PBSO to take over BGPD


City to decide
chief's fate

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE In response
to public outcry over the police
chief's role in an investigation that
recently went before a Palm Beach
County grand jury, the city of Belle
Glade has approved a motion to
begin negotiations to contract its


law enforcement services to the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office.
If the negotiations are success-
ful, the city's police department,
which has operated in the city for
decades, will be dissolved in favor
of the county agency. -
The commission voted 4-to-1
to assign its law enforcement serv-
ices to the county after a lengthy
discussion at Monday night's
meeting in Belle Glade. A capacity
crowd packed the city hall cham-


bers as the commission deliberat-
ed.
The agreement would com-
plete the county agency's control
of all law enforcement services in
the Glades area. The cities of Paho-
kee and South Bay approved simi-
lar agreements with the county
several months ago and deputies
have begun patrolling the streets in
both cities.
The city of Belle Glade had tra-
ditionally resisted the notion of
contracting with the sheriff's

office, with the chief himself pub-
licly stating his opposition to the
recommendation.
The chief has been the focus of
attacks from residents who say the
department has experienced an
inordinate level of turnover at the
department, is providing poor
services and should be transferred
to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office.
Even as residents came for-
ward with accusations of poor
policing services Shelly Miller,


who would later make a success-
ful bid for city commissioner,
among them the chief defended
himself from accusations that it
was his hard-lined character that
had driven many of the city's long-
term officers out.
Speaking to The Sun earlier this
year, Mr. Dowdell said, "We don't
need the sheriff's office to run our
city. As chief of this police depart-
ment, I knowwe can do it."

Local resort



prepares for



storm season


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza-
The Sun
PAHOKEE Jim Sheehan
doesn't think he'll ever get used
to hurricanes.
The manager of Everglades
Adventures, a resort destinationI
located inside of the Herbert
Hooker Dike in Pahokee,
watches the approach of each
new hurricane season \with
dread.
"I don't know that I will ever
wor r less," he says. .
Jim has reason to feel con-
cerned.
Two years ago, when Hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne rum-
bled toward the area in unstop-
pable treks through the Glades,


he watched his resort business
vanish into thin air, the rem-
nants of it strewn over long
stretches on the levee.
Last year, even as work con-
tinued to rebuild from the preli-
ous year's storms, the business
suffered another crushing blow
when Hurricane Wilma bar-
reled down the way to finish
what the others had started.
The locus on the reconstruc-
tion effort now is in strengthen-
ing the lines of defense at the
resort.
The trouble is: how do you
stop a hurricane?
With only so much that a
business can do to protect itself

Pahokee's new IB program


opens doors for students


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun.
PAHOKEE For Pahokee
Middle/Senior High. Principal
Reed Bain, the school's recent
International Baccalaureate
(IB) certification is an espe-
cially proud achievement.
When he became principal
five years ago, Principal Bain
announced plans to pursue
the IB certification for the
school, an idea, he said, some
scoffed at. Bringing an interna-
tionally renowned program to
an F-school was clearly some-
thing that many doubted
would ever happen.
"There were a lot of naysay-
ers," Principal Bain remem-
bered last week in his office in
Pahokee. "I think we've
changed that notion."
The IB program provides a


more rigorous and demanding
curriculum that is suited for
students willing to put in the
extra work to achieve a special
goal. Covering most -subjects
in a way that encourages stu-
dents to apply both critical and
analytical thinking skills, the
program offers something that
Glades students have never
had.
Throughout the state, less
than 50 schools are IB-certified,
according to the International
Baccalaureate Organization of
Geneva, Switzerland the
Agency that awards the certifi-
cation. In Palm Beach County,
Pahokee Middle/Senior High is
one of only five schools to offer
the diploma program.
Having a well-rounded cur-
riculum with special focus on
understanding subjects on an
international level seems the


most logical step at the begin-
ning of the twenty-first century.
The Internet is intent on
shrinking the world and level-
ing the playing field for talent-
ed, foreign-born individuals
with the desire to succeed.
Many U.S. born students as
famously chronicled in Tom
Friedman's "The World is Flat"
- are faced with competition
the likes of which America had
never before had to contend
with.
"What worries me is that
we're going to fall behind," Mr.
Bain said. "The graduates
India and China are producing
could leave us in the dust."
The IB program, Mr. Bain
said, is just what the school
needs now for its students to

Five Star made good on its
promise to purchase the

Fun in the Sun
Gove Elementary School Principal Turner was gracious
enough to allow her students to splash her with water
during the school's Fun in the Sun Day, held May 31. It
isn't certain, because it was a hot day, who was having
more fun, whether the students, or Principal Turner her-
self. Third through sixth grade students scoring a three
or above in the reading and math portions of the FCAT
were treated to a day of fun in the sun.

CREW volunteers make a difference


CREW, Inc volunteers and staff
worked diligently repairing door-
ways, walls, roofs, ceilings while
the rest of us enjoyed our holiday
weekend. A CREW from a Lake-
land Methodist Church worked in
Ortona, Buckhead Ridge .and
Clewiston all weekend. In addition,
over 80 recliner chairs as well as
other furniture that was donated
made it to homes who had furni-
ture deslro\ ed in Ihe hurricane
Executive Director, Trish
Adams, LCSW stated "I know resi-
dents are anxious to have repairs
done and are worried about
upcoming storms as we prepare
for a new hurricane season" how-
ever she cautions clients to realize


that CREW is a "long term recovery
organization". "It may takes years
to meet the needs of all 611 open
cases with the limited donation,
volunteers and grant money that
CREW currently has. We have suc-
cessfully closed due to completely
meeting hurricane related needs or
successfully referring to other
appropriate' organizations 51
clients since inception in January."
SFirst United Methodist Church
members, the Clewiston Bakery
and Deli and Common Grounds
Coffee Shop all volunteered to
make meals that CREW employ-
ees delivered to the various volun-
teer groups this past weekend.
They have two more CREWs com-


ing in June and possible three in
July. Renee Mergott, Volunteer
Coordinator, relates that "We will
need homes (or places for them to
sleep and shower) and volunteers
to provide meals to the CREWs
coming", Trish Adams adds that
"As always, donation of supplies,
including ladders, tools, drywall,
roofing material, paneling, wood,
screws, paint, etc. are always need-
ed. Good, clean mattresses are also
a welcome and needed donation."
CREW has been building
momentum and with the recent
hiring of Case Management Super-
visor, Akiva Johnsonand Volunteer
Coordinator they have been able to
recruit and organize for volunteers


better. However, come July their
staff will be significantly reduced as
they loose funding for many of
their case managers employed
through a partnership with United
Way and Workforce Development.
They are also hoping to secure
funding for a construction coordi-
nator, who can oversee projects
and complete projects, as well.
Trish Adams encourages "resi-
dents of Hendry and Glades coun-
ties to help by adequately prepar-
ing for the upcoming hurricane
season as well as helping out their
neighbors in the process of recov-
ery."

When it comes to water, it
seems that the first thought is
drainage ditches: dig a ditch,
clean a ditch or culvert, "How
deep will the mud be after all that
rain last night?" But, there is a flip
side. Winter the dry season.
The weather cools, it rarely rains,
as the humidity drops we breathe
a sign of relief. But as more and
more people move to Florida, the
same amount ofwater has further
and further to go around. Every-
body wants water. The further it
has to go, the shallower.it gets but
nothing makes more rain.
South Florida does not have a
continuous source of fresh water
except rain. As more land is built
up, more people move in, more
clothes and dishes to '%ash, to
drive to work on roads, to work in
new offices, shop in stores. Not
only that, but because rain runs
off roofs and pavement. With
fewer places to keep it, more rain
drains into lakes and canals that
lead to the ocean, rather than
soaking back into the ground.
Florida has to plan its water
supply because, unlike some
other areas of the country, South
Florida does not have, for all prac-
tical purposes, a continuous
source of fresh water except the
rain that falls. As more land is built
on, more water is needed
because more rain runs off roofs
and pavement, to canals that lead
to the ocean, rather than soaking
back into the ground. .
Rainfall feeds the aquifers.
(underground water) that supply
close to 90 percent of South and
Central Florida's water and rain
can be scarcest when demand is
highest (because it isn't raining),
then communities have water
restrictions.
But there are areas that share a
water flow from lake to lake or
river to lake, etc., so in the 1970s,
the state set up "districts" where
water flow Is common. These dis-
tricts are called water manage-
ment districts. Water manage-
ment districts decide how much
water to drain off to the ocean
and how much water to save for
later use. There are five such dis-
tricts. Okeechobee County is pri-
marily in the South Florida Water


Management District (SFWMD),
which is divided into four water
supply planning regions: Kissim-
mee Basin, Upper East Coast,
Lower East Coast and Lower
West Coast. Each region's water
supply plan is based on at least
20-year future planning and fol-
lows Subsection 373.0361(1) of
the Florida Statutes.
Keeping clean
water flowing
SFWMD issues permits for pri-
vate, city or county water plants to
pump a certain amount of water
from the ground or lakes to treat
and deliver (for a price), to the
homes and businesses they serve.
(They know how much will be
needed, so they know how much
can be allowed to drain into the
ocean.) The water plants, in turn,.
are overseen by the state's
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP).
The DEP protects the quality of
Florida's drinking water, its rivers,
lakes and wetlands. DEP estab-
lishes the basis: for setting the
standards of purity for the state's
surface water and ground water
and monitors to be sure the quali-
ty stays okay.
DEP also handles the permit
and enforcement programs for
our drinking water, waste water
(sewer), septic tanks, wells and a
myriad of activities in wetlands
and other surface waters. This
agency also provides money to
build or improve domestic waste-
water and drinking water facili-
ties, to reclaim mined lands, and
to implement stormwater man-
agement and manage other
sources of water, like reclaimed
water for irrigation.
SFWMD plans for
Sufficient water
SFWMD is divided into four
major water supply planning
regions Kissimmee Basin (North
and South), Upper EastCoast,
Lower East Coast and Lower
West Coast. Each regional water
supply plan is based on:
1. At least 20-year'futuire plan-
ning and follows Subsection
373.0361 1) of the Florida
Statutes.
2. The impacts of future


demands on the water resources
that we have.
3. Water resource related natu-
ral systems like wetlands.
People in each of the four
regions have a say in SFWMD's
decisions through the Water
resource Advisory Committee
(WRAC) of SFWMD which acts as
liaison between SFWMD. and
people of the district on the sub-
ject of water supply planning.
Since each of the four regions has
its own unique set of issues, the
committee is made up of a very
diverse group of people from
each of the four regions of
SFWMD. Anyone can go to a
WRAC meeting to listen or ask
questions.
Taking a look at each of our
district's four regions, it is easy to
see why they are so different.
Kissimmee
Basin Region,
The Kissimmee Basin (KB),
roughly down along the Kissim-
mee River, was divided into north-
ern and southern areas to focus
on the issues unique to each.
North: Continued use of
ground water to support the large
projected population growth in
Orange and Osceola Counties is
the primary issue.
South: increased surface waler
use in the Lake Istokpoga-lndian
Prairie Basin resulting from pro-
jected increased 'agriculture was
identified as the primary issue of
concern.
Upper East
Coast Area
The Upper East Coast Area
(UEC) includes all of Martin and
St. Lucie counties, and a small'
portion of Okeechobee County.
The predominant land use has
been and will be agriculture. Cit-
rus occupies over four-fifths of the
irrigated agricultural acreage in
the region. Scattered among
these land uses are about 200,000
acres of upland forests and wet-
lands.
The area is projected to have
over a 50 percent increase in pop-
Sulation from 2000 levels to almost
a half a million people. Agricul-
ture primarily citrus in the
western portion of the region is.


projected to decrease slightly due
to current industry markets, and
pressure from developers, but in
addition to people's needs, there
are many coastal and inland en\i-
ronmental areas in this region
that depend on water to exist.

Lower West
Coast Area
The Lo\~er \\est Coast Plan-
ning Region is expected 10 have
an increased population of
almost 70 percent from 1995 le-I
els by 2020. with most growth in
the coastal areas This means
increased dernands for drinking
and irrigation water.
Likewise, agriculture primari-
Il citrus and sugarcane in the
eastern portion of the region is
projected to inlicease b\ 10 per-
cent. In addition, there are many
coastal and inland em ironrnental
resources within n this area. Meet-
ing people's water needs and the
water needs of the environment
makes development of water sup-
ply strategies absolutely neces-
sary to the economic and envi-
ronmental sustainability of the
area.

Lower East Coast
The Lower East Coast region
includes all of ,Palm: Beach,
Broward and Miami-Dade Coun-
ties, the Florida Keys, plus por-
tions of seven other counties
around Lake Okeechobee and
along the Caloosahatchee River.
Its population expected to
grow significantly between now
and 2020, increasing by almost 58
percent from 1995. Most of this
increase in population will occur
in the coastal area, which is pro-
jected to have almost seven mil-
lion residents in 2020.
The region also includes more
than one-hall million ,acres of
profitable agriculture and World-
renowned ecosystems such as
.The Everglades, Lake Okee-
chobee, Florida Bay and Biscayne
Bay.

Parents can combat childhood obesity


Childhood obesity is a growing
problem, and not limited to the
United States.
Recent studies in the United
Kingdom found a disturbing
increase in the number of children
now considered "obese." They the-
orize that the increase in Type 2
Diabetes (once called "adult onset
Diabetes") is directly connected to
the problem of childhood obesity.
A recent study conducted in the
UK found obesity there was not
linked to a change in diet. An
increase in fast food consumption
was not to blame for the growing
waistlines of children there.
Instead, they linked the weight
gains to a decrease in physical
activity. While the average child
was consuming the same number
of calories as previous generations,
fewer calories are being burned.
Sedentary activities such as
watching television and playing
computer games are taking up
time that was once spent playing
sports. This decrease in physical
activity, without a decrease in calo-


A

Life


with Katrina Elsken

ries consumed, results in weight
gain.
The Mayo Clinic offers the fol-
lowing tips for parents who are
concerned about childhood obesi-
ty:
Don't single out the over-
weight members of your family for
lifestyle changes. Eating healthier
foods and getting more exercise is
good for everybody. Children tend
to mimic their parents, so it pays to
be a good role model. If you don't
want your children eating french
fries, don't eat them yourself. Play
basketball with the kids after din-
ner, or take a family walk. Organize


family outings that involve physical
activity such as bike riding, skat-
ing or hiking.
Parents are the ones who buy
the food, cook the food and decide
where food is eaten. Even small
changes can make a big difference
in your family's overall health.
When buying groceries,
choose fruits and vegetables over
convenience foods high in sugar
and fat. Always have healthy
snacks available. And never use
food as a reward or punishment.
Limit sweetened beverages,
including those containing fruit
juice. These drinks provide little
nutrition in exchange for their high
calories. They also can make your
child feel too full to eat healthier
foods.
Select recipes and methods of
cooking that are lower in fat. For
example, bake chicken instead of
frying it.
e Put colorful food on the table:
green and yellow vegetables, fruits
of various colors, and brown
(whole-grain) breads. Limit white


carbohydrates: rice, pasta,
bleached bread and sugar
(desserts).
Sit down together for family
meals. Make it an event a time to
share news and tell stories. Eating
in front of the television fosters
mindless munching.
Limit your children's recre-
ational screen time to fewer than
two hours a day.
During your child's physical
exams, ask the doctor to show you
the growth curves giving per-
centiles for height, weight, and
body mass index (BMI). These
allow you to compare your child
with the norms for age and sex.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some pre-
scription drugs may interact badly
with foods that might otherwise be
considered "healthy."


Remember to stop and smell the roses


All around us there are things
we miss because we are running
around and do not take the time
to stop and smell the roses.
We live in such a frantically
paced world! The world is not
frantic; we are! We are the ones
who choose to run around at the
fast pace. Do we think we are
ever going to make up for lost
time? The world keeps turning at
the same speed. We all have the
same twenty-four hours in a day
and it is how we choose to use
those hours that causes us to be
so busy that we don't take time
for the simple things in life like
smelling the roses.
You are so busy that you
don't even notice the roses
along your path; much less think
about smelling them. We are
oblivious to the things going on
around us because our mind is
reacting to yet another mess we
have gotten ourselves into
because we don't know how to
stop procrastinating.
We have two speeds; full out

pedal-to-the-metal or slamming
on the brakes! Have you ever rid-
den with someone who drives
like this? Just the thought of this
makes me sick! Why do we treat
ourselves like this with jack-rab-
bit starts and screeching stops.
We deserve better!
The stops don't happen
often; they only occur after we
have crashed and burned. We
don't know how to take it slow
and steady. All we think is if we
just keep going as fast as we can
we can accomplish all we have
to in one day. But we can stop
living like this.


We are not more effective
under stress. That is a lie we tell
ourselves because we do not
know how to stop unless we are
forced to. I think we have to look
at the reasons we are rushing
around to be able to stop and
rest. Procrastination is vicious
monster that causes us to peddle
faster and faster. We put off
doing something till it is scream-
ing at us.
We know how it is; we put off
filling our car up with gas and
now we are in a hurry to pick up
our child at school and just had
to do one more thing before we
walked out the door. That is per-
fectionism and procrastination
giving us the one two punch! No
wonder we don't have time to
stop and smell the roses; we are
too busy putting out fires!
Do you hear these words
come out of your mouth many
times a day; I don't have time,
I'm late? This is an important
clue!.Next time those words soil
your lips; I want you to think


about why you are in this pickle!
I promise you, it is because you
put off doing something or you
allowed your perfectionism to
take over.
You don't have to live this
way another day! You have a
choice and if you choose the "do
it now" principle, you may find
that there are enough hours in a,,
day and you do have time to stop
and smell the roses!
Life is filled with choices and
you get to make them. Do it now
or procrastinate; you pick!
Which one allows you the
opportunity to stop and smell
the roses?

Substitutes may be made for booze in recipes


One of the recipes I offer in
my online menu service is a
recipe called Beer Braised Pork
Chops (you can try a sample
Menu-Mailer yourself; just go to
www.savingdinner.com). This is
what I call a Recipe Rave a
recipe so good, it elicits a lot of
emails! On occasion, I will
showcase a Recipe Rave in my
online Food for Thoughts col-
umn.
Well, one day I had a com-
ment from a reader who
explained she doesn't use alco-
hol ever and would love to try
that particular Recipe Rave.
What alternatives were there for
her when recipes that look so
good call for some sort of alco-
hol?
Good question. I wasn't
pleased with what I saw as a list
of substitutions because I felt the
substitute lacked oomph, so I
experimented a little and came
up with some ideas for substitu-
tions for recipes calling for alco-
hol. Here is a list of my own sub-
stitutions that will work with just
about any recipe calling for
wine, beer or spirits:
Beer: equal parts.chicken or
vegetable broth and ginger ale
with a splash of malt vinegar.
White Wine: equal parts


T The Dinner
f- Diva



Leanne
Ely


chicken or vegetable broth and
white grape juice with a splash
of cider or balsamic vinegar.
Red Wine: equal parts chick-
en or vegetable broth and red
grape juice with a splash of red
wine or balsamic vinegar.
Sherry: same as either wine
substitute.
Spirits, such a vodka, scotch,
whiskey, etc. (I won't give you
recipes with anything like this,
but here's the substitute) chick-
en broth or vegetable broth. If
the whole flavor of the recipe is
central to the spirit being used, I
would skip the recipe. Other-
wise, this simple substitute will
work.
What I found in my experi-
mentation with substitutions is
that straight juice is too cloying,
chicken broth can be too heavy
and just adding plain water


doesn't give the recipe the depth
and flavor you're trying to create
by adding wine in the first place.
So if you're going to get rid of the
wine (or other spirit), you're
going to need a substitute that
will give you those things. That's
why adding that splash of vine-
gar seems to do the trick and
adds that extra something tradi-
tional substitutions lack. You'll
see this for yourself when you
try them.
Hope that helps you with
your cooking dilemmas. And for
those of you who are curious
(and, hungry for) the Beer.
Braised Pork Chops, here's the
recipe:
Beer-Braised Pork Chops

Check out moving


companies
TALLAHASSEE Now that
school is out in Florida, the
prime season for moving has
begun, and a little care can go a
long way in making a move go
smoothly, according to Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson.
"Putting your treasured fami-
ly belongings in the care of a
moving company can be a diffi-
cult and expensive task," Bron-
son said. "But by getting a few
estimates, checking out the
companies and understanding
your rights in the transaction,
the odds that you'll have a trou-
ble-free move increase signifi-
.cantly."
Under state law, all intrastate
moving companies must be reg-
istered with Bronson's Division
of Consumer Services. Con-
sumers are encouraged to call
the toll-free hotline at 1-800-
HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352) to
check the registration and com-
plaint histories of the company
or companies being considered.
Interstate moves those
involving moves from Florida to
another state, or from another
state to Florida'- are exempt


in advance

from state law and are overseen
by the U.S. Department of Trans-
portation's Federal' Motor Carrier
Safety Administration, which
can be reached at 1-888-368-
7238.
Among safeguards embodied
in the law governing intrastate
moves are:
All such movers must be
registered.
Companies are required to
carry a minimum of $10,000 in
insurance to cover any damage
to the furniture and other fami-
lies' belongings that they are
hauling.
Moving companies are
required to provide a written
estimate of the total cost of the
move before a contract with the
consumer is signed, and it is a
third-degree felony for compa-
nies to withhold a consumer's
household goods provided that
the price called for in the esti-
mate is paid.
Additional information on
intrastate moving can be
accessed on the Division of Con-
sumer Services web site at
http://www.800helpfla.com.

School Happenings


PBC Center offers course on divorce


WEST PALM BEACH It is
now universally recognized that
divorce is an epidemic and the
numbers do not seem to be
changing any time soon. Accord-
ing to one study, children of
divorce are 50 percent more likely
than their counterparts from intact
families to divorce. Half of all chil-
dren will witness the breakup of a
parent's marriage and many of
those children will report great
suffering because of this. The
courts are now recognizing this
fact locally in Palm Beach County
and are implementing a mandato-
ry TRANSPARENTING course for
divorcing families. The program,
offered once monthly at organiza-
tions such as The Center for Fami-


ly Services (CFS), emphasizes
each parent's responsibility to pro-
vide a nurturing, non-threatening
environment for the child.
TRANSPARENTING is a nation-
ally renowned four hour educa-
tional parenting course developed
by 'Families First' to minimize the
negative effects of divorce and to
meet the requirements of the fam-
ily courts for education of divorc-
ing parents. The class is taught by
licensed professionals who have
experience with children and who
have been specially trained to
teach. The TRANSPARENTING
educational class is designed to
teach effective parenting during
the transition of divorce or
parental separation. It impresses


upon parents the critical role they
play in their child's ability to adjust
to changes surrounding divorce.
The judges in Palm Beach
County require all parents in cases
of divorce, visitation, change of
custody, and/or other domestic
relations actions to complete this
program. "It is in the best interest
of children that parents take the
time to see divorce and family
change through their children's
eyes," CFS Director of Individual
and Family Counseling, Kaisha
Thomas. "During the transition of
divorce and/or parental separa-
tion is challenging and this class
discusses how to help children
through this difficult time."
The Center for Family Services


of Palm Beach County, Inc. is a
not-for-profit organization whose
mission is to promote the emo-
tional well-being of families and
children regardless of their ability
to pay. The agency provides a full
spectrum of services to homeless
families, individuals recovering
from an addiction, abused chil-
dren, victims of domestic violence
and families at risk, as well as indi-
vidual, couples and families coun-
seling. The Center operates the
largest HIPPY (Home Instruction
for Parents of Preschool Young-
sters) program in the state. For
more information, please contact
The Center for Family Services at
(561)616-1222.


Submitted to The Sun
School's out for the summer and these Lakeside Academy
students are getting a head start on the fun days to come.


Lakeside Academy
Class of 2006 moves on
It was both a happy and sad
occasion as our 6th graders move
on to Middle School.
Happy because this was a high
scoring class, sad because all of
them have been at Lakeside
Academy from Kindergarten and
were such a wonderful part of the
school's fabric. We wish them all
the very best in their next phase of
learning.
Graduation Day activities
included a Pot Luck Dinner
"catered" by Lakeside Academy
parents, followed by the Awards
Ceremony and distribution of
prizes for scholastic achievement.
The festivities kicked into high
gear with the Graduation Party
and Big Picture Show. Music was
provided by a DJ, and enhanced
Sby a club-style Light Show.
Thanks must go to all parents
who brought their favorite dishes
for the Pot Luck Dinner, the teach-


ers and volunteers on the Decora-
tion Committee who made the
Hall and the Pavilion look so
beautiful, and especially to Mrs.
Barbara Litinski, Lakeside Acade-
my principal, without whose ded-
ication to the school and the
Glades community over the last
seven years, none of this would
have been possible.
School registration
for 2006-2007
Lakeside Academy is presently
accepting student registrations for
the coming school year on a first-
come, first-served basis. Class-
room assignments are being filled
quickly, so please come and regis-
ter your child in person at the
school office located at 716 S.
Main St. in Belle Glade or call 993-
5000 for additional information.
Lakeside Academy is a free,
public Charter School open to all
students from Belle Glade, Paho-
kee, and South Bay.


School board adopts inclusive policy


WEST PALM BEACH Over
the years, the inclusion of the clas-
sification "sexual orientation" has
prevented the Palm Beach County
School Board from adopting any
anti-discrimination policy by a
unanimous vote. (The vote was 5-
0. School Board Member Dr. Sandi
Richmond did not attend the meet-
ing. School Board Member Mark
Hansen left the room prior to the
vote).
That trend ended when School
Board adopted a comprehensive
Commercial Nondiscrimination
Policy which specifically prohibits
the School Board from accepting
bids or proposals from, or engag-
ing business with, "any business
firm that has discriminated on the
basis of race, gender, religion,
national origin, ethnicity, sexual
orientation, age, disability, or any
other form of unlawful discrimina-
tion in its solicitation, selection, hir-
ing, or treatment of another busi-
ness."


"Even with the two members not participating, the
Palm Beach County School Board has, for the first
time, spoken with one voice, assuring the public
that discrimination including discrimination
against gay men and lesbians is unacceptable."
Rand Hoch,
founder of the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council


Policy 6.144 on "Commercial
Nondiscrimination" also requires
all contracts to contain the follow-
ing language: "Contractor shall not
discriminate on the basis of race,
gender, religion, national origin,
ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or
disability in the solicitation, selec-
tion, hiring or treatment of subcon-
tractors, vendors, suppliers, or
commercial customers."
"Even with the two members
not participating, the Palm Beach
County School Board has, for the
first time, spoken with one voice,


School News In Brief


assuring the public that discrimina-
tion including discrimination
against gay men and lesbians is
unacceptable," said Rand Hoch,


founder of the Palm Beach County
Human Rights Council."
The Palm Beach County
Human Rights Council, a non-prof-
it organization dedicated to ending
discrimination based on sexual ori-
entation, gender identity and gen-
der expression, The Council pro-
motes equality through education,
advocacy, direct action, impact liti-
gation, and community outreach.
Earlier this month, the Council
had contacted all seven School
Board members, urging them to
vote in favor of the inclusive
nondiscrimination policy.

The 411 on Super Heroes and Sidekicks l


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Every Batman needs a Robin.
Some go it alone, but the reality is
that super heroes are more super
when they have someone working
behind the scenes and out of the
lime-light to help them save the day.
Last year, Disney released a
movie called Sky High. Sky High is
a special high school campus that
floats above the clouds built for the
children of super heroes. Some-
times the children of superheroes
have super powers and sometimes
they don't. When freshmen arrive
at Sky High, they are.sorted into
two tracks: Those with recognized
super powers take hero classes,
and those who don't have such
super powers take sidekick classes.
The purpose of the super heroes
and the sidekicks is to serve and
save the citizens from danger and
villainous acts. Some of those with
super powers take sidekicks for
granted. One of the lessons in the
movie is that the works and gifts of


the sidekicks, though often over-
looked and minimized, often pro-
vide the foundation needed in
order to accomplish what must be
done to save the day.
In the movie, the main players
are super heroes, sidekicks, and cit-
izens.
Some people in the church get
the idea that these same categories
also relate to the kinds of Christians
we have. We have heroes of the
Bible and church history. The
preachers who haven't reached
hero status yet, along with the
devoted lay people who do most of
the work, are sidekicks. The citi-
zens are the bystanders who come
and worship when they can.
I would caution everyone not to
fall into the trap of believing that
pastors are called to be disciples on
behalf of the citizens. Seminary is
not Sky.High where those called go
to learn super hero stuff. God calls
some of us to ordination, but God
calls ALL of us to discipleship.
The truth is there is only one
superhero Jesus. Most of us get


that idea.
But the truth also is that we are
not called to be citizens. We are
called to be sidekicks. God calls all
of us to work closely with Him for
His purposes. We are sidekicks
called to ministry, to a purpose big-
ger than ourselves, bigger than our
families, bigger than our dreams.
And similar to the movie, it's the
efforts of the sidekicks (the back-
ground people) that help make the
hero shine and the day happen.
Some of the disciples wanted
Jesus to be a superhero who would
stay forever, reigning in might and
splendor. Instead, God worked the
miracle of resurrection and Pente-
cost and left the church in charge.
That's us!
God is the hero, hard at work in
the person of Christ and the power
of the Holy Spirit. All of God's peo-
ple are called to be the sidekicks,
called to give of themselves so that
the hero can save the day.
Not only that, we are the heirs of
the sidekicks of previous genera-
tions. We have been blessed by the


stories of their faithfulness, the
communities they formed, the
churches they built, and the mis-
sions and ministries they began.
We continue the work they started.
This ministry changes and
evolves. Sometimes it grows, some-
times it disappears. But it is always
replaced with a new ministry for a
new day. We are the sidekicks who
work with the Hero to build the
kingdom of God in our day.
Together we are called to dream
big dreams for the future of God's
church as we tell the story to new
generations. We must tell the good
news to our children.
We must reach our youth. We
must seek out the stranger in our
midst, the newcomer, the immi-
grant; and welcome them. We
must bring healing to the broken,
food to the hungry, and release to
the imprisoned. God needs side-
kicks in this day, in this place, to
continue to build the foundation
needed in order to accomplish
what must be done. That's us!


Telling the truth; to censor or not to censor


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I served as a part of a committee
for a student's doctoral dissertation.
She had chosen to study a group of
people in hopes of helping them
but part of her study revealed nega-
tive things. She asked her commit-
tee if she should tell them. I was a
bit surprised by her question. She
had done an honest piece of work
and those she studied knew about
it. What she found was done in
hopes of helping someone but it
didn't seem to come out that way. I
told her that the people studied had
a right to know; for better or for
worse.
I hear of studies persons and
companies in medically-related
fields that concealed harmful parts
of their research. Withholding the
truth is wrong when it affects per-
sons and is doubly wrong when it
is self-serving or has selfish inter-
ests for withholding it.


There is a difference between
censorship to protect youngsters
and censorship to manipulate peo-
ple or push one's own interest.
There is something about human
nature that makes us want to know
and people get (rightfully) angry
when something is withheld that
keeps them from making the best
decisions for themselves.
I grew up with little in the way of
censorship, but was challenged to
think about what I read or saw.
Against a background of values,
and, learning to think for myself, lit-
tle was forbidden or censored. One
summer, someone gave us a
bushel basket full of paperback
books. There were westerns, nov-
els, mysteries, history books, fic-
tion, and an old copy of Emile
Zola's Nana. This original version
had no racy descriptions or inti-
mate details spelled out. It was,
though, a story of how human
weakness and manipulation of
people brought the downfall of
people who let their emotions


overrule their reason. Later, when
an avant-garde movie came out
(tame by today's standards; risqu6
in its day) everyone worried about
who should or should not see it. I
saw it with a family member and
quickly realized the story had no
real plot; shallow characters parad-
ing through each other's lives and
nothing to offer. We need to be
given values in order for us to be
able to make decisions our own
best decisions.
What seems to be passed off as
"entertainment" is best censored by
people who see it for what it is and
who let others know that there is
really nothing there to see. We don't
teach values to give people their
own measuring-sticks for what is
worthwhile and what is not; relying
on imposing censorship and trying
to keep people from finding out
what they should be able to accept
or reject on their own.
Jesus spoke about telling the
truth; all of it. He was challenged
one day by a group of Pharisees


and He told them what He had
heard that came from God. They
didn't seem to understand. He
exhorted them to hold to God's
teaching saying "Then you will
know the truth and the truth will set
you free (John 8:32)." You learn the
truth by searching and testing;
preferably on your own, and when
that is not possible, by using trusted
sources. When people honestly
search, they will be rewarded; truth
will indeed set us free to know
what to believe and do and how to
act. When truth is withheld, people
play "God" and pretend to know
better. That's not our place; we
help others become themselves
when we help them find out about
what affects them and how they
should decide or act.
The truth, no matter how
unpleasant, disliked, uncomfort-
able it may be, let us better become
what God intended us to be and
ultimately sets us free to be that
person. It will finally make us a lot
happier too.

Pioneer Park Elementary


celebrates school reading carnival


The Pioneer Park "Reading Car-
nival" will be held next Friday, May
26 as an all day celebration. It cele-
brates that Pioneer Park students'
reading levels continue to improve
and all of their hard work is paying
off! The Carnival also promotes the
love of literacy and the importance
of summer reading.
Glori Mulligan, a local author
from South Florida, will share her
book A Dragon's Tail with all stu-
dents. From 8:20 a.m. all class-
rooms will rotate throughout the
day to listen to the author and have
a Q & A session about her profes-
sion as a writer. A Dragon's Tail, is a
story of two small green dragons
who hold the happiness of the
world in their tails. They are
Siamese Twin dragons, joined at
the tail, separated at birth, and
taken away to locations very distant
from each other. Vortex must find
his brother, Cyclone, and they must
be reunited to prevent a generation
of huge evil dragons from taking
over the rule of Dragonland.

whom had been involved with
the project from the time that
the plan was initially proposed.
Since then, the project has been
plagued by numerous setbacks
that continued to push back the
start of construction at the prop-
erty.
The City of Belle Glade
worked with the county to
demolish the building at the site
to help developers move on the
construction work quickly, but
stalls in the discussion between
the city and the developer at
times left the city wondering if
the project would ever see the
light of day.

The school will provide several
books to each child for them to
take home this summer and read.
This will also be a kickoff for the
school's take home reading pro-
gram that will continue throughout
the summer and next school year.
Students are being treated with
shows from Page Turner Adven-
tures, classroom visits by story
book characters: Clifford, Cinderel-
la, Belle, Shrek, Cat in the Hat,
Princess Fiona, Spiderman, Mickey
Mouse, Jasmine, and a few other
surprise appearances.
The Carnival will take place on
Friday, May 26 from 8 a.m. until 2
p.m. Pioneer Park is located at
39500 Pioneer Park Road, Belle
Glade. The school's telephone
number is (561) 993-4480.

room reading activities and outside
fun including: bounce house,

The developer, which
assumed several names
throughout its negotiations with
the city, missed the closing date
on the property several times
before the city brought the issue
up at a meeting earlier this year.
The city was prepared to move
on.
Representatives with the
group, now under the name Five
Star, asked the commission to
consider their proposal to pur-
chase the property one final
time before leaders decided to
move forward with another
developer.
As a condition to giving the
group an extension on the clos-
ing date, the city commission
agreed to raise.the price of the
sale by $20,000 to offset the
delays.


special aptitude toward the arts,

ly in his future.
Perhaps one of the greatest
benefits to students is how high-
ly regarded an IB diploma is at
most universities, according to
Mr. Bain. Participating in the pro-
gram guarantees that students
entering college will most likely
have extra credits applied to
their education even before set-
ting a foot in school.

receive their present, a bag of
books to take home! The day will
end with D.E.A.R. (Drop Every-
thing and Read) time while the stu-
dents read their new books.
This event is a community effort
and would not have been possible
without all of the donations
received. Pioneer Park Elementary
wishes to express their gratitude to
various generous donors such as
Renai Collins, Barnes & Noble, Staff
and students of Coral Reef Elemen-
tary School and Banyan Creek Ele-
mentary School, Palms Isles
Women's Club, Lisa Molbogot,
Southern Costumers, author Glori
Mulligan, Bank Atlantic, and the
Pioneer Park Family!
For more information, please
contact the coordinators of the
event: Assistant Principal, Debbie
Battles (561) 993-4484, Reading
Coaches Kelly Sullivan and Chris
Boldin (561) 993-4480, and busi-
ness partner Renai Collins from
Barnes & Noble (561) 374-5570.


The developer was given a
strict timetable to finish the clos-
ing. According to Mr. Tate, they
made good on their agreement
and are now the owners of the
property on Main Street.
"We're happy to we've been
able to sell the property," said
Mr. Tate. "The city lost no
momentum," he continued,
pointing to the increase in the
cost of the property.
When completed, officials
hope that the hotel will provide a
shot in the arm to the area's
economy. With their eyes
focused squarely on economic
development through eco-
tourism, city officials said the
hotel can be the catalyst to
bringing more dollars into the
city.


"Our kids will be able to get
in the best universities in the
world," said Principal Bain.
While regarded by some as
being elitist, the IB program
rewards hard work over sheer
intelligence, the principal said.
There are now talks at the
school board about pursuing the
IB program for Pahokee Elemen-
tary. If successful, the full IB pro-
gram, from the Primary Years
program offered in the elemen-
tary school, to the Middle Years
and Diploma programs at the
middle school and high school,
respectively, would be available
to students.
According to the principal,
the middle school's IB program,
in operation for several years
now, has produced notable
gains in the school's overall
score. The school improved its
score years ago to a "D" to, cur-
rently, a "C." Before that, Paho-
kee's middle school posted
among the lowest scores in the
county.
The gains are demonstrative
of the type of work that the
school is putting into its new
programs and, Mr. Bain hopes,
an indication of the improve-
ments yet to be made if students
simply choose to work hard.
"Our goal is to have every kid
touched by IB," Mr. Bain said.

Still, residents continued to
complain at public functions.
According to City Manager
Houston Tate, the county had sev-
eral months ago offered to extend
its coverage area to encompass the
entire city, making an official pres-
entation on the benefits of making
the switch. City leaders then decid-
ed against going forward with the
county's suggestion.
"The county told us, 'When
you're ready to have those discus-
sions, let us know,'" said Mr. Tate.
On Monday, it seemed that the
time had come.
"The city needs that immediate
elimination of what is now per-
ceived to be improvements that are
needed," the manager said.
A special meeting of the com-
mission will take place today to
continue discussion of the motion
to begin negotiations with the sher-
iff's office.
Even as those negotiations go
forward, the city of Belle Glade is
expected to make a final determi-
nation on the fate of its police chief,
Albert Dowdell, in a matter of
weeks. Mr. Dowdell will know, at a
hearing to be held later this month,
if he will be terminated or allowed
to continue to serve in the role of
the city's top cop.
Theoretically, if the city
approves all negotiations with the
sheriff's office, Mr. Dowdell could
stay on as a lieutenant and liaison
for the county agency- the role that
other chiefs of police in the general
area have assumed after their
departments were turned over to
the sheriff's office.
Mr. Tate provided the chief with
a letter for a pre-termination meet-
ing after a grand jury sharply criti-
cized the department in its investi-
gation of a shooting at a club last
year.
Mr. Dowdell has been the sub-


Marina

Continued From Page 1
from a natural disaster such as a
hurricane, resort managers are
busy searching for ways to mini-
mize the damage likely to occur
during a storm event.
Resort managers and city offi-
cials are partnering to find ways to
protect one of their biggest invest-
ments and are reaching out to
government agencies that may be
able to help.
"It's the first time we got every-
body on the same page, the coun-
ty, the city, the next step is the
state," said Mr. Sheehan.
All parties are hopeful that
something can be done quickly to
help the resort finally get to its feet
again. The effort from this point
forward \will be on locating fund-
ing sources to pay for the
improvements.
Everglades Adventures has
partnered with the city to reach
out to governmental agencies for
grants and has been successful in
finding dollars for the project.
A breakwater is one of the new
additions that the resort manage-
ment is planning to implement to
shelter the site from the violent


ject of much speculation after the
grand jury's report was released a
week ago, which heavily criticized
the police department for failing to
carry through with a proper investi-
gation into the shooting last year.
The report depicts an unflatter-
ing picture of the police depart-
ment, and chastises the officers
tasked with covering the case for
mistakes made at the scene of the
crime and for failing to conduct a
thorough investigation.
On Oct. 7 of last year, Derrick
Bryant was shot in the parking lot
of Club 21, a local weekend hang-
out spot. The report references the
event.
Officer Leo Davis, his sergeant,
.Jeffers Walker, and the chief were
singled out in the report. The offi-
cers, the report reads, put inaccu-
rate information on the report and
failed to interview witnesses at the
scene of the crime, among other
.charges.
The grand jury ultimately said
the mistakes warranted criminal
charges be considered against the
chief of police. The next grand jury
is expected to act on determining
additional charges that may
include perjury, misuse of public
power and corruption, and crimi-
nal contempt.
The investigation resulted after
visiting law enforcement officials
from High Springs and Gainesville,
in town last year offering their help
in the post-hurricane recovery
efforts, expressed concern at how
the police department was being
managed. They initiated the investi-
gation.
In the wake of the report, Mr.
Dowdell was placed on administra-
tive leave of absence with pay by
City Manager Tate, pending the pre-
termination hearing.
"I asked him if he had ques-
tions," the manager remembered.
"He said he did not."
According to Mr. Tate, the
--report's subject matter was serious
enough to warrant the city's atten-


effects of wild waves stirred by the
winds during a storm.
Representatives with the resort
say all work to put the marina
back, is on hold until a breakwater
is installed.
An additional measure to less-
ening the severity of a storm is the
idea of locating barrier islands,
comprised of dredged material,
just off the resort area. The islands,
a part of the city's ten-year-old
master plan, would add an ameni-
ty that could attract visitors to the
area, complement the recreation-
al attractions offered by the resort
and provide an additional layer of
protection to guard the dike and
the resort,
Last week the commission met
for special meeting strictly on the
marina. The commission agreed
to begin work on helping Ever-
glades Adventures, with the direct
involvement of the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers for possible
funding for the barrier islands
..project.
According to City Manager Lil-
lie Latimore, the Corps has
expressed an interest in the barrier
islands, noting that their location
at the marina can provide better
protection for the dike.
In the meantime, Jim, like

tion.
The hearing, which should have
been held today, was postponed to
June 26 after Mr. Dowdell's new
legal representation asked for time
to review the case and prepare for
the meeting.
It will be at Mr. Tate's sole discre-
tion whether or not to move for-
ward with the termination. Mr. Tate
said he will listen to Mr. Dowdell's
attorney before making a final
determination.
With the power to hire and fire
assigned to the manager, the city
commission is unable to vote on
the issue.
"The grand jury is just one
view," said Mr. Tate. "We have to
hear the side of the chief."
Mr. Tate maintains that Mr.
Dowdell has done a good job as
chief.
"He has done very good work
for the city," he said earlier this
week. Still, he said referencing the
report, the city, "Had to take the
position that this was a serious doc-
ument."
Earlier this year, Mr. Dowdell
fought back criticisms of his depart-
ment after several known drug
users broke into the evidence room
of the former police department
building. The robbers took guns
from the evidence room, money
and other items, and sold them on
the streets for cash.
Nobody was assigned to check
the building and no cameras or
alarms were installed to notify
police if someone broke in. The
robberies spanned several weeks,
according to officials with the
police department.
Calipto Gonzalez, who heads
the department's detective division,
has been named interim chief after
Mr. Dowdell's suspension. It is the
second time in Mr. Gonzalez's
career that he is named the interim
chief. Mr. Gonzalez served as the
interim chief after a similar scandal
forced Pahokee's chief of police
out of his position.


many others around the lake, con-
tinues to monitor the hurricane
situation. Being hit as hard as the
resort has been in the last few
years is an event that he does not
want to see repeated.
He remembers when the
resort was hit by the two hurri-
canes in quick succession several
years back. Even while Wilma
caused: more damage, Frances
and Jeanne battered the business
more than Mr. Sheehan estimated
itwould.
"It's the double whammy, you
cannot compare to that," said Jim.
If there is any consolation to his
worries, it is that the Army Corps
of Engineers is working .to lower
the lake levels going into the hurri-
cane season in response to con-
cerns about the safety of the dike.
If the lake is low enough, Jim
said, the chances of another catas-
trophe are greatly decreased.
"Once the lake level rises to 15
feet, all bets are off," he said.
With everything resting on the
resort business, he wishes for a
calm season this year.
Still, he chooses not to lie to
himself.
"I'm not hoping for one, but
I'm preparing for one," Jim said.

Are you ready



for hurricanes?


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
Hurricane season, as all Florid-
ians know, runs from June 1 until
Nov. 30 of each year. With the
2006 hurricane season here, now
is the time to prepare your home
for the possibility of a hurricane
strike.
The following is a partial
check list in preparing your home
to withstand a hurricane. The
National Weather Service has
compiled a list of things to do to
prepare your home for hurricane
season.
Outside of your
home:
Cut back tree limbs that
hang over your house. Trees pro-
vide shade and help keep your
home cool, but those same tree
limbs can come crashing through
your roof and windows.
Put all loose items such as
lawn furniture, barbecue grills,
potted or handing plants, garbage
cans, etc. inside your house,
garage or tool shed. High winds
can blow these type of items
around like guided missiles.
Make sure your tool shed is
properly anchored down. If high
winds break up your shed, every-
thing inside of it becomes a
potential threat to property and

Window protection:
Windows must be protected
against wind and flying debris.
Once a window is broken, hurri-
cane winds can not only destroy
the room the window is in, but it
can tear the roof right off your
home. There are many ways to
protect your windows including
roll-down storm shutters, storm
panels or plywood. Duct tape
offers absolutely no protection
against the high winds of a hurri-
cane. Do not waste your time or
money taping up windows.
Plywood is the least expen-
sive way to protect your win-
dows, and the thicker plywood
the better the protection. The
major disadvantages to using ply-
wood are the time and hard work
it takes to put it up.
Storm panels are usually.
made of steel or aluminum. They
attach to the walls around win-
dows and doors. They usually
slide into place on tracks that are
permanently installed 'around
each window or door. Installation
is supposed to be a lot faster than

plywood because you simply
slide the panels onto the track
and secure them, but as you
know, we've all gotten to be
experts at quickly putting up ply-
wood sheets.
Roll-down shutters attach
above the windows and doors.
They roll up and store in a box
when not in use. You can quickly
lower and secure them. Experts
consider these the best way to
protect your home and the easi-
est to use, but they are also the
most expensive to have installed.
Double doors and garage
doors: Make sure your double
front doors secure properly. The
total wind pressure on a door is
centered on the lock and latch.
Most doors should be strength-
ened by latch systems or addition-
al surface mounted slide bolts to
distribute wind's pressure. If slide
bolts cannot be used, 2 x 4s bolt-
ed across the inside and outside
of the door are an effective alter-
native. Storm panels and roll-
down shutters can also be used to
protect these doors.
If your home was built before
1993, the standard garage door is
only wind-rated to 50 mph. New
garage doors with steel bracing
can withstand winds up to 150
mph.
If you do have an older garage
door, bracing kits are available at
hardware and home improve-
ment centers. You may also
attach wooden 2 x 6 stiffeners
approximately 18-inches apart,
running the full width of the door.
As a last resort, park your vehicle
against the inside of the garage
door to help prevent it from bow-
ing in and popping off the tracks.
Check out your generator to
make sure it is working properly.
Put the extension cords, oil and
gasoline in an area that is easily
accessible. Do not store the gaso-
line inside your home. Do not
attempt to operate your generator
inside your home. Have battery-
operated radios and flashlights
handy.
Remember, we've all been
through this before so take the
time now to prepare so that you
don't have to panic later.


Generators still top storm supply list


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
After the past two hurricane
seasons, we have learned how
much we depend on electricity
in our daily lives. Without elec-
tricity we quickly learned first
hand what it was like to live in
Florida prior to Edison inventing
the light bulb. Oil lamps, candles
and flashlights were worth their
weight in gold.
Unless you were lucky
enough to have a gas stove,
cooking had to be done on a
grill. It's amazing what can be
cooked on a gas or charcoal
grill.
Those of us living in the coun-
try were quickly reminded that
without power our well pumps
were worthless. So we bathed in
our swimming pools, ponds and
even ditches. There were people
cleaning up in the flooded park-
ing lot of North Lake Plaza.
In true pioneer fashion, we
lugged 5-gallon buckets of water
into our bathrooms to flush the
toilets.
We became experts on how
long a bag of ice could keep
food cold. Even more important-
ly, we became our grandparents
- waiting in long lines for food,
water and ice like they did dur-
ing the Great Depression.
Having been through all of
this over the past two years,
many residents of Okeechobee
have decided that "enough is
enough." What we endured
over the past two summers has
educated us as to what we need
to have to be truly prepared for
the upcoming hurricane season.
Other than packing up and
getting out of the path of an
upcoming hurricane, the con-
sensus of opinion in Okee-
chobee is that one of the most
important items on a hurricane
preparedness list is the purchase
a generator.
With generators so high on
everyone's list, now is the time
to purchase one if you haven't
already done so. If you do pur-
chase a new unit, do not leave it
in its box until needed. Take it
out of its box and familiarize
yourself with the unit. Test it to
make sure it works. If you have
an existing generator or get a
used one, check it out to make
sure that it is still in good work-
ing condition. If not, have it pro-
fessionally serviced now. You
will not be able to have it
worked on right before an
impending storm.
With all the generators being


purchased, it is extremely
important to use caution when
operating them. Generators can
create hazards for homeowners
and electric utility workers.
Make sure to always read and
follow the manufacturer's safety
and operating instructions.
Carbon monoxide is a color-
less, odorless and tasteless poi-
son gas. It is a component of the
exhaust from a generator's
engine. This gas is deadly. Never
run your generator inside your
home. or garage. Only run the
generator outdoors in a well-
ventilated, dry area away from
the air intakes to your home.
Plug your individual appli-
ances into the generator using a
heavy duty, outdoor rated exten-
sion cord with a wire gauge ade-
quate for the appliance load. Do
not operate more appliances
and equipment than the output
rating of the generator; to do so
will overload and damage the
generator and could cause a fire.
If your generator is connect-
ed to the house wiring, the
home must have a transfer
switch installed by a licensed
electrician. A transfer switch
connects your house to the gen-
erator and disconnects it from
the utility power. This will pre-
vent backfeeding, which ener-
gizes the electrical circuits out-
side your home.
Backfeeding usually occurs
when a generator is connected
directly to the electric panel or
circuit in the home. Feeding
power back into the utility sys-
tem during an outage will ener-
gize the transformer serving the
house and could pose a serious
problem to crews working to
restore power in the area.
Use the following guide as a
rule of thumb when purchasing
a generator.
A 1,000 watt recreational
generator is for boating, camp-
ing and limited outdoor use.
A 5,500 watt generator will
run limited lightingradio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, surnp pump
and microwave up to the capaci-
ty of the unit.
A.7,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump,
microwave and other various
low watt electrical devices up to
the capacity of the unit.
.A 12,500 .watt. generator
will run limited lighting, radio,
television,, refrigerator, sump
pump, microwave and other
various low watt electrical
devices up to the capacity of the


Safeguard your financial records from damage


With the approach of hurricane
season, the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice encourages taxpayers to safe-
guard their records.
Some simple steps can help tax.-
payers and businesses protect
financial and tax records in case of
hurricanes and other disasters.
"Even if you don't live in an area
prone to hurricanes,. this is an
excellent time to take a few min-
utes to help safeguard financial
documents that can be hard to
replace," said Kevin Brown, Com-
missioner of the IRS Small Busi-
ness/Self-Employed Division, Listed
below are tips for individuals and
businesses by tax professionals
and the IRS on maintaining finan-
cial and tax records.
Paperless
recordkeeping
Many people receive bank state-
ments and documents by e-mail.
This method is an outstanding way
to'secure financial records. Impor-
tant tax records such as W-2s, tax
returns and other paper docu-
ments can be scanned onto an
electronic format.
"New technologies provide tax-
payers with new opportunities to
keep their records secure," said E.
Martin Davidoff, chairman, Tax
Liaison Committee, American
Association of Attorney-Certified
Public Accountants (AAA-CPA).
"Many people are now receiving
bank statements and documents
via e-mail. One approach, using a
scanner to fill in the gaps of elec-
tronic commerce, is to have all
financial records in electronic for-
mat. By doing so, one can copy all
of their records onto a 'key' or
'jump drive' periodically. Those
keys can be sent to a relative in
another city for safe-keeping in
case one's normal computer back-
up systems are destroyed."
Other options include copying
files onto a CD or DVD. Also, many
retail stores sell computer software

packages that you can use for
recordkeeping.
"Disasters such as, hurricanes
can'l be prevented," said Dennis B.
Drapkin, chair, American Bar Asso-,
ciation IABA.) Section of Taxation.
"But the disruption they cause can
be reduced. Remember to safe-
guard and backstop your most
important records. Store them in a
safe place. Back-up your electronic
files. Make duplicates where possi-
ble and keep them in a separate
location."
Document
valuables
One option is to photograph or
videotape the contents in your
house, especially iteins of greater
value. The IRS has a disaster loss
workbook (Publication 584) that
can help you compile a room-by-
room list ofyour belongings.
"This will help you recall and
prove the market value of items for
insurance and casualty loss
claims," said Tom Ochsenschlager,
vice president-taxation, American
Institute of Certified Public Accoun-

ITl. T^T .~


tants IAICPA.. "Be sure to store the
photos \\ith a friend or family
member who lives away from the
geographic area at risk."
Proximity to your home should
not be your main concern when
choosing a location to store impor-
tant records. Remember, a disaster
that strikes your home is also likely
to affect facilities nearby, making
qiick retrieval of your records diffi-
cult or impossible.
Check on
Fiduciary Bonds
Employers who use payroll
service providers should ask the
provider if they have a fiduciary
bond in place. The bond could pro-
tect the employer in the event of
default by the payroll service
provider.
Update Emergency Plans
Emergency plans should be
reviewed annually. Personal and
business situations change over
time and so do preparedness
needs. Individual taxpayers should
make sure they are saving docu-
ments everybody should keep

including such things as \\ -2s,
home closing statements and
insurance records. When employ-
ers hire new employees or when a
company or organization changes
functions, plans should be updated
accordingly and employees should
be informed of the changes.
Count on the IRS
In the event of a disaster, the IRS
stands ready to help. The IRS has
valuable information you can
request if your records are
destroyed.
, Immediately after a casualty,
you can request a copy of a return
and all attachments. (including
Forit W-2) by using Form 4506,
Request for Copy of Tax Return.
If 3ou just 'need information
from your return, you can order a

Always check the amount .of
wattage the appliance requires.
before plugging it into a genera-
tor. If the box or paperwork of
the appliance does not list the
wattage, the formula to figure
wattage is: amps x volts = watts.
As you can see, it is important
to choose the size'of generator
that is right for you. It is also
important to only use those
appliances that are absolutely
necessary for your basic needs.
generatorss are not mean to
totally take the place of the elec-
tric company. They are meant to
provide temporary basic elec-
iricity to your home until power
can be restoied.
Finally, don't forget that gen-
erators run on gasoline. Make
sure that you have'enough gaso-
line to. kehep the generator run-
ning for an extended period of
time. The largest generator you


can purchase will do you no
good without fuel to run it. Read
the instructions for your genera-
tor to ascertain how long the
generator will run on a 5-gallon
can of gas.
Keep in mind, that if the
power is out in town, the gas sta-
tions cannot pump gasoline. So,
have enough on hand to last sev-
eral days. Keep those gas cans in
a dry, well-ventilated place easily
accessible after the storm pass-
es.
Generators are definitely con-
venient and useful. Just remem-
ber to use common sense and
read the directions before using
them.

Preparing for the aftermath of a
hurricane is just as important as
preparing for it before its arrival.
Below are excerpts from the
Florida Department of Health on
precautions to take after a storm
and how to handle various facets
of daily life.
Food safety:
Do not eat any food that may
have come into contact with con-
taminated water from floods or
tidal surges.
Do not eat canned food if
there is a bulging or opening on the
can or the caps of commercial
drinks.
Save undamaged, commer-
cially canned foods by removing
labels and disinfecting the cans in a
bleach solution of one-fourth cup
bleach in one gallon of water. Re-
label the cans including expiration
date and food type. Assume that
home-canned food is unsafe.
Feed infants only pre-mixed
canned baby formula. Do not use
powdered formulas prepared with
treated water. Use boiled water to
prepare formula..
Frozen and refrigerated foods
can be unsafe after a hurricane.
Without power, refrigerators keep
foods cool for only about four
hours. Throw out thawed and

Sanitation/Hygiene:
Always wash your hands with
soap and water that has been
boiled or disinfected before eating,
after toilet use, after cleanup activi-
ties, and after handling articles con-
taminated by floodwater or
sewage.
Post-hurricane flooding may
mean water contains fecal matter
from sewage systems, agricultural
and industrial waste, and septic
tanks. Keep open cuts or sores
clean by washing them with soap
and disinfected or boiled water.
Apply antibiotic ointment to
reduce the risk of infection. See a
physician if a wound or sore devel-
ops redness, swelling or drainage.
Do not allow children to play
in flood water; it can expose them
to fecal matter. Disinfect toys that
have been in flood water before let-
ting children play with them. Use
one-fourth cup water in one gallon
of water to disinfect toys and other
items.
Power outage,
prevent fire hazard:
Use battery-powered lanterns
and flashlights rather than candles.
If using candles, keep in safe
holders away from curtains, paper,
wood or other flammable items.

water, prevent
mosquito-borne
illness:
Heavy rains and flooding can
lead to more mosquitoes, which
are most active at sunrise and
sunset.
Protect against mosquitoes
by using these prevention tips:
Avoid being outside at dusk and
dawn; wear clothes that cover
most of your skin; use DEET
repellent, or picaridin and oil of
lemon eucalyptus; get rid of
standing water where mosqui-
toes can lay eggs.
Home clean-up:
Flood water with a hurricane
must be removed as soon as pos-
sible since it may contain material
from overflowing sewage sys-
tems. If there has been a back-
flow of sewage into the house,
take the following measures for
clean-up:
Clean walls, hard-surface
floors and other household sur-
faces with soap and water; disin-
.fect with one cup bleach to five
gallons of water.
Disinfect surfaces that come
in contact with food and chil-
dren's play areas.
Wash all linens and clothing


oil


in hot water or dry clean.
Air dry in the sun mattresses,
furniture and items that can't be
washed and spray with a disinfec-
tant.
Steam clean all carpeting.
Replace filters in heating and
air conditioning systems.
Wear rubber boots and
waterproof gloves while cleaning.
Be careful not to mix certain
household cleaners and disinfec-
tants, as some mixtures can pro-
duce toxic fumes and result in
injury or death.
Discard materials that can-
not be thoroughly cleaned and
dried within 24-48 hours.
Watch for mold and carefully
remove or clean it. For more infor-
mation on mold, call the Okee-
chobee County Health Depart-
ment at 863-462-5819 or Air
Toxics Hotline at 800-543-8279.
Home repair:
Work in pairs or groups.
Take short breaks -and work
during cooler hours of the day.
Wear goggles, heavy gloves
and steel-toed boots.
Clean wounds with soap
and clean water.
Leave immediately if water-
damaged structure shifts or
unusual noises occur.
Avoid lifting more than 50
pounds of debris or materials.
Avoid heat stroke/exhaus-
tion by wearing light-colored,
loose-fitting clothing and drinking
fluids every 15 minutes.
Only experienced people
should use chainsaws and special
equipment; wear earplugs when
operating.
Turn off power at main
breaker to prevent electrocution
in wet areas.
Never handle a downed
power line.
Never bring gasoline- or
diesel-powered pumps, genera-
tors or pressure washers indoors
as they release carbon monoxide
-a deadly, colorless and odor-
less gas.
Avoid exhaustion by resting
often and maintaining a normal
sleep schedule.
Take advantage of disaster
relief programs in the community.

to do after a hurricane, contact

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Seven Lawn Ornaments
These seven little "cut-ups" won't nibble your lawn,
dig up your flowers or put a bite in your budget
(they're made from scrap-plywood). They will add a
touch of whimsy anywhere they're displayed, and
they're so easy to make that the whole family can
join the fun.
Simply trace the full-size patterns onto plywood,
cut them out and decorate following detailed painting
instructions. Apply a sealer and enjoy them for years
in the yard or garden, as a weather vane or even on
the nursery wall.
The plan includes full-size traceable patterns and
painting guides for a calf, a duck, a pig, two puppies,
a rooster and a squirrel and range in size from 12
inches to 16 inches tall.
