American Red
Cross shelters
Due to water and sewage
issues at Glades Central High
School, all evacuees in this
shelter at 1001 SW Ave. M,
Belle Glade are being moved
to the Lake Shore Middle
School shelter at 425 W Canal
Street, Belle Glade. In addition
two other shelters remain
open in Palm Beach County:
Palm Beach Central HS/8499
West Forest Hill Blvd., Welling-
ton Park Vista High
School/7900 Jog Road, Boyn-
ton Beach.

Change in Ameri-
can Red Cross
feeding locations
Due to logistical isues., the
fixed feeding site in Delray
Beach at the South County
Civic Center has become a
mobile feeding unit that will
travel throughout neighbor-
hoods near the South County
Civic Center. Glades General
Hospital in Belle Glade is no
longer able to allow the Amer-
ican Red Cross to set up a
feeding location at its location.
Therefore, the Red Cross has
moved its feeding location to
the following facility: Belle
Glade Fire Rescue 525 SW 2nd
Street Fixed Site (2 units). The
American Red Cross is a
humanitarian organization led
by volunteers who provide
relief to victims of disaster and
help people prevent, prepare
for and respond to emergen-
cies. For more than 80 years,
the American Red Cross
Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter, which includes
Glades, Hendry, Okeechobee
and Palm Beach counties, has

families during a hurricane;
flood or fire, and teaching First
Aid, CPR, AIDS Prevention and

8 116510 00017 7


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The night before, and days
leading up to it, residents in the
Glades prepared for the impend-
ing natural onslaught of the slowly
approaching Hurricane Wilma,
and watched as the storm devas-
tated parts of Mexico in its path.
In the span of a few hours in its
early formation, the hurricane
grew in intensity from a weaker
hurricane to a Category 5 storm
like very few, if any in recorded his-


tory have done, and its projected
path favored making a direct hit in
the area.
People flocked to stores to
stock up on plywood, and water,
and canned goods, and genera-
tors. Even then, most agreed they
still were not prepared. With a flur-
ry of hurricanes having hit last
year, the tedium of having to pre-
pare again and again in fear was
wearing on the people.
It showed.
The long and desperate lines


that formed at gas stations still
were there, but no longer snaked
around the corner. Grocery stores
had just a few more customers
than usual, but not in the some-
times overwhelming numbers of
disasters past, and water was
widely available.
One man sat outside of his
home in Pahokee and said, "What
can you do?" before answering his
own question, "Nothing."
Still there were fears, though
subdued, and residents worried.


Belle Glade Marina: Wilma showed no mercy


INl/Mark Young
The Belle Glade Marina suffered, massive damage .following Hurrilane Wilma.


Marina destroyed; hearts broken


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE Words like
"destruction" and "devastated"
can sometimes be over used,
but it when it comes to the Belle
Glade Marina, these two words
are not descriptive enough.
When Hurricane Wilma's
back eye wall came through
Belle Glade, she brought with it
wind gust of well over 130 miles
per hour and a 12-20-foot storm
surge that pushed Lake Okee-
chobee within 15 feet of over-
coming the Herbert Hoover
Dike.
Boats and trailers that once
dotted the parking lot of the
marina and campground, now
sit as a telling tale of a massive
water surge, as they line shores
in the middle of the dike.
Boats and trailers were lifted
up like toys and moved around
the marina, in some cases as far
as 300 yards away from its origi-
nal location. The destruction
was complete, but most every-
one heeded the warnings and
evacuated the marina with the
exception to two boat owners


With the three cities locally
banded by Lake Okeechobee, the
second-largest inland lake in the
country, fears that its dike could
crumble under such powerful
winds and rain seemed to worry
many residents in the Gl'ades -
news of the rampant flooding and
death in New Orleans from Hurri-
cane Katrina propelled those fears.
And the fact that the lake had been
responsible for the deaths of thou-
sands in the Hurricane of 1928
perched heavy on the minds of


people who have lived their lives
hearing of the death and despair
that followed the flooding of the
area in what is still one of the great-
est natural disasters in American
history.
All anyone could do was wait.
Some went to the shelters set
up at local schools. Others board-
ed up homes and found a safe
place in their homes to wait it out.
Some refused to leave their mobile

Cities around



the lake will



recover


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SNearly two weeks following
Hurricane Wilma, the three
Glades cities now transition
from a mode of survival to that
of rebuilding. As leaders in the
cities calculate the losses suf-
fered as a result of the storm,
preparations are being made to
bring to the area the sense of
normalcy that Wilma has dis-
rupted.
Slowly, power is being
restored to the three cities, and
the utilities are on schedule to
be fully restored within the span
of the next few weeks. After
days of living without water and
electricity, residents are transi-


tioning to living somewhat of a
normal lifestyle.
Each city faces a multitude of
similar problems, compounded
by issues unique to each.
Belle Glade was hit hard,
there is no doubt about that,
said City Manager Tate. "Belle
Glade has been devastated,"
said the manager. "A significant
amount of property has been
affected."
The local fire department,
already working at a temporary
site at the civic center, has been
forced to relocate once again fol-
lowing Hurricane Wilma. The
building was left ruined and

the canal at the marina display a telling tale of where
Wilma's storm surge ended up, as the waterline came
within 15-20 feet of overcoming the dike.


who decided to ride out the
storm on their tethered resi-
dences.
Bob McClure is a 20-year res-
ident of the Bahamas and has
seen his share of storms. He is a
regular summer visitor to the
Belle Glade Marina and had just
arrived when Hurricane Wilma
decided to leave the shores of
Mexico and make a beeline for
South Florida.
Weather predictions were
unstable, calling for Wilma to
hit the South Florida shore as a


possible low category two with
winds decreasing as it moved
inland. Wilma possessed a
massive eye, some 40-50 miles
across, indicating that the storm
was likely to weaken as it
moved inland, but Wilma had
other ideas as it strengthened
before landfall, and never lost
its intensity as it crossed the
Glades area.
Radar indicated that the
storm's most powerful weather

By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE According
to Belle Glade Utilities Director
Rutledge Jones, Belle Glade resi-
dents will have to continue to be
patient when it comes to full
restoration of water, sewer, and
power.
Surrounding areas continue
to see progress made to their
power supplies, with Eastern
Palm Beach County residents
seeing some progress, Okee-
chobee County has been fully
restored, Glades County is also
restored, and Hendry County is
expected to be fully restored by
press time.
The Glades area will continue


to deal with several issues, as the
power to the Glades comes from
Palm Beach County, which is
working on a priority basis.
Power running from Eastern
Palm Beach County to the
Glades, comes through the trans-
fer station around twenty-mile
bend.
That station was severely
damaged by Hurricane Wilma,
as was many light poles running
down Hwy. 80 and of course,
Belle Glade saw light pole
destruction on a massive scale.
Mr. Jones said he has not
heard anything concrete to pro-
vide an accurate timeframe, but

Senators push for relief


By Bill Fabian
BELLE GLADE United
States Senators Bill Nelson and
Mel Martinez promised to
push for a legislative action
that would allow victims of
Hurricane Wilma to qualify for
aid from the Disaster Relief
Bill, which was originally
passed to provide aid and
assistance to victims of Hurri-
cane Katrina.
The United States Senate
members from Florida flew
into the Belle Glade airport on
a United States Army Black-
hawk helicopter to tour the
hurricane-ravaged areas of
South Florida on Monday, Oct.
31, the same day that Gover-
nor Jeb Bush was traveling
through the area to hear from
municipal government offi-
cials and outline plans for hur-
ricane recovery efforts.
City officials from Pahokee,


Belle Glade, South Bay and
Clewiston awaited the arrival
of Nelson and Martinez, who
hoped to complete a tour of
Pahokee, Belle Glade, and
South Bay on Monday.
Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser
expressed appreciation for the
senators' visit and the progress
of recovery efforts in the area.
"It's encouraging to see the
progress going on around
here. One day you look down
a long road and see a long row
of utility poles all leaning over,
and then the next day you look
down the same road and all
the poles have been straight-
ened and repaired," said
Mayor Sasser.
"That's when you know
things are getting done," he
said.
The United States Sugar
Corporation, which has suf-
fered heavy damage to both
crop assets and refinery facili-


ties, has been one of the pri-
mary voices asking for inclu-
sion of Hurricane Wilma vic-
tims to the Disaster Relief Bill.
USSC Vice President Robert
Coker traveled to Washington
to lobby for the legislative
action, and also came out to
greet Nelson and Martinez in
Belle Glade. Speaking to Sena-
tor Martinez, Coker described
the state of the sugar industry
after the storm.
According to the public
affairs executive, most of the
orange groves owned by USSC
and Southern Gardens Citrus
have been heavily damaged -
most of the oranges were
blown off the trees. "We are
out salvaging what we can
from those groves, and we still
hope to get something out of
this year's orange crop," he
said.
See Senator Page 4


INI/BIIl Fabian
Senators Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez toured the heavily
damaged areas of Pahokee, Belle Glade, and South Bay, and
promised to push for legislation that would provide federal
disaster relief by including victims of Hurricane Wilma with
the Disaster Relief Bill.

From the editor: May we all remember


By Mark Young
It's a common saying that dis-
asters bring out the best in peo-
ple and there is always someone
who chimes in with, "and the
worse".
Unfortu-
nately that is
true as oppor-
tunists and
thieves show
the ugly side
of humanity
during times
of crisis. But I
have always Mark
believed that Young
the majority of
people are good despite what I
have seen through my many
travels across this great country
of ours and beyond.
Unfortunately, the good in
people will slowly take a back
seat as everyday life once again
will trod our lives forward and
return us to our everyday exis-
tence of working, paying bills,
and worrying about the societal
pressures put on our children.
It's only during times of crisis
that the good nature of human
beings gets a chance to shine.
There is an opportunity for the


average person to see their fel-
low man in need, and we react
without question. But as the cri-
sis fades and everyday life
returns, the people intent on liv-
ing their lives in a state of selfish
greed, without regards to others,
assumes the spotlight once

again, because it is these people
whose characters and personali-
ties are consistent.
That is why I do and
always will believe that most
humans are good. It is a pity that
it takes such a large-scale crisis
to bring to the forefront the true
character of the average person.
When the Twin Towers fell on
that fateful September morning,
the American spirit rose from
the ashes and shined its power-
ful light upon the nation caus-
ing strangers to smile at one
another, strangers to care for
one another, strangers consoling
one another, and strangers cast-
ing their individual realities aside
for the good of all man.
And even though I'm an opti-
mist when it comes to human
nature, I am also a realist when
it comes to that same human
character. Pre 9-11, this country
was plagued with political cor-


rectness to the point of absurdi-
ty. I counted the days until I saw
the first signs of its return and
the negativity of some humans
begin to cloud the gallantry of
others. It took 17 days and it was
a fast trip downhill from there.
Then Florida found its way in
the path of four serious storms
and the nation's eyes turned this
way. And only a few months
ago, Hurricane Katrina brought
the powerful city of New
Orleans to its knees. We reached
out to our fellow human beings.
We chipped in our hard earned
money and cleaned out our
pantries and closets for all those
along the Gulf Coast.
And now we sit in the middle
of the devastation of Hurricane
Wilma. The nation's eyes are
upon us, but the reality of the sit-
uation is that very soon those
eyes will look away. And slowly,
but surely, our eyes will close,
our extended hands will retract
and everyday life will resume.
But knowing that the spirit of
America albeit sometimes
dormant is there, is a power-
ful comfort. My faith in humans
will not waver and I will forever
hope that one day it will not take
a large-scale tragedy for

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello my
name is Henry, and I wanted to
ask a post Wilma question. Do
dogs suffer from post traumatic
stress disorder? My dog Phil has
been a nervous mess all this
week. We did ride out the storm
at home. Although it was a loud
and frightening time, we did
come out okay. Do you think Phil
is still upset from all the tensions?
Thanks Doc. Henry and Phil in
Moore Haven.
A: Dear Henry and Phil, the
answer is yes! Dogs do stress out
from a traumatic event such as a
hurricane. Dogs pick up on our
emotions, and can feel insecure if
they are troubled and do not
understand what is going on.
Make sure to pay particular atten-
tion to Phil, and comfort him. If
needed sometimes a sedative for
a few days can be helpful. Also,
even antidepressants can be indi-
cated. Make sure to consult with
your veterinarian to see what may
help Phil. Take care, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Since the
hurricane, we have a boil water
order in effect in our area. Does
this mean I have to do the same
for my cat? Barbara in Pahokee.
A: Hello Barbara, that is a very
important question. Yes you do! If
the water is not safe for our con-


Doc Savvy
sumption, it is the same for our
pets. It would be best to serve
your kitty bottled water. In fact, it
is much better to give our pets
bottled or filtered water all the
time. Some people will think that
is an added expense, but it's really
the best thing to do to prevent any
contamination. That's what I do
for Sam and Luigi, as well as all
my boarders and hospital patients
at my practice! Hope that helps
Barbara. Best wishes, Doc Savvy.

Anchor deep and pray now again


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Hunicane David approached
Florida in 1979. A college friend had
a boat that he was worried about,
so a number of us descended
south from Gainesville to help him
secure his )boat for the coming
storm.
Beini g a for i ner Boy Scout, I was
proud of the job we did in tying
down that boat. We lashed it tightly
to the dock, trees, and even to itself.
It wasn't going ai lywhere. We were
patting ourselves on the back when
a sea captain informed us that the
best way to secure a boat safely
during a hurricane was to anchor it
away from the trees and things
which would "get eaten up in the
'cane". It was better to anchor it
deep with four ropes going out in
different directions and pray. It was
good advice then and was good
advice when Wilma visited our
community. We are to anchor deep


and then we are to pray. We are to
do what we can do and then turn to
our Lord.
Like many others, the ferocity of
Wilma surprised me. Having
grown up in Florida, hurricanes are
not new to me. I wasn't really wor-
ried. We were supposed to be on
the "less severe" side. I prepared. I
stored up ice and water in case they
were needed. I made sure that my
generator was working. I pur-
chased chocolate for my wife. I
boarded up the windows. I was
ready or so I thought.
I ran a little short on large
boards, so on the last window I
pieced together several smaller
boards. There was a little space
between them. No problem it
was behind one of the porch
columns and a bush.
Wilma struck. My sugarcane bit
the dust. The hibiscus bush was
stripped of leaves. But we were
managing okay. Power was out,


but I would start the generator
when the winds died down.
Then the wind shifted, and start-
ed coming in from the north. I was
watching the shift and was amazed
at what I saw. It was coming right at
me. Then I noticed that one of the
columns supporting our porch top-
pled. The window started flexing a
little bit. The next thing I knew, the
window next to me shattered. The
curtain started billowing and the
rain started to come in. My first
reaction was to put something over
it, but my wife would have none of
that. I sent them to our safe room,
and I went to the end of the house
to retrieve the phone that worked
without electricity. I was very wary
of standing in front of the window
while retrieving the phone. Soon,
my wife, myself, our dog and two
cats were in the safe room. And we
started to "anchor deep" in prayer.
All four columns of our porch
were blown down, a window was


broken, we lost some shingles and
soffit, but we were safe. Praise be to
God!
Upon reflection, I realized that
my hurricane experience is much
like my spiritual experience. I can
prepare. I can board up to protect
against hurricane forces, but all it
takes is one little opening one lit-
tle place where I didn't cover up as
much as I should have, and the
enemy has an opening to invade
my home. Let me tell you that it
was very un-nerving to have the
storm on the inside of my house.
We can have most of our per-
sonal home protected, but all the
enemy needs is that one little open-
ing to invade. Fortunately, when the
enemy invades, when the storm
breaks in, we have an anchor we
can tie into. When we do what we
can and anchor deep in prayer, and
when we hold onto that anchor
line to the Lord with all of our heart,
we can weather any storm!


Noah and the pilgrims, and Wilma too


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My thoughts this past week ran
to Noah. You recall his place in his-
tory as the person who built the
ark and took his family along with
two of every species for a 40-day
non-pleasure cruise (Genesis
6:6ff) The earth flooded; it has
been compared by some to be the
baptism of the earth.
Through the trial by water,
Noah held on and then sent out
doves; the second dove bringing
back an olive leaf to show Noah
that the water had receded. When
Noah left the ark, he did some-
thing that we should do today
when the waters recede he
built an altar (Genesis 8:20). Per-
haps it is not necessary to build an
altar, but to find one and thank
God for being with us during the
storm.
Our Pilgrim ancestors made a
rough crossing across- the Atlantic
Ocean on boats that none of us
would use to cross Lake Okee-
chobee these days. They did it


because they believed and when
they arrived in a new land, they too
built an altar. They gave thanks to
God for their safe deliverance and
travel, and shared with the people
they found around them (you've
heard of "Thanksgiving" and
maybe you've wondered to whom
they gave thanks ... well!) God was
with them and they made it;
instead of grumbling about the
length of the trip or the rough
waters or the lack of proper facili-
ties, or the poor diet, or the rough
land when they arrived, they saw
the big picture and thanked God.
I was working on my own fami-
ly genealogy and read of my dis-
tant relatives who arrived here on
a sailing ship. She had written a let-
ter home and told about the cross-
ing, saying it was a good crossing
"only seven people died." She also
told about the ship captain not
landing at the docks because there
were many who would become
indentured servants to pay off their
passage and he was afraid they
would run away. She gave thanks
for her safe arrival too. Now, as I
listened to the call-in shows while


we were without electricity and
heard people complain or want
special favors, I couldn't help but
wonder if they got the big picture
- they had been spared during
one of the worst storms known to
the area and yet worried about if
they might be the last person to get
electricity.
I suspect that person had no
altar. They missed something and
that's too bad. We will rebuild, we
will all have our power back we
will all be fed, very few have died
across the nation, we certainly
have so much to be thankful for.
This past Sunday, we gave
thanks to God at our church for the
presence he showed and the
blessings we received when it
could have been ever so much
worse. We also resolved to help
those who suffered more than we
did and show our thanksgiving in
our acts and deeds as we, as our
words and prayers.
I am grateful to God personally
for all that could have happened
and didn't happen and so are oth-
ers who the world would judge as
less fortunate than I was. Surpris-


ingly, many of them are thankful to
God too and that's what it is all
about. In spite of the problems, in
spite of the disasters, in spite of the
ways things turn out, we came
through.
When I lived and ministered in
the North, people would ask me
"How could you stand those hurri-
canes" and when I returned south,
people would ask me, "How could
you stand those winters?" The
answer was that God had sent me
somewhere and it went with the
territory; but God wouldn't send
any of us anywhere without being
there too, and that's how I "stood"
it. Like God's family ordeals have a
way of binding us closer together
- the richest periods in church
history were the periods when the
persecutions were the worst. The
adversity that some complain
about drives the faithful into a
sense of fellowship and oneness
tat heals and restores. We made it,
it came with a cost, but we can be
richer for it by giving thanks to God
for seeing us through. Like Noah
or the Pilgrims, we can build an
altar, or find one.

Destruction
Utter devastation greeted curious onlookers who began
to hear of the destruction that occurred at the Belle
Glade Marina.

INI/Jose Zaragoza
Turned upside down
Hurricane Wilma's path through the Glades recently
seemed to ravage many parts of the tri-cities areas,
areas now working toward recovery. Reaching Florida as
a Category 3 storm, the hurricane blasted past the state.


Trailers and RVs were ripped from their anchors and
tossed around like toys in the midst of Wilma's fury.

of Belle Glade, tries to laugh off the damage his home sus-

Seedlings of sugar cane were
wiped out during the storm, and
must be restored in ordei to
guarantee a harvest for 2006.
"We're really rushing to
replant for next year, because
what we had planted before the
storm will not grow after the
amount of water deposited by
the storm," Coker said.
Still, there is very little hope
that this year's crop will reach its
full potential, and Coker
appealed to Senator Martinez for
help.
"We're in trouble," said
Coker.
The United States Senate
approved a $51.8 billion disaster
bill for hurricane relief efforts on
Sept. 8 in the wake of the devas-
tating landfall of Hurricane Katri-
na on the Gulf Coast.
If the request is successful,
the relief bill would allow vic-
tims of Hurricane Wilma to reg-
ister for federal aid by contacting
the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency or the Red Cross at
emergency shelters and distribu-
tion centers throughout the


region.
In addition to concerns over
the federal relief bill, local offi-
cials also expressed an urgent
need for federal assistance with
housing for thousands of dis-
placed families and residents.
County and municipal offi-
cials also expressed to Senators
Nelson and Martinez the press-
ing needs in the area.
"We have had a devastating
blow to our area, and there are a
lot of folks in need of help with
finding a home," said Hendry
County Commissioner Janet
Taylor. "There are still hundreds
of residents in need of shelter,
and they need some means of
temporary housing," said Com-
missioner Taylor.
According to Senator Nelson,
the process of legislative action
would take several days before
the Senate votes on an amend-
ment to the disaster relief bill,
but the plan has been initiated,
and should be successful.
"We have already begun to
ask fellow legislators to consider
Hurricane Wilma victims, and
the process of getting that done
is already in the works," said
Senator Nelson.

Glades County Sheriff's Office prepares


MOORE HAVEN Florida Click
it or Ticket campaign brings atten-
tion to the needless deaths that
occur on our roadways each year
during the Thanksgiving Holiday
because motorist fail to use their
safety belts. Glades County Sheriff's
Office joined law enforcement
across the state in an effort to save
lives this holiday season by remind-
ing everyone to buckle up. This
traffic initiative will run from Nov.
18-30 to include the busy Thanks-
giving holiday travel period.
Traditionally, the Thanksgiving
holiday period is on of the heaviest
traveled times across the U.S. The
result is a significant increase in traf-


fic crashes. Last year in Florida
alone, during the same time period
as this years campaign, 77 people
died in motor vehicle related crash-
es over half of those fatalities were
not using their safety belts.
Thanksgiving is a joyous holi-
day, but it is also one of the dead-
liest on our roadways, says Sheriff
Stuart Whiddon, Glades County
Sheriff and former Florida Highway
Patrol Officer. "Too many people
are being killed in traffic crashes
because they just didn't take a few
seconds to put on their safety belt.
Children and young adults learn
best by example, and we all need
to make sure they see the right


example.
During the most recent Click it
or Ticket Florida mobilization, held
earlier this year over the Memorial
Day Holiday period, state and local
law enforcement agencies issued
almost 37,000 safety belt citations.
Although law enforcement agen-
cies across the state participate n
the Click it or Ticket Florida mobi-
lizations because the inattentive
heightens safety belt use aware-
ness surrounding times of the year
with high traffic related death rates,
these agencies enforce the safety
belt law every day because they
know it is a matter of life or death.
"The Click it or Ticket Florida


enforcement and education cam-
paign sends a clear message that
safety belts and child safety seas
when used properly saves lives,"
says Sheriff Whiddon of Glades
County Sheriff's Office. "We know
this is true because unfortunately
we must respond to fatal crashes.
This is why we enforce the law and
issue citations to unbuckled
motorist."
Glades County Sheriff's Office
and law enforcement agencies
across the state, with support from
Florida Department of Transporta-
tion, are joining together to remind
everyone this holiday season to
click it or you will receive a ticket.


Statewide law enforcement supports southwest


In the early hours of Monday,
Oct. 24, law enforcement from
across the state were positioned
and ready to help in the recovery of
the destruction that would be left
from Hurricane Wilma.
Southwest Florida took a direct
hit from the Category 3 hurricane
and law enforcement agencies in
the impacted areas needed help.
Way before the storm hit the Flori-
da Department of Law Enforce-
ment began to coordinate the
influx of state and local law


enforcement that would be
responding to the region. A Multi-
Agency coordination command
post was established at the Fort
Myers Regional Operations Center.
Four hundred and twenty-one
members of law enforcement
agencies have responded and lent
assistance to local agencies in the
impacted counties of Collier,
Glades, Hendry, Lee, and Okee-
chobee. The main goals of the law
enforcement duties is to assist local
law enforcement with search and


rescue, security, looting and curfew
violations, and traffic control. To
date, a total of 191 hurricane relat-
ed arrests have been made in the
region.
With power being restored to
most of the region the statewide
response will start to decrease as
the communities began to get back
to some sense of normalcy. FDLE
would like to thank all of the law
enforcement agencies listed below
for their tireless efforts assisting
local law enforcement in protect-


ing the citizens and visitors of
Southwest Florida:
Alachua County Sheriff's Office,
Marion County Sheriff's Office,
Belleview Police Department,

Disaster unemployment assistance


TALLAHASSEE Susan
Pareigis, director of Florida's
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion, announced that individuals
who have lost jobs or businesses
as a result of Hurricane Wilma
may be entitled to Disaster
Unemployment Assistance ben-
efits.
On Oct. 24, President George
W. Bush, in response to a
request from Governor Jeb
Bush, declared a major disaster
for Broward, Collier, Glades,
Hendry, Lee, Martin, Miami-
Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach, and
St. Lucie Counties, clearing the
way for use of federal funds to
provide assistance to individuals
affected by the disaster.
Although many workers will
be covered by the state's regular
unemployment compensation
program, those not covered may
apply for Disaster Unemploy-
ment Assistance (DUA). This is a
federally funded program,
which assists individuals who
become unemployed as a direct
result of a declared disaster and
who do not qualify for regular
unemployment benefits. The
program also covers self-
employed individuals, owners of
farms and ranches, farm and
ranch workers, as well as fishers
and others who are not normally
covered by state unemployment
compensation.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation administers the DUA
program in Florida in partner-
ship with the U.S. Department of
Labor and state and regional
workforce boards. Funding for
the program is provided by the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency.
Applicants must file for disas-
ter benefits within 30 days of the
date of public notification.
Therefore, DUA applications
must be filed no later than Nov.
28. To be eligible for either the
regular state unemployment
compensation program or DUA,
the applicant must be a legal res-


ident. To be eligible for DUA
benefits, an individual must
have exhausted all entitlement
to any regular state unemploy-
ment benefits and must have
been working in or residing in a
county for which the disaster
has been officially declared.
DUA benefits are available to
unemployed individuals for up
to 26 weeks from the date of the
disaster declaration. The 26-
weeks assistance period for Hur-
ricane Wilma ends April 29,
2006.
Federal regulations provide
that the unemployment of an
individual is caused by a disaster
if the individual: (1) becomes
unemployed as a direct result of
the disaster; or (2) is unable to
reach the place of employment
as a direct result of the disaster;
or (3) was scheduled to begin
work and does not have a job or


is unable to reach the job as a
direct result of the disaster; or
(4) has become the major sup-
port for a household because
the head of the household has
died as a direct result of the dis-
aster; or (5) cannot work
because of an injury caused
directly by the disaster.
Individuals applying for disas-
ter related unemployment assis-
tance will need to have the fol-
lowing information available:
Social Security number
Alien registration number
and expiration date (if a non-
U.S. citizen)
Name and address of most
recent employers)
If self-employed have proof
of self-employment for the past
two years
(State or Federal tax returns,
financial statements, bank
records of accounts, or 1099


Forms. Documentation neces-
sary to support a claim may be
faxed to 850-921-3938. Appli-
cant's Social Security number
should appear on all documents
submitted)
If scheduled to begin work
but could not work due to the
disaster, have name and address
of employer and the date work
was scheduled to begin
Beginning Monday, Oct. 31,
applications for DUA may be
filed by Internet at the following
web site address: www.fluid-
now.com now.com/> (indicate on the
application that it is a disaster
related unemployment claim).
Telephone applications may be
filed by calling (800) 204-2418.
Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to
6 p.m. EST, Monday through Fri-
day.

Everyone should be aware of carbon monoxide


This week as residents of
South Florida who lost power
after Hurricane Wilma hooked
up generators, .there were many
warnings about the dangers of
carbon monoxide. Generators
were linked to carbon monoxide
deaths after Hurricane Charley
last year and after Hurricane
Katrina this year. As we hooked
up a generator at my house, we
were well aware of the potential
dangers.
On Tuesday evening, I
received a phone call from my
hometown. My parents were
both in the hospital with carbon
monoxide poisoning. They hadn
t been using a generator. They
had, however, turned on their
gas furnace for the first time this
fall.
The following information
came from the Florida Depart-
ment of Health.
Question: What is Carbon
Monoxide?
Answer: Carbon monoxide
(CO) is an odorless, colorless,
tasteless gas that interferes with
the delivery of oxygen in the
blood to the rest of the body and
is highly poisonous.
Question: What are the major
sources of CO?
Answer: Carbon monoxide is
produced as a result of incom-
plete burning of fuels including
coal, wood, charcoal, natural
gas, gasoline, diesel, kerosene,
and heating oil. It can be pro-
duced by portable generators,
small gasoline engines, charcoal
grills, gas stoves, automobile
exhaust from attached garages,
and smoking tobacco. Problems
can arise as a result of improper
placement, installation, opera-
tion, maintenance of CO gener-

with Katrina Elsken


ating devices or appliances.
Improperly designed or mal-
functioning exhaust systems for
permanently installed home
combustion appliances may
also contribute to elevated CO
levels. Portable generators and
charcoal grills are major sources
of CO and should never be oper-
ated inside enclosed or partially
enclosed building or near doors,
windows and openings to the
house.
QUESTION: What are the
symptoms of Carbon Monoxide
Poisoning?
ANSWER: Depending on the
level of exposure, CO may cause
fatigue, weakness, chest pains
for those with heart disease,
shortness of breath upon exer-
tion, nausea, vomiting,
headaches, confusion, lack of
coordination, impaired vision,
loss of consciousness, and in
severe cases, death.
QUESTION: What should you
do if you think you have CO poi-
soning?
ANSWER: If you think you are
suffering from carbon monoxide
(CO) poisoning, you should get
fresh air immediately. Turn off all
combustion appliances and
leave the house. Go to an emer-
gency room. Be sure to tell the
physician that you suspect CO
poisoning. Don t ignore symp-

November is National Diabetes Month sponsored by the
American Diabetes Association.
Drs. Parrish and Youmans at Family Eye Care would like the
citizens of the LaBelle area to know that people who have had
diabetes for several years are at risk to develop a potentially
blinding condition called diabetic retinopathy and need to take
steps to protect their vision.
The cause of diabetic retinopathy it that, over time, diabetes
can weaken and cause changes in the small blood vessels that
nourish the retina, the delicate lining at the back of the eye con-
taining light-sensitive nerve cells needed for seeing. Looking
inside the eye with an instrument that allows direct viewing of
the blood vessels, the eye doctor can diagnose diabetic retinopa-
thy in its earliest stages when treatment is most effective.
At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of
ocular and medical complications of diabetes. Please call our
office at 863-675-0761 for more information or to set-up an
appointment.


toms, especially if more than
one person is feeling them. In
cases of severe CO poisoning,
call 911 emergency, services or
the Poison Information Center at
1-800-222-1222.
QUESTION: What can be
done to prevent COpPoisoning?
ANSWER: To prevent CO poi-
soning, ensure that all house-
hold combustion appliances
(fireplaces, stoves, water
heaters, furnaces) are properly
adjusted and working to manu-
facturers instructions and local
building codes and make sure
stoves and heaters are exhaust
vented to the outside and that
exhaust systems do not leak.
Do not use ovens and gas
ranges to heat your home. Do
not burn charcoal inside a
home, cabin, recreational vehi-
cle, or camper, and you never
leave a car or lawn mower
engine running in a shed or
garage, or in any enclosed or
partially enclose space. NEVER
use gas-powered generators or
pressure washers inside any
building or structure. Ventilating
a building or structure will not
prevent the buildup of life threat-
ening levels of CO. Do not
locate portable generators or
portable gasoline engines near


any opening of the house (win-
dows, doors, window air condi-
tioners, exhaust vents.)
QUESTION: What about car-
bon monoxide alarms?
ANSWER: Consider installing
CO alarms in your home. The
US Consumer Product Safety
Commission recommends the
installation of CO alarms in
every home. Install battery
operated CO alarms or plug-in
CO alarms with battery backup
according to manufacturers
installation instructions. The CO
alarm should be certified to the
requirements of the latest safety
standards for CO alarms (UL
2034, IAS 6-96, CSA 6.19.01)
REMEMBER: Carbon monox-
ide (CO) alarms can be used as a
backup but not as a replacement
for proper use, placement and
maintenance of your fuel-burn-
ing appliances or gas powered
portable equipment. Also,
understand that CO alarms are
designed to sound an alert at
fairly high levels. Lower level
CO exposure below the alarm
threshold could still contribute
to adverse health effects in sus-
ceptible individuals (persons
with heart or lung disease for
example).

Helping your child in the wake of Hurricane Wilma


By Cheryl Abney
My granddaughter McKenzie's
attitude and comment still cause
me to smile at her version of "If life
gives you lemons, make lemon-
ade." McKenzie loves critters -
any size, shape, or color. This
wanna-be-veterinarian looked at
the fallen tree and said with antici-
pation, "When the tree comes out,
I'm going to hunt worms!" Out of
the hurricane's damage and incon-
venience of no electric or hot
meals, she saw the advantage of
seeming disaster-collecting worms
from the exposed earth. Good
things, aside from worms, can


come out of disaster-such as
increased communication and
appreciation for the bonds of fami-
ly, friends and neighbors.
As your child returns to school,
they'll have the same demands of
study, homework, tests and per-
sonalities; but they'll also have the
additional stress of their Hurricane
Wilma experience. Your child's
behavior may change immediately,
next week, or even next month as a
result of the trauma they've experi-
enced. Each child is unique
though, and some may never get
upset enough to show distress sig-
nals. The following are a examples
of stress symptoms you may


encounter:
Behavior changes not usually
observed. A shy child may become
loud and aggressive, while an out-
going child may become quiet and
fearful.
Your child may express fear of
recurring storms.
Your child may revert to bed-
wetting and thumb sucking.
Your child may become very
clingy and not want to be away
from your side.
A child may act afraid of loud
noises, particularlywind and rain.
The child may fear sleeping
alone at night, being alone in their
own room, or sleeping without a


night light.
One of the best ways parents
can help their children cope with
stress is to invite them to tell you
how they feel and actively listen
and respond. Take some time
apart with your child to prompt
their sharing. A trip to the park is an
ideal opportunity to talk and listen
to your child. Getting in touch with
nature, whether hunting worms or
tossing a ball together, helps par-
ents and children alike lessen the
effects of stress. If distance and cir-
cumstances prevent a day apart,
consider taking your boxed lunch
to the backyard for a picnic; or lying
on a blanket beneath the stars. Your


openness to their questions and
brief one-on-one time can prepare
them to transition back to school
and normalcy. Continue to reas-
sure them, often, that you are there
to take care of them. As much as
possible, maintain a regular sched-
ule. You can assist your child in cre-
ating and giving pictures or stories
about the recent events. Spend
extra time with them at bedtime,
using the opportunity to talk and
comfort them. As you establish


order out of disorder in the days
ahead, may you find your upturned
lives rich in what is sometimes
taken for granted-each other; fami-
ly, friends and neighbors.

Water managers respond and assess


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District continues to
assess damage in response to the
onslaught of Hurricane Wilma and
continues to optimize operation of
the 1,700-mile regional water man-
agement canal system during the
aftermath of the storm. District
assessment teams found minimal
damage to water control struc-
tures, such as pumping stations,
and report that the system is
impaired but functional.
"While damage was minimal to
the structures," said Bob Howard,
the District's director of operations,
"telemetry and other communica-
tion with the structures are signifi-
cantly impaired because of damag-.
ing high winds. Restoration of
communication and data.teleme-
try is a top priority."
Significant wind damage was
reported at the District's field sta-
tion buildings in Clewiston, West
Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale,
Miami and Okeechobee Counties,
and minimal damage to buildings
in the Florida Keys and Collier
County.
"Generator fuel for the pump-
ing stations without power is also a


concern," Howard said, "but we
are working to secure more fuel."
Other assessment and response
activities include:
Field crews are removing
canal debris and making minor
repairs to water control structures.
Contractors are being procured to
assist with large tree removal in the
southern areas of the District.
Lake Okeechobee is estimat-
ed at 16.34 feet. Uprooted vegeta-
tion and high turbidity are reported
in the lake.
Water levels in the Upper
Kissimmee, Kissimmee River and
Lake Istokpoga are responding to
rainfall (estimated at 4-6 inches) in
that area. Lake Kissimmee has
reached its regulation level. Lake
Tohopekaliga and East Lake
Tohopekaliga are rising as inflow to
those lakes increased. Water con-
trol structure adjustments are
planned for field crews again today.
Storm-water flowing into
Lake Okeechobee from Fisheating
Creek, Nubbin Slough, Taylor
Creek and Lake Istokpoga outlets is
high. Inflow estimates at this time
are 22,000 cubic feet per second,
meaning the lake is expected to


rise.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers is considering initiation of
Lake Okeechobee flood-control
releases to the Caloosahatchee
River at outflow structure S-77.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers is not considering initiation
of Lake Okeechobee releases to
the St. Lucie River at this time
because the volume of storm-
water basin flow into the St. Lucie
River (C-44 Canal) is too large for
the Corps to begin discharges to
the east.
The District continues to opti-
mize operation of the regional
water management system during
the aftermath of the storm.
Rainfall south of Lake Okee-
chobee has been moderate, with
estimates of 2-4 inches at this time.
Water Conservation Area 2A
and 3A remain above schedule.
Flood-control water releases con-
tinue at the outflow structures (S-
11 and S-12 water control struc-
tures).
In the coastal canal systems,
the water control system is func-
tioning well. Power outages have
occurred at water control struc-


tures throughout the southern end
of the District, from Homestead,
Miami to Broward County. Gener-
ators are functioning to provide
backup power to those sites affect-
ed.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement continues to coordinate
with local governments and other
entities responsible for water con-
trol systems.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement Emergency Operations
Center remains activated.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional, gov-
ernmental agency that oversees
the water resources in the south-
ern half of the state 16 counties
from Orlando to the Keys. It is the
oldest and largest of the state's five
water management districts. The
agency mission is to manage and
protect water resources of the
region by balancing and improving
water quality, flood control, natural
systems and water supply. A key
initiative is cleanup and restoration
of the Everglades.

Wilma
Continued From Page 1
homes. Others with the means to
had long left the area in search of a
safer place.
The storm came early, moving
much faster than originally antici-
pated in Palm Beach County's
direction. In the morning in Belle
Glade, gusts signaled the coming
hurricane, the swaying trees in the
distance brought news of it. Later,
as the afternoon came, Wilma
arrived.
It hit Florida as a Category 3
storm, its fast-moving trek through
land keeping it from losing very
much of its force as it strode
through Southern Florida and the
Glades. The first half of the storm
shook things outside, before the
eye passed over the area, the sec-
ond half of the storm shaking
everything else that had been left
untouched. It seemed to carry
stronger winds and many of the
homes later damaged were dam-
aged more heavily as the last part of
the storm beat down.
The strange calm of the eye
made everything still, but it was the
dying fury of the storm in the weak-
ened rush of the winds that gave
notice that the storm had made its
way clearly onto the Atlantic.
Residents found themselves
without power, without water, and
some without homes.
Rescue officials, including local
chiefs of police and chief of fire
made their rounds in their cities to
take a first-hand view of the storm
damages. In some mobile home
parks in Belle Glade, fire personnel
rode in their engines and sorted
through the rubble of homes com-

uninhabitable, the roof having
been blown off. And the city"s
marina has been greatly affected
and left crippled, as well.
But even in the time of chal-
lenges, the good news was that no
one was killed, he said. As projec-
tions predicted the hurricane
would cross directly over the
Glades in the early forecasts, the
city began a campaign to inform
residents of the imminent danger.
and warn them to be safe.
"The first time I walked out and
saw the city, I prayed to God that
the people had listened, that no
one had taken the hurricane for
granted," Mr. Tate remembered. He
is satisfied now at the results.
According to City Manager
Houston Tate of Belle Glade, the
hurricane seems to have brought
out the best in city hall employees,
and residents in general. "This is
the best I've seen [Belle Glade],"
said Mr. Tate. "I've seen ordinary
people do extraordinary work
under difficult times even
though they have suffered too."
Experiencing considerable set-
backs due to the storm, city hall
employees nevertheless commit-
ted themselves to the task of help-
ing their fellow neighbors. One
employee, whose home on the
marina is now gone, still reported
to work and actively participated in
the effort to distribute ice and water
and other essentials to residents
throughout the Glades.
The distribution center set up at
the city's fire department drew
hundreds of people in the days fol-
lowing the storm. Bulk distribu-
tions were given to other organiza-
tions, including churches, to
ensure that everyone in need of
supplies had them and city officials
are proud to have taken part in the
distribution effort.
The plan now is to look for-
ward..
The city promises to work close-
ly with government agencies in the
post-hurricane effort to clean up
the city and help people back to


pletely destroyed in search of sur-
vivors, creeping carefully through
the mess in order to avoid stepping
on any possibly injured or dead.
Ethan Harris, a resident of the
715 Mobile Home Park near Belle
Glade stood outside his home
moments after the storm had sub-
sided and surveyed the damage to
his home. "I've lost everything," he
said, looking into his home from
the outside through a gaping hole
in its side. "Everything."
Because the home had lived
through several storms without
incident, Ethan felt confident. The
mobile home never had a chance.
His daughter and wife had left and
he stayed behind to weather the
storm in the mobile home, retreat-
ing to his bathroom when the walls
of the northern end of the trailer
bounced in and out and then
ripped out with the wind.
For several hours he felt the
movement of the trailer in the gusts
and, when he finally felt the winds
had died down, stepped out to find
the walls of his home had torn
apart, the inside of his home now
completely exposed. "After the eye
of the hurricane passed by, that's
what ruined me," Ethan said.
The destruction was evident
throughout the area.
Utility poles snapped like twigs
and their lines fell to the ground,
some of them in puddles the rain
had formed in the dirt. Semi trucks
faced their defeat, lying on their
side after being picked off the
ground. Heavy traffic lights dangled
in the air above cars or lay on the
streets in intersections of heavy traf-
fic.
In Pahokee, the palm trees lined
in rows parallel to the road at the
entrance fell and formed a physical
barrier to the residents who want-


their feet. One early focus of the city
is to ask FEMA to concentrate on
providing manufactured homes
built to a stronger standard than the
mobile homes that it now supplies
to hurricane-ravaged victims. The
energy should be placed on doing
as much as possible to avoid a
recurrence of what happened in
Wilma's wake, mobile homes
throughout the area torn by the
winds of the storm. Finding perma-
nent solutions seems to be the
city's goal.
Belle Glade is counting on the
support of legislative leaders in its
rehabilitation.
In Pahokee, perhaps the great-
est loss is in the city's marina,
which holds the hopes of officials
who work toward making the city a
tourist destination. The city works
in partnership .with: Everglades
Adventures, a resort business locat-
ed directlyon the marina with
access to Lake Okeechobee to
incubate the marina into some-
thing that might attract tourists
from all over to the small town.
Affected last year by the hurri-
canes, the marina was still in a
mode of restoration when Hurri-
cane Wilma hit. This latest hurri-
cane seems to have finished what
the first few could not and lifted to
the nearby sandy beaches the
resort and its grounds and build-
ings.
Even the trailer homes located
on the marina that housed families
displaced by last year's storms
were blown completely away by
Wilma and only rubble and trash
remained.
"I've seen it all," said Pahokee
City Manager Lillie Latimore who
rode out the storm at the com-
mand center set up at the city's
police department. "There is no
marina. I shed a few tears when I
saw the situation."
.Last week, Ms. Latimore kept
busy with the post-hurricane oper-
ations, working with department
heads in assessing damages and
coordinating emergency meetings
- a test in and of itself as more
than ten staff members
homes were lost in the storm. City
hall operated on a generator as the


ed to find an exit to the small town.
Cars drove back and forth in search
of one, looking through back roads
and trails for an answer and driving
over one homeowner's property to
reach a narrow way out, forcing
him to park his vehicle there to
keep the unwanted visitors away
- the only other route had been
closed the last several months for
construction.
In South Bay, an antenna fell on
the side of the Public Safety Depart-
ment building, and trees and
shrubs littered the area. In Belle
Glade, the marina faces a daunting
recovery effort, with much of it
now in shambles and boats and
mounds of trash now collecting on
the land nearby.
If there was a silver lining to any
of it, residents seemed to agree, it
was that the dike, long held to be
poked throughout with leaks and
holes, mostly held up and con-
tained the lake's water. The U.S.
Corps of Engineers promised it
would.
A man in his late 60s walked
along Martin Luther King Boule-
vard in Belle Glade after the storm
to find a nearby store ravaged. "I'm
walking, I thank the Lord for that,"
he said with a broken smile. "Could
just as well been swimming."
The Glades area in its entirety
now faces a recovery effort that
officials speculate will take months,
if not years, to completely recover
from. For the next year, the recov-
ery will be a key issue as the cities'
reach out to the government for
help and prepare for the long work
ahead.
All they hope for, they say, is that
2006's hurricane season comes
and goes, and takes the next one
with it.


power slowly began to turn on and
utility companies rushed, working
day and night, to restore the elec-
tricity in the Glades.
Spirits were high in Pahokee
too, Ms. Latimore said.
South Bay City Manager Tony
Smith reported extensive damage
in his city after the storm. Mr. Smith
explained that three of the mobile
home parks in South Bay had been
made the subjects of some of the
storm s fiercest winds and were
ruined.
South Bay City Hall too joined in
the relief effort. Packs of ice and
water were distributed in the city,
with staff personally visiting nearby
Lake Harbor to distribute essential
items there. Foods and "often for-
gotten pampers and baby formula"
were carted in vehicles and taken
to individuals in need of them. "The
county has been very good in han-
dling the logistics of the deliveries,"
said Mr. Smith.
The city has once again hired
private contractors to rid the city of
the mess that the hurricane has left.
Last year, South Bay seemed to
clear itself of the trash quicker than
most other communities, Mr. Smith
said, and officials hope to make
that claim again as the contractors
work to complete the job.
The nearby correctional facility
provided help to the city in its effort,
according to Mr. Smith.
Last week the city still struggled
in providing its residents with run-
ning water and sewer, as Mr. Smith
reported the lack of a generator to
power one of South Bay's lift sta-
tions, but he remained hopeful that
the problem would be resolved
quickly.
All officials in each of the three
cities said they looked forward to
restoring normalcy. Through these
efforts and more in the coming
months, they hope to do just that.
To some the hurricane seems
like a test here in the Glades. The
leaders say they are up to it.
Describing the work ahead,
Belle Glade City Manager Houston
Tate said surely, "We're here. We're
going to be here. We're going to get
through it."


SAVE UP TO 55%

ON LEADING PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS
Introducing the DemiDoseTM Pill Splitter


0ll

1= I L L 51=L IT'r E -=


> SAFE > ACCURATE > EASY-TO-USE


DemiDoseTM half-splits many high-priced brand name prescription
medications, and does so with 92% to 100% accuracy.
DemiDoseTM features different pill beds for different pill sizes within
particular families of medication. It is more accurate for more
medications than any other splitter on the market today. The
Doctor who designed DemiDoseT made it safe and easy to use
even for individuals with tremor disorders or visual impairments.

DemiDoseTM can save you between 35% and 55% on the cost of
many brand name prescription medications.


How is it possible to save
so much?
The secret behind saving 35%
to 55% on your monthly
prescription costs is that many
medications are "flat-priced."
"Flat-priced" means that all
tablet sizes of a medication cost
about the same. Because these
medications are flat-priced, an
80 mg tablet costs the same as a
40 mg tablet. Split it in half and
one 80 mg tab is equal to two
40 mg tabs.

After you consult with your MD or
Healthcare provider, and show
them your DemiDoseTM pill splitter
they should prescribe your medica-
tion at twice your current tablet
size, but indicate you take only 1/2
tablet daily. Instead of paying
for 30-tablets per month, you now
pay for 15-tablets that are twice
the size of what you now take.
When you half-split those larger
tablets, you use 'flat-pricing' to your
advantage.


DemiDoseTM accurately, easily and
safely splits leading brand prescrip-
tion medications used for:

> Cholesterol
> Heart Disease
> High Blood Pressure
> Thyroid
> Erectile Dysfunction
> Allergies
> Women's Health
> Mood
> Migraines

What medications can I split
with DemiDoseTM?
DemiDoseTM half-splits different


dose sizes
medications:
> Accupril
> Fosamax
> Levitra
> Levaquin
> Norvasc
> Premarin
> Synthrold
> Zocor
> Zyprexa


of the following


> Clalis
> Imitrex Oral
> Lipitor
> Lexapro
> Pravachol
> Prempro
> Viagra
> Zoloft
> Zyrtec


DemiDoseTM also comes with a
generic splitting bed for accurately
splitting other medications.

was at its front, and no one
expected the storm's backside to
become even more intense than
the front side. But all eyewitness
accounts conclude that the
storm's devastating backside was
completely unexpected.
"I was okay during the front
part of the storm," said Mr.
McClure. "But when the back eye
wall came through it was
something else. I've never seen
anything like I saw here that day."
What Mr. McClure recalled
was chilling, as he pointed to his
minivan, which was initially

converging on this area from all
over the country," he said. "Right
now (the city) is concentrating on


after having been submerged
under at least 12 feet of water.
"When the winds changed, it
brought the lake with it," he said.
"Everything you see here was
under water. Boats, houseboats,
and trailers were whipping by
me."
Mr. McClure's boat was
clipped several times, but didn't
take a direct hit by the wayward
vehicles. But what the loose vehi-
cles didn't do, Wilma's back eye
wall winds would. Mr. McClure's
roof was ripped off of his boat and
he wasn't sure if he would sur-
vive.
"It was like standing next to
twin hydraulic jet engines," he
said. "That's the best way I can
describe it."
Belle Glade residents slowly


what we have control over and that
is sewer and water."
Mr. Jones said that the city was
able to restore some water fairly
soon after the storm, but that resi-
dents will still need to be patient
while waiting for the water to reach
100 percent.
But in the meantime, Belle
Glade residents at least have some
relief in terms of gaining access to
water, although the water is
undrinkable unless boiled.
Mr. Jones also said that the city


came to view the devastation and
were saddened atwhat they saw.
"I used to come out here as a
kid and I've been coming here as
an adult all my life," said one resi-
dent. "It's heartbreaking to see
this small spot of paradise in this
condition."
The Belle Glade Marina will
eventually recover, like the rest of
the city. With patience and with
determination, months from now
it is th6 hope of the city and her
residents that Wilma, and what
she has caused, will be a distant
memory-- stories for residents to
share with newcomers around
marina campfires stories to
newcomers that will begin with,
"You should have been here
when Hurricane Wilma came
through."


is working hard to restore proper
sewer services.
"We have about 20 portable
generators that we should have
soon," he said. "Once we have
those generators up and running,
we'll have our sewer plant opera-
tional again."
As of press time, power was
already being restored to a small
percentage of the city of Belle
Glade. Progress toward restoring
power to the entire city is expected
to continue at a vigorous pace.

U.S. Sugar assesses Hurricane Wilma damage


Losses could
be significant
CLEWISTON "Our local
communities have been severely
damaged. We are working with
local officials and FP&L to try to
restore power to critical communi-
ty services. At this time, Clewiston
and Belle Glade are virtually with-
out power and running water.
Many area houses have been
destroyed and most of our employ-
ees are without basic services,"
said Robert Coker, senior vice pres-
ident, Public Affairs.
Coker said that the company is
preparing land near the Clewiston
Airport for FEMA housing and are
working to provide land for hurri-
cane and agricultural debris.
"We are trying to restore critical


administrative functions at U.S.
Sugar, and we have begun the
process of assessing damage
throughout our operations," Coker
said.
Sugar Operations
Harvest and processing opera-
tions on the eastern side (Bryant
Mill) were suspended late last
week as the hurricane moved
toward Florida.
Due to the approaching storm,
we did not begin our scheduled
harvest on the western side serving
the Clewiston Mill. The Clewiston
Refinery closed during the week-
end prior to the storm and is
expected to be back up and run-
ning in the next five days.
Sugar farming and processing
operations throughout the Glades
suffered substantial damage as a


result of Wilma's 100-plus mph
wind and rain. The sugarcane crop
has substantial damage across the
entire growing area.
The extent of the damage is not
known at this time, as we are in the
process of looking at each field,
many of which remain flooded. It
will be some time before we have
initial damage estimates.
Our sugar mills also suffered
structural damage, in particular the
cooling towers and sugar storage
warehouses. In fact, all of the sugar
mills and warehouses in the Glades
area have been hit hard. Storage
warehouses are a critical part of the
sugar processing, as raw sugar is
stored to be sold and refined
throughout the year. Equipment
shops have been damaged and our
entire operations are without
power.


U.S. Sugar's internal railroad
suffered significant damage as
locomotives and railcars were
blown over, around and off the
tracks due to hurricane and torna-
do forces. Railroad tracks also sus-
tained significant damage and
crossing guards have been blown
down. We are working closely with
DOT to deal with these issues.
At this time, we do not know
when sugarcane harvesting and
processing will resume.
Citrus Operations
Although Florida Citrus Mutual
released an original estimate of 10-
15-percent citrus crop loss, our
early assessment reveals that num-
ber seriously underestimates the
loss. From what we have seen in
our own and other area citrus
groves, approximately 40-50 per-


Alico assesses hurricane damage


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ:ALCO), one of the South's
best-known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, reported dam-
ages were incurred from hurricane
Wilma, a category three hurricane
that swept through southwest
Florida on Monday, Oct. 24.
John R. Alexander, Chairman
and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, "We
have sustained damages to a num-
ber of structures and crops in
Hendry and Collier Counties
including sugarcane, citrus and
vegetables due to hurricane
Wilma. We are currently in the
process of assessing the extent of
the damage. We should have a rea-
sonable estimate within the next
several weeks. The sugarcane and
citrus crops were insured under the
Federal Crop insurance program.
There were no major damages to
our Polk County operations."


About Alico
Alico, Inc., an agribusiness com-
pany operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, owns approxi-
mately 136,500 acres of land located
in Collier, Hendry, Lee and Polk
Counties. The company is involved
in various operations and activities
including citrus fruit production,
cattle ranching, sugarcane, sod pro-
duction, and forestry. The Company
also leases land for farming, cattle
grazing, recreation and oil explo-
ration, and is increasingly involved
in exploring real estate develop-
ment in and beyond its holdings.

cent of the fruit is on the ground.
Further fruit loss most probably
will occur from these hurricane-
damaged trees.
Our Southern Gardens Citrus
Processing facility suffered signifi-
cant structural damage, but it does
have the ability to operate. We plan


to begin salvage harvesting and
processing fruit immediately. We
intend to get as much of the
dropped fruit into the plant as pos-
sible to limit crop losses.
We will have more information
as our ongoing field-by-field dam-
age assessments are completed.

Emergency Response teams react


ORLANDO Benefiting from
a partnership built on the lessons
of Hurricane Andrew and
strengthened through eight major
hurricanes in Florida over the
course of 14 months the State
Emergency Response Team
(SERT) and FEMA officials' joint
Wilma Command at the State
Emergency Operations Center in
Tallahassee immediately put
response measures into place to
support the efforts of local emer-
gency responders following the
landfall of Hurricane Wilma.
"Communication is key in the
immediate aftermath of a hurri-
cane," said State Coordinating
Officer Craig Fugate. "Our joint
command enables us to leverage
state and federal resources to
respond swiftly to the needs of
affected Floridians."
With the disaster declaration
announced Monday by President
Bush, federal disaster assistance
for eligible individuals may include
grants for renting another place to
live if the home is uninhabitable,
minor repairs to make the home
safe and sanitary, and other imme-
diate needs, as well as low-interest
loans for uninsured losses.
"Before Wilma reached Flori-
da's West Coast, we had teams in
place close to the projected path
so that we could move in as quick-
ly as possible once the storm
passed," Federal Coordinating
Officer Justin DeMello said.
"We've equipped our teams with
satellite phones so that as they
assess the situation, they canr
report the needs of the communi-
ty to the command center and we
can immediately help our local


partners meet residents' needs."
The president's declaration
makes federal funding available to
affected individuals in Collier, Lee
and Monroe Counties. In addition,
federal funding is available to the
state and eligible local govern-
ments for debris removal and
emergency protective measures in
the counties of Brevard, Broward,
Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Indi-
an River, Lee, Martin, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, Okeechobee, Osceola,
Palm Beach, Polk, St. Lucie and
Sarasota.
More counties and additional
forms of assistance may be desig-
nated as assessments are com-
pleted in the affected areas. SERT
and FEMA are working together in
support of local emergency
responders in a number of ways,

including:
Commodities to Meet Imme-
diate Needs (Water, Ice, Meals) -
State commodities have arrived at
local staging areas in affected
counties, with FEMA supplies fol-
lowing closely behind to backfill
and ensure adequate supply to
meet immediate needs. State and
local officials have set up points of
distribution in areas without
power staffed by local, state and
FEMA personnel to provide ice,
water and meals to those in need.
Check with county or local emer-
gency managers for distribution
locations, which are expected to
open today.
DMAT (Disaster Medical
Assistance Teams) and National
Disaster Medical System Four
SERT and FEMA teams are pro-
viding support in hard-hit Monroe


County, with additional teams
ready to move into other affected
areas, if needed. The Coast Guard
and Florida National Guard are
assisting in transporting medical
personnel into affected counties
by helicopter. In addition,
approximately 160 personnel
from the federal National Disaster
Medical System teams are
engaged and assisting the state
with medical needs.
USAR (Urban Search and
Rescue) Four USAR task forces
are already conducting reconnais-
sance in the hard-hit areas of Mon-
roe, Glades, and Hendry counties.
USAR is led by the Unified Team,
comprised of Florida Urban
Search & Rescue, FEMA, Florida
Fish & Wildlife and Florida Depart-
ment of Forestry components.
Four additional teams stand ready
to be deployed in other affected
areas, including Southeast Florida,
if necessary.
PDA (Preliminary Damage


Assessment) Teams Preliminary
damage assessments are conduct-
ed by joint local, state, and federal
teams. SERT and FEMA officials
are in South Florida to begin
assessments for Public Assistance.
The joint teams led by local offi-
cials will begin in the four south-
ernmost counties and work their
way north over then next three
days. Teams will also begin con-
ducting Individual Assistance
assessments in Southeast Florida
(Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm
Beach, Hendry, and Glades coun-
ties) as soon as local officials give
the go-ahead and direction.
To apply for disaster assistance,
those who sustained damages or
loss from Hurricane Wilma
should log on to www.fema.gov
or call (800) 621-FEMA (3362).
The TTY number for those with
speech or hearing impairment is
(800) 462-7585. Both numbers are
available 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
