er who w\as shot in the arm while
making her round of deliveries at
Glades Glen Apartments in Belle
Glade. A bullet having pierced
her wrist, the woman is now~ ini
stable condition as authorities
search for the responsible party.
According to investigators,
the woman, a long-time postal
worker for the post office in Belle
Glade, was making her deliveries
at the apartment development
March 11, at approximately 1:30
p.m. when she heard a shot ring
out. The woman, whose name is
being withheld, felt a burning
sensation in her hand and looked
down to see her wrist bloodied.
An employee of the apart-
ment complex saw the incident
play out, though he didn't actual-
ly see the gunman, and came to
the aid of the wounded postal
worker. Ed Hatcher jumped into


turned a corner in one of the sec-
tions of the winding develop-
ment.
"My feeling is that it wasn't a
malicious act," said Detective Sgt.
Gonzalez. "I don't believe it was
something intentional."
According to detectives, the
woman, who is eight years from,
retirement, had been carting the
mail of the residents at Glades
Glen to the front office because
she did not want anyone's mail
stolen from the broken boxes.
When she was hit by the bullet,

Marta Baez
Marta Baez was born in
Artemisa, Cuba Feb. 24, 1931
and married Israel Baez, Sr.
March 27, 1951. In October of
1963, the bold couple made a
very risky decision to escape out
of communist Cuba with her
two sons, Israel Jr. and Juan, as
well as her brother, Joaquin
Alvarez and other family mem-
bers and friends. They arrived
safely in Texas where they
resided for four months before
moving to Belle Glade in 1964.
During the 42 years she lived
in Belle Glade, she was not just a
great mother and a great wife,
but she was also an ambassador
for Belle Glade, telling friends
and family members how much
she loved this town.
Marta acquired two daugh-
ters when Israel and Cindy (Hen-
ley) were married in 1975 and
when Juan and Ana (Gomez)
were married in 1979. In 1981,
she became a grandmother with
the birth of Israel III (Boo) and
Carla Ceellia. Her third grand-
child, Jay, was born in 1984 and
in 1985, she enjoyed the arrival
of her fourth grandchild, Pre-
ston.
Through the years, Marta
enjoyed watching her grandchil-
dren become young adults. On
Feb. 25, 2006, after fighting res-
piratory problems for several
years, Marta embarked on
another adventure in life, leaving
her family, friends, and Belle
Glade and moved to be with the
Lord where she is resting and
not suffering. She will be
missed.

December of 1992, but still lives
on in the hearts of the many that
she influenced.
Mrs. Yvonne Swindle, current
president of the Hendry County
Fair Association, came up with
the idea of starting an annual
men's cake auction at the Coun-
ty Fair to raise money for a 4-H
Scholarship in honor of Pro. The
idea involved many male
"celebrities" from our local
communities and required them
to bake a cake to be auctioned at


the Fair. The idea really took off
and with the help of many gen-
erous cake makers and bidders,
as well as volunteers and fair
directors, the auction now raises
the money to provide two col-
lege scholarships each year to
worthy 4-H members.
The male celebrity cake auc-
tion will take place Thursday,
March 23, at the Hendry County
Fairgrounds beginning at 7 p.m.
Please come out and give your
support.

Pet of the Week winner
Say hello to this week's Pet of the Week winner, an 11-
week-old boxer/black lab mix by the name of Daisy. Little
(for now) Daisy emerged from a litter of 10 siblings and
was the only one not chosen for a home until Robert and
Sharon Wiley of Clewiston laid their eyes on this little
cutie and gladly made Daisy a part of their family. Sharon
says Daisy loves to cuddle and falls into a safe, deep
sleep when she is with mom and dad. Sharon lovingly
calls Daisy a "very loving addition to our family." Well
Daisy, next time you crawl up on mommy or daddy's lap,
you are going to be smelling grand and feeling spry after
winning a day at Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital's pet spa
where young Daisy will receive a day of pampering,
bathing, and primping courtesy of Doctor Noelle Saved-
off of Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital in Belle Glade. Doc
Savvy can be reached at (561) 996-5500.

Writing the wilds
The Clewiston Library is sponsoring an "Author Talk" on
Monday, March 20. The featured author is Mark Renz, a
Fort Myers native who has written several books related
to Florida's past. He is the author of "Fossiling In Flori-
da", "Megalodon: Hunting the Hunter", "Doug's Ark:
Thinking Outside the Pile", and "Giants in the Storm". He
and his wife Marissa operate Expeditions.com, a SW
Florida fossil guide service. "Florida Through Native
Eyes" is his latest work. It is a collection of landscape
and wildlife photographs from panthers to birds to
swamps and oak hammocks. Mark will have copies of his
book to sell and autograph at the library. Admission is
free and refreshments will be served.


Milk helps kids grow

strong and stay healthy


Want another reason to encour-
age your children to drink their
milk? Drinking milk can help com-
bat childhood obesity.
The new USDA dietary guide-
lines recommend three services
of low-fat or fat-free dairy foods
each day. A glass of low-fat milk at
each meal can help your child be
healthier.
Milk contains calcium neces-
sary for building strong bones and
teeth. It also contains protein.
Studies have show that kids
who drink three, eight ounce glass-
es of milk a day may be less at risk
for health problems such as obesity
and Type 2 diabetes. The theory is
that the protein and fat in the milk
help stabilize the blood sugar.
What kind of milk should.you
serve? Ask your child's pediatrician.
Which type of milk is right for your
child depends on his or her nutri-
tional needs. When my son was
very young, the doctor advised me
to give him whole milk because he
needed the calories. Now he's 7-
years-old, the doctor suggested he
drink low-fat milk. At my house,
"chocolate" milk means Ovaltine. I
like the idea of adding vitamins
instead of just adding chocolate fla-
voring.
Juice is also a "healthy" choice,
but juice contains a lot of natural
sugar. There's a reason "juice"
glasses are small. One four ounce
glass of juice a day should be the

limit.
Children who drink foo much
juice have a greater risk of becom-
ing overweight. Children who
drink more than one glass of juice a
day may be consuming more calo-
ries than their parents realize. The
kids may also fill up on juice and
noteat other healthy foods. .
Nutritionists advise that sugared
drinks, such as colas, should be
limited. These beverages are high
in calories and contain no vitamins,
minerals or protein. They are
"empty" calories.
Instead of sodas, encourage
children to drink water between
meals.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered,
healthy.

Letters to the Editor


Thank you
Belle Glade Police
To the Editor:
I want to thank the Belle
Glade Police Department for
doing a wonderful job when we
had a difficult situation Thursday
evening. I was so impressed
with the professionalism, help-
fulness and kindness that I expe-
rienced as they worked to
resolve the situation. I would
especially thank Detective
Holoborow, Detective Sergeant
Gonzalez, Officer Freer and
Sergeant Shatara. Belle Glade is
very lucky to have a police
department that is skilled and
responsive to the public.
Sincerely,
Anne Haskell

Standing up for rights
Florida citizens have the con-
stitutional right to keep and bear
arms for self-protection and
Florida law specifically guaran-
tees the right to transport and
carry firearms in private vehicles
for lawful purposes. Those
rights are well established in law
and in public policy.
Yet some corporate giants are
violating those individual rights,
claiming a constitutional right to
control business property, when
no such blanket right exists.
Corporate lobbyists have even
claimed businesses have the
right to ban any personal prop-
erty inside private vehicles from
"guns" to "Bibles" to
"bananas." That is nonsense.
Government, at all levels,
heavily regulates business prop-
erty use from zoning to building
codes to public accommoda-
tions and laws against bigotry
and discrimination. This is no
different.
SB-206 and HB-129 were filed
to protect the individual, consti-
tutionally guaranteed rights of
citizens. The legislation does
not interfere with the employer-
employee relationship except to
stop illegal searches of private
vehicles and protect employees,


who want to exercise a constitu-
tional right, from abusive anti-
gun corporations bent upon dis-
criminating against them.
The right to transport and
carry firearms in a vehicle
means you can store that
firearm locked in your vehicle in
a parking lot when you go gro-
cery shopping, to the doctor's
office, to a movie, to visit a sick
friend in the hospital, to the dry
cleaners, to the shoe store or
anywhere else people common-
ly travel.
Constitutional rights do not
end, and, indeed must not,
when you drive into a commer-
cial parking lot. And business
practices and policies do not
supersede the constitutional or
statutory rights of individual cus-
tomers and employees.
Courts have ruled that "an at-
will employee may not be termi-
nated for exercising constitu-
tional rights." But big
businesses in Florida are trying
to place themselves above the
law and above the Constitution.
And, tragically, some are report-
ed to have executed searches of
private vehicles and fired
employees for exercising a con-
stitutional right.
This bill stops that illegal,
abusive, and clearly unconstitu-
tional conduct.
The cold hard truth is, gun
free parking lots are safe havens
for criminals. Businesses that
ban guns in private vehicles in
parking lots are placing the lives
of their customers and employ-
ees in danger. That conduct is
reprehensible and must be pro-
hibited.
Passage of SB-206 and HB-
129 would put an end to corpo-
rate giants trampling the Free-
dom of law-abiding citizens who
take responsibility for their own
safety and by its practices,
extorting employees by forcing
them to chose between their
jobs or their lives.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello, my
name is Jeanette Relloux. I have
a very recent change in employ-
ment, which takes me away on a
very regular basis. I am a person-
al assistant to a CEO, who travels
nearly every weekend. In accept-
ing this new position, I negotiat-
ed an understanding that my two
Yorkies Bongo and Congo get to
go where I go. They come to
work with me everyday, and now
that is going to mean planes, and
hotels pretty much every week-
end. What do I need to prepare
for them with travel? I'll guess I
will have to pack for them too?
Should I sedate them? Do they
need special travel documents?
All this travel will be with private
and corporate jets. I will be able
to have them in carriers with me
on the plane at all times. Thank
you! I know you bring your dogs
to work with you, and maybe a
bit of traveling too? I thought you
would have some good advice
for me. Jeanette.
A: Hello Jeanette, sounds like
you have a wonderful exciting
new position congrats! Okay,
let's take your questions step by
step.
Yes, you will have to pack
them a suitcase!


Bring toys, blankets, food
dishes, food, and treats, which
will keep them right at home. It is
important to be consistent with
the type of food they eat. This will
avoid diarrhea, which is associat-
ed with a change of diet. Consis-
tency will help them to get used
to the travel lifestyle too. Look
how great this is, they have you
24/7, they have each other, and
they will have all the stuff they
are used to having at home. I
think they will acclimate right
away. Oh and make sure you
have any medications, heart-
worm prevention, flea medica-
tions, bathing and grooming
products too.
Choose an airline-approved
kennel for them to travel in.
Make sure it is cozy for them too.
Write clearly with a permanent
marker: Your name, their names,
address, and phone numbers.
This way you will be properly
identifying their kennels.
Now, the plane part. Sedatives
may be a good thing at first. This
will help them be okay with the
sights and sounds of being on a
plane. Talk to your veterinarian
about Acepromazine. This will
be a good choice of sedative to
give Bongo and Congo about


Doc Savvy
one hour before you board the
plane. This way when the pill
wears off, they will be okay with
being on a plane. I would try this
for the first 2-3 times getting
them on a plane, then see how
they do without it. In no time you
will see they will be real pros!
Travel documents or, health
certificates is mandatory for air
travel with a pet. All commercial
and private airlines require this,
especially for international travel.
It is a document, which is filled
out and signed by a federally
accredited veterinarian. Not all
veterinarians are accredited. It is
a test or series of tests, which vets


have to pass in order to write
health certificates. My health cer-
tificates are standard forms from
the USDA, and are good for 30
days domestic travel. Sounds like
you will have to get a new one
about every 3-4 weeks.
As long as Bongo and Congo
are current on their vaccinations,
are tested negative for internal
and external parasites, are on
heartworm and flea prevention,
have a current rabies tag, and are
free of any obvious disease, they
can get health certificates. Oh yes
and very important too Jeanette,
get them microchips for identifi-
cation. This will help identify
them in case they are lost. Make
sure too they have their leashes
and collars with their tags on!
Keep in mind that you may
travel to a cooler destination at
times, so they may need a new
wardrobe and accessories!
That's the fun part!
Okay Jeanette! I hope that
helps. Good luck, and bon voy-
age to you, Bongo and Congo!
Take care, Doc Savvy.

You can live as a victim or the victor


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I remember my father asking
me when I was growing up and
wanted something, "How are
you going to pay for it?" He
asked it about a radio transmit-
ter when I had my first amateur
radio license at age 13, about
wanting a car, about wanting to
go to school.
He taught me to plan ahead,
to think about what was going to
be the implication of my actions
today and how it would affect
tomorrow. Of course there were
always unexpected expenses or
setbacks, but they might be con-
sidered along the way. When I
ran out of money and scholar-
ships, I went to work and saved
money until I had enough to
return to school. When I had an
unexpected car accident, I pur-
chased another car and added
savings to offset the difference in
price between my old one and


new one.
I like to plan ahead, consider
any contingencies that come up
and take them into account as
best as I can.
Jesus was talk-
ing to a crowd
and says,
"Suppose one ? .rw 'j
of you wants .
to build a
tower. Will he
not first sit
down and esti-
mate the cost Samuel S.
to see if he has Thomas
enough
money to complete it? (Luke
14:28)."
He also speaks of a king who
is about to go to war against
another king (v.31ff) and asks if
he won't first sit down and con-
sider whether he is able to win
- otherwise send a delegation
while the other is a long way off
and ask for terms of peace.
There is planning involved


and there are contingencies to
be considered. Jesus speaks of
these things in relation to being
a disciple you have to count
the cost and know that there will
be a cost, then be willing to pay
the cost. I have heard that the
average American is $10,000 in
debt and when I served on a
board of directors for a home-
less shelter, I learned that the
average American is two and
one half paychecks away from
being homeless.
I sat down with a young man
who was doing his community
service at my church and reflect-
ed when he told me about a deal
he was offered on another car.
He told me about the monthly
payments, the trade-in on his old
car, the down payment and
what the new car would have. I
asked him a question, "Will your
current car last you another two
years?" He said, "Yes" and we
sat down together, figuring out
the sum of the monthly pay-
ments, adding in the down pay-


ment, looking at the deprecia-
tion on his old car over the next
two years and when we got
done, he was shocked.
The new car was going to
cost him about $10,000.
Because things are not paid for
on the spot, many people simply
don't think of what something
really is going to mean for the
years to come. I believe in plan-
ning; in my giving, in my pur-
chases, in my ordering my
actions to include what it will
mean in the weeks, months or
years ahead.
There is a cost to everything
- not planning brings a higher
cost than many ever consider or
even refuse to look at. The disci-
ple counts the cost and then
goes ahead knowing he can
obtain the spiritual victory that it
brings. The good steward counts
the cost too not only in his
matters of faith but in his daily
life as well.


The Devil made me do it yeah right


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I read about a man who was
suing a hospital. A doctor had
performed staple surgery on his
stomach to
help him lose
weight. A cou-
ple of days
after his oper-
ation, he raid-
ed the hospital
refrigerator
and stuffed
himself with
everything he John
could find. Hicks
This tore open
the staples and forced another
surgery. He was suing the hospi-
tal for having a refrigerator near
his room. He claimed the temp-
tation was too great and that his


complications were not his, but
the hospital's fault!
Since the Garden of Eden,
humans have made it a regular
practice to pass the buck. Do
you remember Adam and Eve?
God asks what's going on, Adam
responds by admitting that he
ate the forbidden fruit, but it
wasn't his fault. "The woman
You gave me, she made me eat
that fruit." Is Eve responsible?
Not according to her! Eve's
response is, "The serpent
deceived me, and I ate."
"It's his fault. It's her fault. It's
their fault." "It's not my fault.
The devil made me do it." Since
the beginning of time our first
instincts have been to blame
others for our own failures.
Instead of accepting responsibil-
ity, we claim we are victims.
There is truth in the statement


South Bay and FEMA meet


to discuss pending needs


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

SOUTH BAY The three cities
in the Glades area received consid-
erable punishment from the brunt
of Hurricane Wilma when it hit last
year. The hurricane was a tem-
pered storm at first, coming back
once its eye had passed over the
area with terrific winds that bared
down on the three cities.
One of the cities most affected
was South Bay. The city's water
plant suffered considerable dam-
ages in the hurricane. Tons of
debris from around the lake was
blown across the dike and the city
s water intake system, which
draws its water from the lake, was
clogged for several days as workers
rushed to free it before residents
were without water.
They were a few rough days,
employees admitted something
City Manager Tony Smith does not
want to see repeated.
The manager met earlier this
month with officials from FEMA
and Congressman Alcee Hastings
office to ask that the agencies con-
sider funding unmet needs result-
ing from the storm. Among several
requests, the city is asking FEMA to
provide funding to repair the water
plant and the various damages
caused by Hurricane Wilma.
Though the South FloridaWater
Management District stepped in to
help immediately after the storm,
and help in bringing the plant back
to functioning order, but major
upgrades still remain.
Mr. Smith said he is hopeful that


FEMA will step forward to provide
funding to complete the repairs at
the water plant. Although nothing
is yet set in stone, FEMA officials
said they will review the requests to
determine whether or not they can
help.
Even though a multi-million
dollar regional water plant is com-
ing on line less than two years from
now to service the three cities in
the Glades with clean drinking
water, it remains a critical issue to
rehabilitate the existing plant until
that time comes, city officials main-
tain.
According to Mr. Smith, an
emergency can crop up without
warning at the plant, placing its citi-
zens in a very precarious situation.
Getting the plant up and running is
of utmost importance, he said.
The involvement of top-level
officials with FEMA, including
FEMA official Scott Morris, who
oversees the agency s
work in the area, should help to
facilitate the appropriation of addi-
tional dollars to the area, Mr. Smith
said. Having them take a first-hand
view of the damages FEMA had
an inspector on site the next day -
will provide more leverage in justi-
fying the funding.
Mr. Smith said he is grateful to
Alcee Hastings and his staff for
planning the meeting and staying
on top of the condition of the cities
months after the storm. It demon-
strates a willingness to help, some-
thing that the city truly appreciates,
he said.


that each of us is either a part of
the problem or a part of the solu-
tion to everything we confront.
We can choose to blame all of
our problems on someone else
and become a part of these
problems, or we can take
responsibility for our lives and
seek to fulfill the purpose for
which God created us and
become part of the solution.
Having problems with a rela-
tionship? It will go much better if
we accept responsibility for our
part of the relationship, admit
our mistakes and do what we
can to make it better. If things
are not going well at work, why
not try changing the things we
can and focus on doing the best
job we can? Chances are that
even if things at work don't get
better, our outlook will. If we are
not satisfied with what is hap-
pening in our church, rather
than just complaining, we can
do our part to make things better
by taking an active part in the
ministry and making sure we say
only things which will go to


strengthen our life together as a
congregation.
When we become part of the
solution, God becomes much
more visible in our life and in our
hearts.
We are now in the season of
Lent, that period of the church
year that calls us to a time of self-
examination as we approach
Easter. God invites each of us to
daily take stock of our lives and
right our wrongs not only to
Him, but also to those we have
hurt or have disagreements with.
The challenge is to seek to find
ways we can become a part of
,the solution to as many of the
human problems we encounter
directly or indirectly as we can.
The devil may have made us do
it, but thank God we have a way
out of it. When we look in a mirror,
we see the person who holds the
solutions to the most of the prob-
lems we face in life not as one
lone superman or superwoman,
but as God's child with His Spirit in
us; who can love, forgive, care,
show mercy, and share joy!

One injured in GC hunting accident


GLADES COUNTY A Monroe
County man mistakenly fired bird
shot at two of his friends Thursday
while the three hunted for turkeys
in Glades County.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m. as the
three men hunted on the Lykes
Brothers Ranch, Drew Kenneth
Rutherford, 38, of Big Pine Key
heard a noise he believed to be a
turkey and fired a Remington 12-
2 go' p"mp shotgun its direction.
The birdshot hit John William


Holroyd, 39, of Big Pine Key in the
right cheek, forehead, right hand
and in the corner of his left eye. The
injuries were not believed to be life
threatening. The shot also hit Ter-
rence Gary Van Arkel, 65, a winter
resident of Big Pine Key, who was
wearing several layers of thick
clothing and was not seriously
injured.
The men were about 200 feet
away from Rutherford when he
fired the shot.


In the 2004-05 hunting season,
there were eight hunting accidents
statewide, including two fatalities.
FWC hunter safety experts
remind hunters of three tips to
keep them safe during turkey sea-
son:
Properly identify your target.
Don't shoot at a noise.
*Don't wear red, white and
blue, the colors seen on a turkey.
Don't shoot at a hen call as it
may be another hunter.

Marie Clements Box remembers early Okeechobee Escaped reptilian pets


By Twila Valentine
Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers of
Florida was privileged to have on
staff a superb writer and historian,
Twila Valentine. Mrs. Valentine
wrote much about the history of
the people and places around Lake
Okeechobee and about the lake
itself. Together with Okeechobee's
Betty Williamson, President of the
Okeechobee Historical Society, she
co-authored a book, now in its sec-
ond printing, "Strolling down
Country Roads in Okeechobee."
The following story came from
an interview Mrs. Valentine had
with Mrs. Marie Clements Box
dated July 1988.
Marie Clements Box was the
daughter of Adeline Raulerson and
Clifford James Clements. Her
Grandparents were Peter and
Louisiana Raulerson. They were
the first to settle in what would
become Tantie and then Okee-
chobee in 1896. Mrs. Box said he
moved from Basinger for more
grazing land for his cattle.
"My grandmother was very
lonely. There was not another per-
son around here at all. She used to
go out and look down the road
every day to see if she could see a
little bit of dust. If she did, she knew
someone was coming. They put
up everybody that came here.
There was no town at all. She was
just so glad to have company, it did-
n't matter who it was.
"My youngest uncle was the
first white man born here, Connie
Raulerson. When he was a little


to be curbed by law


Recollections

A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


toddler, my grandmother put a bell
on him because panthers were so
plentiful they would run right
through their yard and he had a
habit of running out of the yard
where she couldn't see him.(The
Raulerson home was on the west
side of what is now Parrott
Avenue.)
"I won't mention any names,
but I remember my grandmother
and Aunt Faith telling me about
this. One night, way in the middle
of the night, they heard their cattle
lowing and they knew something
was wrong. My grandfather got
Uncle Lewis and several of the
men, (they had a good idea of
what was happening) and went
out to where the cattle were. The
cattle were all scattered. There
were thieves after them. My grand-
mother was so frightened that my
grandfather would shoot some-
one. But, they got away. This sort of
thing happened all the time.
"This man, who was doing the
rustling, wanted everything around
here. He was quite jealous of my
grandfather and the cattle he had.
He wanted them, too. He hired a
man to kill my grandfather.


Special to INI/www.lamartin.com
These horsemen are posed with the Raulerson homestead on
what is now S. Parrott Avenue. Mrs. Box's uncle, Connie Rauler-
son (on left) was the first white man born in Okeechobee.


"One night, at my grandparents' house, they
heard their hogs squealing and my grandfather
took a lantern out to see what was happening.
There was a big black bear on top of a hog, eat-
ing it alive! Black bears were very plentiful and
so were panthers at that time."
Twila Valentine


"They were camped out in the
woods and this man was in the
camp. Later on, the man told my
grandfather what had happened.
My grandfather told him, 'We
knew what you were there for and
every eye was on you.'
"The man told my grandfather,
'You have treated me so well, I just
could not do it.'


She recalls another story about
the dangers of those early days:
"One night, at my grandparents'
house, they heard their hogs
squealing and my grandfather took
a lantern out to see what was hap-
pening. There was a big black bear
on top of a hog, eating it alive!
Black bears were very plentiful and
so were panthers at that time."


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS A
proposed bill to regulate reptiles
is a giant step toward protecting
Florida's citizens and natural
landscapes from the dangers of
invasive, non-native animals.
Rep. Ralph Poppell (R-Vero
Beach) proposes to expand a
current law regulating poison-
ous snakes to regulating other
potentially invasive reptiles. The
change will help Florida battle
the invasion of species, such as
pythons, monitor lizards and
iguanas, which is overtaking
many neighborhoods and natu-
ral areas as a result of accidental
and intentional releases.
Rep. Poppell's bill would
allow the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion to establish a list of reptiles
that would require a permit
before they could be bought, dis-
played, housed or transported,
including in the pet trade.
"We are supportive of this
effort," said Doria Gordon, the
Nature Conservancy's associate
director of conservation science.
"The Conservancy is concerned
about the impacts these non-
native species are having on
Florida's plants, animals and
habitats. We support approach-
es that prevent non-native, inva-
sive animals from being released
into the wild, thus avoiding
unwanted impacts and costly
and cumbersome control pro-
grams."


Ms. Gordon said the regula-
tions should also help land man-
agers meet their conservation
goals and save taxpayers money.
"This is a great step in the larger
challenge of providing agencies
with improved invasive species
management tools. I hope future
legislation addresses similar
issues we have with other non-
native, invasive species," she
said.
When released, non-native
species often take over a habitat.
From a few released pets in Boca
Grande in the 1970s, Mexican
spiny-tail iguanas have increased
in the last five years from 2,000
to 10,000 on Gasparilla Island,
more than double the island's in-
season human population. Lee
County is considering an iguana
removal tax, allowing control
efforts to begin as early as this
summer.
The Nature Conservancy is a
leading international, nonprofit
organization that preserves
plants, animals and natural com-
munities representing the diver-
sity of life on Earth by protecting
the lands and waters they need
to survive. By working through
funding from the voter approved
Florida Forever program and the
generosity of our donors the
Conservancy has helped protect
more than 1:1 million acres in
Florida since 1961. For more

School Happenings


Glade View
Elementary


Submitted to INI
Dr. Mary Dupont, a retired
administrator visits Glade
View Elementary to help stu-
dents prepare for the FCAT.







Mrs. Helen Rutledge, takes
time out of SDPBC retirement
to help students at Glade
View Elementary prepare for
the FCAT test.

Glades Day School
The New Year has been pro-
gressing rather quickly and suc-
cessfully for everyone at GDS. In
February, the sophomore class
sold a record number of carna-
tions for their annual Valentine's
Day fundraiser. Over 2,000 beauti-
ful flowers were delivered
throughout the school Feb. 14 fill-
ing the hallways with smiling
faces. The profits will be used
next year when it's their turn to
decorate for the 2007 Prom.
The National Honor Society
sponsored the second blood drive
of the year Feb. 22. The group
helped to replenish the communi-
ty with a new supply of blood
while earning over $800 for
school improvements.
The highlight of the month
was the Mardi Gras Extravaganza
Dinner/Dance/Auction, which
was held at the Wycliff Country
Club Feb. 24. Through many gen-
erous donations by businesses all
over Palm Beach and Hendry
County and a year of dedicated
hard work by the committee
members, over, $80,000 was
earned for the benefit of the stu-
dents who attend the school.
The filet and shrimp dinner
was delicious, and the entertain-
ment including an alumni slide


show, special presentations, and
dancing until midnight was
enjoyed by all. Most of the monies
will cover budgeted expenses,
while the remaining $10,000 will
help with the land acquisition and
other necessary improvements
being made around the school
after two years of very active hur-
ricane seasons. This event contin-
ues to be a huge success and
plans for next year are already
underway. Be sure to plug it in to
your calendar so you don't miss
the fun.
The FFA Chapter at GDS held
its first Greenhand Degree Cere-
mony March 15 at 7 p.m. in Tripp
Hall. FFA Chapter Advisor Mike
Miller and FFA President Kalyn
Rayburn presided over the cere-
mony. Having already met their
requirements for the Discovery
Program, all the students in the
FFA class have achieved this
honor. Their next aspirations will
be to acquire the degrees of FFA
Chapter Farmer, State Chapter
Farmer, and ultimately the Ameri-
can FFA Farmer. Mr. Miller feels
confident that several of his stu-
dents have the determination and
capability to reach these goals.
'The United States Sugar Corpora-
tion has donated a hurricane
damaged greenhouse, which will
soon be moved and reassembled
on the new land near the brand
new baseball field.
In elementary news, the Stu-
dents of the Month for February
were fifth graders Abbie Jo
Schlechter, Cole Potts, Samantha
Jansen, and Elliot White. The out-
standing students for March are
sixth graders Connor Boss, Jessie
Kirchman and Sara Lezcano.
The fourth, fifth, and sixth
graders just completed their year
long Social Studies Projects and
decorated the gym with the fruits
of their labor throughout last
week. Each student presented
their oral report for their teachers
and classmates and explained
about their 3-D project. The fourth
graders subject matter was from
the state of Florida, while the fifth
graders were assigned a state in
the United States, and the sixth
graders chose an influential per-
son in history or any significant
place in the world. Their work
was quite impressive and the
teachers were quite pleased with
their student's efforts.

Urban stormwater pollution fund


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) recently awarded a
total of $9.3 million to ten local gov-
ernments and two universities to
reduce urban stormwater pollution
to Florida's priority impaired water-
ways. These funds are part of the
Water Quality Restoration Grant
Program established by the Florida
Legislature in 2005 through pas-
sage of Senate Bill 444.
"DEP is working with commu-
nities throughout Florida to retrofit
outdated drainage systems and
improve stormwater treatment,"
said DEP Secretary Colleen M.
Castille. "The funding made avail-
able by the Water Quality Restora-
tion Grant Program allows the


Department to expand partner-
ships with local governments,
water management districts and
other public entities to restore
impaired (polluted) waters."
Untreated urban runoff from older
drainage systems is a primary
cause of pollution to many of Flori-
da's rivers, lakes and estuaries and
the reason many of these surface
waters have been determined to be
impaired under the DEP's Total
Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) pro-
gram. The TMDL program estab-
lishes the cause of impairment and
works with local governments to
develop and implement projects
and programs to restore surface
waters to healthy conditions.


The Water Quality Restoration
Grant Program promotes cost-
effective construction projects to
clean up waterways. Grants are
awarded to local governments for
projects that are ready to proceed,
who provide matching funds and
who have established a dedicated
recurring funding source for
stormwater management. Projects
must be designed to reduce specif-
ic pollutant loads, such as nitrogen
and phosphorus, which cause the
water body's impairment. Once
complete, projects are typically
monitored after storm events to
document their effectiveness in
removing pollutants. "We are
pleased that DEP has another pro-


gram available to local govern-
ments to clean up Florida's surface
waters and preserve them for the
future," said Mimi Drew, Director of
DEP's Division of Water Resource
Management.
Under the leadership of Gover-
nor Bush and the Florida Legisla-
ture, Florida has invested almost $2
billion to improve wastewater
treatment, clean up stormwater
pollution and upgrade drinking
water facilities, funding more than
950 projects statewide since 1999.

Grant Program, visit http://www.

Annual report highlights Everglades projects


WEST PALM BEACH The
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) and South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD) has released a compre-
hensive update of environmental
projects in South Florida. The 2006
South Florida Environmental Report
provides a detailed summary of Ever-
glades restoration efforts and updates
on the progress of other environmen-
tal programs in the Kissimmee Basin,
Lake Okeechobee, estuaries and
other coastal areas.
"No other government has
taken on a mission as large and as
important as Everglades restora-
tion," said DEP Secretary Colleen
M. Castille. "The 2006 South Florida
Environmental Report delivers a
comprehensive snapshot of Flori-
da's unprecedented success over
the past year."
The annual report documents
the accomplishments of state and
federal scientists, engineers, plan-


ners and program managers who
are restoring the Everglades by
reducing pollution and better man-
aging the flow of water, while
meeting the State's flood control
and water supply responsibilities.
Consolidating information com-
piled from more than 50 separate
reports, the 2006 South Florida
Environmental Report covers
"water year 2005" (May 1, 2004
thru April 30,2005). The report pro-
vides extensive research sum-
maries, data analyses, financial
updates and a searchable database
of environmental projects.
Highlights of the 2006 South Flori-
da Environmental Report include:
Stormwater Treatment Areas
(STAs) which have treated almost
1.5 million acre-feet of water and
prevented 189 metric tons of phos-
phorus from reaching the Ever-
glades in water year 2005 alone.
Best Management Practices
(BMPs) recorded its tenth consecu-


tive year of outstanding results in
reducing phosphorus inputs. The
BMP program achieved a 59-per-
cent phosphorus load reduction in
the Everglades Agricultural Area
this year, more than doubling the
25 percent required by law.
To date, STAs and BMPs com-
bined have prevented more than
2,178 metric tons of phosphorus
from entering America's Everglades.
In October 2004, Governor
Jeb Bush unveiled Acceler8 a plan
to accelerate the restoration of
eight key environmental projects to
be completed 10 years ahead of
schedule.
The millionth acre of melaleu-
ca, an invasive exotic plant species,
was cleared from the Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration Project
(CERP) area in water year 2005.
To date, more than 210,000
acres of land have been acquired
for use in CERP.
"The 2006 South Florida Envi-


ronmental Report is one of our
agency's most impressive annual
documents," said Carol Wehle,
Executive Director of the SFWMD.
"It showcases the first-rate science,
engineering and water resource
management that are making
South Florida's environmental
restoration a reality."
Under the leadership of Gover-
nor Jeb Bush, Florida forged a 50-
50 State-federal partnership to
implement the $8.4 billion Com-
prehensive Everglades Restoration
Plan and has invested $1.3 billion
and committed an additional $3 bil-
lion through the end of the decade
to clean up and restore the famed
River of Grass.
The 2006 South Florida Environ-
mental Report, including a 52-page
Executive summary, is available

Sorting out the Medicare drug program mess


By Melissa Ross

Critics say the program is too
confusing and offers too many
choices. But insurers and politi-
cians are urging the public, particu-
larly senior citizens, to have faith in
Medicare's new prescription drug
benefit program, which went into
effect Jan. 1 of this year.
All Medicare beneficiaries, not
just seniors, are eligible for what's
called "Medicare Part D". Simply
put, the new program is insurance
for prescription drugs, and benefi-
ciaries have 40 or more plans to
choose from in Florida alone. Flori-
da Medicare beneficiary Patricia
Morris reflects the concerns of
many seniors who have been
bombarding insurance companies
with calls and e-mails, as they try to
sort out their options.
"Maybe I just didn't understand,
it but to me it was confusing. I need
to figure out what the best plan is
for me," she said.
So what is the best plan? If you
enroll in Part D, you pay a monthly
premium, an annual deductible
and a portion of each prescription.
The incentive the Bush
administration estimates Part D


could cut prescription drug costs in
half for most Medicare beneficiar-
ies, and could eventually cover
about 11-million low-income and
disabled Americans.
"This is protection for now and
the future," says Susan Walker,
Medicare Part D Team Leader for
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Flori-
da. "You never know when you're
going to have that life-changing
event that could require you to be
on five or six drugs. Most seniors
are on a fixed income and they're
very savvy shoppers. They do their
homework. And they realize the
benefits of purchasing Part D both
for their piece of mind and the
financial benefit."
Walker says the insurance giant
has seen a large volume of calls
from seniors interested in the cov-
erage to offset potential drug cost
increases in the future. "We've had
great response," she said, estimat-
ing "tens of thousands of people
across Florida have enrolled."
It's important to note, Medicare
beneficiaries have time to compare
plans before they make a decision.
Beneficiaries have until May 15 to
enroll without paying higher pre-
miums and are urged by govern-

ment officials, advocacy groups,
and private insurers to do their
research and ask questions.
"Our job right now is to let peo-
ple know there's help out there for
them. This is a really important
benefit and it's worth the time they
need to take to learn it," says
Cheryl Matheis of the American
Association for Retired Persons.
Some other important tips:
Insurers advise keeping a list of
the name, dosage and cost of
your prescriptions. Since differ-
ent Part D plans cover different
drugs, this will help you compare
plans and choose the right one to


meet your needs.
Also, enrollees in Medicare
Advantage HMO and/or PPO plans
may not have to do anything to
receive Part D drug coverage in
2006. For example, Blue Cross and
Blue Shield of Florida Medicare
Advantage plans automatically pro-
vide Part D coverage to enrollees.
And people on a fixed income
may qualify for assistance in cover-
ing the costs of premiums and co-
pays. To find out if you're eligible,
call 1-800-MEDICARE or visit
www.medicare.gov or the Social
Security Administration online at
www.ssa.gov.

Protest

Continued From Page 1
an employee of Structural Sys-
tems told commissioners. Struc-
tural System representatives said
the city's decision to side with
Milani a Palm Beach County-
based company that is interest-
ed in developing a mix of resi-
dential and commercial land on
the property has effectively
put them out of business.
At its March 7 meeting, the
city hall chambers was crowded
with employees of the company
who urged commissioners to
reconsider their decision. The
group largely focused on why
South Bay, given the opportunity
to allow an established business
to continue operating, would
instead choose a company that
has not had the same chance to
prove its commitment to the
community.
Structural Systems made a
bid for the property soon after it
was advertised; working closely
with another of the bidders, Cit-
rus. Together, the two privately
charted out a plan that would
allow Structural Systems a place
in the business park. With the
city choosing to negotiate
instead with Milani, company
representatives say that their
future is not certain anymore.
"I'm here in a state of per-
plexity," said the head of the
company, Dr. John Ambrose.
"You have taken a vote, which is
tantamount to putting us out of
business. I have lodged a protest
and I will follow it up with what-
ever it takes."
South Bay Mayor Clarence
Anthony, who cast his vote for
Citrus for their commitment to
work with Structural Systems,
reminded Structural employees
that there was still a hope for
them.
"Suprano Structures have an
opportunity, if they desire, to still
negotiate with that new property
owner," he said at the meeting.
"You need to encourage him so
that you can keep that job. The
commission did not vote to
close down Suprano Struc-
tures."
Michael Jackson, the city's
former city manager and a con-
sultant for Structural Systems, in
questioning the city's decision,
drew on his experience in South
Bay in the wake of the closing of
South Bay Growers. When the
agricultural company shut
down, it placed many of South
Bay's residents in a distressing
financial situation, he said.
"Our community was com-
pletely changed by that," he told
commissioners. "I'm not asking
you to defend your vote I just
don't understand your vote."
The commission and the
city's legal counsel will review
the protest and make a determi-
nation within 30 days whether
the points of assertion on the
document are justified or not.

Breaking 'do not call' law nets two more lawsuits


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced that he has
taken legal action against two
telemarketers for violating Flori-
da's "Do Not Call" law.
A lawsuit filed in Leon County
Circuit Court alleges that
Phoenix Group Marketing Inc., of
Fort Lauderdale, made at least 10
telephone calls to Florida resi-
dents on the state's Do Not Call
list during the last 10 months. In
addition, all of the calls con-
tained recorded messages,
which is a separate violation of
state law, and the callers failed to
properly identify themselves.
A separate lawsuit filed Pinel-
las County Circuit Court against
South Florida Travel Authority


Festival

Continued From Page 1
have partnered with Afro Arts to
offer a step show at the Bill Bai-
ley Gymnasium across the street
from. the festival. To start at 6:30
p.m., the step show will feature
local youth groups and school
clubs.
Terrion Nelson of Joy Produc-
tions, who sings a mixture of
R&B, Jazz and Rap, will be the
main headliner of the event.
Organizers continue to look for
local entertainment acts to fill
slots throughout the day.


Inc., of Fort Lauderdale, alleges
that the company called at least
three Florida telephone numbers
on the list since September. The
legal action claims that the com-
pany played a pre-recorded mes-
sage in each of the calls it made
and failed to properly identify
itself.
"Consumers who join the pro-
gram are entitled to be spared
the intrusion of commercial tele-
marketing calls, and we're com-
mitted to seeing that their privacy
is protected," Mr. Bronson said.
"We have little tolerance for
companies who flout the law."
Each of the lawsuits seeks an
injunction prohibiting the com-
panies from making any future
calls to residents on the list and
fines of up to $10,000 for each of


the calls it made to prohibited
phone numbers. Mr. Bronson's
department has collected or
obtained judgments of more
than $1.5 million against compa-
nies that have called residents on
the list, and several such legal


actions are pending in courts
throughout the state.
The Commissioner encour-
ages Floridians to join the pro-
gram, which prohibits most
commercial telemarketers from
calling numbers on the list.


Saturday's events are pref-
aced by the Proud Heritage Ban-
quet, held the night before the
actual festival. This year the ban-
quet will be held at the Dolly
Hand Cultural Arts Center and
will serve to honor the men and
women of the school system
who take charge of serving food
to students and faculty. The ban-
quet is open to the public and is
set to begin at 7:30 p.m.
Ms. Harper, who is helping
festival coordinator Robbie
Everett this year, invites the com-
munity to the festival, "Come
out, have a good time and
patronize our local businesses."

the program, consumers can call

The 10.42-pound monster was caught by Chris Rand of
Weston Florida while fishing in Moonshine Bay on Lake
Okeechobee. He was using a Purple Worm with Gold
Flake Glitter made by Gambler Lures of Florida. The fish
was caught March 5, during the BASS BUSTERS BIG

Dairies reduce phosphorus in runoff


By Audrey Blackwell
OKEECHOBEE Four area
dairy farms are making progress
on reducing the amount of
phosphorus from their opera-
tions as a result of practices initi-
ated through the Best Available
Technologies (BAT) project of
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD).
A dozen water-related agency
people and area dairymen
attended a BAT meeting on
Wednesday, March 8, at the
SFWMD's Service Center at 205
N. Parrott Ave.
Representatives of SFWMD,
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services,
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection, University of
Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, Natural
Resources Conservation Ser-
vices, and local dairymen Randy


and Doug Burnlain attended.
Del Bottcher, president of Soil
and Water Engineering Technol-
ogy, Inc., updated the group on
the progress of the BAT project
his firm has been leading since
2001. The goal is to reduce tihe
export of phosphorus from four
dairy operations into Lake Okee-
chobee.
There are 20 dairy operations
in Okeechobee County, and
those dairies that are not part of
the BAT project are engaged in
other practices to help reduce
the loss of phosphorus from
their farms. They are involved
with an Agriculture Nutrient
Management Plan to help their
operation become nutrient bal-
anced and get a handle on their
imports and exports of phos-
phorus.
The four BAT dairy farms are
Butler Oaks, Davie, Dry Lake and
Milking R. Even though Dry Lake


Dairy was sold recently, the BAT
system is still in operation
because residual phosphorus
remains on the land and when it
rains, it can leach out of the soil.
Each of the four dairies has a
different technology system in
place for moving and treating
the water. Such systems usually
involve a pump that moves
water to a retention pond, a floc-
culation pond, chemical injec-
tion and large drying beds.
According to Gary Ritter, an
engineer with SFWMD, the origi-
nal goal for dairy operations was
to meet a goal of 1,200 ppb
(parts per billion) for phospho-
rus export. Many were above
that before the Lake Okee-
chobee Protection Act was
passed in 2003.
"We said we would do better
and bring the dairies below that,
and each of the four has
achieved that. With the systems,


SFWMD speeds i.d. of algae


With names like Spirogyra,
Mastogloia and Schizothrix
these common types of algae
sound more like gourmet pasta
dishes than slimy pond scum
that grows on rocks or other
plants in the Everglades ecosys-
tem. However, this pond scum
- or periphytic algae have a
very critical and beneficial func-
tion: they are a natural link in the
food chain, consumed by small
invertebrates and fish and are
sensitive indicators of environ-
mental change in wetland sys-
tems. Periphyton are the first
and fastest biological indicators
to respond to changes to water
quality conditions in the Ever-
glades ecosystem.
By monitoring and studying
periphyton, scientists can pro-
vide data needed to evaluate the
progress and success of the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan (CERP) under
the Restoration, Coordination
and Verification (RECOVER)
Program. To obtain monitoring
results sooner and quantify
complex periphyton dynamics
and water quality interactions,
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) and
Florida Atlantic University (FAU)
scientists are implementing -
for the first time a faster way
of monitoring periphyton.
Today, the SFWMD Got:\etring
Board authorized a three-year
cooperative agreement with FAU
for monitoring Everglades peri-


phyton using chemotaxomony
technology, a rapid-assessment
monitoring method.
The $240,000 agreement uses
a well-established method
known as chemotaxonomy to
quantify periphyton abundance
and composition of different
types of algae based on diagnos-
tic pigments. Samples can be
analyzed faster than traditional
methods, such as chlorophyll a
or taxonomy.
The current method of moni-
toring can take between six to 18
months to complete, while this
rapid screening method reports
results in two to four weeks, said
District project manager and
environmental scientist Scot


Hagerthey, Ph.D.
Because periphyton respond
rapidly to changes in water
chemistry, this method will
allow more rapid identification
of areas that may be undergoing
changes due to CERP influences
that may otherwise be missed
by traditional sampling meth-
ods.
More than 480 samples will
be collected each year from sites
throughout the Everglades
region starting April 2006. The
chemotaxomonic assessment of
these samples will be reported
in the context of their relation-
ships to other key RECOVER
projects, in the Annual Systems
Status Report.


with manners?


they are all down around 200
ppb," he said.
The four dairies involved in
the BAT project are actual work-
ing dairies that can serve as
models for other dairy farmers
in the future, especially as
SFWMD works toward maintain-
ing phosphorus levels at a total
maximum daily load (TMDL) of
140 metric tons.
Currently, the lake averages
500 to 600 tons of phosphorus.
SFWMD has targeted reaching the
desired TMDL by the year 2015.
Dairy farm runoff represents only
a portion of what contributes to
phosphorus in the lake.
According to Mr. Ritter, the
district will do a cost analysis of
the BAT project for funding.
They will look at what it costs to
install and maintain a new tech-
nology system and compute the
cost per the amount of phospho-
rus removed.
"We want to make sure oper-
ating the technology is cost
effective," he said.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?
