Finizio's contract approved


Garrett: 'He'll make
the city proud'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE At Monday's
city commission meeting, the
commissioners voted in favor of
approving the contract of City
Manager Vincent Finizio.
The contract approval comes
amid much controversy sur-
rounding the city manager, includ-


ing the firing of various staff mem-
bers, advice from the city's top
administrator to the commission
on how to deal with city employ-
ees and the ongoing water bill
issues in the city.
Under a previous contractual
agreement, it was stated that the
city manager would serve a two-
year term. On Monday, however,
the commission voted on approv-
ing a one-year contract.
The contract approval was
motioned by Vice Mayor Donald
Garrett and seconded by Commis-


sioner Shelly Miller. Mayor Ray
Torres Sanchez cast the deciding
vote in favor of the conditions of
the contract.
Commissioners Gwendolyn
Asia-Williams and Mary Kendall
voted against it.
A number of audience mem-
bers came to the podium during
the commission meeting, ques-
tioning the employment of Mr.
Finizio.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
indicated she voted against Mr.
Finizio's employment because

she did not agree with some of the
terms of the document, as well as
a correspondence that Mr. Finizio
wrote to Florida Governor Charlie
Crist criticizing her.
The terminology that Commis-
sioner Asia-Williams questioned
included the 20 vacation days that
Mr. Finizio will accrue, as well as
the $125,000 salary that Mr. Finizio
will be paid annually.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
said she looks at the salary figure
from a financial standpoint, and
the current condition of the city's


finances.
The commissioner also ques-
tioned the three months sever-
ance pay that Mr. Finizio would
receive if his performance is
deemed to be unsatisfactory.
The issue that concerned the
commissioner the most, however,
was the correspondence the city
manager wrote to the governor
regarding her conduct during past
commission meetings.

Unpaid water

convictions


Officials target $3.5
in unpaid water bills

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE His tie was
slightly crooked when he spoke
and his voice seemed to rush
itself as he addressed the sparse
number of mostly news
reporters in the city hall cham-
bers.
Th1e mayor, certainly w\as
aggressive in his conviction that
approximately $3.5 million in
unpaid water bills need to be
collected water bills that go
back many decades and he
offered a word of caution to
those who refuse to cooperate:
They should go to jail.
The mayor, with City Manag-


er Vincent Finizio standing
behind him, made the
announcement on Thursday
that the city will hire a profes-
sional firm to conduct a forensic
audit to determine who specifi-
cally should be held account-
able for the debt.
While City Commissioner
Don Garrett sat in the audience
for the press conference, no
other elected official was seen.
Many residents have "been
conditioned to rip off the sys-
tem," and the city will make
sure that doesn't continue, the
mayor said.
According to Mr. Finizio, the
city has been successful in
reducing what had been
approximately $1.2 million in
outstanding water bills by work-

Sickle Cell



Foundation



helps Glades


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Sickle
Cell Foundation (SCF) of Palm
Beach County offers services to
those affected with sickle cell
disease in the Glades area.
The SCF, located on 136 S.
Main Street in Belle Glade, has
been in operation as a satellite
office for five years.
The case manager, Robert
Craig Brickous, said the founda-
tion assists those affected by
sickle cell disease by offering
case management services,
screenings for sickle cell disease
or trait and counseling on the
disease, to name a few services.


According to the foundation,
sickle cell disease is a genetic dis-
ease that is passed from parents
to their children. It not only
affects those who have the ill-
ness but loved ones as well.
A person with a sickle cell
trait carries a gene for sickle cell
disease but may not actually
have it. The gene, however, can
be passed to the person's next
generation, with a chance the
child is born with sickle cell ane-
mia.
Officials said that sickle cell
disease is most common among
African Americans, although all
ethnic groups can have it, espe-

Glades Day Track teams


aim for promising season


Boys and girls
work together

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE In only its
fourth season of operation, the
boys and girls track programs at
Glades Day School are looking
forward to a great season.
The girls and boys track
coaches, Angee Lohmann and
Thomas Meeks, said that the
boys and girls work together
during practices. It is a practice


that is not used by every track
program, but the coaches and
the athletes said that it will help
the teams achieve success this
season.
Coach Lohmann said that
her goal for the girls this season
is to have each runner improve
their times in events. She hopes
some of the girls will reach the
regional meet and possibly the
state finals.
"My hope is that we could
build a lasting foundation for
the girls' track program," said
Coach Lohmann.
The girls' coach said that she


expects the runners to give it
their all.
"Our young athletes will
grow to be able to excel at their
sport as our program continues
to blossom," said Coach
Lohmann.
Here are five athletes to look
forward to this season:
Jennifer Alexander, a jun-
ior, is said to be a top contender
for placing in the meets. She
will be performing in the 100
and 200 meter races, as well as

Nutrition month can be l .


'Fad free' for everyone


PALM BEACH The National
Nutrition Month is a nutrition edu-
cation and information campaign
sponsored annually by the Ameri-
can Dietetic Association to pro-
mote healthy eating habits that
can result in increasing lifelong
health.
As part of this effort, the School
Food Service Department of the
School District of Palm Beach
County is inviting everyone to join
in the activities and to practice the
following recommendations from
the American Dietetic Associa-
tion:
Develop an eating plan for life-
long health. Too often people
adopt the latest food fad rather
than focusing on overall health.
Get back to basics and use the
Dietary Guidelines 2005 and My
Pyramid (www.mypyramid.gov)
as your guide to healthy eating.
Choose foods sensibly by look-
ing at the big picture. A single
food or meal does not make or
break a healthful diet. When con-
sumed in moderation in the
appropriate portion size, all foods


can fit into a healthful diet.
Learn how to spot a food fad.
Unreasonable or exaggerated
claims that eating (or not eating)
specific foods, nutrient supple-
ments or combinations of foods
may cure disease or offer quick
weight loss are key features of fad
diets.
Find your balance between
food and physical activity. Regular
physical activity is important for
your overall health and fitness
plus it helps control body weight,
promotes a feeling of well-being
and reduces the risk of chronic
diseases.
Food and nutrition misinfor-
mation can have harmful effects
on your health and well-being, as
well as your wallet. Registered
dietitians are uniquely qualified to
communicate current and emerg-
ing science-based nutrition infor-
mation and are an instrumental
part of developing a diet plan that
is unique to your particular needs.
For more information, please
contact Paula Triana at (561) 383-
2026.

your South Florida home for the
summer. Seasonal residents need
to be aware of the unique environ-
mental concerns of housing in
South Florida and why they differ
from up north.
Learn how to prevent mold and
mildew, what a humidistat does
and how to properly set it. There
are a number of steps that seasonal
residents should take to reduce
damage from floods or major
storms that can help protect your


valuable housing investment.
There is no charge for the work-
shop. Booklets with supporting
information will be available for $5
each. For more information and to
register, please call (561) 233-1742.
The topic of the workshop is
"Closing Your South Florida
Home." It will be held by the Palm
Beach County Cooperative Exten-
sion Service as an educational
workshop for seasonal residents.
The workshop will take place at
the Clayton Hutcheson Agricultural
Complex, Exhibit Hall A, 559 N.
Military Trail, West Palm Beach on
Tuesday, March 13, 9:30 a.m. until

Lock inspection to interrupt


boat traffic near Clewiston


FORT MYERS The South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD) reports that the S-310
navigation lock at Clewiston will
be taken out of service intermit-
tently between March 21 and 22,
for a routine safety inspection. The
inspection will require divers to be
in the water for up to two hours at
a time. To protect the divers, no
boat traffic can be allowed
through the navigation lock while


the divers are in the water.
Should any safety issues be
identified during the inspection,
it may become necessary to
close the S-310 navigation lock
completely while repairs are
made. Should this happen, the
SFWMD will notify boaters and
business owners dependent on
this navigation lock.
The S-310 structure, located
in the Herbert Hoover Dike in


Clewiston, allows boat passage
between Lake Okeechobee and
the Industrial Canal. Originally
constructed in 1933 as part of a
hurricane gate structure, S-310
was modified into a navigation
lock in 1981.
Questions from the public
regarding the lock closing should
be directed to the SFWMD Okee-
chobee Service Center at (863)
462-52160 or (800) 250-4200.

skills and how to work a job fair.
One-on-one sessions were also
available. More than 80 people
attended at least one session with
the consultants.
"Based on all of our measures,
this job fair was quite a success,
said Jim DeChant, vice president,
Right Management. "More than
15 businesses attended each day
and the response was very favor-
able from both the employees
who participated and the busi-
nesses who attended."
Businesses and organizations
who attended were Duda,

tals, FP&L, GEO Group/Moore

tions Department, Jobing.com,

U.S Sug
CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar held
a two-day job fair at the Pahokee
Community Center last week for
workers impacted by the upcom-
ing closure of its Bryant Sugar Mill
following the conclusion of this
sugarcane harvesting and process-
ing season. State, county and local
businesses participated in the job
fair, representing several hundred
available positions in a diverse geo-
graphic area.
Although the Bryant Mill is
expected to run until mid-April, the
job fair was held to allow the facto-
ry's employees to get a head start
on finding new jobs. Nearly 70
employees attended the job fair.
According.to Human Resources
Manager, Cathy Ruediger, "Bryant
employees bring a multitude of
marketable skills and job expertise
to area employers. In addition to
sugar specialists like mill operators,
sugar boilers, boiler operators,
power plant operators and techni-
cians, there are engineers,
mechanics, instrument mechanics,
machinists, electrician, welders,
heavy machine operators, truck
drivers, chemists, clerical and a
wide range of highly motivated
men and women with agricultural
and industrial experience."
U.S. Sugar hired 'Right Manage-
ment, the world's largest organiza-
tional consulting and outplace-
ment firm, to assist its Bryant
employees' transition to new jobs.
Right Management conducted a
five week career center in Pahokee
for interested workers that included
group workshops on resumes, job
applications, interview process and
skills, networking and marketing

Florida Water Management District,
Stewart Mining Industries, Sugar
Cane Growers Cooperative of Flori-
da, United Insurance of America.
According to Jen Sebok, CFO
and vice president of Stewart Min-
ing, the applicants he spoke with
had the types of skills needed for
many of the jobs becoming avail-
able in their new Western Palm
Beach County Rock Mine.
"I am impressed with the quali-
ty of the people who I met during
the job fair, and the timing of
Bryant's closure fits in well with our
hiring time table at the new mine,"
said Mr. Sebok.
"This is a great community serv-
ice that U.S. Sugar has provided by


Palm Beach County's booth was a popular one, with three legal-sized pages of open posi-
tions available.


giving local businesses the oppor-
tunity to find so many skilled indi-
viduals in one place," said Ashley
Tripp, ofTripp Electric Motors.
In addition to job postings, the
job fair also provided an opportuni-
ty for the Bryant employees to learn
about the services and training
available locally. Palm Beach Com-
munity College had a table with
information on different courses
and scholarships available. The
local Workforce Alliance explained
a variety of services available
including funding for dislocated
workers, job search help, career
change programs, networking
opportunities and job training in
computers, CDL (Commercial Dri-
ver's License), heavy equipment
operators, nursing and other fields.
Bryant employees who partici-
pated in the career center and job
fair were appreciative of the oppor-
tunities U.S. Sugar is providing to
help secure future employment.
One of the first to enter the job
fair was Sydney Slydell, a produc-
tion maintenance worker who
was born and raised in Pahokee.
He took advantage of the resume
building, interview skills and job
fair training offered by Right
Management.
"I am still a little nervous, but I
have some options now," said
Mr. Slydell. He was particularly
interested in the positions avail-
able at Stewart Mining. "Life goes
on," he said.
In November 2004, U.S. Sugar
announced plans to modernize,
consolidate and automate its sugar
processing facilities in Clewiston
and close its smaller Bryant Mill.


With state-of-the-art and highly
automated equipment, the 42,000
tons-per day facility is currently in
the final stages of construction, and
when completed, will be among
the largest in the world.
"In order to successfully com-
pete in a changing sugar market
with increased' foreign sugar
imports as a result of NAFTA,
CAFTA and other trade agree-
ments, we are automating our facil-
ities to lower our costs," said Bob
Buker, President and CEO.


"Unfortunately, one of the con-
sequences of increased global
trade, automation and new tech-
nology will be the loss several hun-
dred jobs in our sugar processing
operations," Mr. Buker said.
Scheduled to be in full opera-
tion in October, 2007, U.S. Sugar's
modernized sugar processing facil-
ity will be completely integrated
with its refining operations at the
Clewiston site. The Bryant Mill facil-
ity, built in 1962, is scheduled to
close in late spring of 2007.

Thank You from the

Warren L. Brown Family


How can we really say thank you for all the outpouring of love, food, cards
and support with which we were blessed at the passing of our husband, father, PaPa,
brother and uncle, Warren L. Brown. We were overwhelmed by our family and friends in
the community and from places near and far who came to offer their comfort and
memories for this man who was so loved by all of us. Please know how much our
hearts were touched and how much we appreciate everything that was done. We hope
that the following will somehow give you an idea of the gratitude we feel and the man
that we loved (and still do):
We Thank You
"Thank You" seems such an inadequate phrase
To tell you how we really feel
For all of the wonderful things that you did
From your thoughts to your prayers to the meals
For all who took time to come visit
For all who wrote letters and cards
For all who came to the services
Who gave comfort in times so hard
For all who sent beautiful flowers and plants
To remind us how much you cared
For those who came from so far away
For stories that with us you shared
We will hold in our hearts and remember the thoughts
That you took precious time to convey
We "Thank You" and hope that somehow these words
Will express how we feel in some way.

ation coordinated with the South
Florida Fair to exhibit artwork creat-
ed by students in the classroom.
This Student K-12 Art Exhibition
demonstrated to the public the
quality and scope of our school art
programs in Palm Beach County.
The South Florida Fair awarded
prizes which included ribbons, cer-
tificates and two complimentary
fair tickets for each participating
student and teacher.
The South Florida Fair supplied
each participating school with the
basic materials to participate in the
Fair School Art project. Each school
received a crown to decorate. Each
crown was voted on by the fairgo-
ers and cash awards were given to
elementary, middle and high
schools. The prizes included: three-
$200 awards, three-$100 awards,
three-$50 awards and overall win-
ner cash award of $300.
The exhibit at South Florida Fair
exposes people in the community
to the artwork students are doing in
the classroom and awards art
teachers with extra funding to help
pay for art supplies. We need to
give thanks to Vicki Chouris, Lisa
Dubbing from the South Florida
Fair and Lee Glaze, Bak MSOA Mag-
net Coordinator for organizing the
exhibit.
The winners selected by the Art

Public Service

Commission

marks benefits
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
marked the benefits of energy
conservation and demand-side
management programs in its
annual report (Report) on activi-
ties related to the Florida Energy
Efficiency and Conservation Act
(FEECA). The PSC sets energy
savings goals for the seven elec-
tric utilities subject to FEECA and
the Report, delivered to the Gov-
ernor and the Legislature,
describes the utilities' efforts.
The PSC reviews demand-side
management goals for the utili-
ties at least once every five years
and each utility files its plans for
meeting those objectives with
the Commission. A variety of pro-
grams for residential and com-
mercial customers include
incentives for conducting energy
audits, installing energy-efficient
equipment, and reducing electri-
cal consumption during peak
periods. Since 1980, these
demand-side management pro-
grams have reduced the state's
summer peak electrical demand
by nearly 5,000 megawatts (MW)
and winter peak demand by
more than 5,500 MW. By con-
serving energy, Floridians have
deferred the need for building
ten 500 MW power plants, the
equivalent of enough electricity
for 1.6 million households.
The PSC- has recently
approved several new and
revised conservation programs
sponsored by the utilities. By
using these programs, con-
sumers are expected to reduce
summer and winter peak
demand by an additional 798 and
861 MW, respectively, by 2015.
"By conserving energy and
generating electricity with renew-
ables, we can reduce our depend-
ence on oil and natural gas," said
PSC Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.
The Report shows that 1,100
MW of electricity came from
renewable sources (municipal
solid waste, biomass, hydropow-
er, and landfill gas) last year.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewater
services in a safe, affordable, and
reliable manner. The PSC exercis-
es regulatory authority over utili-
ties in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competitive
market oversight; and monitoring
of safety, reliability, and service.

Disaster programs extend deadline


GAINESVILLE The extended
deadline to sign up for seven 2005
Hurricane Disaster Programs is
now March 30th, announced Kevin
L. Kelley, State Executive Director
for the USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA).
Authorized by the Emergency
Agricultural Disaster Assistance Act
of 2006 (the Act) in June 2006,
these U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture (USDA) programs offer finan-
cial assistance to farmers and
ranchers who suffered losses due
to Hurricanes Katrina, Ophelia,
Rita or Wilma in 2005. Under the
Act, USDA's Commodity Credit
Corporation (CCC) will provide
payments to eligible producers in
certain counties of Alabama,
Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mis-
sissippi, North Carolina, South Car-
olina, Tennessee and Texas. The
Farm Service Agency will adminis-
ter the funds on behalf of CCC.
In Florida 37 eligible counties
are eligible for assistance as a result
of the damage caused by Hurri-
canes Katrina and Wilma, said
Kevin L. Kelley, State Executive
Director for the USDAs Farm Ser-
vice Agency.(FSA).
Eligible Florida counties include
37 counties: Bay, Gulf, Liberty,
Palm Beach, Brevard, Hardee,
Manatee, Polk, Broward, Hendry,
Martin, St. Lucie, Calhoun, High-
lands, Miami-Dade, Santa Rosa,
Charlotte, Hillsborough, Monroe,

ing to quickly shut off water
throughout the city.
The move seemed to have
worked.
By his estimation, the city has
received about $900,000 from the
customers in question and now
has only $280,000 to collect before
all commercial and residential
accounts are caught up.
Last week, service to 51 mostly
residential water accounts was to
be cut off.
The $3.5 million figure, though,
is a separate matter.
According to Mayor Sanchez,
an in-house audit revealed that
dozens and very easily hundreds,
of the city's former customers
somehow managed to keep from
paying high water bills after
approaching the city an insinua-
tion that former city hall adminis-
trations were responsible for back-
door deals that cost the, city
millions.
He said there exists the possibil-
ity that former administrators,
mayors and commissioners, were
"cutting some type of deals" and

Eligible counties are those
declared primary natural disaster
areas by Secretary Johanns or des-
ignated a major disaster or emer-
gency by President Bush for 2005
calendar-year hurricanes Katrina,
Ophelia, Wilma or Rita. Counties
contiguous to a primary county are
also eligible. The Act did not
include counties declared disaster
areas by Hurricane Dennis. Pro-
gram fact sheets include the list of
eligible counties, as well as pro-
gram details, and can be found

Asian groups.
Sickle cell disease is not conta-
gious, nor does it affect the mind. It
is possible to lead a long and pro-
ductive life with the disease,
according to the foundation.
On a normal basis, the red
blood cells in an individual's body
are smooth, soft and round.
However, sickle cell anemia has
an adverse effect on red blood
cells, making them become hard,
sticky and shaped like crescents.
The disease could cause organ
damage, leg ulcers, pregnancy
complications and other medical
problems, according to the foun-
dation.
Mr. Brickous is optimistic that
those in th

"might have been racketeering."
"These people who did this
should be behind bars," Mayor
Sanchez said.
The forensics audit is expected
to be completed within 90 days of
the selection of the firm. Inter-
viewed by auditors will be city hall
staff who will be required, city offi-
cials said, to turn over any informa-
tion they have about the unpaid
bills.
The plan then is to hand over
the results to the state attorney's
office for further prosecution.
Mayor Sanchez was especially
critical of the neighboring city of
South Bay. According to him,
South Bay owes $91,000 in unpaid
fees.
"The check's always in the
mail," the mayor scoffed.
The aggressive plans to collect
the money has drawn criticism by
groups that say city hall is being
too heavy-handed, too quick to
implement wide-reaching policy
decisions and too rushed in their
determinations to carefully consid-
er the situation of many residents.
Responding to claims that the
city refused to accept approxi-
mately $150,000 in county aid to
help residents of low-income pay


nothing more than 'enemies of the
people."'
Commissioner Asia-Williams
said that she had never spoken to
Mr. Finizio in person prior to Mon-
day's meeting.
"I can't vote to approve a con-
tract when a gentleman who has
never held a conversation with me
sends a letter to Governor Charlie
Crist, referencing to meetings that
he was not a part of, when I have
always focused on city issues pas-
sionately and without disrespect,"
said Commissioner Asia-Williams.
Now that the contract has been
approved, the commissioner said
that Mr. Finizio's actions will be

2005 Hurricanes Nursery Pro-
gram provides benefits to com-
mercial ornamental nursery and
fernery producers who suffered
inventory losses and incurred
clean-up costs.
2005 Hurricanes Tree Assis-
tance Program (TAP) provides
payments to eligible owners of
commercially grown Christmas
trees, ornamental trees, nursery
trees, potted trees, bushes (includ-
ing shrubs) and vines that were lost
or damaged due to 2005 hurri-
canes.
Producers may not receive pay-
ments made under other federal
programs for the same losses.
According to Kelley, producers
who received a Federal Crop Insur-
ance indemnity payment will not
be eligible for payments under the
2005 Hurricanes Citrus Program,
Tropical Fruit Program, Fruit and
Vegetable Program, and Nursery
Program. An exception to this is
that although an indemnity pay-
ment was received, producers may
be eligible for the clean-up portion
of the Nursery Program. Some pro-
ducers may have little documenta-
tion of losses as a result of hurri-
cane devastation; however, USDA
will require producers to provide
all available documentation. Inter-
ested farmers may contact their
local USDA Service Centers for fur-
ther information on eligibility
requirements and application pro-
cedures for these and other pro-
grams.

"My job as case manager is to
make sure our clients and families

social services and health care,"
said Mr. Brickous.
Mr. Brickous said that he con-
ducts home visits, monitors clients'
needs and provides counseling as

On the third Saturday of each

their utility bills, the mayor said the
city would not accept the award
from the county itself, but urges
individual residents who feel they
qualify to contact the county
directly.
Compounding the situation,
civic groups and other residents
said, is the high cost of water serv-
ice in Belle Glade compared to
most municipalities in the county
and even the state. The high bills
make it difficult for families and
individuals on fixed incomes and
welfare stay current. Asking for
complete payment in a matter of
days seems rushed, they say.
The mayor, meanwhile dis-
agrees with the claim. If it were
happening in any other city in
Palm Beach County, he said, "We
would not be having this press
conference your water would
be turned off."
In explaining his reasoning for
calling an audit, Mayor Sanchez
said he has the best interest of the
city in mind.

mayor who is strong armed,"
Mayor Sanchez said. "I want to be
known as fair."

"With that being said, I hope he
will realize the commissioners will
give directives and expect them to
be carried out in a professional and
timely manner," said Commission-
er Asia-Williams.
When asked about the contract
approval, Mr. Finizio declined com-
ment.
Vice Mayor Garrett said that if
given a chance to do so, Mr. Finizio
will do a good job for the city.
"He'll make the city proud,"

this season. She will be in the 400
meter races, high jump and both
the 4X400 and 4X800 meter relays.
Coach Meeks, who is in his first
season, said that his two goals for
his boys are to win their district
meet and to improve their times
after each meet.
Coach Meeks said that as a
young team, the boys track meet
needs to spend its time practicing
to really show off the school's tal-
ent.
"I think track gives us an
opportunity to showcase our ath-
letes in ways we haven't in the
past," said Coach Meeks.
Here are six athletes to look
forward to this season:
Karl Charles, a senior, quali-
fied for the state finals in triple
jump in the last two seasons. He
hopes to be a state champion in
the event this season. Karl will
also participate in the long jump,
the shot-put and the 400 meter
races.
Ernest Jackson, a junior, will
be participating in the 100 and 200
meter races, as well as 4x100 relay


team. He looks to do big things
this season.
Andrew Joseph, who also is
playing baseball this season as a
pitcher and outfielder, will per-
form in the 100 meter races and
be on the 4x100 relay team.
Jared Lizack, a junior, looks
to be one of the top runners in
Class 1A. His events will be the 1-
and 2-mile runs, as well as the
4x800 relay.
Matt Miedema, a junior, will
be participating in the same
events as Jared. He hopes to excel
in his events this season, as he and
Jared were the top two cross
country runners this past season.
Josh Cuthbert, a sophomore
and first year track athlete, looks to
have a promising season as he will
be primarily throwing the discus
in this season's meets.
All of Glades Day's meets will
be away, including a March 16
meet at the Glades Central High
School track, when both teams
look to come out in full force.

Antibiotic resistance is a serious threat to all


By Rebekah Bernard, MD
"I started getting a scratchy
throat this morning," a patient
told me this morning. "Last time
this happened my doctor gave
me an antibiotic that knocked it
right out." Later on that day,
another patient told me, "I've
been taking my mother's left-
over penicillin for a sinus infec-
tion." Still another patient told
me that she was taking a Mexi-
can antibiotic that she got at a
local store. Although they don't
realize it, these three patients are
contributing to a very serious
crisis in medicine: the develop-
ment of super-strong bacteria
that are resistant to available
antibiotics.
Antibiotics were introduced
during the 1940's, and have


helped to save the lives of many
people with serious bacterial
infections. Unfortunately, many
bacteria have
learned to
mutate or
change in
order to pre-
vent being
destroyed by
antibiotics.
This mutation
is known as
"antibiotic Rebekah
resistance." If Berard
we do not stop
this problem, our society faces a
future of increased illness and
death from these powerful
mutated bacteria.
To prevent antibiotic resist-
ance, follow these recommen-
dations:
Antibiotics should only be


prescribed by a trained health
care professional. Doctors
spend many years in school to
learn when antibiotics are nec-
essary, and what antibiotic is
most useful for a specific infec-
tion. It is a very bad idea to get
antibiotics from a friend, rela-
tive, or local store. In the United
States, it is illegal to sell antibi-
otics without a prescription.
However, in other countries like
Mexico, many medicines are
available over-the-counter.
Sometimes these medicines are
brought into the United States
and sold at small shops. Not
only can this contribute to
antibiotic resistance, but it could
be dangerous to your health, as
many antibiotics have serious
side effects.
Antibiotics should only be
prescribed for definite bacterial


infections. Antibiotics do not
help viral infections, such as the
common cold or the flu. These
illnesses will generally get better
by themselves within a few days
to a week. Your doctor may rec-
ommend medicines to treat the
symptoms of these viruses, such
as pain relievers, cough syrups,
and decongestants. The best
treatment for viral infections is
plenty of rest, fluids, and avoid-
ance of cigarette smoke.
If antibiotics are pre-
scribed, take every pill until the
bottle is empty. It is difficult for
many people to finish their dose
of antibiotics, because they usu-
ally feel better before the antibi-
otics are completed. However,
not finishing the medicine can
allow any remaining bacteria to
become stronger and develop
resistance in the future.


Prevent infections before
they start. One of the best ways
to prevent infection is by fre-
quent hand washing or the use
of hand sanitizers. Cover your
mouth when you cough or
sneeze, and avoid work or
school when you are very ill to
prevent spreading infection. Vac-


cines are very useful in prevent-
ing infections such as pneumo-
nia and the flu. Don't smoke, as
smokers are more likely to
develop infections.
Doctors and patients can help
prevent antibiotic resistance by
working together against this
very serious problem.


Help 'Healthy Families Florida' continue


LABELLE Florida Legisla-
ture made a wise decision to
invest in Healthy Families Florida
in 1998. Healthy Families Florida
is the only program in Florida
proven to prevent child abuse
before it ever begins. The
nationally credentialed, commu-
nity-based, voluntary home visit-
ing program begins providing
services during pregnancy or at
the birth of a child. Healthy Fam-
ilies' services help parents cope
with challenges and learn neces-
sary skills to provide their chil-
dren with positive, nurturing
developmental experiences.
In Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties, Healthy Families is spon-
sored by Hendry and Glades
Counties Health Departments
and annually serves 210 families
and their children. Each year in
53 of Florida's 67 counties,


Healthy Families provides servic-
es to 13, 000 high-risk families,
while sparing 21,000 children
from injury, emotional and psy-
chological trauma, developmen-
tal delay or even worse.
An independent five-year eval-
uation showed that Healthy Fam-
ilies Florida's participants have
20 percent less child abuse and
neglect than all families in their
target service area in spite of the
fact that the participants are at
significantly higher risk for abuse
and neglect. Evidence-based out-
comes show that Healthy Fami-
lies Florida also improves the
health of mothers and their chil-
dren, increases parent-child
interaction, and improves family
self-sufficiency. Research has
shown investing in proven pre-
vention programs like Healthy
Families will avoid costs associat-


ed with abuse, such as the need
for out of home care, special
education, teen pregnancy,
school dropouts, juvenile delin-
quency, and substance abuse.
The Legislature has contin-
ued to fund Healthy Families,
but the program has gone four
years without any increase to
address the escalating costs of
providing these important serv-
ices. If the program does not
receive a funding increase this
year, the quality of services pro-
vided, and thus the outstanding
results achieved in our commu-
nity and throughout Florida will
be severely compromised. Par-
enting is a demanding job and
parents and caregivers deserve
our support. Healthy Families
has proven evidence-based out-
comes and is making a real dif-
ference. Families in Hendry and


Glades Counties need the Flori-
da Legislature to invest addition-
al funds so Healthy Families can
continue the great work of pre-
venting child abuse and neglect.
For more information on
Healthy Families Hendry/Glades,
contact Judy Paskvan, Program
Director at Hendry County
Health Department, 1140 Pratt
Blvd., LaBelle. Phone: (863)-
674-4056 ext 116.
The Hendry/Glades County
Health Department promotes
and protects the health and safe-
ty of our two counties through
the delivery of quality health
services and the promotion of
health care standards.

MOORE HAVEN On Feb. 23,
the entire Moore Haven
Junior/Senior High School was
invited to come out to the football
field for the Ag Olympics. Ag
members wore the official colors
of blue and gold, but still had to
remain within the limits of the
school dress code. Participants
threw cow chips, competed in a
pedal tractor pull, made a dash to
the finish line in the sack race and
also used their best roping tech-
niques in the hay bale roping
competition. Even a few teachers
got into the act.
Mrs. Moss and Mrs. Hamilton
both threw a pretty mean cow
chip and pedaled their way
through the tractor pull. Mr.

World's best cowboys ready



for Okeechobee and Brighton


Submitted photo/Angela Lanier
Eight seconds
Edison College student and Lakeport resident, Amy Ziegler stayed on the mechanical bull
for the full eight seconds during the Chalo-Nitka Festival held on March 3-4 in Moore
Haven. She said it was well worth the $5 ticket price.


OKEECHOBEE Florida will
be the site for the best rodeo
action in the nation when Okee-
chobee hosts the national Dodge
Xtreme Bulls Tour Presented by
B&W Trailer Hitches on March
10, as well as the Okeechobee
Rodeo, which runs March 10 and
11. In addition, the PRCA-sanc-
tioned 79th Annual Arcadia All-
Florida Championship Rodeo will
be held March 9-11, in Arcadia.
Forty of the world's top bull
riders will converge on the Fred
Smith Arena to take their shot at a
$60,000 purse on Saturday, March
10, at 8 p.m. at the Brighton Semi-
nole Reservation's Fred Smith
Arena for The Seminole Classic, a
nationally televised event on
ESPN. Competitors include 2006
Wrangler NFR World Champion
B.J. Schumacher and 2004 world
champion Dustin Elliott, as well
as 2006 Dodge Xtreme Bulls
national champion Zeb Lanham.
Tickets for the Dodge Xtreme
Bulls Tour Seminole Classic event


Torry Island to host an adventure race


BELLE GLADE On April 21,
in conjunction with the Black Gold
Jubilee, Belle Glade will host its first
adventure race, "Escape from
Torry Island." Adventure racing is a
growing sport throughout the
world. According to the United
States Adventure Race Association,
it is estimated that 250,000 people
have participated in adventure
races during the last five years. The
vast majority of adventure races
include rail running, mountain bik-
ing and, ideally, a paddling event.
Belle Glade's adventure race
will consist of a three-mile run,
seven-mile bike, and a three-quar-
Ster mile canoe, as well as a zip line.
This race is perfect for beginners
and adventurous enough for sea-
soned athletes. To simply compete
and have an enjoyable race, you do


not need to be an expert in any of
these events. Often a basic working
knowledge will suffice.
Soloist and teams of two or
three will compete. Canoes and life
vests will be provided. The partici-
pants must bring their own moun-
tain bike and helmet. The biking
section will consist mostly of dou-
ble track. The running section will
be single track with some dense
vegetation. The race will also
include some creative challenges
and obstacles. Many racers find the
team aspect of adventure racing to
be among the most enticing and
demanding aspects.
More detailed information
about the race and registration can
be found at www.torryisland.com.
For more information, call Kenny
Lutz, (561) 914-0373.

and accompanying news item
that so captured my attention that
I printed it out and placed it on the
bulletin board of the church. I
have since thought of what the
apostle Paul said in Galatians 5:16
"But if ye bite and devour one
another, take heed that ye be not
consumed one of another." Other
scriptures that came to mind were
James 3:14-18 and James 4:1-3
about the abusive tongue.
The picture that I'm referring to
is a 17-foot long Burmese python
that had swallowed a 6-foot alliga-
tor and in the process his body
had ruptured. At the bottom and


upper corner of mte picture you
can see part of the python with its
head missing. Evidently the swal-
lowing took place after a bitter
struggle between the snake and
the alligator. In the end, both
came out losers. This gruesome
scene was spotted by a helicopter
pilot in the Florida Everglades on
Sept. 26.
The Burmese python are native
to Southeast Asia and grow to be
as long as 20 feet. We are told that
more than 144,000 Burmese
python have been imported to the
United States in the past five years,
and being young and very small,
they are bought for pets. Evidently

the past two years, 156 have been
documented as having been cap-
tured.
They seem to be multiplying
and challenging the alligator as
the monarch of the swamps.
Sometimes the snake wins; some-
times the alligator wins. Some-
times it is a draw. A python was
seen wrapping himself around an
alligator. The alligator rolls and
tumbles, and fights and bites.
After about 24 hours of this, the
encounter obviously ended in a
draw, with both swimming off
and vanishing. It would seem that

sight, is it? If this is appalling and
shocking to our sensitivities; how
much more so should it become
when we visualize human beings
in the picture? When we feel hos-
tile and combative toward others,
and are disposed to yield to the
flesh, remember what Paul said,
"But if ye bite and devour one
another, take heed that ye be not
consumed one of another." Fuss-
ing and fighting are not civil, being
beneath the dignity of creatures
made in God's image, let alone
being Christian. Spiritually speak-
ing, there are no winners in carnal
disputations. "Take heed!"

You know it's going to be a bad day when...


y Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
SYou know it's going to be a
bad day when you call your
answering service and they tell
you it's none of your business.
You know it's going to be a bad
day when your horn goes off
accidentally and remains stuck
as you follow a group of Hell's
Angels on the freeway. And for
those who are more chronologi-
cally gifted: You know it's going
to be a bad day when you sink
your teeth into a beautiful steak
and they stay there. You know it's
going to be a bad day when you
try to straighten out the wrinkles
in your socks only to find that
you aren't wearing any.
We all have days like that. We
all get discouraged. No one is
exempt.


A clergyman in his fifties had
written a manuscript for a book
and sent it to a host of.publishers
without success. He grew so dis-
couraged that he threw the man-
uscript into a waste paper bas-
ket. As his wife tried to salvage
the manuscript, he told her stern-
ly. "We've wasted enough time
on it. I forbid you to take it from
the wastebasket."
The next day his wife decided
that the manuscript should be
seen by at least one more pub-
lisher. Not wanting to disobey
her husband, she arrived at that
publisher's office with the most
unusual looking package that the
publisher's office had ever
received as a manuscript. Under
the wrapping of brown paper
was a wastepaper basket still
holding the clergyman's manu-
script.
This man's wife had been


able to achieve her goal without
having to go against the wishes
of her husband. She did not
remove the manuscript from the
waste paper basket, the publish-
er did. That manuscript was Nor-
man Vincent Peale's "The Power
of Positive Thinking," which at
last report has sold more than 30
million copies.
We all get discouraged. Even
Norman Vincent Peale can get
discouraged. All of us walk
through the valley at some time
in our lives. Our faith is what gets
us through. Faith is that unshake-
able sense of trust that keeps us
going through life's dark and dif-
ficult valleys.
We all get downhearted, but
we do not have to be defeated,
for Christ is with us. In our faith
we have that assurance. But in
our faith is also a promise. Faith,
to really be faith, always has a


forward look, a positive expecta-
tion, and an unquenchable hope.
There is a thread that runs
from the first chapters of the
Bible right on through the last
verses of Revelation. It is a thread
that continued through the early
church, the Reformation, the
Wesleyan revivals and is still to
be found among the followers of
Jesus today. That thread is, of
course, the knowledge that the
God who has created us will for-
ever be with us. We are His peo-
ple and the sheep of His pasture.
Embracing this in faith helps
nurture within us an unshake-
able sense of trust that will keep
us going through career changes,
bouts with cancer, the loss of
loved ones, and all of the wilder-
ness experiences and bad days
that are part of living in this
world.


Taking on all comers; obvious and not-so-obvious ills


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I watched the account of
newsman Bob Woodruff and his
wife Lee on television recently;
about how he was injured in an
attack in Iraq and how he came to
be restored to a more whole life.
He was in a coma for 36 days; not
surprising due to the amount of
brain damage suffered and the
liss of a large part of his left hemi-
sphere. The story told of those
who did not make it, those who
made it but were seriously and
permanently incapacitated, the
doctors and specialists who had
to say again and again "We don't
know" when families pressed for
answers to "Will he be all right?"
There was another shocking
detail pointed out in the story.
Bob Woodruff suffered from a
Clearly visible injury; plain for
everyone to see. There were also
Those who suffer during the war
from "closed head injuries" too.
Concussions and shocks caused
within-the-head injuries that were
not as obvious or visible. In fact, it
was conjectured that such


injuries might be even more
prevalent than those that were so
plainly visible. One of the
vignettes in the account told of a
serviceman who came home
from the war and "knew some-
thing was wrong" but showed no
visible signs of injury and how
long it took to finally find out the
extent of his very-real injuries. It is
natural to sympathize with per-
sons who are obviously injured
and visibly handicapped; others
who are just as worthy of our sup-,
port and understanding don't
always get it.
Recently, a newscast told
about a group on the east coast
asking their community to crack
down on persons who have
handicapped parking permits but
who are in good health. The
group claimed that healthy per-
sons are depriving those who
really have needs and that the city
should do something. I wondered
about just how many of those
who have less-than-visible
injuries suffer not only from their
injuries but from the criticism of
those who really don't know. I
also thought about the real fault
lying with those who provide the
documentation to enable persons


to get such permits, who most
likely will never hear of the first
complaint.
In one of the healing accounts
in the New Testament, Luke
writes about Jesus going to the
home of Simon and healing a
fever that struck his mother-in-
law. The account goes on to tell
that "When the sun was setting,
the people brought to Jesus all
who had various kinds of sick-
ness, and laying His hands on
each one, He healed them (Luke
4:38-40)." It seems insofar as ill-
ness was concerned, Jesus took
on all comers. There was no
triage or deciding who was and
who was not worthy; it was that
each of the persons presenting
with the "various kinds of sick-
ness" was touched.
I would suspect that today
Jesus would heal those who have
less visible injuries and sickness-
es; those who are addicted and
bear few visible marks of theie
sickness, those who repel us by
the sickness of their selfishness,
those who must be unable to care
about others and thus are incom-
plete in their development as
whole persons. In some senses, it
might seem that sickness and sin


are synonymous; but one tends to
get our pity and the other makes
us feel repulsed. Sometimes we
miss out because our reactions
get in the way; the Lord took on
all comers and saw beyond what
was outward into the hurting,
poorly developed, handicapped
spirit. That's much harder to do! It
doesn't mean being used or
manipulated, being abused just
because someone has problems;
it does mean recognizing and
working to heal, seeing beneath
the obvious and caring in spite of
ordinary human reactions. Peo-
ple tell us in many different ways
"I hurt" and some are more easily
heard or understood than others.
We are called to help heal in spite
of what we see; in spite of what
the victim thinks (or says) he
needs, in spite of what is obvious,
in spite of what "turns us off." The
people that saw Jesus heal all of
the various illnesses wanted Him
to stay around with them after-
ward. I find that He stays around
with ..us when we follow His
examples too; taking on all com-
ers, healing, caring, seeing
beyond the obvious and doing
good in spite of those who really
need it.
