I 111 1
a 16510 00017 7


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Twenty-six-year-old Sabrina
Andrews thought after her home
was destroyed in Hurricane
Wilma that the federal govern-
ment would step up to help cover
her losses. At the very least they
would provide her with something
to help her start a hew life along
with her two children in Georgia.
Her house in Clewiston had
been left devastated, having
ripped clear in half. The posses-
sions she had purchased in the
few years she lived there were
gone, too, even the videogames
that kept her two boys occupied.
She would not receive help
from' FEMA, though. Weeks after


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Here's a
story: FEMA, the government's
main branch of operations in
times of disaster, did a little
leaning on somebody else's
shoulder the shoulders of
Glades Central High School stu-
dent Vickie Boulin Linda.
According to FEMA repre-
sentatives, the local girl selfless-
ly pledged her time, energy and
patience toward a task that, in
the end, helped many people in
the area who might otherwise
have had a harder time had she
not been there to support them.
Vickie provided translation
services for nothing in return,
and only the desire to help her
fellow neighbor.
As she walked one day near
the FEMA disaster response
unit outside of the city hall
building in Belle Glade, Vickie
noticed how difficult it was for
some people to communicate
with the FEMA workers. The
people didn't speak English and
understood it very little.


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE With sever-
al weeks under his belt, the city's
new public safety director, Ken-
neth Holley, now has a clear view
of the challenges ahead. The new
director, with decades of law
enforcement experience in his
background, takes to the task.
Mr. Holley didn't always want
to be a police officer. That much
is true, he said Jast week at his
office space at the Belle Glade
Police Department. Majoring in
Sociology at Bethune Cookman
College, the path just led that
way.
His first sworn position came
as a deputy with the Glades
County Sheriff's Office. Living in


moving out of the ruined home
and with her parents, she received
a letter telling her she was ineligi-
ble for help.
Hers is a case that seems to
have a pronounced resonance in
the Glades. It is a situation that
hundreds of others here have
come to experience in the wake of
the storm.
Suffering with bipolar disorder,
and responsible for a child that
may have undiagnosed autism,
Sabrina looked forward to help
from FEMA with all the small hope
a person in that situation can ever
aim to muster.
Her insurance company came
forward to help, only with an
amount too low for such a big


loss.
In the end, she only hoped
FEMA would one day tell her why
they could not help.
At a town hall meeting last
week in Belle Glade, FEMA did.
The meeting, organized by the
city of Belle Glade and held at the
city hall chambers, involved the
three key agencies responsible for
post-hurricane work: The Ameri-
can Red Cross, the Small Business
Administration and FEMA.
It gave residents an opportunity
to speak directly to FEMA repre-
sentatives, and representatives the
chance to properly inform storm
victims as to their collective
recourse. The agencies took the
blame for the things that went


"She's been a tremendous help. She worked
tirelessly as a translator."
Tom Kerr,
FEMA Site Manager


She decided then that she
was going to pitch in to help.
Since that time, Vickie has
spent her evenings after school
and her weekends at the site,
making sure that every person
that came to receive help truly
did receive the proper help they
needed.
When he saw her, City Man-
ager Houston Tate thought
FEMA had brought in a transla-
tor from some other city to
help, stunned when he learned
it was one of Belle Glade's own
students.
The girl was recognized at a
recent meeting of the city of
Belle Glade.
A letter on behalf of the
commission cited her for her
"willingness to share skills with
others during times of need."
FEMA representatives, and


the staff she worked alongside
with, had some kind words to
say about the girl. They present-
ed her with a bouquet of flow-
ers in appreciation, as well as a
check to her on behalf of the
FEMAworkers.
"She's been a tremendous
help," said Tom Kerr, FEMA Site
Manager. "She worked tireless-
ly as a translator."
City leaders also had good
things to say about the girl.
"You show that people of
the Glades, we do things right,"
said Mayor Steve Wilson.
Vickie smiled shyly as she
took it all in.
City Manager Tate was a little
more demonstrative of his
pride in her. "I'm going to give
you a big ol' Christmas hug," he
said as embraced the young
student.


Moore Haven, it was the only job
he could find. His experience
there was unique at the time, one
of the first black officers with the
department.
"They told me they had not
had a qualified black applicant,"
,Mr. Holley remembers. "Even
though they respected me for my
knowledge and fairness, it was
difficult because itwas lonely."
What followed was over 30
years of law enforcement experi-
ence, leading him all the way to
top administrative positions. His
renown came in his handling of
jail operations. To inmates, his
philosophy has always been,
"You're a human being, we're
going to treat you like a human
being."


Mr. Holley's decision to come
to Belle Glade came after being
approached by Chief Albert
Dowdell. The chief invited Mr.
Holley to take an exam for a lieu-
tenant's position shortly before
the position for public safety
director was created. Mr. Holley,
now retired from the Glades
County Sheriff's Office and work-
ing part-time for the Geo Group,
applied for the director job.
He and the chief had gotten to
know one another well while
Chief Dowdell worked as an offi-
cer with, the South Bay Police
Department. Of Chief Dowdell,
Mr. Holley said, "A lot of our
philosophies are similar, only

wrong, focused on what went
right, and offered to continue
working with residents in the hur-
ricane relief effort.
In that way, one by one, mem-
bers of the audience spoke up
about their concerns, citing every-
thing from what they said were
insensitive inspectors ruling out
their eligibility before setting even
a foot in their homes, to the trou-
ble they have in now acquiring a
house in which to live.
One member of the audience,
a man, turned to the Hispanic
crowd in the chambers to inspire
them to ask the questions that
have pestered them through their
ordeal. "Let us hear and speak
with one voice," he said in Span-


ish. "We as a community want
answers. We know how much
time is lost in telephone calls."
One misconception FEMA
cleared at the meeting as in
Sabrina's -7- case one of the most
common questions involves those
victims of the storm with home-
owner's insurance.. Most of the
insured were indeed turned down
by the governmental agency fol-
lowing the storm because FEMA
does not pay the deductible
amount that repairs to those
homes require, representatives
said.
In some cases, those
deductible amounts easily enter

Director will




resigned


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Following
a decade of employment with
the city of Belle Glade, Stacie
Rimes, finance director,
resigned recently from her
position at the city.
The director, whose work in
handling the city's budget '%on
her. numerous citations for
excellence in financial report-
ing, has taken a job with a pri-
vate company in Wellington.
Her last month with the city
was November.
According to City Manager


Houston Tate, Ms. Rimes'
departure came under amica-
ble circumstances. Mr. Tate
said Ms. Rimes' new job will
offer her the flexibility to spend
more time with her family, pos-
sibly the largest factor in her
decision, he said.
"The director. of finance is
an integral part of workshops"'
Mr. Tate said, referring to the
after-hours meetings often held
.at city hall in which the director
is often a part. "This is a
demanding job," Mr. Tate con-

Crist cautions holiday shoppers to prevent ID theft


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist advised
Floridians to be careful when
using credit and debit cards to pay
for gifts during this holiday shop-
ping season in order to avoid
becoming victims of identity theft.
Crist, who convened the state's
second annual Identity Theft Sum-
mit in Tampa, said unsuspecting
holiday shoppers create inviting
targets for ID thieves.
Crist advised consumers to be
careful when reaching into their
wallet to pay for gift purchases, to
make sure no one is lurking to
steal a credit card number. At the
same time, he said, the crowds
and turmoil at shopping centers
makes it vitally important that par-
ents also keep a close eye on small
children.
"Whfen holiday shopping, it is
easy to become distracted while
looking for the perfect gift and the
best, bargain," said Crist. "Hectic
shopping malls can be a breeding
ground for rip off artists and other
criminals, and Floridians should
take steps to protect themselves,
their loved ones and their personal
information."
Crist said the holiday season is
the best time for the Identity
Theft Summit, which brought
together officials from law
enforcement, the retail industry,
banking and other sectors to dis-
cuss ways to reduce ID theft in


Florida. The Attorney General's
Fraud Hotline has received some
3,400 calls concerning identity
theft since it was instituted in
2003. According to the Federal
Trade Commission, a total of
38,325 Floridians filed fraud or
identity theft complaints in 2004,
and almost one-third of the
16,062-identity theft complaints
concerned credit card fraud.
Crist offered the following sug-
gestions for Floridians to avoid
identity theft while shopping:
When making purchases at
retail stores
Don't take out credit cards
before you get to the register. This
will allow you to control the num-
ber of people who see the infor-
mation on your cards and will
reduce the chance of misplacing
them. Protect your credit numbers
from the people around you.
Beware of others who have
cell phones in their hands but are
not making calls. Clever thieves
are using cell phones to take pho-
tographs or videos of credit cards
or personal information.
Carry only the credit or debit
cards your plan to use for holiday
purchases. If your wallet or purse
is stolen, fewer accounts will be
affected.
When making purchases with
the Internet and cell phones
Make online purchases
through secure Web sites from

In an Emergency
If you are a victim of identity

ask the national credit bureaus to

Taking the Christmas I.Q. test now


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
When the Clewiston Library
invited me to display some of my
nativity sets this year, I knew that
one of the sets I wanted to put on
display was one made for me out
of FIMO clay. It is a work of art,
and I love the expression on
Joseph's face a true proud
poppa!
But what I love more than the
masterful creation of the nativity
set is the masterful story behind
the creation. I came across the
artist and her work at a craft show,
and asked her if she might make a
nativity set for me. She was will-
ing, but had very little knowledge
of the characters of the nativity.
I shared with her the Christmas
story and we conversed many
times about the story and the tra-
ditional and historical figures who
might have been present at the
birth. An amazing thing hap-
pened. As she started making my
nativity set she started living the
story with the figures she made.
By the time she had finished my
nativity, she had embraced the


Christmas story fully, as well as
Christ as her lord. Angels and
nativity sets became her passion,
and her cre-
ations became
a means of tes-
timony for her.
How is your
knowledge of
the Christmas
story? How
fully have you
embraced it?
How is your John
Christmas testi- HIcks
mony?
While a campus minister at
Stetson University, I came up with
a Christmas I.Q. challenge. If any-
one could answer all of the ques-
tions correctly, I would treat them
to dinner and all of the ice cream
they could eat. I extend the chal-
lenge to you! Answer all of the
questions completely and I will
treat you to dinner and ice cream
at any of our Wednesday Night
Fellowship Dinners. Just come
and claim your prize!
We have our nativity sets, our
Christmas cards, and our Christ-
mas carols, which is great. The


problem is that legend has been
busy with them over the years.
This I.Q. test helps bring some of
these legends to light. Test your
knowledge!
. 1. As long as Christmas has
been celebrated, it has been on
Dec. 25. (T or F).
2. Joseph was from: (A). Beth-
lehem, (B). Jerusalem, (C).
Nazareth, (D). Egypt, (E). Chica-
go, (F). None of the above.
3. How did Joseph and Mary
travel to Bethlehem? (A). Joseph
walked, Mary rode a donkey. (B).
Mary walked, Joseph rode a don-
key. (C). They both walked. (D).
They both rode. (E). By boat. (F).
By chariot. (G). Who Knows?
4. What did the innkeeper tell
Mary and Joseph? (A). "Come
back after the Christmas rush and
I should have some vacancies."
(B). "I have a stable you can use."
(C). "There is no room at the inn."
(D). Both B and C. (E). None of
the above.
5. Jesus was delivered in a: (A).
Stable. (B). Manger. (C). Cave.
(D). Barn. (E). Unknown
6. A Manger is a: (A). Stable for
domestic animals. (B). Wooden


hay storage bin. (C). Feeding
Trough. (D). Barn
7. Which animals does the
Bible say were present at Jesus'
birth? (A). Cows, sheep, goats.
(B). Cows, donkeys, sheep. (C).
Lowing cattle. (D). Misc. barnyard
animals. (E). Lions, tigers, and
bears. (F). None of the above.
8. Where do we find the Christ-
mas story in order to check on all
of these ridiculous questions? (A).
Matthew. (B). Mark. (C). Luke.
(D). John. (E). All of the above.
(F). A and B. (G). A and C. (H). A,
B, and C. (I). Genesis. (J). The 4
Gospels. (K). The Epistles. (L).
Television.
ANSWERS: (1). False. Not until
the fourth century did it settle on
the 25th. (2). A. See Luke 2:3,4.
(3). G. The Bible doesn't say. (4).
E. No word about the innkeeper.
See Luke 2:7. (5). E. No word
about it. See Luke 2:7 (He was
placed in a manger.) (6). C. (7). F.
The Bible doesn't specify. (8). G.
Mark begins with John the Baptist;
John with "the Word".
Share the story. Share the love.
Share the Savior!


Letters to the Editor


No bathroom,
no business
I visit numerous stores in the
Glades and 90 percent of the stores
in the Glades, they will take your
money, but you are not good
enough to use their bathrooms.
They claim that their bathrooms are
out of order or they are just not
going to allowyou to use their bath-
rooms. Something needs to be
done about this. We need to get this
stopped in the cities of Pahokee,
Belle Glade and South Bay. It's total-
ly ridiculous for people to be able to
go in your store and spend money,
but they're not good enough to use
your restrooms. I'm sick and I'm
tired of it.
Commissioner John Wilson
of South Bay

Raiders excel
in classroom too
Dear editor:
As a testament to the talent of
our students at Glades Central High
School, we have 14 winners in
three categories of the annual
'America's Young Heroes" contest.
That accounts for 20 percent of the
total winners in the contest. That
alone is impressive; however, it is
even more remarkable considering
that the contest is open to students
in all middle and high schools in the
Palm Beach County School District.
One of our students, Oscar Mar-
tinez, won in two separate cate-
gories. There were winners in the
eleventh and twelfth grade Essay
category, eleventh grade Poetry cat-
egory, and all grade levels in the
Poster/Greeting Card category. Mrs.
Sarah Bennett, Mr. Mark Schultz,
and Mr. Steve McGowan are the
teachers who submitted the win-
ning entries on behalf of the stu-
dents, and the students who won
are as follows: Oscar Martinez,
Selomit Vargas, Jaime Olivia, Galin-
da Cristobal, Tanisha Jones, Charlie
Crayton, Jarrell Moore, Ana
Escobedo, La'Von Towns, Joykeria
Pittman, Christina Graham,
Dairellie Beavers, and Jesus Garza.
Sincerely,
Steve McGowan

Senate Nelson's
year-end review
Dear editor:
As the New Year quickly
approaches and I reflect on 2005, I
feel honored to serve and represent
the state of Florida in the U.S. Sen-
ate, particularly as we grapple with
the big issues that are facing the
nation today.
The war in Iraq, oil-drilling in the
eastern Gulf of Mexico, FEMA, Hur-
ricane Wilma, Supreme Court
nominations and even corruption
within our own government are
just a few of the year's headlines in
our state and across the country.
In Congress this year, I've had to
fight many powerful interests, from
insurance companies to oil compa-
nies to the big banks. And I'm con-
tinuing to fight everyday to preserve
Social Security for our seniors, to
protect the privacy of everyday citi-
zens from hackers and identity
thieves, and to ensure that our chil-
dren and grandchildren receive a
good education and a good-paying
job.
As the Congress finishes up
before the holidays, I am reminded
of all the victories we have achieved
for Florida this year. This fall, with
the help of a bipartisan group of
Florida's Congress members, I suc-
cessfully blocked a provision that
would have subjected Florida to oil-
drilling 25 miles off the coast. My
legislation to increase military sur-
vivor benefits will now help
improve the lives of 55,000 widows,
widowers, and orphans. I made
sure that a new Florida program
designed to electronically track sex-
offenders after they leave jail
received $2 million in federal funds.
And Florida conservation projects
received $140 million at my
request.


I'm already looking towards the
coming year with optimism. In
November, the Senate came
remarkably close to passing my leg-
islation to give seniors more time to
enroll in the new prescription drug
program, and I feel confident that
we will successfully pass this provi-
sion in the NewYear.
In addition, I'll continue to
demand full accountability from
FEMA and will fight to increase
NOAA funding to better prepare
Florida for future hurricane sea-
sons. And I'll do everything within
my capacity to make sure oil drilling
stays away from Florida's coasts
permanently.
I'm committed to addressing
the everyday concerns and prob-
lems of my constituents in 2006,
and although we face many chal-
lenges, I remain optimistic for the
future of our great state of Florida
and our country.
Bill Nelson
Florida's senior U.S. senator

Don't forget the
lessons of Wilma
Dear editor:
As the fog surrounding the after-
math of Hurricane Wilma dissi-
pates we have all begun to wonder
why it was so thick'after a weak,
Category 1 storm. Despite the fact
that Wilma covered a much larger
area than most previous storms,
doesn't it seem like South Florida
should have survived this hurricane
without much fuss?
Water and ice shortages, never-
ending power outages, endless
lines at the few working gas sta-
tions, and thousands of citizens
unable to live in their homes as they
hoped to find shelter. Doesn't this
all seem a little too Biblical for Flori-
da, a state that is hit by more hurri-
canes than any other in the union
and, therefore, should be the most
prepared?
The simple fact is a hurricane
cannot make cultural, racial, or
economic distinctions in where it
chooses to strike. It's time we
acknowledged that these storms
are becoming stronger, more fre-
quent, and can hit anywhere. We
have to ask ourselves: is the govern-
ment prepared; are our utilities and
basic services prepared; are we, as
citizens, prepared? Though we will
be asking these questions well into
next year, I can assure you that my
colleagues in the Florida Senate
and I are working tirelessly to
ensure that there is no repeat of the
devastation of Hurricane Wilma.
I have already filed two bills in
regards to the state's emergency
preparedness with plans to file
more. The first will require the state
to create a network of well-placed
storage facilities to quickly start the
flow of supplies after a storm. The
second will require the state to
keep a list of unoccupied, state-
owned buildings that could be used
as temporary shelter in the event
the current shelter system becomes
full. I am also working on a bill that
would provide flexible funding for
family needs in the aftermath of a
storm.
However, I am not alone in this
effort to better prepare our state for
next year's hurricane season. Sena-
tor Gwen Margolis (D-35) has intro-
duced a bill that would help nursing
homes build emergency power sys-
tems for use during a storm. Sena-
tor "Skip" Campbell (D-32) has pro-
posed legislation that would
strengthen consumer protections
during a storm as well as provide
better tax relief for supplies. Senator
Steven Geller (D-31) is recom-
mending that the state require gas
stations to be equipped with gener-
ators to avoid agonizingly long lines
at the pump. And Senator Ron
Klein (D-30) has asked the Gover-
nor and state legislature to consider
a bill during December's special
session that would create a special
task force to investigate the pre-
paredness of the state's utilities.
My colleagues and I cannot
watch our fellow citizens fend for
themselves as disaster relief slowly


makes its way into South Florida.
However, we recognize that the
public must be better aware of the
threats in front of them, both before
a storm, and after. We need to bet-
ter educate families on how to pre-
pare, endure, and recover from a
storm. We saw a surge in aware-
ness after Hurricane Andrew, but it
eventually faded away. Ensuring
that storm preparedness is always
emphasized is something I will per-
sonally be pursuing as this hurri-
cane season' ends and we plan for
next year's. As citizens of this great
state we cannot forget the lessons
of Hurricane Wilma, not in this sea-
son, or those to come.
Senator LarceniaJ. Bullard (D-
39)

Remember my birthday
Dear editor:
As you well know, we are get-
ting closer to my birthday. Every
year there is a celebration in my
honor and I think that this year the
celebration will be repeated. Dur-
ing this time there are many people
shopping for gifts, there are many
radio announcements, TV com-
mercials, and in every part of the
world everyone is talking that my
birthday is getting closer and closer.
It is really very nice to know,
that at least once a year, some peo-
ple think of me. As you know, the
celebration of my birthday began
many years ago. At first people
seemed to understand and be
thankful of all that I did for them,
but in these times, no one seems to
know the reason for the celebra-
tion. Family and friends get togeth-
er and have a lot of fun, but they
don't know the meaning of the cel-
ebration.
I remember that last year there
was a great feast in my honor. The
dinner table was full of delicious
foods, pastries, fruits, assorted nuts
and chocolates. The decorations
were exquisite and there were
many, many beautifully wrapped
gifts. But, do you want to know
something? I wasn't invited. I was
the guest of honor and they didn't
remember to send me an invita-
tion.
The party was for me, but when
that great day came, I was left out-
side, they closed the door in my
face-and I wanted to be with
them and share their table.
In truth, that didn't surprise me
because in the last few years all
close their doors to me. Since I was

not invited, I decided to enter the
party without making any noise. I
went in and stood in a corner. They
were all drinking; there were some
who were drunk and telling jokes
and laughing at everything. They
were having a great time. To top it
all, this big fat man all dressed in
red wearing a long white beard
entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-
Ho! He seemed drunk. He sat on
the sofa and all the children ran to
him, saying: "Santa Claus, Santa
Claus"...as if the party were in his
honor!
At 12 mid-night all the people
began to hug each other; I extend-
ed my arms waiting for someone
to hug me and do you
know...no one hugged me.
Suddenly they all began to
share gifts. They opened them one
by one with great expectation.
When all had been opened, I
looked to see if, maybe, there was
one for me. How would you feel if
on your birthday everybody shared
gifts and you did not get one? I then
understood that I was unwanted at
that party and quietly left.
Every year it gets worse. People
only remember to eat and drink,
the gifts, the parties and nobody
remembers me. I would like this
Christmas that you allow me to
enter into your life.
I would like that you recognize
the fact that almost two thousand
years ago I came to this world to
give my life for you, on the cross, to
save you. Today, I only want that
you believe this with all you heart.
I want to share something with
you. As many didn't invite me to
their party, I will have my own cele-
bration, a grandiose party that no
,one has ever imagined, a spectacu-
lar party.
I'm still making the final
arrangements. Today I am sending
out many invitations and there is
an invitation for you. I want to
know if you wish to attend and I
will make a reservation for you and
write your name with golden let-
ters in my great guest book. Only
those on the guest list will be invit-
ed to the party. Those who don't
answer the invitation will be left
outside.
Do you know how you can
answer this invitation? It is by
extending it to others whom you
care for.
I'll be waiting for all of you to
attend my party this year.
See you soon-I love you!
Jesus

Claims to be from FBI,
instead releases virus

TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist warned
Floridians of a rapidly spreading
electronic mail scam that tries to
deceive recipients into believing
a message is from the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
.Those receiving the e-mail are
told that the FBI has monitored
their Internet use and deter-
mined that they are guilty of
accessing illegal websites.
The e-mail instructs recipients
to open an attachment and
answer a series of questions.
Instead of containing questions
from the federal law enforcement
agency, the attachment actually
unleashes a computer virus. The e-
mail appears to be authentic, as
the originating e-mail address is
either mail@fbi.gov, post@fbi.gov
or admin@fbi.gov. Other originat-
ing addresses are possible.


With the e-mail coming from
such an official-sounding
source, the recipient is enticed to
open the attachment, which
contains a variant of the
w32/sober virus. If the program
within the attachment is execut-
ed, the virus.- a type of "Trojan
horse" that appears to be inno-
cent but is not is launched
and may adversely affect the
user's computer.
These e-mails did not come
from the FBI, and the bureau
strongly encourages computer
users not to open such attach-
ments. If received, this email
should be deleted without the
user opening it. The FBI is inves-
tigating the matter, and the Flori-
da Attorney General's Office is
monitoring the situation after
being alerted to the existence of
the bogus e-mail by the FBI. The
Attorney General's Office has
already received its first com-
plaint from a consumer harmed
by the virus.

hart, W4KPG, was re-elected as
president of the Big Lake Amateur
Radio Club for the 2006 year.
His office represents the group of
A.R.R.L affiliated radio armatures in
the Hendry-Glades area as well as
the western portion of Palm Beach
County covers the southern half
of the Big Lake area. He will work to

region, including the civil defense
components of radio operation.
During the meeting, expressions
of interest were reviewed by local
governmental officers about provid-
ing emergency communications
and training radio operations, it has
proven to be a key part of amateur
service with presentation before
congress by the President of the
American Radio Relay League. On
Saturday, the 26th of November,
several members of the Big Lake
Amateur Radio Club attended the
regional "hamfest" in Okeechobee.

President Rinehart surveyed the
group and found that the local radio
group has a sufficient number of
persons to provide for training and
testing of interested persons in help-
ing them obtain, ammeter radio

system of volunteer examiners to
test licensure candidates and
enough qualified "VE.'s" live in the
area to administer the license exam-
inations as well as to provide the
coursework needed.

Crist cautions holiday


shoppers to prevent ID theft


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist advised
Floridians to be careful when using
credit and debit cards to pay for
gifts during this holiday shopping.
season in order to avoid becoming
victims of identity theft. Crist, who
convened the state's second annu-
al Identity Theft Summit in Tampa,
said unsuspecting holiday shop-
pers create inviting targets for ID
thieves.
Crist advised consumers to be
careful when reaching into their
wallet to pay for gift purchases, to
make sure no one is lurking to steal
a credit card number. At the same
time, he said, the crowds and tur-
moil at shopping centers makes it
vitally important that parents also
keep a close eye on small children.
"When holiday shopping, it is
easy to become distracted while
looking for the perfect gift and the
best bargain," said Crist. "Hectic
shopping malls can be a breeding
ground for rip off artists and other
criminals, and Floridians should
take steps to protect themselves,
their loved ones and their personal
information."
Crist said the holiday season is
the best time for the Identity Theft
Summit, which brought together
officials from law enforcement, the
retail industry, banking and other
sectors to discuss ways to reduce
ID theft in Florida. The Attorney
General's Fraud Hotline has
received some 3,400 calls concern-
ing identity theft since it was insti-


tuted in 2003. According to the Fed-
eral Trade Commission, a total of
38,325 Floridians filed fraud or
identity theft complaints in 2004,
and almost one-third of the 16,062-
identity theft complaints con-
cerned credit card fraud.
Crist offered the following sug-
gestions for Floridians to avoid
identity theft while shopping:
When making purchases at
retail stores
Don't take out credit cards
before you get to the register. This
will allow you to control the num-
ber of people who see the informa-
tion on your cards and will reduce
the chance of misplacing them.
Protect your credit numbers from
the people around you.
Beware of others who have
cell phones in their hands but are
not making calls. Clever thieves are
using cell phones to take photo-
graphs or videos of credit cards or
personal information.
Carry only the credit or debit
cards your plan to use for holiday
purchases. If your wallet or purse is
stolen, fewer accounts will be
affected.
When making purchases with
the Internet and cell phones
Make online purchases
through secure Web sites from
companies you trust.
If someone claiming to be a
representative of your bank or
lending institution, or a business
with which you have an estab-
lished account, asks you to provide


account information over the Inter-
net, do not do so. This is not a legiti-
mate request for information, but
is instead a scam called "phishing".
Legitimate banks and businesses
entities already have that informa-
tion and do not need to ask you for
it.
Keep your billing information
private and avoid sharing it via cell
phone, especially in a location
where a stranger could overhear
and write down the information.
Handling the Documentation of
Credit and Purchases
Take all receipts with you so
that no one else picks them up. If
you throw away your receipts, tear
them up first.
Look at credit card statements
carefully to check for charges you
did not make. Contact the credit
card company right away if you
find any problems.
In an Emergency
If you are a victim of identity
theft, report to the police and then
ask the national credit bureaus to
place a fraud alert on your credit
report. Tell banks and creditors
involved that you question the
charges or accounts. Keep records
of telephone calls and follow up in
writing with credit bureaus, banks
and creditors.
Victims may call the Attorney
General's Fraud Hotline at (866)
966-7226 (1-866-9-NO-SCAM).
They may also visit the Attorney
General's Web site at http://myflori-

Legislation extends
tax relief
'through 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) voted in favor of H.R.
4297, the Tax Relief Extension
Reconciliation Act of 2005. The
legislation passed the U.S. House
by vote of 234-197.
"The House took vital steps to
prevent tax increases by extend-
ing tax relief and ensuring contin-
ued economic growth in our"
country. Tax relief for dividends
and capital gains is a direct result
of the strong and vibrant econo-
my we see today. According to the
Joint Committee on Taxation,
over 60 percent of Americans
receiving capital gains or dividend
income have incomes at or below
$100,000 annually," said Con-
gresswoman Harris. "Our policies
are working and we must extend
these provisions to give families,
businesses, and investors the con-
fidence and certainty to continue
on our path of long-term eco-
nomic growth."
The key provisions in this legis-
lation prevent raising taxes by


extending the reduced tax rates
on capital gains and dividend
income through 2010. Since the
tax rates on capital gains and divi-
dends were reduced in May 2003:
The economy has grown at
an average annual rate of 4.1 per-
cent.
4.2-million new jobs have
been created in this country.
Government tax revenues
have increased 10 percent annu-
ally.
According to the Treasury
Department, 24-million families
benefited by an average of almost
$950 on there 2004,tax returns.
Seven-million beneficiaries were
seniors who received an average
benefit of $1,231.
"The Federal government does
not have a revenue problem, we
have a spending problem. One of
the first steps toward solving this
problem.is to return to Americans
their hard-earned dollars so that
they may save, invest or spend as
they choose. Our next step must
be to examine our spending prac-
tices and eliminate government
waste," concluded Congress-
woman Harris.
In response to the Federal Gov-
ernment's 39-percent spending
increase in just three years, Con-

According to Robin Kish,

the district is working with a

wide search for the new CEO.
According to Ms. Kish, the search

He is grateful to have the oppor-
tunity to work in Belle Glade.
"Right now, I love it. Unequivo-
cally," the director said of his new
job. "I have really enjoyed it."
He is constantly impressed at
the potential of the youth in the
Glades and works toward reaching
them before they take the wrong
path. "I'm always amazed by the
talent pool, not just athletics," he
said. "Every time I see a kid suc-
ceed, it's just the greatest evalua-
tion I can get."
Of course, not everything is well
and he understands that.
"Belle Glade is not different
from anyplace else," said Mr. Hol-
ley. "You have your undesirable ele-

different from the norm. He
describes it as being closer associ-

large amount at once, their next
option is to apply for a loan under
the SBA, which can provide up to
$200,000 in loans to replace a

personal possessions.
Several who had worked with

qualifications to serve as CEO,
with a focus on strong financial
skills and experience in smaller
hospitals in rural settings.
It is expected that the district
will make a final decision in Feb-
ruary.
The hospital's top position
became available after Dan Aran-
da announced his resignation
earlier this year. The hospital
administrator said he felt he had
done what he set out to accom-
plish and ended his one-year
employment with the hospital

Glades General Hospital had
previously been owned by a pri-

taken, if necessary, his approach
can vary depending on the attitude
of the subject.
Mr. Holley's main tasks as pub-
lic safety director at the moment
are, chiefly, code enforcement and
the hurricane relief effort. Chief
Dowdell handles the day-to-day
business of the police department.
Mr. Holley has given residents a
chance to clean up after the storm,
understanding how difficult it may
be to some to clear out the debris
and the trash the hurricane left. As
a result, the code enforcement has
been somewhat relaxed during
that period, though the unit still
responded to important matters.
To stay busy, Mr. Holley has
found himself working alongside
relief agencies and matching up
victims of the storm with organiza-
tions that can help them.
He looks forward to the New
Year, when he and the six newly-
certified code enforcement
employees will again take to clean-

mation continues to cause delays.
"People are in a personal crisis,"
said Cynthia Laramore of Belle
Glade. "People are still living in
half-trailers and apartments with-
out roofs."
For their part, FEMA seemed
eager to distribute the information
at the meeting, urging residents
who felt their cases had not been
properly reviewed to meet with
case workers set up outside the
meeting place. "FEMA is a door
with many keys," one of the repre-
sentatives said.
"I'm telling people they should
be attentive, and almost adamant,
in making sure that their case is
heard," said Brian Gibbons, with
FEMA's public information depart-
ment after the meeting. "Some
inspectors are very good, some are
not. You have the opportunity to
challenge that."
Mr. Gibbons said the disaster
response center set up in Belle
Glade would continue to be open


was the single biggest decision in
the private company's decision
to leave.
Since then the Health Care
District of Palm Beach County
has invested millions of dollars
into rehabilitating the aging hos-
pital to, among other things,
attract physicians back to the
facility, a task headed by Mr.
Aranda. The district is also study-
ing the feasibility of building a
new hospital facility to accom-
modate the growing needs of the
area an issue the former CEO
said is critical.
It is expected the new CEO -
who will head the 73-bed acute
care facility with almost 300
employees will play a large
part in that plan. The hospital
board is looking at applicants
who may have experience in the
construction of new hospitals as
part of its review process.

attract more economic develop-

"Regarding the aesthetic, we
have to develop that sense of
pride," said Mr. Holley.
In his spare time, Mr. Holley is a
pastor at a church something
he's done for nearly 20 years now
though he said since being hired
his new job takes up much of his
time now. He draws parallels
.between the two occupations.
"I minister the church the same
way I minister in my job: I m fair
but firm. I m actually
more compromising in the job
than the church," he said with a
laugh.
Even though he only lived in the
area for a year in his younger days.
* as he worked in the Headstart pro-
"gram for the Florida Farmworker
Council, Mr. Holley is committed to
the city, and hopes that the com-
munity will come to embrace him

"To some people, I'm still an
outsider." he said. "Subsequently,
the jury is still out on me."


to answer questions of residents. If
for any reason anyone feels they
were not properly serviced as a
few audience members also
claimed their cases were denied
after failing to provide information
on their legal status, something
that neither FEMA nor the Red
Cross was supposed to ask for -
they can return.
As an agency that responded
almost immediately, the Red Cross
had questions all its own. Focusing
on addressing the housing condi-
tions of victims whose homes suf-
fered almost complete damage or
were simply no longer uninhabit-
able, the Red Cross had the unenvi-
able task of informing victims why
they didn't qualify for help from the
Red Cross even though it was clear
they too suffered.
"'Do you see the stars over your
head, or the moon above your
roof?'" One victim said the repre-
sentative at the other end of the
Red Cross help line asked her.
When the homeowner
answered no, the response was a
quick and clear statement: "Then
you don't qualify."

CLEWISTON Kicking off
their mat season, the Clewiston
Tigers competed in their first dual
of the new wrestling season with
a head-to-head match with cross-
county rival LaBelle, Dec. 7 in
Clewiston.
The Tigers are grooming a
couple of potential champions
down the line, but are a young
squad overall and the resulting
experience level went the way of
the Cowboys who sealed the
team victory 39-33. The Cowboys
took wins in the 130-pound divi-
sion with Colin Sparks getting the
victory, Mickey Clay won his 189-
pound match both wrestlers
getting pins. LaBelle's Patrick
McLymont also scored a major
decision, adding to the Cowboys'
points for the match.
Clewiston had a solid outing in
other weight classes, however,
with Brandon Caulkins picking up
a pin in the 119-pound division, as
did Tiger phenom Kris Smith who
scored a pin in the coveted 145-
pound class. The Tigers also
scored major victories with Arse-
nio Kamirez, Jared Bacallao and
Bryon Holmes getting the wins in
their individual weight classes.
Overall, it was a solid outing
for the Tigers who faced a Cow-
boy team coming off a second
place finish in the Key West Invita-
tional.
The Tigers packed up their
gear three days later and headed
to Pinellas Park High School for a
two-day invitational that featured
19 schools, much of them com-
peting for significantly larger
schools than Clewiston. Some of
those schools included squads
from St. Petersburg and one visit-
ing team from Washington State.
This was the biggest challenge
some of the young Tiger mat war-
riors had yet to see and Clewiston
met the challenge head on to fin-
ish 10th out of the 19 schools,
which included placing a trio of
Tiger grapplers in the finals.
Bacallao, wrestling in the 125-


Edmond, wrestling in the 160-
pound category coasted through
the first day of competition with -
undefeated records to put them-
selves in the championship
rounds on day two.
Bacallao would suffer a defeat
in his first match of the second
day, but rallied to win his next
three matches to take third place
overall with a 4-1 record for the
tournament.
Edmond duplicated that effort,
dropping his first match, but win-
ning three in a row to also finish
third overall.
Smith would also drop his first


back to finish fourth overall with a
3-2 record. One of Smith's losses
came against the eventual winner
from Northeast High School, in
Largo, who was also voted as the
Most Valued Wrestler of the tour-
nament. Smith loss a close 18-16
decision to the eventual champ.
The Tigers will be back in
action this weekend as they head
to St. Petersburg's South Side
High School for another tough,
two-day tournament and also
look forward to gaining a home-
town advantage after the holidays
when Clewiston will host their
Invitational Jan. 8.

LABELLE With the Lady
Tigers from Clewiston High School
launching an early, but successful,
district campaign in the 2005-2006
girls basketball season, Clewiston
was hoping to extend their district
record with a victory over the, thus
far, winless Lady Cowgirls from
LaBelle High School.
Clewiston came into the game
with one district loss and looked
to take over first place with a win
over LaBelle, but the Lady Cow-
girls had other ideas as they
sealed a 54-37 victory over the


stunned Lady Tigers.
The Lady Cowgirls took full
advantage of their opening
momentum and launched a 16-6
run in the opening quarter and
never looked back while taking a
30-18 lead into the break.
Clewiston's Nicole Pope racked
up 21 points for the Lady Tigers in
an impressive outing, but didn't
get much help with the exception
of Desire Lopez, who scored six,
and Precious Bryant who con-
tributed with five points.
Clewiston managed to keep


pace in the third quarter with
each squad posting 15 points,
but LaBelle extended their
advantage in the final stanza to
seal the 54-37 victory.

Tropical anthuriums for holiday color


A common complaint given
for folks not wanting to buy tra-
ditional holiday plants like poin-
settia is that they look good for
the holidays, but they go bad
soon afterwards. Over the past
few years, UF horticultural
researchers and the nursery
industry have been developing a
new colorful plant suitable for
holiday giving and seasonal col-
ors.
Anthurium have the addition-
al good points that they will last
well into the new year, and they
are an affordable way to add a
new tropical Florida look to tra-
ditional holiday greenery.
Today's column will tempt you
with news about this "Flamingo
Flower", and suggest how to
select and care for this up and
coming Holiday gift.
There are between 800 and
1,000 known species of Antheri-
ums, which are native to the
tropical Americas, from Mexico,
Costa Rica, and Cuba to Brazil
and Argentina. Different species
have different growth habits -
some climb up trees, others are
firmly planted in soil, and there
are still more that are airplants.
The common names of Tail-
flower, Cockscomb, Flamingo
Flower, Hawaiian Love Plant,
and Tongue of Fire all attest to
the beauty of most Anthurium
species.
Anthuriums have shiny dark
green, oblong, heart-shaped
leaves. However, it is their color-
ful and long-lasting flowers con-
sisting of brightly colored
"leaves" or spathes, and con-
trasting, or complementary
bumpy flower-stalks, know as
spadices. These showy plastic-
looking flowers come in many
shades, including red, rose,
pink, and white. The protruding
tail-like flower can be white, yel-
low and sometimes pink.
Not only are the bloom cut
and included in floral arrange-
ments, they are now commonly
available as flowering house-
plants that will rival many other
holiday plants for color, texture
and ease of care. Anthurium can
flower year round poinsettia
flowers are only a seasonal visi-
tor.
Lots of breeding research
with this plant has resulted in
many new anthurium cultivars,
bringing consumers a whole
new world of colors, sizes,
shapes, and textures. Other
research has improved the
methods to grow these plants in
Florida and Hawaii tissue culture
labs and greenhouses. UF/IFAS


research and nursery innovation
now make our state the num-
ber-one producer of this potted
plant in the world today.
Among new cultivars are
plants adapted to growing in
small containers. Repotting may
actually discourage the produc-
tion of flowers, as that these
plants will do well in a root
bound confined condition. I
recently purchased a "Volcano
PlantTM, grown in Hawaii, that
is growing on a piece of volcanic
rock the root ball is no bigger
that two inches in diameter. (For
those interested, I have placed a
Web page on-line that shows the
diversity of colors, sizes and tex-
tures of these tropical beauties.)
According td former UF Exten-
sion Specialist Dr. Rick Schoell-
horn, three myths have discour-
aged consumers from choosing
Anthuriums as houseplants:
These are (NOT) low-light
plants. Research has shown that
one reason why these plants
stop blooming is a lack of light.
Bright, indirect light (80 percent
to 90 percent shade) is the right
amount of light in Florida. It is
necessary to keep them away
from direct sunlight, which will
burn the leaves.
Anthuriums (DON'T) need
lots of water. In fact, it is best to
let Anthuriums dry out between
waterings. This will cut down on
root-rot disease and gives the
roots a chance to breathe. Once
dry, don't forget to water these
tropical beauties, as they are not
drought tolerant, and the leaf
tips will scorch if left dry. Misting
with water is also recommended
to dislodge dust and temporarily
increase relative humidity.
Anthuriums (DON'T) need
lots of fertilizer. Actually, a lot of
problems can occur when too
much'fertilizer given to these
plants. Over-fertilization, espe-
cially with nitrogen, leads to leaf
burn and may discourage flow-
ering. Use a soluble fertilizer
with a 1-2-1 ratio, and occasion-
ally flush the root ball with water
to remove fertilizer salt buildup.
Finally, since they are tropi-
cals, keep them in pots so they
can be moved inside when tem-
peratures soar above 90 degrees
F or drop below 70 degrees F.
Avoid placing them near drafts
and excessive heat or cold, espe-
cially from televisions, refrigera-
tors, and similar appliances. Fol-
low these care instructions and
few pest issues will occur.
Some small words of caution:
There is the potential for irrita-
tion of the mouth and digestive

Masilotti improves


western communities


In an effort to improve the
safety of residents in the west-
ern communities, Commis-
sioner Tony Masilotti spear-
headed an ordinance to have
Palm Beach County Fire Res-
cue service the residents of
Belle Glade, Pahokee and
South Bay. The Board of
County Commissioners
approved the ordinance with
a 7-0 vote at their Tuesday,
Dec. 6 meeting.
The inclusion of Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay
into .the Fire Rescue Municipal
Service Taxing Unit (MSTU)
'will allow Fire Rescue to
expand its services into these
communities and will include
improved fire stations, para-
medic services and expanded
fire coverage.
"The residents of Palm
Beach County drive all over
the county, not just in their
neighborhoods, all of our resi-
dents should have the same
level of service, regardless of
-where they are in the county,"
said Commissioner Masilotti.
In 2004, the County Com-
mission developed a Level of'
Service standard for the entire
county to ensure all county
residents received an equal
level of fire and rescue servic-'
es. Communities could

drive all over the

Tony Masilotti,
Commissioner

accomplish this by increasing
or enhancing their current
level of service, partnering
with another community or by
contracting with an agency
that meets the level of service
standard. The cities of Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay
have all agreed to join the
main Fire MSTU and become
part of Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue.
"This makes sense," added
Commissioner Masilotti, "We
have the ability to make their
lives better by providing this
vital service, they need it, we
have it, I'm just glad to be a
part of the solution."

Right plant, right place to plant


By Ed Ayen
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
This is the third in a series of
articles written on the new area
program called Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods. The program is
being implemented through your
local county extension service in
Highlands, Okeechobee and
Glades County and is partially
funded from Clean Water Act Sec-
tion 319 funding from the U.S. EPA
through the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
Plant selection can be the fun
part of landscaping a "Florida
Friendly Yard". If you are from the
north country, like I am, you prob-
ably marvel at the diversity of


plants that grow in this area. You
may want to try everything or are
dismayed at the number and find
it hard to choose. Remember, the
plants you select determine the
level of maintenance required
and also how long your land-
scape will last.
Plants already on your proper-
ty, particularly low maintenance
native plants, should be retained.
Saving existing plants reduces
cost and leaves valuable wildlife
habitat undisturbed.
Select from a list that includes
suitable native plants, as once they
are established, most require little,
if any, supplemental water, fertiliz-
er or pesticides. If you won't be


irrigating your yard, select drought
tolerant plants that are suited to
your soil. Consider flowering and
fruiting plants that bring birds and
butterflies into your yard.
Please do not plant noxious or
invasive species. Florida prohibits
planting of Brazilian Pepper, Aus-
tralian Pine, Melaleuca, Carrot-
wood, Chinese Tallow and many
others.
Strive to create a mosaic of trees,
shrubs, groundcovers, native grass-
es and wildflowers. Large plantings
of the same species are prone to
disease and insect infestation.
Turf areas should be functional
and designed for easy mainte-
nance. Bahiagrass tends to be


more carefree than St. Augustine.
Groundcovers are especially
useful in shady or sloped areas
where turf may not thrive or is dif-
ficult to maintain.
Don't be fooled by the Quick-
fix appeal of fast growing plants.
They require more pruning, result-
ing in more clippings and yard
waste. Slower growing plants may
take longer, but they will last
longer and create less work.
Choose plants hardy in this
region. We do have occasional
frost throughout the area and
non-hardy plants may not survive.
Also, plants tuned to cooler cli-
mates may not survive our hot,
humid summers.


Crist issues civil subpoenas in Adelphia Cable TV sale


Wants to ensure
Florida consumers
are protected
TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that his office has issued subpoe-
nas to three of the nation's
largest cable television compa-
nies, in order to obtain copies of
documents related to the effort
by Comcast and Time Warner to
acquire customers now served
by competitor Adelphia Com-
munications Corp. The potential
purchase of Adelphia by Com-
cast and Time Warner could
affect at least a half-million Flori-
da consumers.
Adelphia, the fifth-largest
cable provider in the United
States, is looking to sell its cable
systems and assets to Comcast
Corporation and Time Warner
Inc. for a total of $12.7 billion.
Comcast, the nation's largest
cable provider, and Time Warn-


er, the third-largest, in turn are
asking the federal government
for permission to exchange cer-
tain cable systems and assets in
order to create regional clusters,
which the companies say would
make them more efficient.and
potentially lead to lower rates.
The civil investigative
demands issued by the Attorney
General's Office ask the three
companies to provide copies of
all documents that have been or
will be submitted to the Federal
Trade Commission, the U.S.
Department of Justice and the
Federal Communications Com-
mission. The subpoenas also
request documents provided to
the companies by the federal
agencies related to the Adelphia
acquisition.
"The best way to keep cable
prices low is to ensure a compet-
itive marketplace," said Crist.
"Comcast and Time Warner pro-
vide a valuable service to mil-
lions of Florida consumers, and
we hope they continue to meet


customers' needs once the Adel-
phia acquisition has been com-
pleted. Our goal is to make sure
the interests of Florida con-
sumers are protected once a
company's competitor is
acquired."
In addition to acquiring Adel.-
phia assets, Comcast and Time
Warner are seeking permission
to swap some of their own
assets in order to concentrate
their resources in more compact
geographic areas. The potential
impact on Florida cable markets
primarily involves the sale of
Adelphia assets to Comcast, with
some additional transfer of Time
Warner assets to Comcast. If the
sale and transfer are approved
by the federal government, Com-
cast will add approximately
510,000 customers in four large
markets: Miami (approximately
85,000), West Palm Beach
(approximately 308,000), Fort
Myers-Naples (approximately.
72,000) and Orlando (approxi-
mately 45,000).


Crist said he plans to seek
assurances that the Adelphia
sale will not eliminate beneficial
"overbuilding" that has occurred
in certain areas of the state,
including parts of the Orlando
area. In those limited areas,
more than one cable company
installed the necessary facilities
and provide cable service to the
same neighborhoods, thus pro-
moting a competitive market-
place. Since competition can
drive down consumer costs, the
attorney general plans to seek
assurances from Comcast that
Adelphia resources in these
"overbuilt" areas will not be sold
to rivals, thereby eliminating
direct competition.
The civil investigative
demands require that the
requested documents be sub-
mitted to the Attorney General's
Antitrust Division by Dec. 26, but
the companies have indicated
that they will begin providing
some documents immediately.

Myths and misunderstandings about disaster assistance


ORLANDO Recovery officials
voiced concern that word-of-
mouth misinformation may dis-
courage eligible Wilma-impacted
individuals from seeking help from
the Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA) and Flori-
da's State Emergency Response
Team (SERT).
,"The last thing you need in a dis-
aster is misinformation," said State
Coordinating Officer Craig Fugate.
"The best way to avoid that prob-
lem is to call the toll-free tele-regis-
tration number and ask what kind
of assistance is available to you."
Residents who suffered dam-
ages and losses as a result of Hurri-
cane Wilma should apply for assis-
tance immediately by calling (800)
621-FEMA (3362). Those with a
speech or hearing impairment can
call C(TY) (800) 462-7585. The lines
are open 24/7 until further notice.
-You may also apply online at
www.fema.gov.
"There are many common mis-
.conceptions that should simply be
ignoredd," said Justin DeMello, Fed-
eral Coordinating Officer. "Resi-
dents should call and get accurate
information."


Some of the myths heard in past
disasters include:
I received help from a previous
disaster so I'm not eligible.
Not true. Every disaster is con-
sidered separately. When you call
to register a specialist will evaluate
your application for the current dis-
aster.
I have insurance, so there is no
other help available.
Not true. FEMA will not dupli-
cate insurance benefits, but you
may be eligible for help with losses
not covered or damage in excess of
your coverage. That's why it's
important to register for assistance
even while you are working with
your insurance company to assess
your insurance coverage.
I have to wait for my insurance
adjuster before I apply for disaster
assistance.
Not true. Don't wait for an
adjuster before applying for aid or
making necessary repairs to make
your house livable. However, you
should find out what your policy
covers; and be sure to keep papers
and receipts for any work.
I already repaired my home. I
don't need to apply.
Not true. You might qualify for


reimbursement of expenses not
covered by insurance.
I received help from the Red
Cross, so now I can't get help from
FEMA or the state.
Not true. FEMA and SERT coor-
dinate a number of programs to
help disaster victims. These pro-
grams are different from the emer-
gency food, clothing and shelter ini-
tially provided by the Red Cross and
other voluntary agencies.
I received help from the Red
Cross, so I'm already registered
with FEMA.
Not true. Registration with the
Red Cross is not the same as regis-
tration with FEMA.
I make too much money to
qualify for disaster aid.
Not true. The kinds of help pro-
vided depend on each applicant's
circumstances. Federal and state
disaster assistance programs may
be available to those who suffered
damage, regardless of income.
I have to be turned down by my
bank before I can apply for.a disas-
ter loan.
Not true. The U.S. Small Busi-
ness Administration (SBA), which
handles low-interest disaster loans,
has its own criteria for determining


each loan applicant's eligibility. The
SBA will decide whether or not you
are able to repay a loan. If you are
not qualified for a loan, you may be
eligible for a FEMA grant, but it is
necessary to go through the SBA
application process first.
I must own a business to apply
for a loan from the SBA.
Not true. Based on the type and
extent of "uninsured" or "underin-
sured" disaster-related losses and
damages, individuals may be eligi-
ble for low-interest loans for home
or personal property losses.
I rent an apartment. I can't get
help.
Not true. There are several types
of assistance available to renters.
One type of grant may help a renter
with temporary housing needs if
they have to move because of dis-
aster damage or loss. Another type
of grant is available to an eligible
individual or family with serious,
disaster-related needs and neces-
sary expenses that are not covered
by insurance or other disaster assis-
tance programs. A renter may also
qualify for an SBA low-interest dis-
aster loan.

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Ultimate Doilies
Doilies first became popular as practical and fash-
ionable accents in Victorian homes, where they pro-
vided an elegant way to protect the upholstery on
fine furniture. Now you can add that same touch of
elegance to your own home with the help of a full-
color, 60-page guidebook, "The Ultimate Doily
Book." The book includes all the information you
need to get started, including complete step-by-step
instructions for 17 original designs, tips on crochet
hooks and cotton, a guide to abbreviations and sym-
bols and more.

Ultimate Doily guide (No. AN 1185)... $8.95
Also available:
Crochet Table Runners & Placemats guide
