Undocumented
workers as victims of
crime increasing

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE More and
more undocumented workers liv-
ing in the Glades area are becom-
ing nameless victims of crime,
faced with a group of criminals
who are escalating the violence
with which they attack them and


refusing help from the local law
enforcement agencies to stop it.
With an increasingly active
national debate on immigration
reform, including a march held
here Monday, it seems that the
crimes are once again on the rise
and police are urging the victims to
step forward without fear of their
illegal status.
"The Haitian and Hispanic
communities are being attacked,
and the primary reason is because
they are illegal aliens," said Sgt.
Detective Calipto Gonzalez with


the Belle Glade Police Department.
Working closely with city hall,
officials with the police department
will be organizing meetings with
the Hispanic and Haitian communi-
ty in the near future, two groups that
are feeling the brunt of the crimes.
For many of the undocument-
ed workers living in the Glades
area, calling police after experienc-
ing crime means facing the possi-
bility of being deported by the
same law enforcement agencies
that should help them.
So they don't.

Corps debuts Everglades


Restoration; uses the Kiosk


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE At $10 bil-
lion, the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Project is the
largest environmental rehabilita-
tion project in the world today.
With those billions pledged
toward restoring the natural
water resources in the Ever-
glades, the project also symbol-
izes the promise of jobs and
money that the local communi-
ties can potentially tap into.
The problem is that some
people today, including many
residents in the area, don't com-
pletely understand the project,
its purpose, or what potential


benefit the average person can
expect to see from the 30-year
plan.
In an effort to change that
locally, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers debuted the Ever-
glades Restoration Kiosk at the
Belle Glade campus of Palm
Beach Community College. The
kiosk, which is basically a com-
puter inside of a large cabinet,
takes the user through an ani-
mated, vivid trek through the
project and, in only a few min-
utes, is able to enlighten
strangers to the CERP.
It is a perfect way, Malissa S.
Booth, outreach specialist for the
corps of engineers, said, to teach
the local communities exactly


how the project, "Literally right
in your background," will affect
the area.
Formally dubbed the CERP
Information Network Kiosk, the
display will be made available to
the general public at the site
through the summer. Represen-
tatives of the governmental
agencies working,-together on
the restoration project are hop-
ing that the kiosk will be well uti-
lized by local residents.
The kiosk has a user-friendly
touch screen that lets users navi-
gate through an easy menu that
details each part of the project.
See Kiosk Page 9


The single-biggest factor in the
resurgence of the crimes is the
attackers awareness of how few
of their victims will ever report the
crime to police. They are targeted
by armed robbers who stalk their
victims for days. The undocument-
ed people, mostly farm laborers
cashing their checks on weekends
when they are attacked, rarely
report the crimes. For some, it is
simply another part of their daily
lives as illegal immigrants.
But the reality is much different,
police say. According to police,


nobody, whether they are resi-
dents or undocumented workers,
should be victims of crime.
"These people are searching
for a better life," said Detective
Gonzalez. "When this happens, I
want to put a stop to it."
Police say the immigrants are
now faced with a problem that
doesn't seem to be going away
anytime soon. Their attackers have
begun to get in the habit of rob-
bing them, holding them at gun-

City may



reconsider



former action


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY Facing
increasing pressure from a com-
pany threatening to close its
doors, commissioners in South
Bay presented a motion to
reconsider a previous motion to
award land in its business park
to a single developer.
The commission tabled the
motion to reconsider to allow a
fifth commissioner the chance
to review it before a final vote is
taken. The approval or rejection
of that recommendation is
expected to have a strong eco-
nomic impact to the city.
In. trying to spur new devel-
opment to occur locally, the city
now finds itself in a mounting
fight between one of the compa-
nies that was not chosen and
faces an issue that threatens to


escalate into a legal battle.
On one hand, if the city
decides not to change its initial
recommendation to award the
land to Milani, a company that
plans to build a mix of residential
and commercial property on the
land, they risk disenfranchising
employees of Structural Systems
who now believe that their future
rests on the city's shoulders.
If they choose to rescind their
previous action with Milani,
South Bay is positioned to face a
potential suit against that com-
pany. While Milani has not said
whether it plans to pursue any
legal recourse in the matter,
commissioners nevertheless
asked to be properly informed
on what could occur if they pro-
ceed with the recommendation.

Relay for Life


2006 approaches


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Every year,
the Relay for Life event is held in
a different city in the Glades, and
with each passing year the event
has grown to become a tradition
of sorts for the local residents
who flock each time to join in a
fun and worthwhile cause.
That time of the year is quick-
ly approaching now, with the
actual event only a few weeks
away. Event organizers are now
actively recruiting more teams
and volunteers to take part in the
fight against cancer and partici-
pate in what should be an enter-
taining time in Belle Glade.
The Relay for Life event an
American Cancer Society event
whose chief mission is to raise
money for cancer research -


has had its special moments
throughout the way, and each
year is always different from the
last.
The main premise remains
the same: Teams will participate
in the fundraising by walking
laps around the track area.
Teams are required to have a
presence on the track at all
times, and walkers are asked to
continue their journey until the
end of the event the next day.
A luminaria service remem-
bers poignantly those who have
succumbed to the disease and
those that continue to fight it,
while local entertainment takes
the stage to spur the walkers on.
Between the fundraising and the
games, residents come together

TO THE RESIDENTS OF GLADES COUNTY
SAY "NO! TO A LANDFILL in MOORE HAVEN
We are writing this letter to inform all residents as well as non residents who
have a vested interest in Moore Haven of a project the City Council is working on.
The City of Moore Haven council is in negotiations with Republic Services a Solid
Waste company in putting in a LANDFILL in the City of Moore Haven. They are
at the stage of acquiring the land (Duda Farm property), annexing the land into the
City and establishing a DUMP in your community.

There are many articles on the internet about this company and how they have
destroyed other communities. PLEASE GET INVOLVED!!!!
Whether it be Republic or another firm do you want a Garbage dump in your back
yard? Methane gas which landfills produce is a silent killer! Methane gas will be
generated for years after the landfill has reached capacity. All in your back yard.
That is just one issue- not factoring in truck traffic, illegal things being dumped into
the landfill, WATER CONTAMINATION, and a beautiful community being
known as the regional dumping ground, The City Council seems to think it's a
great idea because the city has been promised they will receive millions from
Republic for letting them put a Dump in your back yard. No one has factored in
what cities have spent suing Republic for multiple violations. Again search the
internet. Though the millions promised might be a short term fix for the City,
There are better ways to increase revenues without destroying this quaint town
and beautiful County.

Garbage trucks from neighboring counties and cities will use this DUMP
Highway 78 and 27 will have more accidents because of truck traffic, Republic
also contacted Glades County with the same proposal and the County rejected
their offer, so the only way for Republic Waste to put a dump in this area is to have
it annexed into the city.

The City Council will meet and a small group of men will make a major deci-
sion for our community by advertising it in the local paper a few times (maybe) in
hopes the community doesn't respond so they can approve it. They will be long
gone after their decision and your children will have to deal with the problems that
could occur or the embarrassment that their community is the dumping grounds
for all the other communities, as you can tell we are against the LANDFILL. This
ad is in no way sponsored by the Glades County Democrat and we would like to
apologize to Mr. Young for any confusion. The purpose of the mass mailing was to
let the City Council who will do what ever they want unless YOU act and the
Glade County Democrat know your feelings, we felt the Glades County Democrat
would keep the council in check with what its citizens really want and demand.
Remember the Councilmen are elected officials and unless a very strong appeal is
made against he landfill YOU'RE GETTING A REGIONAL LANDFILL regard-
less of lake contamination, soil contamination, esthetics, and the countless other


problems it will bring. Voice your opposition by calling CITY HALL AT 863-946-
0711 or your County Commissioner Russell Echols at 863-946-6000. Write the
editors of this newspaper, contact all your elected officials SPEAK UP AND BE
HEARD.

Sincerely,
Gail Brown on behalf of concerned citizens against a Moore Haven Landfill

Life and death and life beyond death!


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My sister-in-law was working
in the kitchen and asked my
brother to help her. She called,
got angry, told him she was going
to throw the dinner down the sink
if he didn't come out to help and
finally went into the living room to
find him and give him a piece of
her mind.
What she found was a 30-year
old healthy, active young husband
passed out on the floor. That was
the beginning of a 17-year
odyssey that began with a trip to a
local emergency room, tests, the
advice that they should "live it up"
because he had six months to
live. Family intervention and the
belief that "we can do better than
that" led to more doctors, more
tests, surgery and 17 years more
life instead of six months. The first
death sentence was not the end
- it was a prelude to the belief
that there was something beyond
it and there was!
I have visited and prayed with


many patients over the years of
my ministry, dead in many ways,
then resurrected one day when
life returns and the prayers and
hopes of families are rewarded -
there really was a new life that fol-
lowed.
The Easter story is about a
group of followers on Calvary
who see a death sentence carried
out, expect the end and why
not! Jesus did what he came to
do, but He died, after all, and He
was buried! Then came a new
life, discovered "by accident"
because two women wish to pay
respect at his tomb. But the tomb
is empty and the world is
changed.
The Easter message is, "death
is not the end!" and life continues.
It takes faith, but we can see it
around us in small ways every
day. Life is in the rebirth of spring-
time, the renewal of relationships
with loved ones, the healing of
someone lost, the addition to a
family, the person who has led to
wasted life and finally "gets the
message", the finding of some-
thing or someone lost, the release


of a captive or the freedom of
someone imprisoned the East-
er story is all around us.
There is a certain ironic, wry
twist that goes with the Easter
story that I love you. You may
recall that Satan tempts Eve in the
Garden and tells her, "You will not
surely die for God knows that
when you eat of it (the apple)
your eyes will be opened. (Gene-
sis 3:4)."
In fact, in site of Eve's suc-
cumbing; God heals, God restores
- and Eve and the rest of us do
not die, but we live. We live, not
because of what evil brings us but
because what Eve, and what all of
us hope for, comes in spite of the
best efforts of evil. It comes
because it is God's will and
because the Lord promised it, and
because the knowledge of faith
that we receive through the Easter
story.
Through all of the scared sto-
ries is the story of life and the life
to come the real knowledge
and gift come from God. The devil
tempts Eve to share in what God
will give freely to live and to


know the victory is won, the life is
given.
The Bible ends with the book
telling us to listen to what the spir-
it says to the churches, "to him
who overcomes, I will give the
right to eat from the Tree of life,
which is in the paradise of God
(Revelation 2:7)"
Easter is when the Lord gave
us that right and we take time out
to remember and give thanks for
so great a gift. Those who have
gone before us follow in the
Lord's footsteps their tombs
are empty and they no longer live
in them.
Instead, they live with God
because he came, died and lived
again. When Lazarus died, Jesus
told his sister Martha, "I am the
resurrection and the life (John11:
25)" and we now see just all of
what that means "resurrection"
that death is not the end because
Jesus has been raised, and "life"
because that is his gift to us life
goes on beyond this life and is
ours in eternity. Alleluia the Lord
is risen he has risen indeed!


All of us have a donkey we must ride


Submitted Photo/U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The areas of the dike around Lake Okeechobee, which were
eroded by the winds and waves of Hurricane Wilma in Octo-
ber 2005 have been repaired with new lime rock fill and a
rock berm to prevent further damage until a permanent solu-
tion is put in place.


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Once again, we are coming
up to Easter. Once again, we are
coming up to tax time. Once
again Easter and taxes fall on the
same week. Once again I find
myself thinking about our Easter
services, our annual butterfly
release following those services,
and all of the other special Holy
Week activities while dealing
with the nagging weight that I
need to get our taxes done.
Once again, I find it ironic that
as I sit at my computer outlining
Easter messages and letters with
my Bible opened to the passage
proclaiming, "He is not here, He
is risen", that I have next to them
my tax records for 2005 pro-
claiming, "Here I am, send me!"


With apologies to the IRS, one
seems very heavenly and the
other very earthly. One minute
I'm at Calvary, the next I'm at my
checkbook. The time I spend on
one seems worshipful, the other
worldly. One reminds how God
paid it all, and the other reminds
that I have a lot to pay. In all of
this, I try to keep in mind the
words of Christ to render to Cae-
sar the things that are Caesar's
and to God the things that are
God's.
But, once again, as I read the
Palm Sunday Scriptures, I find
my thoughts toward the guy who
gave the donkey for Jesus to ride
into Jerusalem on that first Palm
Sunday. We don't know his
name or what he looks like. We
only know that Jesus told His dis-
ciples that, "If anyone asks you


why you are taking the donkeys,
say that the Master has need of
them, and he will send them at
once." Matthew 21:3
Did this guy just give his ani-
mals to someone in need, or did
he know it was Jesus who need-
ed the donkey? Did he worry
about getting the donkey back? I
wonder about these things
because sometimes it's hard for
me to give as freely as I might.
There are times I like to keep my
animals to myself for my own
use. Sometimes I get the impres-
sion that God wants me to give
Him something and sometimes I
don't give it because I'm not sure
or it's not convenient or I'm wor-
ried about the security of getting
back what I am giving. Some-
times I feel like I have missed
opportunities. Sometimes I won-


der if my little deeds and giving,
today will really make a differ-
ence in the long run. Other times
I hear and obey our Lord, and
feel honored that a gift of mine
would be used to carry Jesus for-
ward.
The reality is that all of us have
a donkey. You and I each have
something in our lives, which, if
given back to God, could, like the
donkey, move Jesus and his story
further down the road. Maybe
you can sing, or hug, or teach a
class, or visit a neighbor, or speak
a foreign language. Maybe you
can write a check. Whichever,.
that's your donkey. Whichever, it
could. be that God wants to
mount your donkey and enter
into another place, another situa-
tion, another heart.


Herbert Hoover Dike is rehabilitated


- .. ..

Significant erosion to the Herbert Hoover Dike was caused
by Hurricane Wilma in an area just south of Pahokee.


Hurricane Wilma


damage to dike repaired


By MaryAnn Morris

Repairs of the damage to the
Herbert Hoover Dike by Hurri-
cane Wilma in October 2005
were completed at the begin-
ning of December by the Army
Corps of Engineers (COE). The
(COE), responsible for mainte-
nance of the dike, made tempo-
rary repairs to the slope of the
dike adjacent to the lake across
from the airport just south of
Pahokee.
Hurricane Wilma's winds
caused waves on Lake Okee-
chobee such that the 70-year-old
dike, with its 1950s asphalt stabi-
lization, was seriously eroded in
an area behind the airport near
Pahokee.
The eroded areas were
cleaned of debris, the adjacent
asphalt was removed, new


crushed lime rock fill material
was brought in to reconstruct
the dike slope, new sod was
placed to cover the areas, and a
temporary rock berm was con-
structed at the bottom of the
slope to help break up any
waves from future storm events
until a more permanent solution
can be put in place.
"Currently, we are working
on designing that solution with
the hope that it can be put in
place before the summer," said
Jacob Davis, engineer for the
COE. "The solution will consist
of armor material (riprap, cable-
tied concrete blocks, or gabion
mattresses) covering the areas
that were damaged. It is our
intent to eventually provide new
armor protection after ripping
out all the asphalt as funding
permits."


By MaryAnn Morris

LAKE OKEECHOBEE The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(COE) has the responsibility to
maintain the Herbert Hoover Dike,
which encircles 730-acre Lake
Okeechobee. A "rehabilitation" of
this 70-year-old flood-control
structure was begun by the Corps
last year. This construction, long in
coming has taken years to obtain
the necessary funding and to gain
the approval of concerned envi-
ronmental groups and water man-
agers.
"The Dike is designed for a
probable maximum flood eleva-
tion of 26 feet coupled with a 100-
year wind event with winds of 109
miles an hour," said Luis Ruiz, a
registered professional engineer
and Chief of the COE Geotechnical
Division.
"There has been some leakage,
called 'piping' or 'boils' seen since
the 1980s. These areas are
repaired as they are observed,"
said Mr. Ruiz.
The Herbert Hoover Dike Reha-
bilitation Project, is the long-term
solution. This solution was pro-
duced after 19 years of study and
permit reviews since piping was
first seen in 1984.
A "cut-off wall" will be con-
structed on the landside of the
dike. It will be two feet thick,


impervious to seepage of water
and visible from the adjacent road
(U.S. 441 S). The top of the wall
will be at 26 feet above sea level.
The wall will extend down
through the dike to 10 feet below
sea level. This will prevent water
from the lake from seeping
through the dike. A gravel-filled
trench near the existing rim canal
at the bottom of the slope of the
dike will carry off water from the
slope of the dike below the cut-off
wall.
The work will be done section
by section under individual con-
tracts to best utilize the funds allo-
cated each Federal Budget year.
"There are 6,200 feet of wall
built on the first section (Reach 1-
A)," said Jacob Davis, of the COE.
"Reach 1-A extends roughly from
Port Myaka to Sand Cut. The
design documents for Reaches 1-B
and 1-C are about 60 percent com-
plete," continued Mr. Davis. "This
is where we look at different solu-
tions and methods and decide

what is best for this particular site."
Reaches 1-B and 1-C will
extend south from Sand Cut down
to Culvert C-10 in Pahokee just
north of the Belle Glade Airport.
"We are also working on the
plans and specifications for Reach

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My dog
has an excessive chewing prob-
lem! He will not stop chewing
his back left foot. This has been
going on for
about a
month. I took
him to my vet
and he said it
was a behav-
ioral thing to
do with bore-
dom. He did,
however, treat
him with corti- Doc
sone and Savvy
advised me to
play with him more and give him
more attention. Butchy is 12
years old and doesn't seem to
want to play all that much more.
I bought him some new toys,
treats, and a dog DVD that is sup-
posed to entertain him. Things
haven't changed all that much.
He still chews, and now has
chewed a hole in one toe in par-
ticular. Help, my dog is eating his
foot! What do I do? Thanks Doc,
Jorge Sanchez in Loxahatchee.
A: Dear Jorge, this is some-
times a common thing! Three
things come to my mind here.
The first thing is what your vet
had told you. That condition is
called a lick granuloma. Licking,
which is excessive and causes a
wound in the area. It is usually
due to boredom or even habit


after a while. Secondly, I was
thinking about pain! Is Butchy
arthritic? Maybe his joints hurt
him and that is why he is licking
a lot. Talk to your vet about a
product called Metacam. Meta-
cam is a liquid, once-a-day anti-
arthritis product for dogs, and it
really works! The third thing I am
thinking of is a bit more serious.
Sometimes older dogs chew one
toe in particular due to cancer.
We call this condition "cancer
toe."
The type of cancer, which this
may be is a bone cancer called
osteosarcoma. This is a very
aggressive cancer, which does
spread. One way to diagnose this
is to take an X-ray of the affected
bone. A classic radiographic sign
called a "star burst" pattern on
the bone is almost 100-percent
diagnostic for this condition.
Sometimes a biopsy and
histopathology is indicated as
well. Jorge, if it is an osteosarco-
ma you want to diagnose it
ASAP. There are some treatment
options and the sooner you
move on it, the better Butchy's
chances will be. I hope it's not
cancer Jorge. Keep me posted
and best wishes, Doc Savvy.

Former county employee arrested


The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement announces the
arrest of Jose Serrano, 51, of
LaBelle, Fla. Serrano is charged
with official misconduct of a pub-
lic official, bribery by a public offi-
cial and public assistance fraud.
FDLE special agents and mem-
bers of FDLE's Fort Myers Phar-
maceutical Diversion Response
Team (DRT) took Serrano into
custody on March 16 after a
seven-month investigation.
FDLE financial crime investiga-
tors received information that Ser-
rano was using his authority as a
Hendry County Social Services
Case Manager to solicit prescrip-


tion narcotic pain medications
from clients. Investigators say dur-
ing a seven-month period in 2004,
Serrano falsi-
fied applica-
tions for clients
making them .
eligible for the
Social Services B
Community
Service Block
Grant Program
and the county
funded Emer- Jose
agency Assis- Serrano
tance Program
in return for narcotics such as
OxyContin and Xanex. Serrano


allegedly attempted to bribe pro-
gram recipients with additional
food vouchers and cash from vari-
ous programs that he was respon-
sible for administering in
exchange for their prescription
pills. According to witnesses, he
harassed Social Services clients
on a daily basis in an attempt to
solicit the pills. Many recipients
complied, often delivering their
prescription drugs to Serrano at
his Social Services office located
in the Hendry County Court-
house. One recipient told investi-
gators he feared that if he did not
turn over his pain killers to Serra-
no that Serrano would cut off his


HUD housing and his family
would be left homeless.
Serrano is believed to have
fraudulently issued a total of
$2,486.81 in Hendry County
Social Services benefits during
this seven-month period. All three
charges that Serrano faces are
felonies.
The DRT is a task force made
up of state and federal agencies
that have authority to investigate
criminal misuse of prescribed
medications. This can include
doctors who illegally prescribe;
pharmacists who illegally distrib-
ute; and individuals who illegally
obtain prescription drugs.

HC SO brings down
another grow house
FLAGHOLE Intelligence
leads developed by the Criminal
Investigation Division of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
has led to the 11th bust of an ille-
gal Hendry County grow house


since February of 2005.
According to Sheriff Ronnnie
Lee, a search conducted at
approximately 10:20 a.m. on April
10, was made at 320 Kilpatrick
Loop in the Flaghole community
of Hendry County where investi-
gators discovered marijuana
plants ranging in size from two to
two to three feet tall.
The plants were being cultivat-
ed with elaborate electronic aided
equipment in two rooms of the
residence. The seizure of the
plants occurred just prior to har-
vest. Estimated value of the plants


is $45,000-$50,000.
The two people arrested both
were from Dade County. Yajaira
Irizarry, age 53, a Venezuelan citi-
zen in the U.S. on a work visa, and
Rafael Suarez-Perez, age 30, were
transported and booked into the
Hendry County Jail.
HC SO investigates
missing funds
LABELLE On April 6, the
clerk of Hendry County Court dis-
covered that approximately
$60,000 was unaccounted for and


requested that the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office conduct an inves-
tigation.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said Lieu-
tenant Joe Lee and Investigator
William Griffin conducted the
investigation and, with the assis-
tance of Clerk of Court Barbara
Butler, determined the money
was taken by an employee. At the
conclusion of the investigation,
an employee, Angela Banda, age
31, was arrested and.charged
with the theft. Bond was set at.
$75,000.

group of Sheriffs


TALLAHASSEE Twenty-eight
Florida Sheriffs endorsed Attorney
General Charlie Crist and his cam-
paign to be Florida next Governor.
The group, representing the vast
majority of Florida Republican
Sheriffs, as well as one Democrat
Sheriff and one independent Sher-
iff, made its announcement at a
press conference in Tallahassee.
In accepting the endorsement,
Crist spoke about the important
role that the Sheriffs play in keeping
Floridians safe. He said as Gover-
nor, he would work shoulder to
shoulder with Florida Sheriffs to
protect Florida children, seniors
and families.
Charlie Crist is a true Republican
who has been a champion for
ensuring that government meets its
primary obligation to protect life and
ensure domestic tranquility, said
Pasco County Sheriff Bob White.
Florida sheriffs put their lives on
the line every day to ensure the safe-
ty of all Floridians and I am honored
and humbled by the endorsement
of these dedicated law enforcement
officers, said Crist.
Pinellas County Sheriff Jim
Coats added, Charlie Crist has a
proven track record as a principled
conservative and has the vision,
experience .and passion to lead

INI/Jose Zaragoza
The Budget Hotel is one of the areas in Belle Glade where
robbers target undocumented workers for money.


Crimes

point, or through sheer intimida-
tion, often beating them after rob-
bing them. The problem is well
known in the area and incidents of
this type have been dealt with in the
past. The crimes come in waves
and then fade away, before coming
back again. Accurate numbers of
the frequency with which the
crimes occur does not exist.
It is only when something worse
occurs, a stabbing or a shooting,
that officers are made aware of the
problem. The situation represents
an escalating issue that threatens to
boil over before it is controlled.
"I'm not concerned with their
illegal status," said Detective Gon-
zalez, who said that the depart-
ment does not check the status of
an immigrant unless ordered to do
so by the courts or the state. "These
people work very hard to do good
for their families. My job is to help
them if they are robbed, hurt."
The department is midway
through an investigation that offi-
cials hope will result in the arrests
of some of these groups that are
targeting the illegal immigrants.
While early in that investigation,
officers say that the culprits are
members of organized gangs in
Belle Glade.
But it isn't the only issue that
police have to contend with.
The problem now is that the
immigrants, tired of being robbed
and attacked, are sometimes taking
the law into their own hands. In an

incident recently that parallels one
from a few years ago, a group of
about 13 immigrants rushed a cou-
ple of would-be robbers at the Bud-
get Hotel in Belle Glade. The rob-
bers, who were holding a person at
gunpoint, fired gunshots into the
air to keep the crowd back before
running off.
"When they heard the screams
of the victim, everyone came out of
the rooms for the perpetrators,"
said the detective.
Several years back, a similar
band of thieves broke into one of
the rooms of the Budget Hotel, only
to find a room of angry workers,
still carrying their machetes from
work, lunging at them angrily and
frightening them away.
Though self-defense is an action
protected under law, self-defense in
large numbers is something else
entirely, police say. It may end up
costing the undocumented work-
ers more dearly than simply picking
up the phone to dial for help. It is a
concept that the immigrants must
understand, police said.
"If they're going to take the law
into their own hands, then they may
be breaking the law," said Detective
Gonzalez. If that happens, the vic-
tims may be the ones to end up in
jail instead of their assailants, some-
thing the detective would like to
keep from happening.
Detective Gonzalez said he feels
strongly about the issue. "I wish peo-
ple really knew how hard these peo-
ple work to bring that check home,"
he said. "To have someone take it
from them, that's not going to hap-
pen in Belle Glade. Not anymore."

Amy Hooker, the 2005 Harvest
Queen, was on hand to crown the
2006 Harvest Queen, Candace San-

was Tanya Lopez. The second run-
ner up was Alison "Brooke" Allen.
Due to the judges not being able to
break the tie, both Alleigh
Schlechter and Elizabeth Yance will
share the title of third runner up for
the 2006 Harvest Queen court. The
judges commented that this was
one of the best groups of girls they

time. These ladies are all truly

to socialize with one another and
see the night fade into morning.
The event this year is scheduled
to take place April 21 and 22 at
Glades Day School, the site of the
Relay for Life in previous years.
Held on a rotational basis, the cities
of Pahokee and Belle Glade take
turns in hosting the event, which is
held at Glades Central Community
High School, Pahokee
Middle/Senior High School or
Glades Day.


Dispute
Continued From Page 1
Commissioner John Wilson
made the motion to reconsider the
bid award. After advice from the
city's legal counsel, Thomas Mont-
gomery, the commission voted to
table the motion to allow Commis-
sioner John Kyles, who was absent,
a chance to vote on it. Commission-
er Kyles, Wilson and Esther Berry
voted earlier to sell all of the land
inside the business park to Milani.
In explaining why he has recon-
sidered his vote, Commissioner
Wilson said Structural Systems,
along with a local restaurant cur-
rently located at the park, should be
allowed the chance to stay.
"I talked to the employees (of
Structural Systems), they feel
they're losing their jobs. I just want
to sit back and say I did all I could as
a commissioner," Commissioner
Wilson said at the April 4 meeting.
Commissioner Wilson proposed
that the city break up the land in the
park and have each company
awarded a section of it to resolve
any present disputes dealing with
ownership.
The city placed the business
park on the market last year,
accepting bids from a number of


Kiosk
Continued From Page 1
According to the Corps, the
machine is designed with all ages
in mind, with children as young as
six able to use the kiosk. "It's as
simple as a bank ATM and has
every fact you would like to know
about Everglades restoration," said
Ellen Underwood of Sunshine
Communications.
The kiosk's animated displays
do a good job of explaining the
technical jargon behind many of
the projects under CERP in an
informative yet easy-to-grasp way.
The idea behind the kiosk con-
cept, first introduced in 2004, is to
break down the barriers of the
complex theories of the project.
College officials welcomed the
opportunity to host the kiosk at
their location. "It's a lot of fun," Dr.
Beverly Robinson, provost of


The event is almost always well
attended, with a particularly strong
presence from all three municipali-
ties. It grows to become a competi-
tive in a friendly way event for
the three cities, with each vying for
the biggest presence at the Relay
for Life and the highest fundraising
amount. Usually, each of the three
law enforcement agencies the local
cities come together to take part in
the event as well.
This year the event's theme is
one grounded firmly in festivity.
With the area being hit so hard by
last year's hurricane, the goal this
time around is to bring the commu-


respondents. Those companies
included Structural Systems, which
has operated inside the city for
years, and Citrus and Milani, who
both expressed interest in purchas-
ing land at the park.
Reportedly, Citrus and Structur-
al Systems discussed a partnership
that would have allowed Structural
a site within that land to continue
its operations. With Milani the ulti-
mate winner of the bid, representa-
tives of Structural Systems said that
the company's future in the city
was no longer secure.
Since then, Structural Systems
has filed a formal protest against
the city and has made a number of
attempts to get the commission to
revisit the issue.
John Ambrose, the head of the
company, was disappointed that
the city did not go forward with a
vote last week. "I'm trying to figure
out if I need to bring my attorneys
to the next meeting," he told com-
missioners.
Responding to concerns from
the company, Mayor Clarence
Anthony said the motion to recon-
sider, "Caught all of us off guard.
We need to know the impact," said
the mayor, who added that it was
the first that any of the commission-
ers had heard Commissioner Wil-
son's proposal. "This is not an easy
decision," the mayor said.


PBCC's Belle Glade campus, said
Monday at the kiosk's unveiling
while tinkering with the unit. Dr.
Robinson urged residents to stop
by the kiosk and get informed on
the project.
The unit is especially wel-
comed in light of the college, the
Workforce Alliance and South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict's partnership to train people
from the local workforce to work
on several of the projects in CERP.
The certification process has
already attracted a number of resi-
dents to the college who are vying
for jobs in construction and heavy
equipment operation.
The corps, meanwhile, invites
feedback on CERP.
"It is every taxpayer's responsi-
bility to at least understand the
project," said Corps Deputy Com-
mander Andrew Goetz. "If you
don't understand that system, you
don't know if I'm spending your


$10-and-a-half billion wisely."

nities together for a night of fun and
enjoyment as residents mingle with
one another at the overnight event.
Kim Douglas, one of the festival
organizers and a lifelong supporter
of the event, invites the community
to come out and support the cause.
"We want all makes and models to
rub elbows with their neighbors in
a festival atmosphere," Ms. Dou-
glas said light-heartedly. "We want
more people introduced this year
so that there will be even more next
year."
American Cancer Society Asso-
ciate Director Susy Diaz hopes that
the community will again embrace
the event. "The unique thing about
Relay for Life is that it is about

bringing the community together.
In Palm Beach County, we find that
it brings a lot of dollars back to the
community," Ms. Diaz said, adding
that the money from previous
events have gone to funding worth-
while cancer research projects in
the county.

Washing often will help prevent Avian Flu To read more news, visit www.newszap.com.


Editor's note: This information
is the third part in a series on Pan-
demic Influenza provided by The
Hendry and Glades County
Health Departments. The series
will cover basic information and
actions to be taken if Pandemic
Flu becomes a realistic threat to
the citizens of Hendry and Glades
County.
How can I protect myself from
Bird Flu or other forms of flu?
The main way that illnesses
like colds and flu are spread is
from person to person in the res-
piratory droplets of coughs and
sneezes. This is called "droplet
spread". This happens when
droplets from the cough or
sneeze of an infected person
move through the air and are
deposited on the mouth or nose


of people nearby. Germs are also
spread when a person touches
the respiratory droplets that have
been deposited on a desk or other
surface and then touch their own
eyes, mouth or nose before wash-
ing their hands.
While there is no vaccination
currently available for bird flu, the
following simple steps can help
prevent any flu and limit the
spread of infection.
Wash your hands often.
Hands should be washed for 15-
20 seconds; about the amount of
time it takes to sing the "Happy
Birthday" song twice.
Each time you cough or
sneeze, cough or sneeze into a tis-
sue, throw the tissue away and
wash your hands.
e If you don't have a tissue,


sneeze or cough into your sleeve.
Stay away from people who
are sick.
Teach your children to wash
their hands frequently with soap
and water and cover their cough.
Stay home from work and
school if sick.
When soap and water are
not available, alcohol-based
wipes or gel sanitizers may be
used.
When traveling, avoid places
where avian flu is more likely to
be transmitted.
Family Emergency Health
Information Sheet
It is important to think about
health issues that could arise if an
influenza pandemic occurs and
how they could affect you and
your loved ones. For example, if a


mass vaccination clinic is set up in
your community, you may need
to provide as much information
as you can about your medical
history, especially if you have a
serious health condition or aller-
gy. According to Dr. Fernandez,
Medical Director of the Hendry
and Glades County Health Depart-
ments, "It is also important to
stock a three month supply of pre-
scription medications."
Create a family emergency
health plan using this informa-
tion. Fill in information for each
family member in the space pro-
vided. Like much of the planning
for a pandemic, this can also help
prepare for other emergencies.
The most current information
on Avian Flu is available at
http://www.pandemicflu.gov.

U.S. Border

Patrol will

help citrus
Florida citrus growers are
greatly encouraged by the
supportive nature of an alert
issued by the U.S. Customs &
Border Protection/Department
of Homeland Security yester-
day. The alert issued to all sta-
tions called for their officers to
be on the lookout for parcels
and/or other shipments con-
taining citrus plant material
during passenger baggage
inspection, mail facility
inspections, etc. This action
follows the state of Florida's
recent announcement allow-
ing the re-planting of citrus in
areas formerly quarantined for
Citrus Canker.
"If anything, this is clear
evidence that they recognize
the threat posed to the Florida
Citrus Industry stemming
from the desire of local citi-
zens to replant citrus in resi-
dential areas and the possibili-
ty of persons smuggling
propagative citrus materials
from outside the United States
to meet this demand," said Pat
Gomes, National Coordinator
for the Citrus Health Response
Plan, USDA, APHIS PPQ.

lucky recipients. Clewiston was
the only chapter to receive a
generator. Kubota authorities

laboratories.

Alico reports improved second quarter earnings


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ: ALCO), a leading landhold-
er and agribusiness company,
announced net earnings for the
second quarter of fiscal year 2006
of $2.7 million, or $0.36 per
share, compared with breakeven
results during the same period of
the prior year.
For the six months ended Feb-
ruary 28, 2006, net earnings were
$3.8 million, or $0.52 per share,
compared with $1.0 million, or
$0.13 per share, for the six
months ended February 28, 2005.
Operating revenues during the
second quarter totaled $21.5 mil-
lion, compared with $19.4 mil-
lion for the second quarter of the
prior year. This increase was pri-
marily due to increased revenues
from citrus operations resulting
from revenues earned by the
company's newly acquired sub-
sidiary, Bowen Brothers Fruit,
LLC ("Bowen").
Operating revenues for the six
months ended February 28, 2006
were $28.2 million, compared
with $27.0 million for the same
period of the prior year.
Pretax income from opera-
lions w\as $3.6 million foi Lh[I
quarter, compared %0ith a loss of
$0.9 million for the same quarter
of 2005. The increase was prima-
rily due to a favorable change in
estimate of $2.9 million resulting


from crop recoveries previously
recognized as casualty losses.
Addressing the divisional
results, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer John R. Alexan-
der noted that:
The Citrus division recorded
profits of $1.8 million and $2.4
million for the quarter and six
months ended February 28, 2006,
respectively, compared with $0.9
million and $1.7 million during
the same periods in 2005. This
increase is primarily attributable
to a price increase for citrus fruit
across the industry that has
resulted from the reduced citrus
supply, caused by hurricanes, cit-
rus canker finds and increased
real estate development in the
central and southern portions of
Florida. On February 13, 2006,
Alico, through Bowen, pur-
chased the assets of Bowen
Brothers Fruit Co., Inc. Bowen's
operations generated revenues of
$5.7 million and expenses of $5.7
million from the date of acquisi-
tion to February 28, 2006.
Sugarcane and sod generat-
ed a profit of $0.3 million for the
three months ended February 28,
u,.uti, 4.iJpaii d _villi LrFuak .i n
results for the same period during
the prior year. For the six months
ended February 28, 2006 and
2005, the sugarcane and sod divi-
sion generated a loss of $0.3 mil-


lion and a profit of $0.4 million,
respectively. The current loss was
primarily attributable to the rising
price of fertilizer and adjustments
made to the Company's invento-
ried sugarcane crop, which were
charged to cost of sales, for the six
months ended February 28, 2006.
Cattle profits were $0.1 mil-
lion and $0.6 million for the three
and six months ended February
28, 2006, respectively, compared
with $0.5 million and $0.7 million
for the same periods during 2005,
when the company sold more of
its calf crop to take advantage of
record high prices for calves.
Prices for beef cattle generally
have improved during the current
year compared with the prior year
($0.82 per pound average
received on all cattle sold for the
first six months of fiscal year 2006,
compared with $0.77 per pound
.average for the first six months of
fiscal 2005). The overall price
increase has served to offset the
reduced number of cattle sold.
The Company also sells veg-
etable transplants through its
subsidiary, Alico Plant World,
LLC, sells native plants from its
racinci llucatlyi,,and sells corn and,
beans from its farming opera-
tions. Income from these opera-
tions totaled $0.4 million and $0.1
million for the three and six
months ended February 28, 2006,


respectively, compared with $0.1
million and $0.2 million for the
same periods in 2005.

Clewiston Dixie


League underway


By Mark Young
CLEWISTON Clewiston's
Dixie League softball season is fast
underway, as young athletes took
to the clay diamond for softball
action beginning April 3.
Clewiston's traveling Dixie
Belles' Howell Oil, led by head
coach Kenneth Howell, saw his
young squad take an opening sea-
son loss to HCFL, coached by Trip
Whidden, despite some solid early
season hurling by pitchers Bonnie
Cortez and Sarah Howell. Taking
the mound for HCFL in the season
opener was young Zoe Perry.
Howell Oil opened up an early
advantage and held it until the third
inning when HCFL's bats came to
life to assume the lead for good, but
the Howell Oil squad launched a
comeback bid in the final inning
when Christina Sandoval came to
bat with the tying run standing on
second base.
With HCFL holding a slim 6-5
advantage, Sandoval launched a fly
ball single over the shortstop's
head. The Howell Oil runner took
off and received the go signal as she
made the game tying attempt to
score, but HCFL's Lovely Aviles


threw a rocket to home plate,
which was caught by catcher Dee-
Andra Trottie who laid down a per-
fect tag for the final out of the
game, securing HCFLs victory.
HCFL (Hendry County Fair and
Livestock) took their momentum
into LaBelle where the Clewiston
squad downed the LaBelle Gators
by a score of 3-1 with former
Clewiston standout Samantha
Ortiz, who recently moved to
LaBelle taking the mound for the
Gators and accounted for LaBelle's
only run of the game after drawing
a walk and stealing the bases to put
her in position for the score.
Ortiz's run held up for much of
the game before Clewiston awoke
their thunder sticks and had their
late game offensive efforts backed
up by solid pitching from Perry and
great defense from Janeria Hatcher
who thwarted an inside-the-park
homerun with a great throw from
the outfield. Hatcher would also be
responsible for the game-winning
hit when she drilled a two-run dou-
ble to give HCFL the advantage,
which would hold up for HCF's
second straight victory.
The two Clewiston squads will
have matched up once again by
press time.

U.S. Army Corps of engineers

launches life jacket loaner program


The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers at the St. Lucie Lock Recre-
ation Area will start a life jacket
loaner program for recreational
boaters who use the recreation
area's boat ramp.
Beginning on Thursday, March
30, boaters who don't have life
jackets on their vessels may bor-
row them from St. Lucie gate
attendant. Participants are
required to fill out a Life Jacket


Loaner Program form and to
return the jackets when they are
done boating.
Safe boating isn't just the
responsibility of the person
behind the wheel it applies to
everyone on board. Most boaters
do not plan on falling overboard,
and when they do, it is often too
late for action. Putting on a life
jacket when you need it is like try-
ing to put on a seat belt just


before a crash.
According to 2003 U.S. Coast
Guards statistics, there were 703
boating fatalities in U.S. waters -
576 of which were not wearing life
jackets. In the same year, 481 peo-
ple drowned 416 (almost 86
percent) were not wearing life
jackets. Many had basic swim-
ming skills, yet that was not
enough to save their lives. Boat
safe! Boat smart! Wear a life jacket!


was 14.45 pounds, with the first
place Big Bass topping the scales at
8.23 pounds.
The third place team and sec-
ond place Big Bass of the tourna-
ment was the team of Garry Long
and Kelly Autrey, of LaBelle and
Clewiston. Their overall weight
was 13.20 pounds with the second
largest bass of the tournament
weighing in at only 7.92 lbs.
Congratulations to all the win-
ners and thanks to all the sponsors
that make these tournaments hap-
pen. The next Gold Division Bass
Busters tournament will be held in
Clewiston, on lake Okeechobee
Sunday April 23. The team entry is
$100 and includes the Big Bass
jackpot.

Community rallies for Rubio and Reynolds


CLEWISTON On March 25,
many members of Clewiston
pulled together to raise funds for
two in our community that have
recently suffered tragedies.
Bobbi Jo (Clark) Rubio was in a
severe auto accident earlier this
month that has left her with severe
injuries and she is still in the hospi-
tal. Earl Reynolds suffered third-
degree burns over a tremendous
portion of his body due to a weld-
ing accident.
In just a few days, a benefit bar-
beque was arranged and held to
raise money to help in offsetting the
medical bills for Bobbi Jo and Earl.
The exact amount has yet to be
determined, as some money and
donations are still coming in, but
thousands of dollars were raised,
and this project was only success-
ful due to the hard work and self-
lessness of many of our communi-
ty members.
Allen Barfield spearheaded the


event, and deserves a great deal of
the credit for the barbeque occur-
ring. Others who were of great help
during this time were Bo Austin,
Tim and Shannon Reynolds of Pig
In Pig Out BBQ, Penny Barton, Bob
and Judy Dunham, Ziegler Norter,
Wayne Shaw, Steve Clark, Joyce
Rice, Spike, and everyone who
helped sell tickets or serve the
meals on Saturday.
Thanks also to the Clewiston
Elks Lodge for the use of their facili-
ties as the food was being prepared
prior to Saturday. There were lots of
others who helped, and we apolo-
gize if anyone was left off of this list.
An event like this shows why
Clewiston is America's Sweetest
Town, because when tragedy
strikes, Clewiston residents are
always ready to lend a hand.
Thanks to everyone who helped,
bought tickets or dinners, or donat-
ed to this cause.


All you have to do is look at the long line to tell that the food
must be great.

The second annual old-fashioned cakewalk benefit


4


Submitted to INI/Drew Shimkus
Chris Quinones wins a cake.


PAHOKEE Last year the
staff and residents at Glades
Health Care Center in Pahokee,
invited their friends and neigh-
bors to join them for a delicious
and fun afternoon and now they
are doing it again. The 2nd annu-
al GHCC Cake walk is took place
April 12, from 2-4 p.m. Last year
over $1,100 was raised.
As a non-profit organization,
what they lack in money they
have in heart at Glades Health
Care Center. The commitment to
excellence in providing loving
care and a nice place for their res-
idents continues. This year the
event was designed to raise funds
to continue renovations to GHCC.
Private sponsorship of resi-
dent room remodeling, furnish-
ing etc. would be greatly appre-
ciated as well! In past years the
staff at GHCC raised money for


Hope Hospice works to inform


FORT MYERS Although it
has been a year since the death
of Terri Schiavo, discussion of
this family tragedy continues
nationwide, even worldwide.
The bitter disagreement
between Terri's husband and
her parents over her life support
reached the Governor, Congress,
the Supreme Court, the White
House and the Vatican. At the
heart of the issue: In what doc-
tors called a persistent vegeta-
tive state, Terri was unable to
speak for herself, and she left no
written instructions for her care.
According to Samira K. Beck-
with, President and CEO of
Hope Hospice, "The one good
thing about this is that it has led
families to realize the impor-
tance of being prepared for the
end of life. No one needs to suf-


fer as Terri's family has."
However, a recent national
study reveals that even though
more than 70 percent of Ameri-
cans had given thought to end-
of-life care, only 29 percent have
a living will.
Beckwith says that number
will improve, as indicated by
Hope's steady stream of
requests for information and
materials about preparing for
future health care needs and
wishes. "This advance planning,
also known as 'Advance Direc-
tives' and other terms, refers to
your instructions, both oral and
written, about your medical care
in the event you are unable to
speak for yourself."
In response to the communi-
ty's interest in Advance Direc-
tives, members of Hope's Speak-


ers Bureau make presentations
to groups upon request, to dis-
cuss questions that each person
should ask themselves about
end-of-life care, and to explain
how to prepare the simple docu-
ments. For more information,
call (239) 433-8066.
Hope's Advance Directives
booklet can be accessed at
www.hopehospice.org
http://www.hopehospice.org/.

Advance Directives.
"We know from experience
that peace of mind is essential to
comfort at the end of life," Beck-
with said. "Advance planning
can make a significant differ-
ence in your life and in the lives
of those you love."


other not for profit organizations
- this year the staff decided to
do something for the people
they work with, work for and
love. The staff at GHCC continue
their own fundraising efforts for
their residents. Generosity
begins in the home.
Drew Shimkus, director of
Therapeutic Recreation at Glades
health Care Center went on to
explain that many of the residents
here GHCC would not have any-
where else to go if not for Glades
Health Care Center. The majority
of long-term care residents


would be homeless if not for this
nursing home in the Glades area.
The staff of Glades Health Care
Center loves their residents and
consider them to be members of
their Family.
"The people who live here at
Glades Health Care are our
grandparents, parents, neigh-
bors, teachers, and friends. So
many of our staff members know
the residents they work with from
their own childhoods. We are
proud of the therapeutic relation-
ship our staff members have with
our residents/family members


here at Glades Health Care Cen-
ter," said Mr. Shimkus.
GHCC is located at 230 South
Barfield Highway and has been
providing services to this com-
munity for the better part of 20
years. As a member of the not for
profit organization Okeechobee
Council on Aging, Inc. Glades
Health Care and it's sister facili-
ties in Bradenton and Gainesville
provide much needed medical
services to over 500 Florida resi-
dents yearly.

Monroe Lightsley family really lived on Eagle Bay


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 his-
torian, 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 second printing, "Strolling
down Country Roads in Okee-
chobee."
This week's story comes
from an interview she conduct-
ed with three members of the
Monroe Lightsley family.
The family came to Okee-
chobee around 1919 or 1920
recalled Monroe's wife, Martha
Ann Rebecca Storey Lightsley in
1989. Annie, as she was known
and Monroe came with seven of
the 10 children that eventually
made up the large family.
"We was living on Istopoga
Lake," said Annie. "We lived on
the north end of that. There
weren't roads from there to
here. I guess there might have
been some way of driving down
through in dry weather. But
when we moved here, we
moved in boats down the Isto-
poga and the Istopoga Creek
and canal, where you cross over
now going to Lorida; then on
down the river to Okeechobee."
Monroe bought an 80-acre


Recollections

pioneers and history





tract with a house near present
day SR 78 (which wasn't built
until the 1930s). Annie said that
the house was located on this
side of the Kissimmee River.
"There was a wood house,"
recalled Annie. "My dad bought
the house and land all together
and he paid about $400 for both.
It wasn't a big house. It was
board and batten house. It was
on log blocks until the '28 storm.
They didn't have concrete
blocks then"
"Everyone who lived over
there lived on the ridge of Eagle
Bay. There were times in the fall
in the back when it would over-
flow. The river would overflow
and the water would come up to
the ridge on the back and be
high on the lake side," she said.
Monroe Lightsley tried fishing
to support the family.
"Commercial fishing was the
main thing then,". remembered
Annie, "They fished with fishing
nets then. Most of the fishing
now is trot line."
"I might get to come to town
only every three or four months,


Special to INI/www.tommymarkham.com
During the wet season, the pier at Okeechobee in the 1920s
landed travelers onto a muddy Parrott Avenue as Annie
Lightsley remembered.


she said. "At times you could
drive a house and wagon across
Eagle Bay when the lake was
low. I had an uncle, Mary
Veasey's daddy who pulled a
barge from this end of the ridge
to somewhere around the end of
Parrott Avenue. You could drive
your house and wagon up on
that and come across. It would
take the biggest part of the day
to come to town and go back. It
was a bad road -no pavement,
just a road bed full of ruts. You
could bog down. There is a lot of
mucky land in there and they
didn't have graders to smooth it
down."
"The Eagle Bay schoolhouse
had just a cloth curtain across
the building and they had class-
es on one side and some on the

other," recalled Annie's son
Clarence. "But it was all still in
one room and all that separated
then was the cloth curtain. The
teacher's last name was Moslow
and I really liked her. She was
real pretty."
Annie's daughter,. Jesna
Lightsley McClendon remem-


bered some of her childhood in
the house on Eagle Bay:
"We washed in a washtub
and scrubbed on a washboard,
and we had an old iron pot that
we boiled clothes in. We had a
little stick that we would stick
them and take them up and
rinse them. We made our own
soap and we had Octogon soap
and soap powder. We had wood
floors that we had to scrub with
a scrub brush.
"Momma made our clothes
and her clothes. Momma was a
good seamstress. Like ironing,
we had to heat our iron on a
wood stove. We had to sit the
flat irons on the fireplace to heat
them. When we got soot on the
irons, we'd get soot on our
clothes and we'd have to wash
them over."
When fishing didn't feed the
family, Monroe turned to farm-
ing.
"We farmed some of the
time, and we planted sugar
cane," remembered Annie.
"We'd take a barge and go to


Canal Point. They had a lot of
sugar cane down there and we
loaded that thing down with
sugar cane and different ones (in
Okeechobee) planted it. After
that, the river would overflow.
When there was a lot of rain and
the water would come up and
flood everything and we would
cut the cane from the seine
boats. Sometimes the water
would be up waist deep and
we'd take machete knives and
get overboard and put it on
board and haul it out to the mill.
A little old ditch came up part
way across the ridge and they
had a syrup mill there on the
bank. An old feller by the name
of Pat Cross made the syrup and
they would haul that sugar cane
out by boats."
"Most people back then had
pigs and they would get into the
skimmings off the syrup and get
drunk, she recalled. "I've seen
them get drunk and they would
run around and jump up and
down squealing!"

Make the most of the networking skills


By Debra Fine

Do you dread receptions, ban-
quets, and other business-related
social events? Does attending
another open house make you
want to run inside your own and
lock the door? You're not alone.
Many of us are apprehensive about
these situations, because most of
us either hate entering rooms
\\here \\e don't kno%\ anyone or
hatle spending time th people we
don't kno \ well. KeepiriTWTnver-
sation going during such occasions
is an ordeal.
Everyone learns the technical
skills required for their jobs, but not
everyone places importance on
conversational skills. The ability to
talk easily with anyone is a learned
skill, not a personality trait. Acquir-
ing it will help you develop rapport
with people and leave a positive
impression that lasts longer than an
exchange of business cards.
Here are a few tips business
professionals can use to improve
their small-talk skills:
*Be the first to say hello!
*Introduce yourself. Act as if
you're the host and introduce new


arrivals to your conversational part-
ner or partners.
eSmile first and always shake
hands when you meet anyone.
*Take your time during intro-
ductions! Make an extra effort to
remember names, and use them
frequently in the conversation.
eMaintain eye contact in any
conversation. Many people in a
group of three or more people look
around in the hope that others will
maintain eye contact on our behalf.
But people don't feel listened to if
you're not looking at them.
*Get somebody to talk about
why they're attending the event,
and you are on your way to engag-
ing them in conversation.
eShow an interest in every per-
son. The more interest you show
the wiser and attractive you
become to others.
*Listen carefully for informa-
tion that can keep the conversation
going.
*Remember: People want to
be with people who make them
feel special, not people who are
"special". Take responsibility to
help people you talk to feel as if
they're the only person in the
room.


*Play the conversation game.
When someone asks, "How's busi-
ness?" and
"What's going on?" Answer
with more than "Pretty good" or
"Not much". Tell more about your-
self so that others can learn more
aboutyou.
*Be careful with business
acquaintances. You wouldn't want
to open a conversation with:
"How's your job at ?"
What if that person just got fired or
laid otf? Be careful when you're
asking about an acquaintance's
spouse or special friend; you could
regret it.
*Don't act like you're an FBI
agent. Questions like "What do
you do," "Are you married," "Do
you have children," and "Where
are you from?" lead to dead-end
conversations.
*Be aware of body language.
Nervous or ill-at-ease people make
others uncomfortable. Act confi-
dent and comfortable, even when
you're not.
*Be prepared. Spend a few
minutes before an anticipated
event preparing to talk easily about
three topics. They will come in
handy when you find yourself in


the middle of an awkward
moment... or while seated at a
table of eight where everyone is
playing with their food.
*Show an interest in your con-
versational partner's opinion, too.
You're not the only person who has
opinions about funding the space
program or what will happen to the
stock market.
eStop conversation monopo-
lists in their tracks. If possible, wait
for the person to take a breath or to
pause, then break in with a com-
ment about their topic. Immediate-
ly redirect the conversation in the
direction you wish it to go.
*Be prepared with exit lines.
You need to move around and
meet others.
*Don't melt from conversa-
tions. Make a positive impression
by shaking hands and saying good-
bye as you leave.
With practice, you can learn
how to make the most of meetings,
interviews, and networking events
or of entertaining clients at conven-
tions, trade shows, and other work-
related functions. You'll learn to
appreciate, rather than dread, net-
working events.


SB 2290 will protect


seniors from insurance


TALLAHASSEE Florida sen-
iors who purchase long-term
and home health care insur-
ance now have protection from
sudden rate hikes and arbitrary
claim denials, thanks to a bill
passes unanimously by the
Senate Health Care Committee.
The legislation, SB 2290 by
Sen. Mike Afasano,'- -would
extend nie sarne p. ieciluns 1o0
seniors thbt TorfGallagher,
State Insurance Commissioner,
obtained during the 2003 leg-
islative session for consumers
who purchased health insur-
ance from out-of-state group
insurers. Specifically, the bill
would protect policyholders
from the practice of insurers
that close blocks of coverage to
avoid spreading the risk among
a pool of insured seniors and


yor o muiy iecoy s ut likAwy


then hike rates on the smaller,
block.
"Seniors who responsibly
purchase coverage to prepare
for potential illnesses in future
years should be protected from
exorbitant rate increases and
arbitrary claim denials, espe-
cially at a time when they need
their coverage the most," said
Mr. Gallagher, who successfully
obtained protections-for con-
sumers when purchasing
health insurance during the
2003 legislative session. "I
applaud state lawmakers for
approving this important legis-
lation for Florida seniors and
their families."
SB 2290 now heads to the
Senate General Government

Appropriations Committee. Its
House companion is HB 1349.
