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


INI,'Jose 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 iiospital. 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,

pulls animal



into a canal


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

BELLE GLADE Police offi-
cials are urging residents to be
safe and practice good sense
when walking near the many
canals in the area.
The directive comes after a
dog weighing nearly 50 pounds
was dragged into the canal by a
large alligator roaming the'
area.
Police received a call from
... the. owner, of the dog 'A\_i]nes.

According t, him, his d'Jog, a:
fairly large-sized animal, had
been walking by the bank of
the canal on Southwest 11th


Street when an alligator came
up from the water to snatch
him up.
When it reached out to grab
the dog, the alligator revealed
itself to be anywhere from
seven to eight feet not the
largest alligator, but big enough
to, pull the dog into the water
with a single bite.
Interim Chief Calipto GCn-
zalez made it to the scene in
time to still see bubbles in the
water from the attack.
Tiaps and lures \\'erie us-ed
:'to'catch the alligator, but efforts

Store owner shoots


a robbery suspect


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
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
money, 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,

A store owner at this small grocery store last week thwarted a robbery attempt when he
pulled out a weapon and fired at the three suspects, wounding one.

Recycling old tires
From the Editors of E/The Envi-
ronmental Magazine
Dear EarthTalk: Can old tires
be recycled? If so, where, and
what is the recycled material used
for? George, Rockville, MD
Old tires can indeed be recy-
cled, and thanks to concerted
efforts by state and provincial
governments from 'coast-to-
coast, as many as 80 percent of
them are these days across North
America. While some of these
old tires are remanufactured into
new tires, others are used in a
wide variety of applications
including railroad ties, rubber-
modified asphalt, athletic sur-
faces, insulation, plastic/rubber
blends used in a variety of prod-
ucts, even fuel.
The world's first tires were
made entirely out of natural rub-
ber, but the Southeast Asian
forests where the plants grew
could only produce so much. By
World War II most tires were
composed primarily of synthetic
rubber made from petroleum
products. Up until the 1960s, tires
were routinely recycled and bro-
ken down'for use in making new
tires. But when imported oil got
cheaper, demand for recycled
synthetic rubber fell, and caches
of old tires with nowhere to go-
most landfills, won't accept
them-began to sully landscapes
across North America. These old
tire stockpiles became havens for
pests and mosquitoes, and would
even occasionally burst into
flames and belch noxious chemi-
cals into the air.
Beginning in the mid-1990s,
state and provincial governments
in the U.S. and Canada led the
charge in mandating and funding
tire recycling efforts. In doing so


they helped spur the markets for
reprocessed synthetic rubber that
exist today. Now thousands of
companies across North America
specialize in turning recycled syn-
thetic rubbers into useful new
products.
American consumers looking
to offload old tires should take a
gander at the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's (EPA's)
"Management ,of Scrap Tires"
website to find tire recycling cen-
ters near them. Canadians can
turn to the website of the Canadi-
an Association of Tire Recycling
Agencies (CATRA) to find out
where to take used tires in any
province, including even the
remote Yukon Territory.
The EPA also offers free Busi-

ness Planning Guides for those
who might be looking to start a
tire recycling or re-manufacturing
business. The website Scrap Tire
News also provides a wealth of
knowledge on different ways to
get started.
Despite this encouraging
progress, North America still faces
a backlog of hundreds of millions
of old tires, quickly piling up out-
side filling stations and in back-
yards near you. The EPA estimates
that 290 million scrap tires, are
generated annually, representing
two percent of all solid waste, and
that some 265 million are sitting
in stockpiles right now. At the very
least, we could all take the advice
of Participating in Nature:
Thomas J. Elpel's Field Guide to
Primitive Living Skills and turn our
old tires into "sandals with a
50,000 mile warranty!"

he said.
Commissioner Ward suggested
the coalition lean on the U. S. Army
Corps of Engineers (COE) to main-
tain lower lake levels in order to
help the aquatic plant life. (Plants
filter the water and provide safe
havens for fish.) He also advocated
subsidizing commercial fisherman
to remove nonnative invasive fish.
He proposed mechanical harvest-
ing of unwanted vegetation in
place of chemicals. Restoring
native vegetation was also promot-
ed.
The plan also proposed a pilot
project at a problem basin such as
Taylor Creek/Nubbin Slough to
reduce phosphorous. concentra-
tions entering the lake. Dredging
mud from.the lake bottom was
included and replanting native
plants.
"Cleaning up Lake Okeechobee
is a priority to this, board," said
Commissioner Ward.
Although costs have not yet
been determined, general funding
ideas were discussed including a
tax increase by SFWMD of 0.1 mil.
Funds would be earmarked solely
for Lake Okeechobee cleanup.
(One mil equals $1 for every $1,000


of assessed value.) The current
SFWMD tax rate, unchanged for
many years, is 0.7 mils: It was said
that an additional 0.1 mil assess-
ment would raise approximately
$65 million peryear.
"We cannot support a tax
increase," said Osceola County
Commissioner Ken Smith. "I think
this is bigger than 16 counties. The
Everglades belong to everybody."
"Can we ask someone else to fix
our problem?" countered Commis-
sioner Ward.
Other commissioners were in
favor of an additional tax.
"We need to act quickly and
start with us," said Commissioner
Sarah Heard of Martin County.
Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Warren Newell suggested
forming a subcommittee to review
funding sources. He said that with
the counties helping fund the pro-
gram, more respect from state and
federal agencies was likely.
Ernie Barnett, director of
SFWMD's office of policy and legis-
lation, felt it might be difficult to get
approval for a tax increase.
After some debate, the coalition
formed a funding sub-committee
consisting of Commissioners
Ward, Heard, Newell and Commis-
sioners Ray Judah, Lee Co., and Joe
Smith, St. Lucie Co. to work with
SFWMD.
Okeechobee Co. Commission-
er Clif Betts said regardless of fund-
ing source, people need to be
assured that administrative costs
will be low.
Dennis Duke,. chief of the
restoration program branch for
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(COE) local district reported on the
Herbert Hoover Dike. He noted that
seepage had first been observed in
1986.
"We do not disagree with any
technical data," he said of the
recent independent expert report
on the condition of dike, commis-
sioned by the state. (The report
was based on COE reports.) "Our
analysis of the condition has not
changed."
-He said the lake level was cur-
rently being lowered by intermit-
tent pulse releases and that COE is
working on a revised lake regula-


tion schedule called Water Supply
and Environment (WSE). Mr. Duke
detailed several alternate WSEs. All
call for maximum releases at 17.25
feet. This is lower than the current
18.5 feet. The alternate schedules
also call for a lower minimum level
for the lake. Several public meet-
ings are legally required prior to
finalization in December 2006.
Effective date for the revised WSE is
January next year.
Mr. Duke said COE has an
aggressive dike inspection program
with daily inspections when the
lake level reaches 16.5. Repair
material is ready at 20 locations
around the dike and contractors

and COE are ready to respond to
any emergency, he said.
Mr. Duke emphasized that; co :,
trary to what had recently been
reported, repair work on the dike
near Port Mayaca has not stopped.
He said there was money to com-
plete this section and start on the
next section. He predicted it would
cost between $5 billion and $10 bil-
lion to bring the dike up to current
safety standards for a dam.
Recently, controversy has raged
over the COE's refusal to release
maps to the public which show the
extent of flooding if the dike fails.
The maps were finally released to
local emergency management offi-
cials, but COE cited security rea-
sons for their own refusal to make
them public.
That policy has now changed.
Mr. Duke stated local emergency
management officials may release
the maps to the public if they so
desire. He insisted that COE would
not compromise on public safety.
Larry Carter, assistant deputy
director of operations and mainte-
nance for SFWMD, estimated 10
years for completion of necessary
dike repairs. He urged voters to
pressure congress to speed funding
of the work.
David Roach of the Florida
Inland Navigation District (FIND)
also spoke. FIND is a special taxing
district concerned with the naviga-
tion channel in Lake Okeechobee.
He said that FIND can assist with
funding for general muck removal
from the lake.
Don Fox, biologist with the


Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC), present-
ed a dismal outlook for fishing on
the lake. Because of the sediment
stirred up by two years of hurri-
canes, the number of black crappie
and largemouth bass in the lake are
at record lows, he said.
Better news was reported by
Susan Gray, Ph.D. deputy director
of SFWMD's watershed manage-
ment department, in her update on
SFWMD projects. The district is
studying the feasibility of deep well
injection to store excess water. She
reported that the Lykes Basinger
Groves water storage project is
operational. The conceptual design
for an 800-acre Seminole Brighton
reservoir/stormwater treatment
area (STA) has been completed. (A-
STA is a planted area designed to
hold water to remove phospho-
rous and pollutants before it enters
a lake or canal.) Ribbon cutting cer-
emonies have recently been held
for the Nubbin Slough and Taylor
creek STAs. Over 35 projects relat-
ed to Lake Okeechobee and Ever-
glades improvement have been
completed and a total of $487.2
million is being spent on eight con-
struction projects now under way.
"We have a lot to do," Dr. Gray
said. "We are by no means
through, but we are working hard."
After debate, commissioners
passed resolution urging the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency to
maintain the requirements for strict
enforcement of the Federal Clean
Water Act and not exempt transfers
of water from one jurisdiction to
another from permitting require-
ments of the National Pollution Dis-
charge Elimination System. The
resolution stated that water trans-
fers without proper treatment to
meet water quality standards
would be detrimental to the Ever-
glades and the Indian River
Lagoon. Commissioners Ward,
Newell and Ken Smith voted-
against the resolution.
There was some discussion as
to how this would affect emer-
gency flood discharges. However,
Dr. Paul Gray of the Audubon Soci-
ety, contacted after the meeting,
said the resolution would not affect
emergency discharges.

Clutter often attracts


more clutter


Is your home more than 15
minutes worth of messy? If you
have lots of hot spots then I will
answer this question for you;
YES! You ask, what is a hot spot?
A hot spot is an area, when left
unattended will gradually take
over. My favorite analogy is of a
hot spot in a forest fire, if left
alone it will eventually get out of
hand and burn up the whole for-
est. This is what happens in our
homes. If left unattended, the
hot spot will grow and take over
the whole room as well as mak-
ing the house look awful. When
you walk into a room, the hot
spot is the first thing you see.
Your eyes are locked on it. CLUT-
TER ATTRACTS CLUTTER. If you
put one item on this flat surface
it attracts more items. Do you
have areas like this that continue
to grow if left alone? Does the
rest of the family see this as a
place to put things when they do
not want to put them where they
belong? It is our job to NIP this in
the bud. Get rid of that pile, find
the surface underneath, and
stop the Hot Spot from becom-
ing a raging Clutter inferno!
Our hotspots make our home
feel and look cluttered. Why is it
that we feel the need to fill up
every flat surface in our homes?
It is because there is an empty
place to put something down.
We walk in the door with our
arms loaded and are desperate
to unload; that is when we drop
things in the first clear spot we
find. It can be a chair, the count-
er top or even the floor.
Let's look at why we are try-
ing to carry so much in the first
place. We don't want to make a
second trip to the car. Isn't that
funny; we weigh ourselves
down because we don't want to'
waste a few extra steps. I want
to change your attitude about
trying to carry too much and just
make one trip.
We could all use a few more
steps in our day. I have to walk
up one level to get to our front
door. If I come in through the
basement, I would have to climb
a flight of steps. It only takes a
short amount of time to get up
to the house and back down to

the car. Here is what I do when I
get out of my car. I gather up all
the trash and my purse or com-
puter and head to the door. Then
I go back to anything else that is
left in the car.
I do this with groceries too. I
take the refrigerated groceries
first and put it all away and go
back down for another load.
Every time I come in the house I
put everything away. This keeps
me from being overwhelmed. I
don't like to see my countertops
covered up with bags of gro-
ceries. I love coming into our
home and seeing clear counters.
When our flat surfaces are
covered up with stuff; we get
overwhelmed too. If my coffee
table is piled high with clutter, I
can't write. A messy desk is not
an example of a productive
mind. It is symptom of a clut-
tered mind. We have to stop and
clear off the hotspot to get the
clutter out of our minds so we
can think.
Our poor babies deal with
this problem too. They have so
much stuff in their bedrooms
that,they don't know what to
play with. Get rid of the cluitter
and find peace and help them to
enjoy their rooms. With less
stuff they will be able to better
concentrate.
With fewer things we will be
able to better focus on what we
need to do. Get rid of your clut-
ter and find peace in your home!

Salads are easy and fun to make all of the time"


Now is the time for all good
cooks to take FULL advantage of
amazing produce! You know
how good for you all those won-
derful, phytochemically, nutri-
tionally rich veggies are for your
health. Well, most everything is
at its peak right now.
If you're a little intimidated by
such a big assortment, let's start
with the easy button. You don't
need to know anything when
you press the easy button-you
just know it's going to be easy!
The easy button in my book is
the already bagged, ready to go
stuff sitting in the refrigerated
section of the produce depart-
ment, just waiting to be grabbed
and taken home.
All that is required is from
you is to obtain the bag (eyeball
it first to make sure it looks
good, then check for expiration
dates), pay your money (yeah,
this stuff isn't the cheapest way
to go, but think of it this way-
potato chips cost $2.49 a pound
and provide nothing nutritional-
ly) and go home and use it.
There are usually recipes on the
bag and I've got some ideas
here, too, on how to use these
convenient veggies.
With this stuff, it's easy to go
recipe-less and build beautiful,
nutrient-rich salads to suit just
about everyone's palate. Just
grab a bag and follow. these
great tips for quick and easy
meals and side dishes.
Make a slaw. You can go
traditional and empty a bag of
ready-to-go slaw into your salad
bowl, add 1/2 cup of low-fat
mayo, a teaspoon of honey, a
splash of cider vinegar and
you're ready to roll.
Make ethnic slaw. For fun,

instead and add 1/2 cup low-fat
mayo, a splash of rice wine vine-
gar, a shot of sesame oil and gar-
nish with a little chopped
cilantro and honey roasted
peanuts and you're good to go.
Chips and dip. Those great,
big carrot chips are a whole lot
better for you than the potato
kind! Open up a bag and serve
with your favorite low-fat dip
instead and you'll save yourself a
whole bag of calories!
Stir it up. For a quick and
easy vegetarian stir fry meal,
chop some green onions and
press a little garlic and put it in a
wok, already heated with a little
oil. Add your bag of stir fry, a
dash of soy sauce, some ginger
and bean sprouts and you have a
good meal. Put in on brown rice
and you have a great meal!
Tofu tagalong. There's tofu
in the produce department!
Maybe you'd like a few chunks
of tofu in your stir fry? Go
ahead- don't be timid. Tofu can
be fun.
Carrot slaw. Much better
than the kind your school cafete-
ria served. Mix a bag of shred-
ded carrots with 1/2 cup low-fat
mayo, a handful of raisins and a
generous pinch of chopped wal-
nuts. Delicious!
My favorite salad. In a large
bowl, toss together from differ-


ent bags, whatever you have on
hand (and I use a handful of the
basic greens per person to make
mine): field greens, baby
spinach, shredded broccoli,
shredded cabbages, etc. (small-
er portions of the shredded
stuff). Add thinly sliced green
onion, a sprinkling df pine nuts,
a generous portion of sun-dried
tomato feta cheese crumbles,
and toss together with a simple
dressing of one pressed garlic
clove, two parts rice wine vine-
gar to one part olive oil. Toss

for flavors to meld (but not to.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
(Service) are looking to the public
for help in conserving the Florida
manatee population. The agen-
cies are encouraging boaters to
report accidental watercraft colli-
sions with Florida manatees
through a new joint effort.
Agency officials want people
to understand that conserving
manatees is the goal and boaters
can help by voluntarily reporting
incidents involving these animals.
Anyone who strikes a manatee or
observes a manatee being hit by
a boat should call the Commis-:
sion's Wildlife Alert hotline at 1-
888-404-3922. Boaters should be
prepared to provide the incident
location, weather conditions,
boat specifications, and other rel-
evant information.
"We want everyone to know
that people who are operating


their boat lawfully and responsibly
should not be afraid to report acci-
dental collisions with manatees,"
said Ken Haddad, Executive Direc-
tor of the Commission.
While the agencies continue
to try to minimize the number of
manatee deaths and injuries, the
goal and hope of this effort is that
the self-reporting of
manatee/boat collisions will
actually increase, with two signif-
icant benefits. Ongoing local,
state, and federal law enforce-
ment activities will continue
through the joint task forces.
The goals of this self-reporting
are two fold.
First, a quick response may
increase the chance of an injured
animal being rescued, treated suc-
cessfully, and ultimately returned
to their natural habitat.
Second, scientists can gain an
improved understanding of other
boat strikes. If scientists cap


OFF


match the marks on the animal
with the type of boat or propeller
causing the wound, it will pro-
vide a better understanding of
what kinds of boats, motors, or
other circumstances cause the
most problems for manatees. In
turn, this may allow adjustments
in management practices to pre-
vent such strikes from occurring
or even lead to future design
changes in boats. Presently, there
are only a handful of cases where
the vessel that struck a manatee
is actually known.

Local student accepts national honors


The United States Achieve-
ment Academy announced that
Jonteria Williams from Belle
Glade has been named a United
States National Award Winner in
Honor Roi.
This award is a prestigious


honor that very few students can
ever hope to attain. In fact, the
Academy recognizes fewer than
10 percent of all American high
school students.
Jonteria Williams, who
attends Lake Shore Middle


School, will appear in award by
Samina Zubin, a guidance coun-
selor at the school. She will also
appear in the United States
Achievement Academy's Official
Yearbook which is published
nationally.


Jonteria Williams is the
daughter of Theresa and John
Williams of Belle Glade. The
grandparents are Bernice
Boston of Belle Glade, and Bill
and Betty Williams, also of Belle
Glade.

PALM BEACH COUNTY -
Marking Florida's ongoing commit-
ment to Everglades restoration,
State Sen. David Aronberg, State
Rep. Richard Machek, and State
Rep. Shelley Vana joined Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) Secretary Colleen M.
Castille and South Florida Water
Management District Governing
Board Member Lennart E. Lindhal
to break ground on the fourth
Acceler8 project in just six months.
Part of the State's plan to fast
track the restoration of America's
Everglades, the $33.6 million
Water Preserve Area/Acme Basin
B Discharge Project near the vil-
lage of Wellington in Palm Beach
County will improve the quality of
water flowing into the Arthur R.
Marshall Loxahatchee National
Wildlife Refuge.
"The Acme Basin B Discharge
Project will divert stormwater
runoff north and to a treatment
wetland before flowing into the
Wildlife Refuge, leading the way for


water quality improvements," said
Secretary Castille. "The health of
this sensitive ecosystem will benefit
from additional reductions in phos-
phorus, expediting restoration and
allowing the native flora and fauna
to recover."
The Water Preserve Areas con-
sist of a series of five project com-
ponents adjacent to the Everglades
Water Conservation Areas in Palm
Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade
counties. As one of the compo-
nents, the Acme Basin B Discharge
Project will improve water quality
by diverting urban stormwater
runoff into the C-51 canal and away
from the Loxahatchee National
Wildlife Refuge. This critical project
will help to end all discharges into
the Refuge by December 2006.
"The Water Preserve Area proj-
ects remind us how close we really
are to the Everglades. For many
residents in Wellington, it is literally
in their backyards," said Lindahl.
"That's why it is so important for
South Florida residents to under-


stand that their actions really can
make a difference. You can either
contribute to the problem or con-
tribute to the solution."
The Acme Basin B Discharge
Project will include a new pump
station and improvements to the C-
1 canal, which will increase con-
veyance capacity and provide a
connection to the C-51 canal. A
new impoundment and second
pump station will provide tempo-
rary water storage for 1,028 acre-
feet of water the equivalent of
more than 500 Olympic-sized
swimming pools maintaining
flood protection in the local
drainage basin (Acme Basin B).
Announced by Governor
Bush in October 2004, Acceler8
is stepping up the pace of fund-
ing, design and construction to
complete eight critical Ever-
glades restoration projects over
seven years. At substantial sav-
ings to taxpayers, the projects
will restore 100,000 acres of wet-
lands, expand water treatment


areas by close to 29,000 acres
and provide 418,000 acre-feet of
additional water storage for
Everglades restoration a decade
ahead of schedule.
The Acme Basin B Discharge
Project is the fourth Acceler8 proj-
ect launched this year. The State
began expanding three treatment
wetlands and construction started
on the C-43 Caloosahatchee West
Storage Reservoir in February.
The C-44 (St. Lucie Canal) Reser-
voir/Stormwater Treatment Area
launched construction in March.
Under the leadership of Gover-
nor Bush, Florida has forged ahead
to implement the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan with
an investment of $1.3 billion and a
commitment for an additional $3.2
billion through the end of the
decade to clean up and restore the
famed River of Grass.

er8, visit www.evergladesnow.org.

Showdown in Steptown a success for NAACP


By Abigail Payne
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Glades
Area Youth NAACP, in partnership
with ACT-SO, held the first "Show-
down in Steptown" show last Sat-
urday, June 10, in the Auditorium
at Glades Central Community
High School in Belle'Glade.
"It was begun as a tradition
among the :youth group for
many years here," said Linda
Johnson, area director of the
NAACP Palm Beach County and
president of the Glades branch.


According to Ms. Johnson,
the step show was the brainchild
of Armaad Morman. Mr. Mor-
man saw the stepshow as a wor-
thy fund raising activity and an
event for the community. He
also hoped the event would
serve as another reason why
local youth should join the
NAACP.
The show brings together
many hard-working step and
dance groups. The performance
the night of the step show
delighted audiences with elabo-
rate dances and music.


The audience listened to per-
formances by Ladies of Essence,
Kappa League, Twenty Pearls,
Mysterious, X. L. Productions,
Dream Team, and J-Smoove and
Crew.
Accented by music and
strobe lights, the show's step-
ping routines were thunderous
and the dances impressive.
Alonzo Vereen read a poem
about the word "n--" and its
effects on the youth today; its.
true meaning and impact.
Overall the show was a suc-
cess. First place honors went to


X.L. Productions of Palm Beach,
with the Boys & Girls Club
Dream Team grabbing second
place.
The event raised approxi-
mately $1,400. The group was
pleasantly surprised to learn that
an anonymous donor matched
what they made and offered an
additional $1,400.
In total, the Glades Area
Youth NAACP earned about
$2,800 for their Showdown in
Steptown event. Plans are being
made to hold the event again
next year.

Florida Blue Crabs are always a favorite


TALLAHASSEE It is that
time of year again as summer
approaches so does the infa-
mous blue crab, the 10-legged
crustacean popular at picnics
and parties. The blue crab is a
funny site to behold, walking
sideways along the sand using
its three middle pairs of legs,
while its front bright blue pincer
claws are used, to defend itself
and grasp prey. The species
earns part of its Latin name, Call-
inectes, or "beautiful swimmer"
from its hind appendages, which
are broad and flat like paddles
and make the crab a remarkable
swimmer indeed.
Despite its fearsome appear-
ance and aggressive nature, the
blue crab is greatly cherished in
Florida. A whole fishing indus-
try, community and special
breed of crab fishermen have
developed around the harvest of
thousands of pounds of these
crustaceans. Crabmeat is one of
Florida's most versatile seafoods
and ranks high on the list of
seafood delicacies. It is also eco-
nomically one of Florida's most
important fisheries and the value
to the state exceeds $56 million
annually.
Whole blue crabs are sold
live or steamed. Sweet-tasting
crab meat is available both fresh
and pasteurized in the following
forms: lump, backfin, special,
claw and cocktail claw. Lump
crab meat or jumbo lump, is the
largest pieces of meat from the
body and also the most expen-
sive form of crabmeat. For over-
all elegance and visual appeal,
lump is the top choice. Backfin
crab meat is the pale ivory flakes
of white body meat and is subtle
in flavor. Backfin is best used for
crab cakes and it offers crab

meat other than the lump meat.
It's good for crab soups,
casseroles and dips. Claw and
leg crab meat have a darker, red-
dish color and is more flavorful.
It is best for soups, pastas, and
dips. Claw meat is a favorite of
many chefs because it stands up
to bold seasonings that would
overpower the tender succulent
lump grades. Cocktail claws are
bite-sized morsels perfect for
appetizers. No matter which
form you choose, blue crab
meat is known for its delicious
flavor and delicate texture.
Live blue crabs should have
some leg movement when pur-
chased. Refrigerate in a breath-
able container such as a bag or
cardboard box, and do not store
directly on ice. Fresh blue crab
meat should be stored in the
coldest part of your refrigerator
and used within seven to 10
days. Pasteurized blue crab
meat in unopened containers
can be stored up to six months
in the coldest part of your refrig-
erator; Once opened, pasteur-
ized crab meat needs to be used
within three days.
SSoft-shell blue crab is a spe-
cial delicacy produced under the
watchful eye of a "crab peeler."
Blue crabs prepare for growth
by breaking free from the old
shell, swelling up and harden-
ing. To capture soft-shell blue
crabs, ready to molt crabs or
"peelers" are held in water-filled
trays until their old shell has
shed. The newly emerged crab is
cleaned and packed for ship-
ment. Soft-shell blue crabs can
be purchased fresh or frozen.
Nutritionally, soft-shell blue


crabs are low in fat, saturated fat
free, high in calcium and a good
source of iron. When purchas-
ing soft-shells be sure and test
the crab's shell to make sure it is
very pliable. Fresh soft-shell blue
crab should be refrigerated and
cooked within two days.
Whether you are in the mood
for sauteed, steamed or broiled,
Florida blue crabs are perfect to
satisfy your seafood appetite.
The tasty meat can be described
as succulent, rich and creamy,
melt in your mouth seafood.
Blue crab is a delicacy rich in
vitamins and low in fat. Be sure
and ask for "Fresh from Florida"
blue crabs. i

focused its attention on the case,
and canvassed the area in search of
clues as to the identity of the want-
ed suspect.
Due to the nature of the case,
officials wanted to find a resolution
to the crime.
Detectives say that earlier this
month, the suspect pushed the vic-
tim to the ground, the victim's
wheelchair colliding hard with the
street, and then stole his wallet
from his shirt pocket.
Apparently, the victim had just
cashed his monthly Social Security
check at the Quick Stop in South
Bay when he was attacked. In total,
the suspect made awaywith $700.
Detective Scarso began to inves-
tigate the case after learning of the
attack, and got a break when a wit-


cerned about their safety.
"We have kids walking by all
the time," said Chief Gonzalez.
"I'm just worried because of the
kids. We're not going to stop look-

careful and watchful with their
children playing near canals. Hav-
ing attacked once before, there
remains a possibility that the alli-
gator may attack again.

ness stepped forward with infor-
mation about the suspect.
Before then, all the department
had to go on was a grainy still
photo taken from the store's sur-
veillance camera. In the four
frames that were captured, the sus-
pect's image is hard to define, so
detectives had to rely on the com-
munity for help.
The witness was able to pick
out the suspect and a warrant was
issued for his arrest.
Jessie Dortch, 23, of Belle
Glade, was arrested by Deputy
George Cabrera, charged with
strong arm robbery and grand theft
for his alleged role in the robbery.
"The cooperation between the
detective bureau and the road
patrol led to a successful ending in
the case," said Sgt. Cayson.
Dortch had been on probation
for another burglary, according to
the sheriff's office.

Seacoast National Bank has new Web site


New name, new image, new
website, Seacoast National Bank
has redesigned its Web site for a
refreshed brand identity.
"Giving the website an updat-
ed look is part of an extensive
process that comes with the ter-
ritory when a $2.5 billion pub-
licly traded regional bank with
41 branches changes its name,"
said Susan Bergstrom, senior
vice president of marketing.
The site, located at www.sea-
coastnational.com, receives on
average 3,500 hits a day. When


the bank completed its merger
with Big Lake National Bank on
June 5, the number of visitors to
the site nearly doubled to just
over 6,000 for the first two weeks
in June, creating another oppor-
tunity to create brand awareness
in the newly gained South/Cen-
tral Florida market.
The new website connects
Seacoast National Bank cus-
tomers to a wealth of personal
and business banking services.
The Bank's free online banking
service, available 24/7, provides


customers with balance
inquiries, wire transfers, cash
management, online bill pay,
online applications, calculators,
an online mortgage application
and the most recent addition,
online check images.
Over 20 percent of Seacoast
National Bank personal banking
clients and 15 percent of its busi-
ness clients bank online. Of
online users, 16 percent take
advantage of the free online bill
pay service.
"As online services such as


banking and bill pay continue
rise in popularity, marketing our
website and the online banking
tools are critical components to
providing value to our cus-
tomers' banking experience,"
said Ms. Bergstrom.
The operating arm of Sea-
coast Banking Corporation of
Florida (NASDAQ: SBCF) Sea-
coast National Bank has 41
branches in Florida and $2.5 bil-
lion in assets, and is one of the
largest independent banks head-
quartered in Florida.


CCCS has online Spanish bankruptcy services


Submitted to INI
Michael O'Keefe (Lab Director) and Pat Mason (Auxiliary
President) check out the digital scale which was purchased
with the help of money raised by the Ladies Auxiliary at
Hendry Regional Medical Center.

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
CredAbility Network, is now offer-
ing online bankruptcy counseling
and education in Spanish. This.
unique, completely interactive
service is available through the
agency's Web sites: www.ccc-
sinc.org and at www.cccsenes-
panol.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
counseling 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
provide bankruptcy counseling,"
said Jessica Cecere, president of
CCCS of Palm Beach County.
"Helping bilingual consumers
with critical financial issues in
their first language is an important
part of serving our service deliv-
ery model," Ms. Cecere said.
Increased service to bilingual
consumers is a logical progres-
sion for CCCS; the agency began
counseling 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 edu-
cation course online in Spanish,"
said Christie Hardcastle, Hispanic
outreach coordinator for CCCS
Palm Beach County. Credit coun-
seling within 180 days of filing for
bankruptcy protection and pre-
discharge education are both
required by new law.
Bankruptcy pre-filing counsel-
ing costs $50 per household and
is available online, via telephone
or in-person in 17 offices in Cred-
Ability service areas of north
Georgia, south Florida, east Ten-
nessee and central Mississippi.
The pre-discharge education


course also costs $50 per house-
hold and is available online or in
classroom settings in CredAbility
service areas.
As a.leading national provider
of bankruptcy counseling and
education, CCCS is setting the
standard for bilingual service
online, over the telephone and
through its branch office network
and community education sites.
For the past ten years, CCCS Palm
Beach County has been providing
Hispanic outreach services, with
support from community and
financial organizations. The Cred-
Ability Network served more than
132,000 people in 2005; about 10
percent of this education and
counseling was in Spanish.


CLEWISTON Thanks to
'the Ladies Auxiliary at Hendry
,Regional Medical Center, the lab
.now has some additional state-
'of-the-art equipment. The Auxil-
iary has raised more than $6,000
towards the purchase of:
S e. Phlebotomy Drawing
'Chair: The new phlebotomy
chair enables patients to sit
more comfortably in a sturdy,
larger chair as their blood is
drawn;
Electronic Cell Counter:
'The replacement cell counter is
being used to manually identify
'and count white blood cells;
High/low thermometers:
Two thermometerswere placed
in the different locations of the
laboratory to monitor the range
of the room temperature; and
*.,Digital scales: This new.
scale is being used to weigh
specimens, chemicals, and
blood products.
The Auxiliary uses proceeds
from the gift shop to make pur-
chases for the hospital. In prior
years, purchases have included
surgical blood pressure moni-
tors and bed-chairs for family
members. If you visit the hospi-


tal lobby, you can admire their-
purchase from last year the
beautiful new furniture, lamps
and other amenities.
Consisting of approximately
ten volunteers who provide their
services as frequently as their
schedules will allow, these
Women are recognized primarily
by their pink smocks. They work
behind the scenes and are not
often in the limelight. During
National Volunteer Week, the
hospital hosts an Auxiliary Tea,
and employees rotate through to
thank ihe volunteers for their
hard work and contributions.
Although they .are located
most often in the gift shop, the
Auxiliary has offered their assis-
tance in other departments as
'well. They may be seen folding
towels, providing directions, or
making copies. These volun-
teers represent our hospital in
the most cheerful, helpful and
friendly manner. Patients; visi-
tors, hospital personnel, and
other volunteers are treated with
courtesy and respect all
times. The Auxiliary is truly an
asset to Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center;


Harbor Federal helps families keep in touch


FORT PIERCE Keeping with
its strong commitment of service
to each of the communities it
serves, Harbor Federal's 40 branch
locations are helping local, families
stay in touch with loved ones serv-
ing in the Armed Forces overseas.
Mary Rose Cuoco, Assistant
Vice President and Branch Man-
ager of Harbor Federal's Virginia
Avenue office in Fort Pierce
worked with Garry Schwartz, a
local veteran, and the Fort Pierce
Police Athletic League (PAL) to
bring the program into South
Florida.
"If they [soldiers and their fami-
lies] can't be giving each other a
hug at night," said Ms. Cuoco, "at
least they can call each other."
In late March 2006, Ms. Cuoco
arranged for 14 Harbor Federal
branch locations in Martin and St.
Lucie Counties to become drop off
points for donated cell phones.
The program has been received so
well that Ms. Cuoco and Harbor
Federal extended the program to
all 40 Harbor Federal locations in
eight contiguous counties in East
Central Florida last week.
The collection drive is part of a
nationwide program started by


two Massachusetts children, 13-
year-old Brittany Bergquist and her
12-year-old brother Robbie. After
hearing a news report about a
local soldier who ran up a massive
phone bill calling home from Iraq,
the children decided they wanted
to help. They used $21.00 of piggy
bank money and collected snack
money from school friends to
open a bank account. The South
Shore Savings Bank, Hanover, MA
donated another $500.00 to help
them get started.
The cell phones and beepers
are collected weekly at Harbor


Federal offices. Schwartz picks
them up from the Virginia Avenue
location, packages them, and then
sends them to a recycling compa-
ny. The money made from selling
the phones and parts buys 60-
minute prepaid phone cards. After
all the minutes are used up, the
cards can be refilled online at the
program's web site at www.cell-
phonesforsoldiers.com. "To date
over 637 phones and 600 chargers
have been collected which
equdaes to more.than 200 phone
cards," said Schwartz.

Parables show the call to all of us Doc Savvy's Pet Corner


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There is a Biblical example
about two sons; one who tells
his father he will do some work
in the family vineyard but does-
n't do it, and the other who tells
his father he won't do what is
asked but then goes ahead and
does it. Matthew 21:28ff). After-
ward, the question was asked
was "Which of the two did what
his father wanted? (v.31)" and
everyone affirms "The first!"
Actions speak louder than
words!
It is curious that the Lord
Himself was asked to help out at
a wedding but refused to give a
hand. He attended a wedding
with his mother and disciples at
Cana (John 2:lff) and his moth-
er tells Jesus "They have no
more wine." This is a simple
statement of fact as it is written;
no call to do anything, just
telling about something that has
occurred. Jesus, however, takes
it to mean that He should do
something, and He tells His
mother "Dear woman, why do


you involve me? ... My time has
not yet come (v.4)." It seems
that what was expressed as a
simple state- 4_IA .
ment has been
heard as a
request to do
something. .. t.
The request
brings a ques-
tion with a
meaning of its'
own "I don't
want to partic- SamuelS.
ipate." Thomas
Now, the following verse tells
about Jesus' mother once more,
simply ignoring the rebuff and
telling the servants "Do whatev-
er He tells you.''
It seems that the lady has a
son who has a need pointed out
to Him but He says He won't do
anything. Then, Jesus says, "Fill
the jars with water" with each of
them holding 20 to 30 gallons of
water. Soon, there is enough
wine to quench the thirst of quite
a crowd, and good stuff too!
In spite of the rebuff and
unwillingness, the miracle occurs;
the Son does the will of the moth-
er in this lesson and helps.


I suspect the father in the first
story from Matthew would have
known his sons well enough to
know which one would help out
and which one would not; and it
was evident in the story of
Mary's son that He would help
out too. She is a mother
endowed with some wisdom;
she ignores the protests and the
complaints because she knows
how things will come out.
All of us listen to people com-
plain about taxes, or about the
high price of gas, or about not
wanting to do something and all
the while knowing the taxes will
be paid, or the gas will be
bought, or the job will get done
around the house.
There is another parable
when Jesus tells Peter to put
down his fishing nets for a catch.
Peter says "Master, we've
worked hard all night and
haven't caught anything."(Luke
5:5) but then adds "But because
you say so, I will let down the
nets." The catch was over-
whelming and they had to call
others to help them bring it in.
There is something about
human nature here; we com-


There's no use in reinventing the wheel


plain, we bemoan, we belly-
ache, we show our frustration,
and then we act. The action
comes because we are asked to
do something by someone who
cares, or perhaps because we
see a greater need than our own,
or perhaps because it is a calling
and what we are really about.
The call comes and it appeals
to the Godly part in us; and we
are moved to overcome the less-
er, maybe more selfish part of
us. An urgent phone call that
comes in the early hours of the
morning or a call to provide
more than was budgeted for an
desperate need or rearranging a
schedule to accommodate
someone who is hurting; com-
mon to all of us and a testimony
to God being in us.
The passage about the wed-
ding in Canna has been a wit-
ness to me that even the Lord
Himself was not without His
moments of not wanting to
help; and someone at His side
who seemed to know Him bet-
ter than He knew Himself at that
moment. He saved the day; she
knew He would. How many
times I've been rewarded by the
"Thanks" or the grateful smile of
the person who took me a bit
out of my way. So have you, too!


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello
my name is Sara, and I'm thinking
about getting a little dog from the
pound. I am a professional and am
very dedicated to my field. My hus-
band is a professional too, and
works out of the home. He takes
care of so many of the every day
things in order to make my life easi-
er. He said he'd like a little dog too.
However, how do you know when
you are really ready for the respon-
sibilities of a little dog? We don't
want to make a rash choice.
Thanks for your time. Sara and
Josh.
Answer: Well hey! First of all I
want to say ... Your husband
sounds like a wonderful man!
Things sound like the two of you
really compliment each other.
Does Josh have a brother?
Ok now to answer your ques-
tion, taking on the responsibility of
a little dog is a lot more than just
kibble, walks and water. You have
to want to make the time for the
extra stuff. Stuff like time, attention
and love. All dogs need that to
enable them to grow. Just like kids!
The more you are able to give of

Pet of

the Week,

Page 19


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"There's no use reinventing
the wheel." Literally, it implies
that the wheel works so well that
there is no need to look for
something new to replace it. Fig-
uratively, we know it means that
for whatever situation we are
facing, there is no need to spend
time and effort redoing some-
thing that has already been
done, and done successfully.
Even though there's no point
in reinventing the wheel, it's not
to say that people don't keep try-
ing. The Patent and Trademark
Office in Alexandria, Virginia has
received thousands of applica-
tions for wheel patents over the
years. These applications
include pages and pages of
descriptions, detailed drawings,
etc. and often involve designs
that call for the production of a
lighter, stronger, and better han-
dling wheel. None of the appli-
cations received, however, are
for replacing the wheel. They
suggest making it from different
materials, connecting it differ-
ently, or even adding a
whatchamaycallit, but all of the
applications include a circular
apparatus that moves itself and
whatever might be connected to
it by rolling.
Some 2000 years ago, the
Apostle Paul shared with us
what keeps community moving
itself and rolling -It's found in
Ephesians 4:25-5:2, and like the
saying goes, "there's no point in
reinventing the wheel."
Yes, there are things we might
say differently today, but Paul's
prescription to, "be truthful, not


let the sun go down on our anger
and let the anger turn sinful, not
steal, work honestly, share with
the needy, not talk trash, deal
with others with kindness and
forgiveness, live a godly life, etc."
is the right
counsel for life
together in
community -
then and now.
Truth be
told, there are
a lot of people
who don't live
that way. We
only have to John
look at the Hicks
news stands or
watch the television to realize
that some people, politicians,
publications, and shows have
made trash-talk their currency.
Some have suggested that we
live in a society where the
wheels have come off and our
vehicle of life is up on blocks. If
that's so, maybe we need to put
the wheels back on. On the
other hand, maybe our tires are
okay, but we have the wrong set
of tires for the vehicle we are try-
ing to drive. We're a small
church trying to :e"'a big church.
We're a pews-and-hymnal
church trying, to be a keyboard-
and-tambourine church. Maybe
we need mud tires to help get us
out of the rut we've dug our-
selves into and move forward.
Or, maybe we just need fresh
wheels. In NASCAR, one of the
significant moments in every.
race is the timing of when the
driver heads into the. pits to get
gassed up and their wheels
changed. If the race is going to
be finished, the tires have to be

CREW needs
volunteers
The CommunilN Rebuilding
Ecumenical Workforce (CREW)
of Hendry and Glades Counties
is seeking volunteers to assist
residents with repairs and con-
tinued clean up efforts in the
aftermath of Hurricane Wilma.
Carpenters, Electricians,
Plumbers, drywall installers and
other trade skills are needed, as
well as, anyone willing to lend a
hand! For more information,
come by. our office at 121 Cen-
tral Ave. rear entrance or email

changed.
Then again, perhaps all we
need to do is check the air. I
know that our faith, like other
tires on our vehicle of life, needs
to be re-inflated from time to
time. It needs the renewal of
fresh prayer, the revitalization
that comes from delving anew
into the Scriptures, and the
restoration that comes from
being in worship and fellowship.
Other parts of our lives may need
re-inflating as well.
It isn't that we need to rein-
vent the wheels of community.
Paul described them 2,000 years
ago, and nobody has been able
to improve upon them since.
Perhaps we just need to focus
on putting them into action and
making sure they don't go flat.

Citrus growers receive

canker compensation


U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) announced earlier this
honth it would release $100 mil-
lion in citrus canker compensation
to growers. The announcement
dame the same week it issued an
interim rule prohibiting Florida cit-
rus shipments to the citrus produc-
ihg states of Alabama, Arizona, Cal-
ifornia, Hawaii, Louisiana and
Texas. Florida citrus will also be
Banned from some citrus-produc-
ing territories including American
Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana
Islands, Puerto Rico and the U.S.
Virgin Islands.
S An Alabama official told
reporters, however, that his state
will not go along with the ban.
The ban affects fresh oranges,


tangerines, grapefruits and tange-
los, and is expected to begin with
the August harvest season.
USDA said it will seek public
comments before a final rule is set
in place.
Florida Governor Jeb Bush
called the ban "overkill" that does-
n't make scientific sense. He said
he would send state officials to
Washington, D.C. to try and per-
suade USDA to modify the rule to
allow shipments to at least those
parts of the states where citrus is
not produced.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson told
reporters he was worried that the
ban might lead to loss of export
markets, particularly Europe.


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is taking
steps to promote alternative ener-
gy and help position Florida as a
leader in the field of biofuels. Mr.
Bronson will host a conference to
bring together the various ele-
ments critical to successful alterna-
tive energy programs to be held
Aug. 31 through Sept. 1 in Orlan-
do. The event will serve as a forum
for researchers, industry represen-
tatives and policymakers to dis-
cuss the production, distribution
and use of biofuels, particularly
ethanol, in Florida.


"With gas prices near record
levels and demand for cheaper
and cleaner fuels growing, we
hope to bring together the neces-
sary parties to make production
and distribution of ethanol and
biodiesel a reality in Florida," Mr.
Bronson said. "The time for dis-
cussing the need for alternative
energies is over, now we must take
steps to bring the ideas to fruition."
Several companies have
already announced plans to build
ethanol plants in Florida and a
number of others have expressed
interest. Mr. Bronson hosted a con-
ference in January in Tallahassee
where he discussed his depart-


ment's "Farm to Fuel" program, as
well as the national "25 by '25"
program which seeks to have the
agriculture producing 25 percent
of the energy consumed in the
United States by the year 2025. Me.
Bronson's Farm to Fuel Program is
designed to assist Florida farmers
and ranchers in producing bio-fuel
crops to reduce the nation's
dependency on foreign oil.
"Locating ethanol production
facilities here will reduce our
dependency on petroleum, offer
a more economical alternative,
and create jobs and economic
development," Mr. Bronson said.
"In addition, this will expand


markets for our agriculture
industry in the form of energy
crops and productive use of agri-
cultural waste products."
The conference comes on the
heels of the Florida Legislature
passing comprehensive energy
legislation, much of which is
directed toward promoting
renewable energy and providing
a number of grants and incen-
tives programs.

"Farm to Fuel" program and the

Florida's climate leads to summer rains


By Dr. James O'Brien
Florida State University
TALLAHASSEE The drought
conditions that have plagued our
state for the last several weeks have
affected our homes, businesses and
daily lives in many ways, the most
notable being increased wildfire
activity, particularly along the 1-95
corridor in East Central Florida. This
dry weather is ultimately rooted in
the climate patterns that develop
over several months and stretch
from the Pacific Ocean to the Sun-
shine State. Climatologists,by mon-
itoring weather trends and the state
of the Pacific Ocean are able to pre-
dict seasonal climate patterns up to
several months in advance.
While it is impossible to predict
exactly when the summer rains will
come, climatologists examine his-
torical patterns and current weath-
er conditions to project the proba-
bility that those weather changes
may occur. Climatological studies
are not taken lightly, and many in
the field spend considerable time
providing forecast information


resources to our local officials, fire
personnel, farmers, and citizens.
Our data is drawn from weather
monitoring facilities located
throughout our state, reported in
real-time to climate and weather
analysts who can make changes
and updates to their analysis.
Historically, Florida has always
been noted for warm, dry winters
that lead to wet summers. As resi-
dents of this beautiful state, we are
well aware that our warm winters
provide incredible weather condi-
tions while our neighbors to the
north freeze, and our summers
produce rains that generate lush
plant life for our homes and farms.
Examining our seasons from a
multitude of factors is paramount
to climatologists. Among these fac-
tors, the surface temperature of the
tropical Pacific Ocean has the
strongest and most identifiable
influence on Florida's seasonal cli-
mate patterns. El Nifio refers to
warmer than normal Pacific Ocean
temperatures and is well-known
for bringing copious rainfall and
cooler temperatures to the state in


the winter and spring seasons. La
Nifia refers to colder than normal
sea surface temperatures in the
same region and corresponds to
warmer and relatively dry winter
and spring seasons. Neutral refers
to the ocean state when sea surface
temperatures are close to normal.
We have recently transitioned from
a period of La Nifia, which was pri-
marily responsible for the dry con-
ditions the state experienced the
last few months, to Neutral, which
normalizes weather in the summer
with warm temperatures and
increased moisture. As we move
towards the summer months, we
can all expect the weather to reflect
the hot and humid conditions we
have grown to love.
A closer examination of Flori-
da's current climate reveals that the
Neutral phase we are currently
under also corresponds to variable
temperatures and rainfall patterns
that average out closer to normal
over the course of the summer sea-
son. The afternoon rains we are so
accustomed to sometimes take the
form of frequent thundershowers,


which typically begin later this
month or early June and increase
in frequency as the summer pro-
gresses.
The current analysis indicates
that there is nothing preventing
seasonal thundershowers from
arriving on time and in adequate
amounts. For example, over the
last 10 years, Florida's precipitation
from May to June has increased
every year, almost seven inches last
year alone.
It should be reiterated that the
timing of exact weather changes is
difficult to ascertain, but what
should bring comfort to us as
Floridians is that our climate, our
long term weather history, is
steeped in a pattern of dry winters
and rain filled summers. Those pro-
jected rains will bring relief to Flori-
da's citizens.
Dr. James O'Brien is the Robert
0. Lawton Distinguished Professor
of Meteorology & Oceanography at
Florida State University. He also
serves as Director for the Center for
Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction
Studies.

Reno addresses Democrats


Former United State Attorney
General Janet Reno, was the
keynote speaker at the joint
H lendry County and Glades
County Democratic Executive
Committees' Jefferson Jackson
Dinner held at the John Boy
Auditorium June 9.
Ms. Reno, appointed by Presi-
dent Bill Clinton as the first
women to serve as Attorney Gen-
eral, spoke about her fond mem-
ories of Clewiston when she was
here many years ago, arriving by
boat. She and her family mem-
bers stayed at the Clewiston Inn
and she would always remember
the kindness of the people of this
city. She spoke of the exquisite-
ness of Lake Okeechobee and
surrounding areas, and the
importance of restoring its beau-
ty, while delivering a strong mes-
sage about education, and fact
that today's Baby Boomers rep-
resent the growing senior citizen
population and that we need to
recognize the importance of car-
ing for our seniors. The over 130
people who attended gave her a
standing ovation.
Democratic hopefuls for gov-
ernor, State Senator Rod Smith,
and Peggy Davis, wife of U.S. Con-


Submitted to INI
Janet Reno (center) spoke at the Hendry County and Glades
County Jefferson Jackson Dinner. Also pictured are Ellen
Hawk Geake, Glades County DEC chair, and Grenville
Williams, Hendry County DEC chair.


gressman Jim Davis spoke to the
crowd. State Senator Skip Camp-
bell, the only democrat running
for Attorney General of Florida,
also addressed the crowd. Master
of Ceremonies, State Senator
Dave Aronberg, conveyed a posi-
tive message of a united demo-
cratic party. Mr. Aronberg, chair-
man of the Florida Mainstream


Democrats, urged a coming
together of Democrats of various
beliefs to strengthen the party.
Hendry County party chair-
man, Grenville Williams, and
Glades County chairwoman,
Ellen Hawk Geake, were very
pleased with the success of the
first joint venture of their organi-
zations.


Pogy Bill was colorful part of


Lake Okeechobee are history


Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers
of Florida was privileged to have
on staff a superb writer and his-
torian, Twila Valentine. Mrs.
Valentine wrote much about the
history of the people and places
around Lake Okeechobee and
about the lake itself. Together
with Okeechobee's Betty
Williamson, President of the
Okeechobee Historical Society,
she co-authored a book, now in
its second printing, "Strolling
down Country Roads in Okee-
chobee."
The following article came
from several articles and Mrs.
Valentine's notes about Pogy Bill
Collins and Albert Berka.
Albert Berka was a Vienesse
baker who came down to Okee-
chobee by way of Titusville
sometime in the latter part of
:41-l 4i:..4the beginnring of 1915.
(ir.'o \ears before John Kunkel
Small ol-l-he IHe\\ 'Y'ork Botanical
Garden and around the same
time as Ellis Meserve, who
opened a dry goods store and
married Faith, one of the Rauler-
son daughters). Albert opened
his bakery next door to Uncle
Charlie's barbershop on Seventh
Street (now W. Second Street).
He did a good business and

even had a boat delivering his
baked goods to the fishing
camps along the lake and all the
way to Moore Haven. When
Conner's Highway (SR 70)
opened on July 5, 1924, Albert
Berka baked the cakes and pies
and breads for the barbeque
held at Mr. Conner's place. He
also supplied the bread and pies
to Mr. Bryant's "Rough House"
on Taylor Creek, just outside
town.
,Mr,. Bryant'rV.tRcogh House
was a favorite haunt-of Po)g Bill
and-hispals. ..
Pogy Bill Collins was a young,
head-drinking hard-fighting
roughneck who grew up hard
on the wrong side of the tracks
and usually, the wrong side of
the law. He came to Okee-
chobee probably around 1910
and found that the free-wheeling
life of commercial fishing on the


lake offered the ready cash and
the weekend freedom to enjoy
his favorite pastimes: drinking
and fist-fighting.
Albert-supplied the bread the
bread and pies which strong
liquors washed down the gullets
of fishermen as they gambled.
One time, Mr. Bryant failed to
receive the orders Albert sent
out in large baskets by his
helper. A group of drunken fish-
ermen set upon the poor errand
boy before he reached the
Rough House. The boy escaped
through the scrub, but the bread
and pies met an untimely end in
the dirt of the road. Albert was
enraged.
He rushed to Taylor's Creek
to be welcomed by Pogy Bill's
remark to the boys, 'Here comes
Albert; now you're going to
catch hell!' Damages were slow
in being collected until Pogy Bill
assumed command of the situa-
tion, 'Anyone leaving' this place
admits he done it,' he asserted,
thereby gluing every foot to the
spot. 'Now,' continued the self-
proclaimed judge, jury and exe-
cutioner, 'every fella give Albert
$5 for his pies!' Hands dove
down into pockets and $75
came down on the table. The
baker was content.


Prepare for hurricanes now


By Audrey Blackwell
INI FLORIDA
With the start of hurricane
season, people are starting to
think seriously about stocking
up on supplies and which sup-
plies are necessary.
Below is a list of must haves,
along with tips on storage.
Prepare a hurricane supply
kit in plastic containers with lids
so they will be portable, yet
easy to store. Make a checklist
of necessary items and keep it
handy with the containers. Rec-
ommended items to have ready,
according to the Southern
Region Headquarters of Nation-
al Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration, (NOAA)
include:
cash or travelers checks;
lantern with extra fuel;
first aid kit with bandages,
scissors, petroleum jelly, anti-
septic spray, hydrogen perox-
ide, antacids, aspirin, ther-
mometer, rubbing alcohol and
anti-diarrhea medication;
matches;
mosquito repellent;
food and supplies (at least
a three-day'supply): drinking
water (1 gal/person/day), food
(canned or dried requiring no
cooking or refrigeration), man-
ual can opener, disposable eat-
ing utensils and plates;
hygiene items: soap (hand
sanitizer), personal hygiene
items, towelettes or paper tow-
els, plastic trash bags;
documents: important
telephone numbers, bank
books or account numbers,
legal documents (family
records of birth, marriage,
death, will, insurance, con-
tracts, deeds, etc.), credit card
numbers and companies, pass-
port, social security cards,.
immunization records, comput-
er information, family pictures,
household goods inventory;
flashlight for each person
with extra batteries;
tarp (for temporary roof
repair);
tools and repair supplies:
hammer, nails, ax, knife, pliers,
handsaw, screwdrivers, heavy
gloves;
sunglasses and sunscreen;
baby supplies: formula,
bottles, powdered milk, dia-
pers, medication;
pet supplies: food, leash
and carrier, vaccination records,
food and water containers.


For more information about
hurricane preparedness from
NOAA, visit 'the web at
www.srh.noaa.gov.
The Red Cross website rec-
ommends folding beach chairs
for sleeping in case you need to
go to a shelter. For more, visit
their Web site at www.red-
cross.org.
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture's Web site hosts a con-
sumer alert for keeping food
safe during and after a weather
emergency that was posted
ahead of the 2004 hurricane
season. The information was
made available to help reduce
the potential of food-borne ill-
ness due to food spoilage from
power outages and other prob-
lems associated with severe
weather events.
Steps they recommend for
food safety include the follow-
ing:
Keep an appliance ther-
mometer in the refrigerator and
freezer to help determine the
safety of food.
Make sure the freezer is at
or below 0 degrees F and refrig-
erator is at or below 40 degrees
F.
Freeze containers of water
to help keep food cold in the
freezer, refrigeratoror coolers if
the power goes out.
Freeze refrigerated items
such as leftovers, milk and fresh
meat and poultry that are not
needed immediately to keep
them at a safe temperature
longer.
Plan ahead and know
where dry ice and block ice can
be purchased.
Store food on shelves safe-
ly out of the way of contaminat-
ed water in case of flooding.
Have coolers on hand to
keep refrigerated food cold if
power is out more than four
hours. Make/get ice cubes and
gel packs ahead of time for use
in coolers.
Group food together in the
freezer. This helps the food stay
cold longer.
After the weather emer-
gency:
Keep refrigerator and
freezer doors closed as much as
possible to maintain the cold
temperature.
The refrigerator will keep
unopened food safely cold for
,about four hours. A full freezer
will hold the temperature for
about 48 hours 24 hours if it


is half-full and door stays
closed.
Food may be safely
refrozen if it still contains ice
crystals or is at 40 degrees F or
below.
Never taste food to deter-
mine its safety!
Obtain dry or block ice to
keep refrigerator and freezer as
cold as possible if the power is
going to be out for a prolonged
period of time. Fifty pounds of
dry ice should hold an 18-cubic-
foot full freezer for two days.
If the power has been out
for several days, check the tem-
perature of the freezer with an
appliance or food thermometer.
If the food still contains ice crys-
tals or is at 40 degrees F or
below, the food should be safe.
If a thermometer has not
been kept in the freezer, check
each package of food to deter-
mine its safety. If the food still
contains ice crystals, the food
should be safe.
Discard refrigerated per-
ishable food such as meat,
poultry, fish, soft cheese, milk,
eggs, leftovers and deli items
after four hours without power.
Drink only bottled water if
flooding has occurred.
Discard all food that came
in contact with flood water,
including canned goods.
Discard wooden cutting
boards, plastic utensils, baby
bottle nipples, and pacifiers.
Thoroughly wash all metal
pans, ceramic dishes and uten-
sils that came in contact with
flood water with hot soapy
water and sanitize by boiling
them in clean water: or by
immersing them for 15 minutes
in a solution of chlorine bleach
per quart of water.
WHEN IN DOUBT,
THROW IT OUT!
For more information on
food safety during a weather
emergency, call toll free to the
USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline
at 1-888-674-6854. For the hear-
ing impaired, call (TTY) 1-800-
256-7072.
The Hotline is staffed by food
safety experts weekdays from
10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Eastern
time. Food safety recordings
can be heard 24 hours a day
using a touch-tone phone.

Study to determine ideal amounts of lawn fertilizer


By Tom Nordlie
lnlive sity of Florida
GAINESVILLE Florida's 5
million acres of home and com-
mercial la .is may need fertilizer,
but its waiter resources don't so
University of Florida researchers
have embarked on a landmark
study to verify the effectiveness of
current state lawn-care recom-
mendations.
Funded by the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion, the five-year, $3.5 million
study is UF's largest turf grass
research project ever, said Laurie
Trenholm, an associate professor
with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences and one of
the study's principal investigators.
The research focuses on nitrogen
and phosphorus, essential plant
nutrients that pose significant
threats to Florida's water quality.
"We've known for years how
to produce beautiful turf, but now
we're determining how to do it
with the smallest amount of fertil-
izer," said Trenholm, who is also
head of the Florida Urban Turf
grass Program. "When we're
done, we'll have proven recom-
mendations that are right for
almost any landscape situation."
The study is based at three UF
research facilities in
Gainesville, Fort Lauderdale and
near Pensacola and addresses a
variety of grass species, soil types
and growing conditions, she said.
, Current state recommendations
are found in numerous publica-
tions, including the just-released


third edition of "A Guide to Florida-
Friendly Landscaping," a hand-
book for homeowners published
by UF's Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods program; a manual for
lawn-care professionals, "Florida
Green Industries Best Management
Practices for Protection of Water
Resources in Florida;" and the lat-
est edition of "The Florida Lawn
Handbook," edited by Trenholm
and J. Bryan Unruh. Recommen-
dations are also available at
http://YourFloridaLawn.ifas.ufl.edu
and www.solutionsforyourlife.
com. ,
The current recommendations
have been used since about 2000
and were developed via collabo-
ration between UF, DEP and
industry representatives, Tren-
holm said.
"The recommendations,
which are known as best man-
agement practices, give individual
homeowners and professionals a
chance to prevent nutrient pollu-
tion," she said.
When fertilizer is properly
applied to lawns, very little nitro-
gen and phosphorus is wasted,
because turf grass serves as a fil-
ter to absorb the nutrients, Tren-
holm said. But if fertilizer is
applied at excessive rates or
heavy rainfall occurs shortly after
fertilizing, the nutrients often
leach through the soil into ground
water or run off into surface
waters.
Excess nutrients in ground and
surface waters represent Florida's
biggest water-quality problem,
said Eric Livingston, chief of


DEP's Watershed Management
Program. Nutrients reach Florida
watersheds primarily from so-
called nonpoint sources, which
carry water combined from multi-
ple locations. One example of a
nonpoint source is stormwater
runoff in a city's drainage system.
"Nonpoint source pollution is
hard to deal with because the
nutrients may originate from so
many places," Livingston said.
Fortunately, funding to combat
nonpoint source pollution is also
arriving from multiple sources,
both state and federal. DEP now
has about $28 million per year
available for research and imple-
mentation, he said. The UF study
is one of the first long-term
research projects established by
the agency.
"It's exciting to have substan-
tial funds available for research,
because there are so many
unknowns concerning nonpoint
source pollution," Livingston
said.
The UF fertilizer study began in
April 2004 and the first data were
collected about a year later, said
Michael Thomas, an agricultural
engineer with DEP's Nonpoint
Source Management Section'Who
manages the research contract
between UF and DEP. Initial
results from the study are expect-
ed later this year.
"We will communicate find-
ings to the public as things move
along," Thomas said. "Eventually,
the findings will be incorporated
into publications such as the
Florida Yards and Neighborhoods


manual, DEP best management
practices manuals and model
ordinances."
Barbra Larson, statewide coor-
dinator of the Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods program, said
homeowners can help fight nutri-
ent loss by selecting products
containing a high percentage of
slow-release nitrogen, using the
recommended amount of fertiliz-
er, and briefly irrigating turf after
fertilizing to ensure good uptake
by the roots.
Those guidelines are found in
"A Guide to Florida-Friendly Land-
scaping," Larson said. The hand-
book also explains how to calcu-
late fertilizer application rates and
gives specific recommendations
based on the turf grass species
and location in the state.
Florida's soils and climatic
conditions vary enough from one
part of the state to another that
multiple recommendations are a
necessity, said John Cisar, a pro-
fessor with UF's Fort Lauderdale
Research and Education Center,
who is leading the effort to verify
fertilizer recommendations for
South Florida.
"Generally, Florida has sand
soils that are very prone to the
movement of water," Cisar said.
"Here in the southern part of the
state we have a year-round grow-
ing season and shallow sand
soils."
In the central part of the state
there is some heavier sand soil
and turf is dormant or semi-dor-
mant during the winter, said J.
Bryan Unruh, an associate profes-


sor with UF's West Florida
Research and Education Center in
Jay, a community northeast of
Pensacola. Soils in the Panhandle
contain sand and some clay, and
colder winters keep grass dor-
mant up to five months per year.
At the Fort Lauderdale center,
researchers are evaluating the fer-
tilizer needs of St. Augustine grass
and Bahia grass; in Gainesville, St.
Augustine grass and Zoysiagrass
are being evaluated; and at UF's
West Florida Research and Edu-
cation Center facilities near Pen-
sacola, Centipede grass and St.
Augustine grass are used.
Each location is hosting stud-
ies of both well-established turf
and new turf grass produced with
sod or seed, important because
the extent of the root system has
implications for potential nutrient
leaching, Unruh said. Established
turf grass has an extensive root
system that can mine nutrients
from the soil, whereas sod has a
thin layer of roots and grass
seedlings have few roots at all.
"One question we'll be able to
address is whether it's wise to fer-
tilize before planting grass seed,"
Unruh said. "It's a common prac-
tice, but some fertilizer may leach
through the soil."
Researchers will also deter-
mine the best timetable for fertil-
izing newly established turf grass,
an important issue for builders
and homeowners in new devel-
opments, he said.
To help researchers collect
water samples to evaluate nutri-
ent loss, all turf used in the project


is being grown on carefully con-
structed plots with large, funnel-
like devices called lysimeters,
Unruh said. Water seeping
through the soil in the lysimeter is
channeled through plastic tubing
to a collection point where
researchers can take samples.
The nitrogen and phosphorus
content of the samples will be eval-
uated at UF's Analytical Research
Laboratory in Gainesville.
The UF study is a welcome
development for commercial
lawn-care providers, who want to
follow best-management prac-
tices but also need assurance that
the guidelines they're asked to fol-
low are based on the best avail-
able science, said Erica Santella,
region technical manager of the
commercial lawn-care providers
TruGreen-ChemLawn and Tru-
Green-LandCare in Orlando.
"I'm excited that there will be
some good, solid work to verify
the BMPs," Santella said. "As Flori-
da grows, water quality is going to
be a big issue, and it's in every-
body's interest that professionals,
as well as homeowners, take an
active role in reducing nutrient
runoff."

Pet owners must plan ahead


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
According to the American Pet
Products Manufacturers Associa-
tion 2003-2004 National Pet Own-
ers Survey, 39 percent, or 40.6 mil-
lion households in the U.S., own at
16ast one dog. Thirty-four percent
- or 35.4 million households -
own at least one cat.
SThe Lake Okeechobee area has
more than its share of pets.
With the official start of the 2006
hurricane season here, pet owners
need to begin making plans on
what to do with their pets in the
event a storm heads this way.
* Unfortunately, there are very
few motels that willaccept pets if a
homeowner is forced to evacuate
his/her homie.
Begin checking with motels out
of the area now, in case you must
evacuate. Some in the Orlando and
Kissimmee area will take pets.
Know where they are and how to
get to them if a hurricane is headed
this direction.
Keep in mind, if power is lost to
nost of the town, veterinary facili-
ties may also be without water and
power.
If you do not want to be separat-
ed from your pet, there are plans
you should make well in advance
of anystorm.
When preparing a hurricane
supply kit for your family, prepare
one foryour pet as well.
e Make sure to include enough
4ron-perishable food, water and
whatever medication your pet may
be on for a month.
S* If you know that your pet
becomes overly agitated during a
storm, contact your regular veteri-
rjarian to see if he or she recom-
ends a tranquilizer or some other
way of calming the pet. A veterinar-
ian will not prescribe tranquilizers
