses. Ocean Boy
Farms is located at the Air Glades
Airport Industrial Park.
Also in the park is Tailored
Foam, a service center. "They
inject foam into walls at con-
struction sites for insulation,"
said Mr. Baird,. 'e said there is
also a truck sanitizing operation
for orange trucks carriers and
a tanker truck.
"We keep trying to plug away
and are making a little progress
in reducing the unemployment,"
Mr. Baird said.
The draft economic study
performed for Okeechobee by
William Fruth of POLICOM Corp.
reported that the most important
primary industries in Okee-
chobee County's economy are
farming and retirement.


"Approximately 40 percent of all
imported money enters the
county's economy as a result of
the farm industry," the report
said. The statement was based
on sales of livestock and crops
for 2002. The study pointed out,
however, that the wage of typical
farm labor jobs is relatively low.
The retirement industry was
seen as a major and growing pri-
mary industry in the draft report.
"Money flows into the area
through private retirement pro-
grams, Social Security payments,
and Medicare reimbursements,"
the report stated. While the
retirement industry promulgates
formation of jobs in services and
retail sectors, these are two of
the three lowest paying sectors
in an economy, with farm labor
as third, the report concluded.
(The Okeechobee County Goal
Study is available online at
www.co.okeechobee.fl.us/.)
In related studies, the state of
Florida was found to rank near
the middle in terms of personal
income in the level of the pover-
ty levels for the nation. The 2005
edition of "50 State Compar-
isons," published by The Tax-
payers Network, revealed that
per capital personal income for
2003 for the state of Florida
ranked 25th in the nation at
$29,972. The percent of popula-
tion below the poverty level in
2003 showed Florida as ranking
21st at 13.1 percent; Louisiana
was number one at 20.3 percent
and New Hampshire was num-
ber 51 at 7.7 percent.


n dollar grant supports research on loblolly pine


health of planted pines, Peter
said.
John Davis, an associate pro-
fessor of forest biotechnology
who is leading the UF effort to
identify genes controlling dis-
ease resistance, said the
research findings will reveal
genetic mechanisms that help
explain the long evolutionary
success of pine.trees.
He said the research will gen-
erate an unprecedented glimpse
of the genes that affect interac-
tions among pine trees, fungi
and other natural components
of forest systems. The 'new
insights are expected to enhance
gene conservation efforts and
society's ability to cope with
challenges such as evolving pest
populations.
Dudley Huber, an associate in
forest genetics and co-director of
the UF pine breeding coopera-
tive, said understanding how dif-
ferent genes affect the health
and viability of trees in natural
and breeding populations will
have immediate and far-reach-
ing benefits for tree improve-
ment programs and should dra-
matically reduce testing costs
and breeding cycle times.
Matias Kirst, an assistant pro-
fessor of quantitative genetics, is
leading the UF effort to identify
gene regulatory networks.
"Genes regulate tree proper-
ties, however, some genes also
regulate other genes," he said.
"Understanding these networks
will help us unravel how genes
work together to .make a pine
tree."
The UF team also includes
George Casella, professor and
chair of the statistics depart-
ment, who is working with
Huber to develop and apply
novel analytical methods for the
discovery of significant associa-
tions between genotypes and
phenotypes.
Kenneth Berns, director of
the UF Genetics Institute, said
the NSF grant represents an


important stride for the genetics
program.
"The Genetics Institute unites
researchers from UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences with faculty from the col-
leges of medicine, engineering,
and liberal arts and sciences," he
said. "This kind of study requires


expertise in population genetics
and bioinformatics two of the
main areas pegged for develop-
ment in the UF Genetics Insti-
tute's strategic plan.
"Bioinformatics is necessary
in the loblolly pine research to


analysis will be used to under-
stand how evolutionary forces
have influenced the gene pool of
the species. Both techniques
require the classification and
analysis of vast amounts of
data."


ciplinary research, the loblolly
pine project is expected to pro-
vide significant insight into an
important frontier in fundamen-
tal genetic research: the struc-
ture, function and regulation of


analyze gene sequences," Berns In addition to the valuable genes tnat control complex
said. "Then, population genetics applied benefits of this multidis- traits, Berns said.
