BELLE GLADE Belle Glade
City Commissioners voted Thurs-
day to immediately begin negotia-
tions with the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office, but decided to pro-
ceed without the participation of
the city manager.
If successful the negotiations
will dissolve the present police
department, to be absorbed by the
county agency.
Commissioner Gwen Asia-


Williams, citing her opposition to
continuing the discussions, criti-
cized her fellow commissioners
for going forward even while
questions remained about the
grand jury's report and its findings.
She questioned the validity of
the petition, signed by residents,
asking the city to consider the
transfer of its policing services to
the county, which was directly
cited in the grand jury report. She
claimed to have found instances
where specific names were placed


several times on the petition.
"I do not want citizens to ques-
tion our integrity," Commissioner
Asia-Williams said.
She also said carrying forward
without Commissioner Mary
Kendall, who was absent at the
June 8 meeting, was wrong and
asked the commissioners to con-
sider postponing the meeting -
the meeting continued.
Throughout the meeting, Com-
missioner Asia-Williams, who
chose to sit through the rest of the


meeting in an unofficial role, as a
resident, chastised the commis-
sion again and again for their role
in the discussions.
The discussion at the meeting
focused on selecting a team to be
involved in the negotiations with
the, county on the city's behalf.
Commissioners selected City
Attorney Glen Torcivia, Finance
Director Derek Moore and Interim
Chief Gonzalez to participate in the
discussions.
After City Manager Houston


Tate said he traditionally partici-
pates in major negotiations, but
would follow the commission's
directives, Commissioner Don
Garrett said he placed some of the
blame for the department's trou-
bles on the manager.
"This happened under your
watch," Commissioner Garrett
told Mr. Tate.

who made the original motion to

BELLE GLADE Police
have arrested a juvenile in con-
nection with the shooting death
of a teenager earlier this year.
Police say the juvenile
played a key role in the death of
17-year-old Carlos Segura.
According to police, Carlos,
after exiting from a store, got
into an argument with the sus-
pect. He reportedly drove away,
coming near the area again
when he made a U-turn. :
That's when the suspect
fired several shots at the vehi-
cle. One of the bullets hit the
victim in the head, killing him
instantly.
Police interviewed several


witnesses of the shooting. The
witness statements consistently
pointed to a juvenile who may
have been the person:to fire the
hail of bullets that ended the
driver's life that night. One of
the witnesses picked the sus-
pect out of a photo line up.
The investigation took offi-
cers to the streets of Riviera
Beach, where police say they
believe the suspect may have
been hiding immediately after
the shooting.
A week-and-a-half ago,
Police went to the juvenile's
home in the early morning
hours after receiving a tip that
he was in Belle Glade. Police
knocked on the door to the

evacuation plan


When they filed in to the library, the children made sure to get a good seat before the
magic show.


By Abigail Payne
The Sun
The Glades area is dotted
with numerous mobile home
parks; parks which sometimes
bear the worst that a hurricane
has to offer. The 715 Mobile
Home Park in Belle Glade,
Keen's Trailer Park in Pahokee,
and others have suffered devas-
tating damage from hurricanes
in recent years.
With .hurricane season
already started there is very lit-
tle that an owner of a mobile
home can do to prepare their
homes for the fierce storms, so
owners instead are encouraged
to make sure that they are pre-


pared in the event that they will
have to leave if a storm hits the
area.
SEven while individual cities
strongly urge their mobile
home residents to evacuate
when a hutricane approaches,
there are still some who decide
to stay there.
That is a dangerous decision
to make.
The problem is that mobile
homes are easily .destroyed
during the storm and many
people who decide to stay are
placing themselves at great risk
of being injury or death.
'So this year, residents are

Clean-up effort


seeks volunteers


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE If it suddenly
becomes necessary, you can bet
that Ashley Tripp will make the
trip on her own to clean up the
area's parks and streets.
Of course, Ashley would love
to have the company of about 50
willing volunteers to help her!
"The word Belle means beau-
tiful," said Ms. Tripp, commenting
on.the importance of keeping the
city in tip-top condition. "If every-
body pitched in, Belle Glade
would be appealing."
For years now, Ms. Tripp, has


taken-it upon herself to organize
several clean-up events through-
out the city. Her involvement in
the county's Great American
Clean-Up event, happening
around Earth Day, is something
that the community can count
on.
This year, Ms. Tripp and a
number of volunteers decided to
team up for the clean-up efforts
again and took to the streets with
plastic bags and other tools to
pick up as much trash as possible
in just a few hours. Several groups

'Miss Jean' Anderson
Lois Jean Sermons Anderson,
82, died June 7, in Ft. Myers. A long-
time resident of Clewiston, she was
actively involved in numerous civic
efforts over the last three decades,
and was best known for her dedi-
cation to people through health
and human services.
"Jean was real active in District
8 health planning and very interest-
ed in mental health," said Dr.
James Forbes, who worked with
her for over 30 years. "She was a
very intelligent woman who was
vocal in the community and usual-
ly positive, but could be critical
when it was justified. She was
strong enough that she would tell
you what she thought, and she was
smart enough that she was usually
right."
Longtime Hendry County pedi-
atrician Dr. Martha Valiant said
Clewiston has lost a wonderful
asset. "I met Jean when I rolled
into town 30 years ago, and I loved
her and respected her because she
is such an advocate for health
issues," she explained. "Whether
you agreed with her or not, she
was always willing to take a stand."
Often recognized for her tireless
commitment and service to the
state of Florida, Hendry County
and the town of Clewiston, she
was best known for the following
accomplishments, awards and
recognition:
Woman of Accomplishment-
2003-Community Service/Clewis-

Recognized by state of Florida

cy Committee for her service &
dedication
Founded the ARC, first school
for the mentally retarded in Clewis-
ton, in the early 1970s.
During her Clewiston residency,
Mrs. Anderson served as director of
the Clewiston Chamber of Com-
merce for many years and greatly
contributed to the development of
the HRMC hospital park and to the
acquisition of the Certificate of
Need for the local nursing home.
Having managed the restaurants of
both the Clewiston Inn and the
Clewiston Country Club, she was
known throughout the community
for her southern culinary skills.
Born on December 21, 1924, in
Winterville, N.C., she. was the
youngest child of Matthew Cor-
nelius and Jemima Catherine Jack-
son Sermons. In her weekly news-
paper columns for the Clewiston
News, Miss Jean shared many vivid
memories of growing up on a


tobacco farm in Greenville, N.C. As
a staff writer for the newspaper for
over 13 years, she wrote two week-
ly columns, Miss Jean Cooks and
Jean Anderson's Opinion.
At age 15, Ms. Anderson
enrolled at the College of William
' &Mary and married naval aviator,
Jerry Anderson, at age 17. After
WWII, Jerry became a veterinarian
and public health officer. They lived
on U.S. Air Force bases all around
the continental United States and
Puerto Rico, and retired in Naples,
Fla., in 1969, only to move to
Clewiston, shortly thereafter.
According to her family, it was
immediately that her love affair
%\ith Clewiston began. As her
columns attested, Miss Jean
enjoyed the arrival of the cardinals
and buntings each winter, and her
self-proclaimed favorite sport was
reading. She loved flowers, her gar-
den and "good" Bridge partners.
Miss Jean is survived by seven
children; Jeff. Jane, Jim (Lori), Ole
IYuli), Scott (Laura), Richard
(Beth), John (Laura) ard nine
grandchildren: Adam (Wendy),
Ana (Don), Ryan, Emily Jean,
Michael, Hannah Jean, Grace, Ash-
ley Jean, Jordan Jean and two
great grandchildren (Oak and
Ben).
The family would especially like
to thank Michelle and Joe Bristol,
Kristy Bristol, Laura and Lori
Anderson, Jeannie Byrd, Reva and
Ed Marshall and Hope Hospice of
Fort Myers for their loving devotion
and care for her during the last few
months.
A memorial service was held at
the First United Methodist Church
in Clewiston at 10:30 a.m. on June


14. The family requests that in lieu
of flowers donations be sent to:
Sunrise Community of Hendry
County, PO Box 185, Clewiston,

Grant helps
Ken Holley, Board President of
Hendry-Glades Behavioral Health
Center, announced Monday that
the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation has awarded a grant in
the amount of $20,000 to supple-
ment county and state funding of
the children's mental health outpa-


fund children's mental health services


tient services for the upcoming fis-
calyear.
"In these challenging times,
health care funding is tight, said Mr.
Holley. "Funding for mental health
services in particular is suffering
due to the new changes in the Med-
icaid reimbursement system. The


Community Foundation recog-
nizes this need and we certainly
appreciate their help for children's
outpatient services."
Joseph Hosick, Executive Direc-
tor of the Center, added that
Hendry-Glades Behavioral Health
Center was one of 81 applicants


Hendry County 4-H'ers meet


with Representative Grimsley


requesting more than $1.6 million
in assistance. Forty-five applications
were accepted and funded for a
total of $585,765 in total awards
during the foundation's winter
grant cycle. Mr. Hosick added, The
Community Foundation has
always supported our area and
communities. This award is espe-
cially needed at this time and I
appreciate the Foundation's inter-
est in our children's programming.
The funding will be used to supple-
ment our sliding scale-fee system
which is based on the Federal
Poverty Index to make our therapy
services affordable.

Be prepared in



case of evacuation


Here it is that time of year
again when we are faced with
the threat of Evacuation from our
homes. We never know when
we this could happen because of
fire, train wreck, floods or hurri-
canes. It is up to us to be pre-
pared!
1. PEOPLE: Have a plan for
getting out of the house and
make sure everyone knows it.
Have an emergency bag of food
and water for your family.
Include wholesome snacks and
treats for the children: dried fruit,
nuts, peanut butter, crackers and
granola bars.
2. PETS: Keep pet carriers and
leashes readily available to lead
pets to safety. Also take pet food
with you.
3. PICTURES: Keep negatives
or CDs of pictures in a lock box
or at a family member's home.
Have picture albums in one
place ready to grab and go at a
moments notice.
4. PAPERS: Have all your
important papers in a lock box at
a bank and only keep copies at
the house. This keeps you from
panicking. If you have them at
home then put them in a folder
that you can easily grab if you
have to move fast. Color code it
so you can find it!
5. PRESCRIPTIONS: Take your
medications with you. Don't for-
get the ones that have to be
refrigerated like insulin. Have
small ice chest and cold packs
readily accessible to pack and go.
If you have babies; remember
their formula or medications.
6. PURSES and PETRO: This is
where you keep your identifica-
tion, credit cards and cash. Keep
a stash of cash for emergencies
and grab it. You may not be able
to use an ATM in the event of a
power outage. Make sure your
car always has a half a tank of
gas.
7. PROPER CLOTHES and
COMFORT ITEMS: According to
the weather conditions; gather
up a change of clothes along
with outer clothing: coats, rain
gear, boots, gloves and hats. If
you have babies remember dia-
pers. Remember to grab your
children's favorite blanket,
stuffed animal or toy. A game or a
deck of cards could keep them
occupied and calm too.
8. PLANNER/CALENDAR/CON-
TROL JOURNAL: These docu-
ments have all the information
you will need from phone num-
bers, insurance numbers and
important dates. They are small
and filled with things you don't
have to try to remember.
9. PERSONAL PROTECTION:
Many of us still have that time of


the month. Be sure and grab a
box of your preferred protection.
It may be hard to find if you have
been evacuated. Stress can cause
our bodies to do strange things
too. So be prepared. Take med-
ication for cramps too.
10. PHONES, RADIOS, FUEL
FOR THE CAR: Many of us have
cell phones now. Always keep
them charged up and have a
charger in the car or an extra bat-
tery. They may not work in the
event of power outages, but then
they might. Know which local
radio station has emergency bul-
letins. Keep your battery pow-
ered radio tuned to that local sta-
tion and have plenty of batteries
for it. Also keep a old type regular
phone that does not operate with
electricity. GAS PUMPS don't
work without power either. You
can't leave if your car is on
empty. So keep your car fuel tank
topped off when it hits a half of
tank. This way you will have gas
to drive at least a couple of
hours. Evacuation routes are
usually bumper to bumper traf-
fic. Having a tank filled will keep
you less stressed.
11. PATIENCE: This is one of
the most important things to
pack. Keep it inside of you so that
you have a clear calm head. Hav-
ing your P's to Preparedness list
guiding you will keep you
patient. In the event of an evacu-
ation there will be lots of dis-
placed people. Being patient will
make things less stressful. Your
children need to see you calm
and collected. This will help keep
them calm too.
We can FLY in the face of Dan-
ger and Emergency if we are pre-
pared. Don't wait till you are
being asked to evacuate. Every-
one thinks that it could not hap-
pen to them. Well it could and it
is up to you to make sure you are
prepared. Don't wait! DO IT
NOW!

Florida manatees deserve protection


By Patrick Rose
Save the Manatee Club
Despite growing threats to the
manatee's long-term survival and
overwhelming public opposition,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Com-
mission (FWC) voted last week to
prematurely downlist manatees
from Endangered to Threatened.
This decision plays right into the
hands of those who want to
exploit manatee habitat for devel-
opment and high-speed recre-
ation.
Even though the state found
that the manatee population
could be reduced by as much as
50 percent in the future and that
manatees meet the federal and
World Conservation Union's
(IUCN) definition for Endangered,
manatees no longer qualify for
state Endangered status because
the FWC arbitrarily changed its
listing/delisting rules by adopting
the IUCN criteria for Endangered
and then calling it Threatened.
Thirty conservation and ani-
mal welfare organizations repre-
senting millions of Americans
around the nation urged FWC to
fix its imperiled species classifica-
tion system to properly align it
with IUCN's. Thirty-nine manatee
and dugong scientists from
numerous countries around the
world sent a letter in opposition to
the manatee's downlisting. And
people from all over the nation
called the agency in protest, while
hundreds more attended the
Commission meeting. Out of
scores of speakers at this meeting,
only a handful of development,
marine industries' and go-fast
boaters' lobbyists spoke out in
favor of downlisting manatees to
Threatened!
Further, 17 organizations, filed
a legal petition asking the FWC to
fix its imperiled species classifica-
tion system. But, in the end, none
of it mattered to the Commission-


Submitted to INI/Patrick Rose, Save the Manatee Club
The future of the Florida manatee may be threatened by the "downlisting" of their protection
status from "endangered" to "threatened."


ers.
The FWC insists protections
won't change, but a review of
Florida law shows Endangered
species are afforded more protec-
tion than Threatened species. The
Commission claims their Man-
agement Plan will protect mana-
tees. However, Florida's Legisla-
ture will be pressured to reduce
FWC's authority and funding to
protect manatees. This will
undermine the implementation
of the Plan, and prevent real
recovery.
The FWC and Governor Bush
are declaring this a victory for
manatees but the facts show oth-
erwise. The agency claims that
the manatee population is grow-


ing, yet a state report shows that
only the 2 smallest subpopula-
tions clearly show growth.
Together, these 2 subpopulations
only account for 16% of the man-
atee population. The largest sub-
population on the Atlantic coast
shows a probable decline of
about 3 percent per year over the
last five years. The Southwest
subpopulation is already in
decline. Manatees continue to
die from boat strikes in near-
record numbers, and there has
been a 17 percent increase in
manatee mortality from boat col-
lisions over the last 5 year period
as compared to the previous 5
year period!
Please ask yourself, can all of


the organizations representing
hundreds of thousands of Florida
citizens and millions more people
nationwide who have shared
their concerns over the new list-
ing process be wrong? I urge the
Commission to take a step back
from the situation and think about
the repercussions to manatees
and many other imperiled species
if we are right and they are wrong.
The consequences will be disas-
trous. If we are wrong and they
are right, then no harm will have
been done.
In the meantime manatees'
projected loss of winter habitat
could cause catastrophic future
losses.
This is no time for celebration!

Smith is Teacher of the Year for Lakeside


Ruby Smith, Lakeside Acade-
my's FCAT grades Language and
Reading Arts teacher, has been
selected Teacher of the Year for
2005-2006.
Ms. Smith's lifelong career in
education in the Glades serves
her well in teaching the children
of the Belle Glade, Pahokee and
South Bay communities good
study and learning habits, and
helping them improve their per-
formance on the FCAT exams.
Lakeside Academy's students

Local program
offers help

By Abigail Payne
The Sun
A lot of people talk every day
about losing weight, but how
many of them actually accom-
plish that?
Today many people are obese
due to the ways that.they carry
themselves, general inactivity
and because of what they eat.
No matter what your age,
everyone is encouraged to get
up, get out and get moving.
Locally, there are aerobics
classes offered in Belle Glade at
Pioneer Park and in Pahokee at
the Deliverance Christian Center.
SOther places to go include the
Boys & Girls Club Gym and Pool,
which is open to the youth in the
community.
Some local housing develop-
ments offer services, which can
include pools and athletic courts.
These centers encourage activity
Which leads to losing weight.
SAs you might know, even our
food pyramid has changed it
now has 'activities listed. It
encourages exercise as a part of
everyone's diet.
There are plenty of ways to
get active.
Instead of being a couch pota-
to, get up and change the televi-
sion by hand. Go outside with
your family and play together.
Participate in school sports or
any health program your school
may have. Even if you don't like
sports, do something, anything,
just to be active.
Adults can be active in their


grades 3 through 6, and
achieved the highest writing
score average of all the Glades
elementary schools. Further-
more, 82 percent of the lowest
performing students achieved
gain scores in reading.
It is to Ms. Smith's credit that
she had a great deal to do with
these results.
Ms. Smith's contributions to
Lakeside Academy extend
beyond the great work she does
with her students in the class-
room. She has also been instru-
mental in uniting parents and


child's program or join a group at
work.
Health is an outstanding issue
that we need to take seriously.
Obesity is a huge problem in our
community. The U.S. Food &
Drug Administration suggests
that: Obesity leads to high blood
pressure, heart disease plus
other illnesses; the average per-
son needs about 2,000 calories a
day; You should have at least 30
minutes of exercise most days of
the week; Eat foods low in fat
and calories; Eat a variety of
foods because there are a wide
variety of nutrients that your
body needs.'
Even at home, anyone can
work out. There are exercises we
can do, including push-ups, pull-
ups, crunches, twists etc. Power
walking and jogging are effective
ways to losing weight also.
The best way to lose weight is
to do it right and do it faithfully.
Begin by setting your goals. It is
best to have a partner in your
plan. Set a goal based on your
current weight, height, age and
heredity.
Heredity is one factor that
people often do not consider.
Our heredity is a major part of
what makes our build, so there
are limits to how much it will
change. Plan what you will eat
and stick with it. Plan your work
out schedule and stick with at
least 30 minutes almost everyday
of the week.
Drinking water is critical dur-
ing these work-out sessions.
Weigh yourself weekly and
keep track of your weight loss to
judge how your body is cooper-
ating with your plans. Make
changes when needed.


staff in the common cause of
improving the quality of educa-
tion for their children. By bring-
ing humor, excitement, and
motivation to her students, she
makes Lakeside Academy's
motto of "We are family" a reali-
ty.
Although school is out for the
summer, Ms. Smith is hard at
work in her classroom organ-
izing, planning, and preparing
new materials for the coming
school year. Ms. Smith well-
deserves her designation as
Teacher of the Year.

There are a number of pro-
grams available out there
designed to help youth and keep
them out of trouble, to guide
them on their way to a more suc-
cessful future.
SSports like football, basketball,
track and field, volleyball, soccer
and baseball are just a few of the
activities that go on throughout
the school year. Other programs
such as band, chorus, art and
drama and academic programs
such as National Honor Society,


Student Council, Brain Bowl and
Academic Games are available.
These programs are great
organizations for young people.
They provide community service,
experience and something to be
proud of. Good recommenda-
tions grow from activities. These
give students a foot in the door to
other opportunities.
Glades Area Youth NAACP is
out there, too. Glades Area Youth
NAACP remains a very active and
worthwhile program for local kids.
The Youth and College Divi-
sion (YCD) was created in March
of 1936 under the guidance'of Ms.
Juanita E. Jackson. It provided
national activities for young peo-
ple. Monthly meetings are held to
discuss issues of community
interest.
In 1962, YCD had registered a
record 200,000 young people.
There are currently over 500 units


representing thousands of young
people. The youth council's focus
is "Training and developing the
skills necessary for leadership and
activism. Mobilization, communi-
ty education, and youth activities
are essential focus areas of the
youth council."
The local unit, formerly
advised by Gwen Asia-Williams
and Linda Johnson, is now
advised by Mr. Percy Napier, a
Glades Central High School and
Moorehouse College alumni who
teaches in Canal Point.
Mr. Napier cares about his
hometown and community, and
he gets involved to show young
people what they can achieve; to
grow up and give back to their
hometown.
"It is a good program for youth
to join, because we speak up for
what we see wrong. We go out
and raise awareness on political,
social and economic issues, offer
tutorial service and participate in
countless events to inform other
youth and make our society bet-
ter," said Matthew Fuller, the cur-
rent President.
The group has pushed the
importance of voter's registration,


staying in school, AIDS awareness
and health awareness.
Mr. Armaad Morman, the cur-
rent Vice President, believes the
program is helping the area's
youth.
"The Glades Area Youth
NAACP is a great organization to
join because we travel around the
country and meet other youth,"
said Mr. Morman. "We go many
places and see many things. We
learn about other lifestyles and
cultures and, most importantly,
we have the voice and impact to
stand up for what we believe in."
Ms. Courtnee Wright, the cur-
rent Treasurer/Secretary, highly
and enthusiastically encourages
youth to join.
"It is a life changing and eye-
opening organization that was
made for us, so Why not join?"
she asked. "Look at the trendset-
ters that fought for equal rights,
they were the founders and mem-
bers of this organization so why
shouldn't we take pride and join
the fight," she said.
If you are interested in joining,
or would like to learn more, call
985-1154 Matthew Fuller or 261-
3350 Armaad Morman.

GAINESVILLE Immokalee
High School has been penalized
by the FHSAA for violations in
boys soccer and football.
The violations centered on the
participation of three student-ath-
letes who were over-age. FHSAA
Bylaw 11.6.1 states that a student-
athlete is eligible until the day he
or she reaches the age of 19 years
9 months. Two of the three over-
age student-athletes participated
in the school's boys soccer pro-
gram; the third in football.
Although the school became
aware of one of the violations in
October 2005, it did not report the
violation to the FHSAA Office until
May 2006. Subsequent investiga-
tion by the Association and the
school led to the discovery of the
two other violations. All three stu-
dents were immigrants who had
provided false birth certificates to
gain eligibility. The school did not
file with the FHSAA Office the
required form for international
students on any of the three stu-
dents because they were not clas-
sified as "international students"
by Collier County School Board
policy.
The school was officially noti-
fied of the Commissioner's find-
ings and penalties last week.
"These violations are both
unfortunate and disturbing,"
Commissioner John A. Stewart
said. "The FHSAA age rule exists
to ensure the physical well-being
of all student-athletes. We have
to be certain that teen-agers are
playing against other teen-agers
and not against adult men and
women.
"While we have no reason to
believe the violations constitute a
willful misconduct on behalf of
the school, we cannot dismiss
the school's failure to ensure that
the student-athletes were of the
appropriate age."
In addition to a formal repri-
mand, the Commissioner
imposed the following penalties
in this case:
The school is fined a total of
$3,000 ($1,000 for each of the
three violations);
The school must reimburse
the Association for the cost of the
investigation (final expenses
have not yet been determined);
The school's boys soccer
program is placed on two years
of restrictive probation to
encompass the 2006-07 and
2007-08 school years. During this


two-year period of probation, the
school's boys soccer program is
restricted from participation in all
preseason and FHSAA state
series postseason competitions.
The school's varsity boys soccer
team is limited solely to the per-
missible 25 regular season con-
tests.
The school's football pro-
gram is placed on one year of
restrictive probation to encom-
pass the 2006-07 school year.
During this one-year period of
probation, the school's football
program is restricted from partic-
ipation in a preseason classic or
jamboree, a post-season bowl
game, FHSAA state series com-
petition, and a spring classic or
jamboree. The school's varsity
football team is limited solely to
the permissible 10 regular sea-
son games.
Games played against
Immokalee in the 2006 football
season will not count in the dis-
trict standings for any opponent.
The school shall forfeit all
victories by its boys soccer team
and football team in which the
ineligible student-athletes partici-
pated.
Further, the school shall sur-
render to the FHSAA the following
trophies: 2004 district boys soccer
runner-up trophy, 2005 district.
boys soccer championship tro-
phy, 2006 district boys soccer
championship trophy, and 2005
district football championship tro-
phy. Official FHSAA records will
be adjusted to reflect Immokalee
High School's participation in
these state series as being vacat-
ed.
FHSAA bylaws ensure the
school's right to appeal the Com-
missioner's findings, as well as
the penalties assessed. The
school has 10 business days to
notify in writing the FHSAA Office
if it intends to file an appeal. Any
appeal would be heard by the
Association's Board of Directors
at its September meeting.
The Immokalee case and Col-
lier County's interpretation of
what constitutes an "international
student" thrust into the spotlight
the FHSAA policy regarding inter-
national students and how it
impacts immigrant students.
Since then it has come to the
attention that a number of other
school districts are not filing the
forms because of similar interpre-
tations. The Association's Board


Prepare your boat for storm season now


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
With the start of the 2006 hur-
ricane season upon us, now is the
time to start making plans to safe-
guard your boat. A few minutes of
preparation now could save you
thousands of dollars and prevent
a great deal of stress in the event
that we are hit with a hurricane
this season.
The following instructions are
only guidelines and may not apply
to every individual situation. The
important thing to remember is to.
keep calm and use good judg-
ment.
Gather all documents per-
taining to your boat including
insurance policies, a recent pic-
ture of your boat, the boat regis-
tration, an inventory of equip-
ment and a copy of the lease
agreement if the boat is stored at
a marina or storage facility. Keep
these documents in a safe place.
Have telephone numbers of the
marina, storage facility and insur-
ance agent readily available.
Keep a list of all items you
remove from the boat prior to the
storm. Include, if possible, the
make, model and original cost of
the equipment. Make note'of
where you are storing this equip-
ment. Keep another list of items
that will remain on the boat.
If you plan to move your
boat to safer ground, be sure to
check the tires, bearings and axle
on your trailer now. Have every-
thing is i\orkirg order.
Know approximately how
long it will take to move the boat

Take the time to prepare your boat for the upcoming hurri-
cane season. A few minutes now could save you thousands
of dollars in damage and a great deal of stress if the area is
hit with a hurricane this season.


and secure it. Remember, traffic
will be heavy and supplies will be
at a premium prior to a hurricane.
If you are planning to move the
boat, give yourself ample time to
do so. If you are keeping it at
home, you will need time to pre-
pare it while. also preparing your
home for the storm. Do not cut
yourself short on time. Have the
materials to secure the boat on
hand. You may not be able to pur-
chase them if a storm is coming.
Once you move the boat to
safe ground or if you are keeping
it at home on its trailer, you
should:
Lash your boat to the trailer
and place blocks between the
frame members and the axle
inside each wheel. Owners of

lightweight boats might want to
consider letting about half the air
out of the tires, then filling the
boat one-third full of water to help
hold it down. The blocks between
the frame and axle will prevent
damage to the springs from the
additional weight of the water.
Tie your boat with heavy
lines to fixed objects. Pick a loca-
tion that allows you to tie it from
all four directions, because hurri-
cane winds rotate and change
direction. It can be tied down to
screw anchors secured into the
ground. Do not tie it to a tree. As
we found out last summer, even
the sturdiest looking trees can be
blown down during a hurricane.
If you intend to keep your boat
in the water, the following should


be adhered to:
If your boat is kept at a mari-
na berth or behind your home in
the water and you intend to leave
it there, double all lines and rig
crossing spring lines fore and aft.
Attach lines high on pilings to
allow for tidal rise or surge. Make
sure lines will:not slip off pilings.
inspect pilings and choose those
that seem strongest and tallest
and are properly installed. The
longer the dock lines, the better a
boat will be'a coping with high
,tides. It is important to double up
on all lines and use chafe-protec-
tors at any potential chafe points.
Cover all lines at rough
points to prevent chafing. Wrap
with tape, rags and rubber hoses.
Install fenders to protect the boat
from rubbing against the pier, pil-
ings and other boats.
Remove all moveable equip-
ment such as canvas, sails,
dinghies, radios, cushions, bimin-
is and roller furling sails. Lash
down everything you cannot
remove such as tillers, wheels,
booms, etc.
Assess the attachment of
cleats, winches and :chocks.
These should have substantial
back plates and adequate stain-
less steel bolt sizes.
Batteries should be fully
charged and checked to ensure
their capability to run automatic
bilge pumps for the duration of
the storm. Consider backup bat-
teries. Cut off all devices using
electricity except bilge pumps.
Never leave a boat on davits
or on a hydro-lift.

problem. Many immigrant stu-
dents live here with their families,
have lived here for years and have

they are not 'international' and

sure that ineligible immigrant stu-
dents are declared ineligible."

Will chocolate ever be considered


Good news for chocoholics
everywhere a new study shows
that chocolate may boost brain
power.
Dr. Bryan Raudenbush of the
Wheeling suitt University in West
Virigina recently published a study
that indicates consuming milk
chocolate increases alertness.
In the study, the researchers
had volunteers snack on milk
chocolate, dark chocolate and
carob. A control group was not
given a snack. After 15 minutes (to
let the snacks digest) the subjects
were subjected to computer tests
Sfor memory, attention span, reac-
tion time and problem solving.
The subjects that were given
milk chocolate scored higher on
memory tests. Those given milk
chocolate and dark chocolate both


I

Life


with Katrina Elsken
scored higher than the other test
groups on reaction time.
In a study at the Imperial Col-
lege in London, a substance found
in chocolate has been found to be
an effect remedy for coughs.
Theobromine, which is natural-
ly found in chocolate, was found
to be more effective in stopping
persistent coughs than codeine.


Codeine is the active ingredient in
the most commonly used pre-
scription cough medicine.
The new research may offer
relief for those who are allergic to
codeine.
The researchers also found that
theobromine had fewer side
effects than codeine. For example,
codeine tends to make users
drowsy while theobromine does
not.
Chocolate which is made from
the cocoa bean, is also rich in
antioxidants. A 2003 study at Cor-
nell University found cocoa has
nearly three times the antioxidants
found in green tea. Antioxidants
are natural substances often found
in plants. These substances help
the body cleanse itself of free radi-
cals, which are the natural byprod-


ucts of cell reproduction and
growth.
Dark chocolate is higher in
antioxidants than milk chocolate.
Of course, even with all this
good news about chocolate, it
should only be consumed in mod-
eration. Chocolate (especially milk
chocolate) is high in calories and
fat. Those on diets that restrict car-
bohydrates, such as Atkins or
South Beach diets, may find they
can easily work dark chocolate
into their diet plan.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy."

her secret barbeque sauce.
The participants were judged
on the following: appearance and
cleanliness, starting the fire, con-
trolling the fire, preparing the


chicken for cooking, skill of barbe-
quing as well as sensory evalua-
tion. Once the chicken was judged,
the participants presented a pres-
entation to consist of, but not limit-
ed to, nutritional facts of chicken,
the broiler industry, as well as food
safety. The title of Noelle's presen-
tation was "Wow That Chicken."
Noelle will be competing in the
National competition on Nov. 15 -

Pet Corner

Question: Dear Doc Savvy.
Hello. I have an 8 yr old Beagle who
suffers from lots of skin allergies.
The testing is erI' cbstli, had I
would also have to commit to regu-
lar visits for allergy injections as
well. What is your opinion about
allergy injections? Does it really
work? Is periodic cortisone treat-
ment okto rely upon instead?
Thanks, George in Okeechobee.
Answer: Hey there George! I
have several patients on food and
regional allergy injections. I also
have several who get periodic corti-
sone treatment as well. From my
impressions, allergy testing and
treatment, do make a difference
only if the commitment to keep up
with them is there. Sometimes sim-
ply finding out what your dog is
allergic to food wise can make
enough of a difference to relive a lot
of problems. I do recommend the
testing if you are able to consider it.
However do consider this, I have
never seen it to be 1.00% effective.
Many times periodic cortisone
treatments are still helpful, but they
will be needed much less than
without the allergy treatment fac-
tor. Allergies can also be responsi-
ble for recurrent ear infections as
well as skin problems. A lot of pet
owners are not aware of this. Too
much cortisone can be unhealthy
and in severe cases cause a lot of
problems to the liver, and also
mimic a disease called Cushing's
disease. Make sure you talk to your
Vet in detail about all this George.
Take care, Doc Savvy.

CCCS has new online Spanish choice Suspect


WEST PALM BEACH Con-
sumer Credit Counseling Service
(CCCS) of Palm Beach County and
the Treasure Coast, a branch of
CCCS of Atlanta, Ga., and the Cred-
Ability Network, is now offering
online bankruptcy counseling and
education in Spanish. This unique,
completely interactive service is
available through the agency's
Web sites: www.cccsinc.org and at
www.cccsenespanol.org.
The CredAbility Network of
CCCS agencies in North Georgia,
South Florida, East Tennessee and
central Mississippi is committed to
helping bankruptcy clients and their
attorneys meet the credit counsel-
ing and education requirements by
the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention
and Consumer Protection Act,
which took effect Oct. 17,2005.
"We are happy to be able to fill
the requests for Spanish service we
have been receiving since last fall
when we were approved to pro-
vide bankruptcy counseling," said

have joined Ms. Tripp, including
some local churches and other
organizations.
Now, Ms. Tripp is interested in
perhaps putting together an organi-
zation that can concentrate on
keeping the city clean year-round.
Envisioning monthly clean-up
events, Ms. Tripp would like the
participation of a few good individ-
uals who are willing to donate their
time to lead the effort to put the
organization together.

begin negotiations with the county
for law enforcement services, said,
"I do not feelwe live in a safe city."
Members of the audience asked
the commission to carefully con-
sider the decision before signing a
contractwith the sheriff's office.
"What are the advantages ver-
sus the disadvantages," one of the
speakers asked. "I think we have a
right to know."
According to city officials, Chief
Bradshaw turned down the city's
offer to negotiate the contract in a
public forum. It is not his practice
to conduct such talksin a public
venue, officials reported.
In the end, the commission
voted to continue negotiations with
the sheriff's office, urging staff to
begin immediately. Officials were
to meet earlier this week to contin-
ue those discussions.
A motion by Mayor Sanchez to


Jessica Cecere, president of CCCS
of Palm Beach County. "Helping
bilingual consumers with critical
financial issues in their first lan-
guage is an important part of serv-
ing our service delivery model,"
Ms. Cecere said.
Increased service to bilingual
consumers is a logical progression
for CCCS; the agency began coun-
seling in Spanish in 1996 and has
maintained one of the few financial
education Web sites in Spanish
since 2003, providing helpful tips to
more than 2,000 Spanish-speakers
each month.
"We are also pleased to be able
to provide the required education
course online in Spanish," said
Christie Hardcastle, Hispanic out-
reach coordinator for CCCS Palm
Beach County. Credit counseling
within 180 days of filing for bank-
ruptcy protection and pre-dis-
charge education are both required
by new law.
Bankruptcy pre-filing counsel-


In the meantime, she continues
her work. Last week, on Thursday,
.Ms. Tripp and a handful of volun-
teers met in Lyons Park. They made
sure that their community parkwas
clean and ready for residents to
enjoy by pruning, edging and pick-
ing up the loose trash at the site.
Lyons Park is one of most
prominent displays of Ms. lTipp's
hard work. With a group of stu-
dents three years ago, she helped
plant several trees around the park
area, and worked closely with the
city to spruce up the park.
In response, the city put in a
walking path and sent crews to
touch-up the park. Years later, the


include the city manager in the
negotiation talks died for lack of a
second from Commissioners Gar-
rett or Miller.
After starting the meeting, and at
Mayor Ray Torres-Sanchez's
request, Public Safety Director Ken
Holley reported that the police
department had been the subject of
a brief investigation that morning.
The state attorney's office
arrived at the department with a
subpoena in hand, asking ques-
tions about the department's han-
dling of evidence, the director said'.
Focusing on the evidence that
the police recovered from its old
police department after a break in
there was made public, the investi-
gators asked to see the weapons
and confirm whether or not the
department had since properly cat-
alogued the items.
"They requested we show all
records from the evidence room,
weapons, narcotics," said Interim
Police Chief Calipto Gonzalez.
According to Chief Gonzalez, after
showing the investigators the sys-


ing costs $50 per household and is
available online, via telephone or
in-person in 17 offices in CredAbili-
ty service areas of north Georgia,
south Florida, east Tennessee and
central Mississippi. The pre-dis-
charge education course also costs
$50 per household and is available
online or in classroom settings in
CredAbility service areas.
As a leading national provider of
bankruptcy counseling and educa-
tion, CCCS is setting the standard for
bilingual service online, over the
telephone and through its branch
office network and community edu-
cation sites. For the past ten years,
CCCS Palm Beach County has been
providing Hispanic outreach servic-
es, with support from community
and financial organizations. The
CredAbility Network served more
than 132,000 people in 2005; about
10 percent of this education and
counseling was in Spanish.


trees that Ms. Tripp's group planted
continue to grow.
On June 17, Ms. Tripp will take
another group to Main Street for
another clean up.
Her ultimate goal is to spread
her drive to other people.
"City employees cannot do it
all," she said. Regarding volunteers,
she said, "Hopefully conviction will
set in to where they want to throw
trash."
If you would like to learn more
about Ms. Tripp's efforts, or if you
would like to pledge your time as a
volunteer, you can call her at 261-

tem the department had used in
storing the evidence prior to the
break in, they'"weren't happy."
According to Mr. Holley, after the
department had been broken into,
officers made sure to remove all
remaining evidence from the site.
"When that evidence was
moved, it was hurriedly moved,"
said Mr. Holley.
Chief Gonzalez said the investi-
gators left satisfied with what the
department was now doing in
terms of its weapons handling.
"They seemed to be happy," he
said.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
defended the department and once
again chastised the commission.
"You are trying to set a prece-
dence of negativity," she told the
board. "There was an error. They
found it. They corrected it."
Responding to concerns about
the safety of Belle Glade under the
current police administration,
Commissioner Asia-Williams said,
"I walk down Fifth Street., I don't
feel threatened."

asked to make all the necessary
preparations to seek shelter far
away from their homes.
When last year's hurricane
season brought Hurricane
Wilma; many mobile homes
destroyed. Because most people
living in mobile homes decided to
leave, except for a small number
of them, no deaths were reported.
Tips on preparing your mobile
homes:
Ensure that you have a hurri-
cane survival/supplies kit (batter-
ies, radios, band-aids, etc.)
Install shutters and plywood,
to seal up your home.
Gas up vehicles and get as
much extra gas as you think you
will need.
Get extra cash as banks may

the police without any incident.
After his arrest, the juvenile
suspect told police he had nothing
to do with the shooting.
According to Interim Chief
Calipto Gonzalez, the suspect will
most likely be tried as an adult
when he goes to court in West
Palm Beach.
The interim chief cited the work


be closed and atms not working if
power is out.
Valuables need to be placed
in storage, or water-proof bags.
Freeze water in jugs, fill up
emergency containers, Sterilize
all containers, tubs, etc. and fill
tubs up with water.
Secure pets and provide
enough food and water for them.
Keep an inventory of what you
have in your home.
Trim trees and shrubs well
ahead of time so there is no loose
debris.
There is always a possibility
that some people will lose their
homes. Everyone should think


of his detective team as the critical
factor in making an arrest in the
case. According to him, Detective
Larry Holborow, who handled the
case, made it his priority to find the
suspect and close the case.
"He did a great job on this
case," said the chief. "It was a
tremendous job apprehending the
suspect."


about what they are going to do
after the storm if they do lose their
home.
Think of places and family or
friends where you could go in this
worst-case scenario. Make sure
that you have insurance and that
any needed repairs had been
made to your homes before hand.
The key to the destruction of
homes is the removal of your roof
or a loose patch that may let air in.
When the roof blows off, it
destroys the home. So make
plans ahead and ensure that you
will be as safe as possible during
hurricane season.

Engineering firm says dike failure misrepresented


By Pete Gawda
INI FLORIDA
LAKE OKEECHOBEE The
condition of the Herbert Hoover
Dike may not be as critical as one
might be led to believe.
A press release dated June 6
from BCI Engineering, is head-
lined "Herbert Hoover Dike failure
being misrepresented". BCI is the
engineering firm that released the
recent report predicting the dike
has a 50 percent chance of failure
within the next four years.
In the press release, Les
Bromwell, principal engineer for
BCI Engineers & Scientists, Inc.,
with offices throughout Florida,
said that extensive studies in the
mid-1990s by the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers produced scientifical-
ly calculated probabilities of dike
failure caused by critical seepage
conditions and rising lake levels.
"Contrary to statements that


the lake is safe up to a level of 21
feet, the Corps' own data show
that failure probabilities start to
rise significantly at 17 feet," said
Mr. Bromwell. "The failure proba-
bility at 17 feet is 10 percent but
with just a one-foot rise to 18 feet,
the probability increases to 45 per-
cent. At 21 feet and higher, the
probability is 100 percent."
A chart produced by the Corps
of Engineers shows details of the
failure probabilities at various
locations around the lake for
water levels ranging from 14 to 27
feet. The chart is based on hun-
dreds of individual computer runs
described in more than 250 pages
of the Corps' 1999 Major Rehabili-
tation Report (MRR). Thirteen
reaches, or sections, of the dike
are evaluated as well as a "Com-
bined Probability" showing the
total probability of a dike failure
based on lake levels.
Mr. Bromwell has urged emer-


agency planners to familiarize
themselves with this chart and act
accordingly. His concern is that
effective evacuation plans must be
developed based on these scientif-
ic risk probabilities, not on
hearsay or safety claims by
spokespeople or uninformed citi-
zens. Mr. Bromwell also cautioned
that the critical lake levels are not
those normally seen on Lake
Okeechobee, but rather flood lev-
els that can result from periods of
high rainfall and winds accompa-
nying hurricanes.
However, Steve Duba, chief
engineer for the Jacksonville dis-
trict of the U. S. Corps of Army
Engineers (COE) takes issue with
the word "misrepresented". He
said the COE did not dispute the
facts in the press release or in the
report upon which it was based.
The information in the report was
based on data supplies by COE.
The press release included a


mathematical table listing proba-
bilities of dike failure as the lake
rose from 14 to 27 feet. At 18 feet,
the table showed a 45 and a half
percent chance of failure.
While not disputing the statis-
tics, Mr. Duba said those statistics
need to be taken into context.
It is a fact that all earthen levees
suffer from seepage, according to
Mr. Duba.
The statistics in the table, he
said, were based on the assump-
tion that seepage was undetected
and allowed to get worse and
worse. He said such a situation
was not likely but possible in the
face of COE's vigorous inspection
program and the fact that COE
takes the situation seriously.
At 16 and half feet, COE begins
daily inspections of certain areas
of the dike. As soon as seepage is
detected, it is repaired.
"We don't like to see the lake
level at 18 feet to start with: he


Construction to include public access


THE EVERGLADES Some
stormwater treatment areas are
already open for wildlife viewing
and hunting; similar opportunities
are planned for.reservoirs, other
stormwater treatment areas.
Increasing water storage and
treatment options through the con-
struction of large-scale reservoirs
and constructed wetlands are
essential components of Ever-
glades restoration. Along with the
environmental benefits these facili-
ties will provide such as major
projects under way now along the
St. Lucie Canal, Caloosahatchee
River and Everglades Agricultural
Area they also create increased
opportunities for recreationaluse
by outdoor enthusiasts.
"Making sure the public is able
to enjoy public lands is a state of


Florida legislative mandate, a top
priority of the Governor and Cabi-
net and a solid commitment of the
South Florida Water Management
District," said District Governing
Board member Michael
Collins."Through several years of
extensive work with the public, this
commitment has become a reality
on hundreds of thousands of acres
of District-owned lands."
The District Governing Board
approved a proactive policy in 2004
designed to ensure access to Ever-
glades restoration lands. A series of
public workshops and public
meetings ensured that hunters,
fishermen, hikers, birdwatchers
and other nature-based activists
had the opportunity to comment
and provide feedback. Recognizing
that any proposed public usage


must first and foremost be compat-
ible with restoration goals, the
.agency developed the Public
Access and Recreational Use Poli-
cy. This workshop continues to
meet quarterly to provide public
input to recreation decisions on
district lands.
The recreation policy specifies
that the permitting, design and
construction phase of all restora-
tion projects must also include
public access along with the fund-
ing to provide facilities for a variety
of nature-based recreational activi-
ties provided such uses are con-
sistent with the project's restora-
tion purposes. A phased-in,
step-by-step process ensures that
planned recreation activities grow
over time in a manner compatible
with the projects purpose. Recre-


ation should start after project con-
struction is complete and the facili-
ty is operational for some reason-
able time.
For example, the 40,000 acres of
stormwater treatment areas built
to reduce phosphorus levels in
water before it flows into the Ever-
glades went through a period of
operations and monitoring before
being opened up to the public. The
current stormwater treatment area
recreation has grown successfully
over the last several years. New
designs for public access sites will
be built in 2007. Not only are these
constructed wetlands now suc-
cessfully removing excess phos-
phorus, they have also become
some of the most popular bird-
watching and duck-hunting areas
in the nation.


asserted.
He mentioned the fact that COE
is currently working to revise lake
level regulations. This revision is
likely to result in COE maintaining
the lake at a lower level.
The greatest risk would be at
the southern end of the lake. The
dike has been divided by COE into
segments called Reaches. They are
not numbered consecutively, but


Reaches 1, 2, and 3 are at the
southern end of the lake. Those
three Reaches formed the basis for
the statistics in the press release.
Most of Okeechobee County is
contained in Reach 5. When Mr.
Duba was in Okeechobee May 25,

Can You Hear Me Now? A strange request shows priorities


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Many of us hear his voice every
day, and yet we don't know his
name. His voice is heard over 27
million times a day by people all
over the world. His name is
Elwood Edwards and he gives us
those three special words we all
love to hear. No, not "I love you",
but "You've got mail!"
In 1989, a little-known outfit
called Quantum Computer Ser-
vices had an online service called
Q-Link. The company's CEO
wanted to add a voice to its user
interface. Edwards' wife was
working for the company and
suggested her husband. Edwards,
whose career had been in radio
and TV, agreed to record four
phrases: "Welcome!"; "File's
done"; "Goodbye"; and, of
course, "You've got mail!" Quan-
tum changed its name to America
Online and Edwards' voice
debuted on AOL in October of
1989. The rest, as they say, is histo-
ry.
Psalm 29 talks about another
voice that is heard by millions
each day: The voice of the Lord is
over the waters; the God of glory
thunders. The voice of the Lord is
powerful; the voice of the Lord is
full of majesty. The voice of the
Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord
breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
The voice of the Lord flashes forth
flames of fire. The voice of the
Lord shakes the wilderness. The
voice of the Lord causes the oaks
to whirl, and strips the forest bare.
Do you catch the meaning?
The voice of the Lord is powerful
beyond words. Remember how
God created the world? He spoke!
"Let there be light." And behold
there was light. The voice of God,
powerful enough to bring cre-
ation into existence, yet some
hear it not. Some hear it and rec-
ognize it not.


Billy Graham was once asked
what had been the best experi-
ence of his entire ministry. Gra-
ham didn't hesitate in his answer:
"By far the greatest joy of my life
has been my fellowship with
Jesus. Hearing Him speak to me,
having Him guide me, sensing His
presence with me and His power
through me. This has been the
highest pleasure of my life!"
Many of us know what he was
talking about. God's voice-able
to create a universe, able to heal
any hurt, able to turn a life around
and make it whole. God does
speak-not necessarily in a dra-
matic voice that is audible, but
through the quietness of our own
hearts. God speaks a word of
hope, a word of encouragement,
and every once in awhile, a word
ofchallenge.
A young man lost his job and
didn't know which way to turn. So
he went to see a minister. The
man ranted about his problem,
clenched his fist and shouted,
"I've begged God to say some-
thing to help me. Tell me, pastor,
why doesn't God answer?"
The older man, who sat across
the room, replied with something
so hushed it was indistinguish-
able. The young man stepped
across the room, "What did you
say?"
The pastor repeated himself,
but again in a tone as soft as a
whisper. So the young man
moved closer until he was leaning
on the pastor's chair. "Sorry," he
said. "I still didn't hear you."
With their heads bent together,
the old minister spoke once more:
"God sometimes whispers," he
said, "so we will move closer to
hear Him."
Draw near to God. Hear God
speak to your deepest need. Hear
God affirm your life. Listen quietly.
Listen closely. Hear God speak
your name today.


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I received a strange request
one day from someone I didn't
know. He asked if 1 could
"undo" a baptism. Obviously,
there was more to this request
than a religious matter and I
asked him why he felt that bap-
tism wasn't wanted. He
explained to me that his girl-
friend had their child baptized
but he wasn't included in the
records and wanted to be listed.
"So" I thought, "This isn't about
baptism at all!" I recalled the
baptism. It was a shy mother
who wasn't married to the father
and didn't want his name
involved in case there would be
a custody battle someday in the
future. Now the father wanted to
be recognized and I agreed to
help him. In the course of our
meeting, I told him that bap-
tisms weren't "undone" but that
I would be glad to work to see
him recognized as the father to
the baby in question. I also told
him that I would be happy to
bless their marriage if they so
chose and he thanked me. Later
we changed the records and
added the father's name. I have
always believed that baptism is
not to be denied to someone
because of what their parents do
or do not do. If God told us to
"go and make disciples of all
nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the
Son and of the Holy Spirit
(Matthew 28:19)" it was
because the Lord wanted it to
.happen, and if He did, that was
good enough for me. I was more
impressed that day, though, by a
young man being concerned
about his fatherhood. I've


encountered those men who
wanted to deny their role and
obligation; here was someone
who wished otherwise and he
had my support. It was the Lord
who taught us
to pray "Our
Father...." and
who makes
use of that
image to
express a cer-
tain relation-
ship between
us and the one -
to whom we SamuelS.
pray. Prayers Thomas
go to the pro-
tector, the provider, the sustain-
er, the comforter, the guide, the
wise one, the initiator of life, to
the Heavenly Father. I have
shared with others my thoughts
on why Jesus chose to come
into this world by entering an
earthly home complete with
mother and father. Two parents
nurturing and taking a helpless,
dependent baby to the place
where He could go it on His
own; that's half shared by a
father and it's a vital enough half
that the Lord Himself chose to
make it a part of His earthly
experience. I don't suppose
many of us fathers think about
just what it is that we provide or
just how much we share
Joseph's chosen role with our
children, but we do. The Lord's
Prayer continues after we
address our Heavenly Father by
saying "...hallowed be thy
name..." Even God's name is
holy; that special identifier of
our Heavenly Father is revered in
His name too. Our earthly chil-
dren look up to us with a similar
reverence each time you hear a
child say "That's my dad!" and
defend, honor or remember


him. We take time.out on June
18 to remember that half of the
team that helps us grow from
helplessness and dependence to
adulthood and independence;
helps us become what we are.
We bear the imprints of our par-
enting for the rest of our lives
and need to be reminded of
them every so often. Father's
Day is one of those times and a
part of our heritage The Biblical
world is full of patriarchs, sym-
bols and fatherly roles for
humanity, there must have been
something about it that God
wanted us to know. Every now
and again I recall that earthly
parent who taught me some
things about life and sustained,
who gave me an idea about my
Heavenly Father by what He did
here for me. I think about that
father too, who wanted to be
included in his child's life and
named in baptism along with
the baby's mother. God had
planted something in him wor-
thy of being a father and I think
God supported him. I did too.

HCD gets land for hospital


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Palm
Beach County Health Care Dis-
trict (District)has finalized its
acquisition of 50 acres of land
near Belle Glade for the con-
struction of a new hospital.
The district board made the
official motion at their regular
meeting held in Belle Glade last
week.
"What's in front of us here is
something that everybody's


wanted for many, many years,"
said Richard Machek, state rep-
resentative and new member of
the District board.
With all of the major hurdles
being passed, the District now
looks forward to finalizing all
planning and design details
prior to construction.
The Health Care District,
after many months of back and
forth discussions with PRIDE,
who held possession of the
land, was finally able to reach
common ground with the com-


pany.
To offset the lost revenue that
PRIDE claimed it would be los-
ing in giving up the land, the dis-
trict agreed to use PRIDE as one
of its supplier of goods and serv-
ices.
The stipulation states that the
District will use PRIDE's goods
and services when it provides a
cost-feasible alternative for pur-
chases.
The agreement will continue
until the point that the district
reaches the $750,000 mark.


Pitching in: Recovery efforts in the Glades


INIJose Zaragoza
The Community Development Foundation, based in West Palm Beach, is conducting an
outreach effort in the Glades area to help victims of last year's hurricanes with repairs.
Homeowners are asked to buy materials and secure all necessary permits, while the
organization offers help in free labor..The Community Development Foundation is fin-
ishing its tour of the area after ten days of work here.


The District had made an ini-
tial offer of $250,000, a figure
that PRIDE did not take serious-
ly.
The state of Florida, as
expected, also approved the
transfer of land.
Board members were happy
that the new hospital now
seems to be a certainty.
"The community is as
responsible for bringing this
into being as anyone else," said
David Goodlett, chair of the dis-
trict-board.


After the hospital was sold
back to the district from a pri-
vate company who found it dif-
ficult to operate in the area, the
District agreed to consider a
replacement hospital. Years
before the District, under a dif-
ferent administration, promised
to build a new hospital.
Bryan Cross, a member of
the local hospital board, said,
"People in the Glades, we're

BELLE GLADE A local store
owner decided he wasn't going
to be the victim of a robbery last
week.
After three suspects shoved
him to the ground and took his
rnone', the man pulled out a
gun and followed them out of
his store, shooting and hitting
one twice.
The incident happened on
June 16, at about 3:30 p.m.
According to the Belle Glade
Police Department, that's when
three suspects entered Lake
Supermarket on Ave. A; a small,
privately owned grocery store.
The suspects looked around
the store, behaving like any
other group of customers, and
grabbed a soda. When they
took the merchandise to the


front counter, and the store
owner rang them up for the pur-
chase, they pushed him to the
floor and began to grab money
from the open cash register.
They hurriedly got the
money and started to flee from
the scene.
The store owner then
reached for his gun, which was
tucked away in one of the store
counters, and opened fire on
the suspects.
Some of the suspects
dropped the money on the floor
and ran outside.
When the last of the suspects
dropped a bundle of the money
on the sidewalk outside of the
store, the owner ordered the
suspects to stop, firing at them
when they continued to run.
He hit one of the suspects,
