Black Gold Jubilee April 29


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The annu-
al Black Gold Jubilee festival is
right around the corner. The
usually well-attended event is
scheduled to be held next Satur-
day, April 21. It is the 29th year
of the festival.
Sponsored by the City of
Belle Glade, the Belle Glade
Chamber of Commerce and the
Black Gold Jubilee Committee,


the event is expected to draw a
very large crowd of people this
year, according to Black Gold
Chairperson Cheryl Stein.
The Jubilee event will begin
with a 5K run/walk, slated to
begin at the Belle Glade Marina
at 7:30 a.m. Following that
event will be the Torry Island
Adventure Races, which are
scheduled to start at 9 a.m., also
at the marina.
One of the biggest attractions
of the festival, the parade, will


begin shortly thereafter at 10
a.m. down its usual route along
Main Street. The rest of the day's
events will then move to the
marina, where various forms of
entertainment, including
games, food, crafts and other
vendors will be waiting to keep
residents and other visitors
occupied throughout the day.
New events for the Black
Gold Jubilee include a corn
cook-off contest and a coed
softball tournament, according


A little Easter fun: Family Affair at Pioneer Park


to Ms. Stein.
Leading up to the Saturday
celebration are a number of
events tied into the festival,
including the Harvest Queen
Pageant this Saturday at the
Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center,
and a co-ed softball tourna-
ment. The tournament will be
played at Pioneer Park, April 14
and 15.
A gospel sing event, to be held
at Community United Methodist
Church, will take place on Sun-


day, April 15 at 3 p.m.
One of the few things miss-
ing this year may be the tradi-
tional fireworks display at the
end of the festival. Because of a
burning ban currently in place
throughout the county estab-
lished by the Palm Beach Coun-
-ty Fire Rescue, the Bureau of
Safety Services and the Florida
Division of Forestry the festi-
val committee is facing the cer-

Students turn
lives around

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On Mon-
day, April 9, the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO)
Eagle Academy held a chal-
lenge course for the young peo-
ple in the program.
According to Sgt. Willie Mor-
ris, the challenge course, also
known as "challenge by
choice,' is an exercise that
empowers participants to build
up their confidence and come
out of their shells.
The activities in the chal-
lenge course included the zip-
line, the wild woozy, the swing-
ing log and much more. These
activities, according to Sgt. Mor-


ris, get the participants to
engage in worthwhile team-
building exercises.
"What I tell the youth in the
academy is that if you don't
work together, you will fall,"
Sgt. Morris said.
The boys took on the chal-
lenge course in the morning,
while the girls in the program
participated later that after-
noon. The participants in the
course are primarily those who
the PBSO Eagle Academy said
are "at-risk" youth.
Eagle Academy program
services are generally based on
a military model which is pri-
marily focused on preventing
criminal involvement of the
youth in the community and at
school.

Letter to the Editor


Why wasn't pool open?
Attention Jess Santamaria
Dear Palm Beach County
Commissioners;
Often I feel people forget to
thank others in an expedient
manner when something is done
for them. I thanked the commis-
sioners present at the opening.
Last year I had the honor to attend
the opening of the Belle Glades
Pioneer Park Aquatic Center and
was thrilled that my child would
have the chance to swim, laugh
have fun and cool off!
We visited several times last
summer, for the time it was open,
and enjoyed ourselves completely
so Thank you but this thank you
also comes with a complaint. Just
today (the Thursday before East-
er)
I was going to take my child to
the pool and I tried to get a num-


ber for that location and was final-
ly given a cell phone # that is not
local to call. The first time I called
a child answered the phone the
second time an automated mes-
sage (nothing referring to Palm
Beach County Parks and Rec. I
called the (561)966-6600 number
and explained to the operator that
I must have received the wrong
number she was rather curt and
said this was the only number she
had. Then she proceeded to
explain that ALL County Pools in
Palm Beach County are still
closed I thought this odd so I
called ALL the other pools and
with the exception of two they
were ALL open. Now I find myself
wondering why would the only
pool in the Glades area that is
accessible to the general public
be a "Seasonal" pool? Our pool is
not within 20 not even 30 miles of


the next public pool. Our pool is
not 5 miles from the beach and
our children don't have too much
to offer them when it comes to
cooling off on a hot spring day
(and it is Hot today not even a
hose in the yard due to water
restrictions)
We pay taxes out here! I think
your decision to make this a "sea-
sonal" pool (meaning it will not
open until the end of May) is
unfair. Maybe you could consider
opening like other cities and
areas. Maybe offer our Geriatric
Population a low impact water
exercise class in the mid morn-
ings Mommy and Me swimming
lessons for infants and Moms -
Pool/Water Safety classes chil-
dren's swimming lessons in the
afternoon or swim time for the
general public. You have this
wonderful facility and when it


heats up here it should be open to
the public. This is just my opinion
but sometimes being treated like
a red headed step child because
you live in the Glades is not appre-
ciated.
The county does not have a
problem with increasing tax
rates? So give us some of the ben-
efits that are supplied to our fel-
low Palm Beach County Resi-
dents on the Coast Please.
(And the whole County con-
tact number cell phone thing-
ummm doesn't seem real profes-
sional you might want to at least
have the voicemail state who you
are calling and what department
of the county they work for. And
ask the less than delightful recep-
tionist to try to be a little nicer.
Thanks)
Thank You,

25th anniversary


Black tie reception
to follow after
Gary Morris perform

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE The Dolly
Hand Cultural Arts Center of Palm
Beach Community College will be
celebrating its 25th Anniversary on
Tuesday, April 17.
The celebration will begin at 7
p.m., with county artist Gary Morris
to perform in the theatre. He will be
making his fourth appearance at
the Dolly Hand Center.
Following the performance,
there will be a Black Tie Reception
Gala, with food and music. Mr.
Morris will be at the reception to
meet and greet guests.
There will be various elected
officials and out-of-town guests
slated to appear at the celebration,
including Ms. Dolly Hand and her
husband, Homer.
The purpose of the celebration
is to show honor and appreciation
to the over 400,000 patrons who
have supported the Dolly Hand
Center, including about 315,000
children, according to Leigh Wood-
ham.
According to the center repre-
sentative, the patrons and support-
ers, "Have been the wind beneath
ourwings."
The Dolly Hand Center has had
a successful run since being dedi-


cated on April 17, 1982, with Dolly
Hand in mind.
Originally, the theatre was going
to be called the Glades Cultural
Center. What Ms. Hand didn't
know prior to the building dedica-
tion was that the building was
going to be named in her honor.
She didn't know until she drove up
to the location on the night of the
grand opening and saw the first
sign of it in bold display.
Over the past 25 years, officials
said that a vast number of perform-
ances have been held at the Dolly
Hand Cultural Arts Center, includ-
ing past performances of Step Afri-
ka! and Meet The Perfect Man,
among others.
The Dolly Hand Center has also
been host to many community
events, including the 2007 Eco-
nomic Alliance, the current display
of the Haitian Exhibit and many
more.
The Palm Beach Community
College Foundation is the primary
underwriter for the gala.
Debbie Bowles, the box office
supervisor, said that being at the
Dolly Hand Center has been a great
experience for her.
"It's been great working in the
theatre atmosphere, especially
when the children come here for
the first time with their eyes wide as
they enter the Dolly Hand Center,"
said Ms. Bowles.
For more information regarding
this event, please call Ms. Wood-
ham or Ms. Bowles at 993-1160.

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission
(PSC) has directed Verizon Flori-
da LLC (Verizon) to refund
approximately $63,000 to the
company's customers. Accord-
ing to the results of a recent PSC
service quality inspection, Veri-
zon failed to issue rebates to
thousands of qualified cus-
tomers between June 1, 2005,
and Feb. 7,2007.
"The Commission regularly
conducts comprehensive serv-
ice quality inspections of Flori-
da's regulated telecommunica-
tions carriers to ensure
ratepayers are receiving safe,
affordable, and reliable service,"
said PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar. "PSC staff work diligently
to identify areas of concern for
consumers and guide service
providers appropriately."
As a part of the PSC service
quality evaluation program, staff
discovered that Verizon did not
automatically issue rebates to
customers who experienced
more than 24 hours of interrupt-
ed service. Verizon's subsequent
investigation revealed a number
of factors contributed to the
missed rebates, including pro-
gramming and human errors.
At the PSC's direction, Veri-
zon has corrected the software
errors and retrained its employ-
ees. Commissioners today
approved the company's refund
proposal, which is estimated to
take six months to complete.
Verizon will begin issuing the
credits during the first billing
cycle in April 2007. Based on the
average credit per customer,
Verizon estimates the total
refund amount to be approxi-
mately $63,000. Verizon will
report the actual total of the
rebates in its final report to be

Clewiston Middle
School invites
U.S. Air Force band

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE It isn't every
day that one of the best sym-
phonic bands in the country
plays in the Glades. Needless to
say, organizers of the concert are
hopeful that local residents will
come out this Saturday to sup-
port the event.
When Luke Hall, Clewiston
Middle School's band director,
first heard that the U.S. Air Force
Band had a tour scheduled in the
South Florida area, on a whim
he decided he'd try his chances
at calling the organization and
seeing whether they would be
interested in playing in Clewis-
ton or Belle Glade for free -
something that seemed like a
long-shot at first.


"It's wonderful. It's a free opportunity for people
to see the finesse of the band, their magnitude
and skill. It shouldn't be missed."
Laura Smith,
Clewiston band boosters


When the Air Force Band
called back to say they were
interested, Luke Hall was ecstat-
ic.
"I was very excited about it,"
remembered Mr. Hall. "This is
one of the world's premier sym-
phonic bands. It's a great oppor-
tunity."
The band's 35-voice choir
and presidential honor guard
will be playing at a concert to be
held at Glades Central Commu-
nity High School's gymnasium.
The doors are scheduled to open
at 3 p.m., while the actual con-
cert is slated to begin at 4 p.m.
According to Mr. Hall, the per-
formance is about two hours in


length, with the band perform-
ing everything from contempo-
rary movie music, to pops
music, to classical a wide vari-
ety of music.
For Mr. Hall, whose own stu-
dents will attend the perform-
ance, the concert will serve to
show the kids what they can
accomplish if they put their
minds to it.
"These are the cream of the
crop musicians, they're in regu-
lar demand as performers," said
Mr. Hall. "My kids are coming
out en masse."
The Air Force Band is one of
the five major branches of sym-
phonic bands associated with

the various branches of the mili-
tary, with the U.S. Marine Band
being another one of the more
famous of the groups.
Having the Air Force Band
play locally, Mr. Hall said, is
something that as many resi-
dents as possible should take
advantage of. Currently, only a
fraction of the available tickets
have been requested by resi-
dents from throughout the lake
region Mr. Hall hopes that
many more will secure their tick-
ets before or just prior to the
show.
Mr. Hall is also appreciative of
Glades Central High School's
band director, who helped to
allow the event to take place at
the school possible. According
to Mr. Hall, the focus from the
beginning was to involve local
high school programs to take
part in the event.
Tickets are available at
Clewiston Middle School leading
up to the day of the event, with
tickets made available during the
actual day of the event. Tickets
are free.
Laura Smith, with the Clewis-
ton band boosters, agrees that
the show will be one to look for-
ward to.
"It's wonderful," said Ms.
Smith. "It's a free opportunity for
people to see the finesse of the
band, their magnitude and skill.
It shouldn't be missed."
If the concert is well-attend-
ed, organizers say there is a pos-
sibility that the band could make
a return in the future, as well as
other military bands, including
the coast guard, which is now
finalizing its schedule for next
year, including tours in South
Florida.

GLADES

-Electric Cooperative, Inc.


"Neighbors Working for Neighbors"

April 5, 2007
Office of the Governor
The Capitol
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001
Dear Governor Crist:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative headquartered in Moore Haven, Florida, I am writing this letter to express
our support for the approval of FPL's proposed Glades Power Park coal project. Like you, we are Florida residents who value our state's unique
and natural beauty, and we work hard in our operations to protect its natural resources. As general manager of a fast growing, non-profit electric
distribution cooperative, I also am convinced that we need a reliable, affordable supply of electric energy to meet Florida's economic needs. The
FPL project will do both.
Glades County is a rural county that needs clean industry, good jobs, and tax revenues. Florida's environmental regulations are some of the
strictest in the country. The FPL project will use one of the most efficient, clean pulverized coal technologies available as well as state of the art
in pollution control. This combination will insure that it will meet or exceed our stringent environmental requirements and therefore protect
Glades County, the Everglades, and the rest of Florida. This project will also bring hundreds of much needed permanent and construction jobs
to Glades County that will provide opportunity to our residents and their children and significantly increase the tax revenues that can be used
to build schools and make other sorely needed improvements that are afforded more affluent counties.
FPL's project will benefit Florida by supplying additional generating capacity necessary to meet the ever increasing demand for electric energy
driven by our population growth and customer use. It will also benefit the entire state by increasing the diversity of Florida's fuel portfolio and
reducing our reliance on natural gas which, as we have learned, becomes extremely vulnerable when hurricane storms affect the Gulf of Mexico.
Having an additional electric generating facility that will be able to store several months of fuel as opposed to hours, will greatly benefit Florida's
recovery efforts when these disasters strike. Additionally, this project will help reduce our dependence on foreign supplies of energy.
I realize there has been a great deal of discussion concerning whether or not the FPL project is right for Florida. Glades Electric Cooperative
relies on Seminole Electric Cooperative to provide us wholesale power. As a member of Seminole's Board of Trustees, I recently reviewed the
results of a comprehensive review of available generating technologies and fuels before our Board approved the addition of a third coal unit. I
was pleased to know that FPL is proposing essentially the same technology and pollution control equipment as Seminole's proposed coal plant
in Putnam County. I also know that based on Seminole's experience in Putnam County, a well thought out project, using state of the art technology and
the most advanced pollution control equipment will be accepted by the residents, provide numerous benefits, and protect the environment We
believe the FPL project will be as beneficial to Glades County as the Seminole Project is to Putnam County.
For all the above reasons, we strongly support FPL's Glades coal project. I remain...

Sincerely,




L.T. Todd
General Manager and CEO

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, April 12, 2007


David Zechman named CEO


of Glades General


WEST PALM BEACH The
Health Care District of Palm Beach
County announced last week that
David M. Zechman is the Chief
Executive Officer of Glades General
Hospital in
Belle Glade *'-
effective April *
11,2007.
Mr. Zech- "'
man will also
participate in "'
the senior man-
agement team -
at the Health A ir
Care District, David
which owns Zechman
and operates
Glades General Hospital, a 73-bed
acute care facility which has been
serving Glades residents since
1946. In addition, Mr. Zechman
will play a key role in the District's
project now underway to construct
a new state-of-the-art regional hos-
pital to serve all the communities in
western Palm Beach County.
"David Zechman brings a
wealth of relevant experience and
commitment to mission from his
25-year career in the health care
field," said C. David Goodlett, Chair
of the Health Care District Board of
Commissioners and Vice President
of Government and Community
Relations for the Sugar Cane Grow-
ers Cooperative of Florida. "His
enthusiasm about the opportunity
will go along way in working with
our dedicated physicians of today


with an eye to supplement addi-
tional high quality doctors."
Most recently, Mr. Zechman
held several executive positions at
Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's
HealthCare system in Louisville,
Kentucky. From 2002 to 2005 Zech-
man served as Chief Executive Offi-
cer of Jewish Hospital Heart and
Lung Institute and Vice President of
Jewish Hospital in Louisville. In
2005 he was promoted to President
of the Jewish Hospital Health Net-
work, a regional network of four
rural hospitals in Kentucky and
Indiana. In his previous position,
Zechman was Vice President of
Cardiovascular Services at St.
Luke's-Shawnee Mission Health
System in Kansas City, Missouri. In
that role he served as Administrator
for the Mid America Heart Institute
and was responsible for adminis-
trative operations and planning for
system cardiac services at the 202-
bed Heart Institute.
"Leading Glades General Hospi-
tal into the future is a tremendous
opportunity," said Mr. Zechman.
"The goal for our new regional
health facility is to provide world
class quality of care and service that
attracts patients and doctors from
our community."
Mr. Zechman earned his B.S.
degree from Miami University in
Oxford, Ohio, and his Master's
Degree in Public Administration,
with an emphasis in health care,
from Cleveland State University. He


Hospital

is a Certified Health Care Executive
with the American College of
Healthcare Executives.
Glades General Hospital, the
only public hospital in Palm Beach
County, is an acute care facility that
provides a 24-hour physician
staffed ER and a full-range of inpa-
tient and out-patient services.
Since reacquiring Glades General
Hospital in May 2004, the District
has invested $3.5 million dollars in
the latest medical technologies,
including a 16-slice CT scanner, a
Picture Archiving and Communica-
tion System (PACS), and fully elec-
tronic medical records.
"We are proud of the care that is
delivered at Glades General Hospi-
tal each and every day," said
Dwight D. Chenette, the Chief
Executive Officer of the Health Care
District. "David Zechman will build
upon that sense of mission while
providing direction and input to the
retirement of Glades General Hos-
pital and the construction of a new
regional medical center."
The new 70-bed hospital will be
built on a centrally-located 50-acre
campus at the intersection of Hook-
er Highway and U.S. 441, the cross-
roads of the Glades communities.
The new medical facility is seen by
the Health Care District, community
leaders and medical professionals
as a means of providing a more pro-
gressive and integrated health care
delivery system to residents in the
Lake Okeechobee region.


Executive director appointed to



Glades Healthcare Foundation


WEST PALM BEACH The
Glades Healthcare Foundation
announced that H. Patricia (Pat)
Lord has become Executive Direc-
tor effective March 13, 2007. The
not-for-profit Foundation was
formed in October 2006 to support
the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County's campaign to build
and operate a new 70-bed state-of-
the-art medical facility serving the
communities in western Palm
Beach County.
As Executive Director, Ms. Lord
is responsible for planning, organ-
izing, and implementing the Foun-
dation's activities and will work in
collaboration with Palm Health-
care Foundation in West Palm
Beach. The Glades Healthcare
Foundation aims to raise $20 mil-
lion in capital funds through chari-
table donations, grants, and other
fundraising activities. Once the
goals of the initial capital campaign
are met, the. Foundation will
remain active to support healthcare
needs throughout the Lake Okee-
chobee region. The new hospital,
which will be centrally located at
the crossroads of the Glades on the


southwest corner of Hooker High-
way and U.S. 441, is expected to be
completed within three years.
"Pat knows and has a deep
respect for our communities and
constituencies here in Palm Beach
County," adds Dwight D. Chenette,
Chief Executive
Officer of the
Health Care
District. "She
has just com- -
pleted a very
successful
tenure as Direc-
tor of Major I
Gifts for the

College Foun-
dation, where she helped secure
more than $5 million in endowed
scholarships, building capital, and
program support." Ms. Lord also
helped to steward a $1 million gift
to support the Countess de Hoernle

Building on the Boca Raton
campus of the college.
In October, 2006 the Health Care

Healthcare Foundation Board. Act-
ing upon the recommendation of
the Glades General Hospital Board,

County Elections Supervisor


holds 'College
WEST PALM BEACH The
Supervisor of Elections Office
recently completed its first offi-
cial "College Week" voter regis-
tration drive. The series of events
held the end of March took place
to encourage university-level stu-
dents to register to vote.
Campuses all across Palm
Beach County participated in the
drive which has been very suc-
cessful with high school students
in the past. Students had the
opportunity to register, update
their current information,
request an absentee ballot and
some were even able to demo a
voting machine. They could also
sign up for temporary staff posi-
tions and volunteer opportunities
for community outreach. Each
registrant was given a specially
designed red, white and blue
"iVote" silicon bracelet.
The college voter registration
drive took place at the Boca
Raton campus of Florida Atlantic
University, where some govern-
ment and social work classes
actually received a civics lesson in
the classroom. The drive also
took place at the FAU MacArthur
campus in Jupiter, Florida Career
College, Keiser College, Lynn Uni-


Week'
versity, Medvance Institute, Nova
Southeastern University, Palm
Beach Atlantic, as well as the vari-
ous Palm Beach Community Col-
lege campuses, and the Universi-
ty of Phoenix. A total of 366
students were registered, with
the majority choosing Democrat
as their party affiliation and a
handful signing up to be poll
workers for future elections.
The bi-annual iVote Project is
coordinated by Adina Serell, spe-
cial projects coordinator for the
Supervisor of Elections Office.
"Looking ahead to the next
major election in 2008, the cur-
rent momentum around young
voter turnout is a group all par-
ties will be targeting," said Ms.
Serell. "The Palm Beach County
Elections Office hopes to
encourage students to become
active in the electoral process, as
well as to volunteer," she added.

Contract signing benefits student educations


WEST PALM BEACH Take
Stock in Children of Palm Beach
County has awarded four-year
full-tuition scholarships to 65
deserving, low-income students.
A contract signing ceremony was
held for the students and their
families on March 28, on the
beautiful campus of Northwood
University. Ms. Jennifer Rivera,
educational reporter for WPTV
Channel 5, brilliantly hosted the
ceremony and congratulated all
the students.
Sixty-five new students from
15 different schools all over Palm
Beach County along with their
parents signed contracts promis-
ing to maintain good grades,
good behavior, remain drug and


crime free, meet weekly with their
mentor, and attend enrichment
workshops. Upon graduation
from high school and completion
of the Take Stock Program, they
will they be presented with the
scholarships.
Each student was called to the
stage to actually sign their names
on a large contract prepared for
the occasion as their parents and
relatives watched proudly. At the
end, they were all applauded by
the audience of over 200 people,
congratulating them for taking the
first step to a college degree and
encouraging them to finish their
educational journey.
Ms. Camelia Sherrod, currently
a Take Stock in Children program


participant, spoke to the new stu-
dents and encouraged them to
take advantage of the program
and continue on to college. She
has been under the guidance of
her mentor, Mayor Lois Frankel
for the past several years. Mayor
Frankel also addressed the audi-
ence and spoke about her experi-
ence as a mentor.
"You see how Camelia got up
and spoke, this little girl would
not have done that nine years ago
because she was very shy and
quiet. We have been working
together and now she has gained
confidence and presence to stand
in front of you and speak," Mayor
Frankel said, referring to Camelia.
Donors who have made these


scholarships possible were also
recognized at the ceremony and
the major sponsors received
appreciation plaques for their
$50,000 gifts, including Florida
Crystals Corporation, the
Gertrude E. Skelly Foundation,
and the GEO Group, Inc. At the
same time, Mr. Pepe Fanjul from
Florida Crystals Corp. presented
their $50,000 check to Take Stock
in Children at the Ceremony.

Residents 'Bee' aware of Africanized honey bees

School, is enjoying the Spring Fling as he is wearing a

TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today announced that
public education activities are
under way in the state's effort to
protect people and animals from
the dangers associated with the
growing population of African-
ized honey bees (AHB). AHB are
the defensive cousins of Euro-
pean honey bees who, through
Florida's vital honey bee industry,
provide pollination that result in
the production of approximately
one-third of the food we eat.
The Department monitors
over 500 AHB bait traps through-
out the state. Since their initial
discovery in Florida in 2002, AHB
have been positively identified in
over 20 Florida counties, with the
majority of stinging incidents in
South Florida.
"Every week, reports of possi-
ble Africanized honey bee nest
sightings or stinging incidents are
received by the Department,"
Bronson said. "We have formed
an AHB inter-agency communi-
cations group to help get the
word out about things the public
can do to prevent attacks. The
motto of the group, 'Bee Aware,


Submitted/www.ucsd.edu
Without lab tests it is impossi-
ble to tell an Africanized
honey and a honey bee apart.
If chased by a bee, run in a
straight line to a house or car,
get inside a house or car and
stay there until the bee leaves.
Look, Listen and Run,' was cho-
sen because if people will regu-
larly monitor their surroundings
and run inside a protective struc-
ture, when threatened, they can
avoid potentially dangerous,
painful attacks from Africanized
honey bees."
The Department has been
working with the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agriculture Sciences (UF/IFAS)
to: make presentations to over


100 statewide organizations;
exhibit information at confer-
ences, festivals, and fairs; distrib-
ute thousands of information
packets; and provide interviews
to news media and interested
parties on AHB. This grassroots
public education effort has result-
ed in reaching over 4 million peo-
ple. Ongoing outreach program
efforts include identifying part-
nering opportunities at major
county events. The Department
plans to reach as many people as
possible in all Florida counties to
deliver important messages
about AHB and Florida's impor-
tant beekeeping industry.
The Department's helpline
often receives calls from people
who know about the dangers of
AHB, but are confused about
what they are supposed to do if
they see a nest of bees. People
should stay away from insect
nests and call a licensed pest
control c. i 'i to remove the
nests. They should never try to
remove a nest themselves. A list
of licensed pest control opera-
tors by county is available at
http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi/p
lantinsp/ahb.html.
To prevent stinging incidents,


the Department urges the public to
follow these important guidelines:
If allergic to bees, always
have a bee sting kit available.
Eliminate potential AHB
nesting sites. Check walls and
eaves of structures. Plug holes.
Stay alert for bees. Because
noise excites AHB, look for bees
in work areas before using
power equipment such as weed
eaters, lawnmowers and chain-
saws.
If bees chase you, run away
and get inside a car or building.
Contact a licensed pest con-
trol company to remove nest. Do
not attempt to remove it yourself.
Seek medical attention if
needed.
"It is important to remember
that managed honey bee
colonies are critical to Florida
agriculture and these more e n-
tle honey bees should not be
confused wvilh the highly defen-
sive Africanized honey bee,"
Bronson said. "Floridians are
used to living among dangerous
animals and insects. Education is
the key to staying safe."

Students


should 'Go


Higher'
TALLAHASSEE Education
Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg
announced recently the launch of
a new campaign, "Go Higher-
Get Accepted," to help high school
seniors enroll at a community col-
lege in Florida before graduation.
"It is vitally important for stu-
dents to continue their education
after high school," said Commis-
sioner Blomberg. "Nearly 90 per-
cent of students say they want to
pursue more education after grad-
uation, but only half of them do.
This campaign helps students
understand their options and
achieve their goals."
The Florida Department of Edu-
cation and FACTS.org, Florida's
online student advising system, are
coordinating the statewide cam-
paign. During April, a team of 23
community college administrators
will visit 94 high schools through-
out Florida. These teams will help
students assess their career inter-
ests, choose the type of degree or
certificate to pursue, submit an
application for admission and
apply for financial aid. FACTS.org
is coordinating the statewide cam-
paign and providing promotional
support with Web pages, direct
mail pieces, posters and other
materials. It is expected that the
campaign will successfully reach
more than 32,000 students.
"Community colleges are a
great opportunity for all Florida
students to get a quality education
at an affordable price," said Com-
munity College Chancellor David
Armstrong. "We encourage every
high school student to enroll in
their local community college and
achieve the American Dream
through a great college education
that will lead to an outstanding
career and higher quality of life."
The campaign is modeled
after the 2006 "College Connec-
tion" program at Austin Commu-
nity College at San Marcos High
School in Texas. In the first year of
the program, the percentage of
San Marcos students enrolled at
Austin Community College
increased from 34 to 45 percent.
That program has now expanded
to include 22 of the 30 districts in
Austin's service area. Several
other community colleges-in
Texas are now-considering mod-
eling their programs after the
Austin program.
"Florida saw an opportunity to
borrow a campaign that was so
successful in Texas and apply it
here in Florida," said FACTS.org
Executive Director Connie
Graunke, Ph.D. "Our goal is that
every high school senior, by the
time they walk across the stage to
get their diploma, will have
received a letter of acceptance to a
college or university. That will
make the next step of going to col-
lege easier."
For a list of "Go Higher-Get
Accepted" events, including partic-
ipating community colleges and
high schools, visit

to attend, officials said.
The current session is a six-
month residential program that
began Jan. 8, with a graduation
ceremony scheduled for June 1 at
Palm Beach Community College.
For one of the boys in the pro-
gram, 13-year-old Daniel Gonza-
lez, the Eagle Academy has
changed his outlook on life.
According to Daniel, prior to
enlisting in the Eagle Academy,
his relationships with his mother,
stepfather and two younger
brothers were fractured. He
would hang out with the wrong


Manager

after the commission voted to ter-
minate former City Manager Vin-
cent Finizio.
Mr. Finizio lost his job last
month amid allegations of
malfeasance or misfeasance. A
letter the former manager sent to
Representative Alcee Hastings'
officer and Governor Charlie Crist,
and the sudden termination of'
several city hall employees may
have played a role in the dis-
missal.
The Range Rider program, a
program that offers its services
free of charge to municipalities
searching for city managers and
administrator, originally submit-
ted 12 names for consideration.
Of the 12 applicants, the com-
missioners ranked all candidates


crowd, by his own admission. He
said he often stayed up late, van-
dalized property and disrespected
his family.
Daniel said watching his moth-
er deal with his bad behavior
played a big role in his choosing
to join the Eagle Academy.
"The Eagle Academy experi-
ence now helps me communi-
cate with my family better," said
Daniel. "It taught me how to
appreciate what my family does
for me."
There are many stories like his
at the program.
A -participant who could, to a
degree, attest to that notion is 16-
year old John Massengill.
John said he joined the Eagle
Academy because he wanted his
confidence to be stronger. He
remembers running away from
home, abusing marijuana and
also associating with a negative


and selected four names as final-
ists. They are: William Under-
wood, Lester Baird Sr., Matthew
Brock and the team of Alan Keith
James and Sharon Merchant.
Prior to the April 24 interviews,
commissioners will participate in
a workshop meeting April 18 to
discuss how questions will be set
up.
According to Mayor Donald
Garrett, the workshop meeting
will enable the commissioner to
obtain a thorough understanding
of the ranking process, which will
be used during the interviews.
The commissioners also voted
in favor of providing various travel
accommodations to the appli-
cants, with Commissioner Gwen-
dolyn Asia-Williams voting
against the issue.
The Vice Mayor Kendall said
that with four candidates for the
interview process, each interview

After completing the challenge
course on Monday, John said a
big contributing factor in his life
was the passing of his stepfather
when he was only 13 years old. It
was easy for him then to stop car-
ing about life in general, he said.
That has changed, he said.
"The Eagle Academy has
helped me to stop, think and
open my eyes in terms of enjoying
the freedom that I have," said
John. "1 think the Eagle Academy
has helped me a lot."
According to his mother, Misty,
the Eagle Academy program is a
vital part of her and her son's
lives,
"I feel that the Eagle Academy
should be a program that all kids
should attend," said Ms. Massen-
gill.

utes. The four interviews would
then be completed within two

"Once the interview process is
done, we will rank the candidates
and choose the one who scored
the highest," said Vice-Mayor
Kendall.
The mayor said that the com-
missioners will be meeting with
the new interim city manager on
the night of the selection.
"We'll try to get the right per-
son, using the right process," said
Mayor Garrett. "The process will
be fair and courteous to get the

'Mudding' destroying lake bottom, says FWC


Submitted photo/FWC
With the level of Lake Okeechobee low, some people have
been driving ATVs and four-wheel drive vehicles on the
exposed lake bottom, damaging the~Take's ecosystem by
killing the emerging plants. FWC is-working with area law
enforcement agencies to stop it. It is against the law to drive
on the lake bottom. Those caught doing so can be charged
with destruction of state property.

LAKE OKEECHOBEE -
Drought has a left wide expanse
of Lake Okeechobee dry, leading
to another threat to the endan-
gered lake. People driving ATVs
and four-wheel drive vehicles on
the lake bottom are killing the
vegetation and destroying poten-
tial fish habitat.
"When the lake is so dry there
is exposed lake bottom, a lot of
people for fun -- take their
ATVs and other vehicles and go
mudding," said Dani Moschella,
spokesperson for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC). "That is detri-
mental to the lake bottom."
"Last weekend there were
reports of hundreds of vehicles out
there on the lake," she said.
When the water levels are low,
the areas around the edge of the
lake dry out. This allows seeds that
are in the soil to germinate and start
to grow. When the rains come and
the lake returns to normal levels,
these new plants provide essential


habitat for fish.
Ms. Moschella said the small
fish especially need this vegetation
for cover.
"When you drive an ATV over
that lake bottom, it kills that emerg-
ing vegetation," she said.
Ms. Moschella said she is hop-
ing if anglers in the area understand
how driving on the lake bottom
damages the fisheries, they will
help spread the word about the
problem.
Driving on the lake bottom is
against the law, she said. Anyone
who does this can be charged with
destruction of state land.
Ms. Moschella said FWC is
working with the South Florida
Water Management District and
local law enforcement agencies to
put up more signs around the lake
and to enforce the law.
She said those who are driving
on the lake are also leaving
behind litter.
"People are going out there,
leaving beer bottles and Gatorade
cans it's a mess and that is no
good for the lake either," she said.

Florida strengthens protection for the Everglades


WEST PALM BEACH The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) last week for-
malized a groundbreaking rule that
further guarantees water to protect
and restore America's Everglades.
Known as the Regional Water
Availability Rule, this first-of-its kind
requirement prevents water users
from tapping the famed River of
Grass for new or additional sup-
plies of water. Setting aside the
water in the Everglades for environ-
mental restoration, permitted users
like urban water utilities along
Florida's southeast coast will now
have to find alternative sources to
supply regional growth.,
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District has taken another
significant step for protecting and
restoring America's Everglades,"
said Michael Sole, Secretary of the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection. "This visionary
rule safeguards Florida's invest-
ments, ensures that our communi-
ties manage growth responsibly
and provides additional guarantees
for making water available for the
environment first."
In South Florida, water suppli-
ers in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm


"This legally binding rule is essential for pro-
tecting the water in the Everglades, because
water is the key to restoration success. Our
Regional Water Availability Rule represents a
strong and very clear policy statement that the
South Florida Water Management District will
protect water for the environment."
Carol Ann Wehle,
SFWMD Executive Director


Beach and Monroe counties cur-
rently depend on an estimated 500
million gallons of water per day
from the Everglades to recharge
and sustain the Biscayne Aquifer -
their primary drinking water
source. Recognizing the need for
more protective limits for the River
of Grass, the District last year began
developing the Regional Water
Availability Rule to limit increased
reliance on the Everglades system
and Everglades-dependent ground-
water, formally identifying them as
"sources of limited availability."
"This rule is a big win for the
environment," said Kevin McCarty,
Governing Board Chairman of the


South Florida Water Management
District. "South Florida is a different
place than it was just 30 years ago
and our water resources are not
unlimited. This rule boldly address-
es regional growth and the need to
protect the natural system for
future generations."
Cities needing additional water
supplies will now be required to
seek sources that are not dependent
on the Everglades for recharge.
These alternative water supply solu-
tions may include recycling water,
using reclaimed water to recharge
the Biscayne Aquifer or drawing
water from the deeper Floridan
Aquifer, which requires treatment


to remove saltwater content.
"This legally binding rule is
essential for protecting the water in
the Everglades, because water is
the key to restoration success,"
added SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Our Regional
Water Availability Rule represents a
strong and very clear policy state-
ment that the South Florida Water
Management District will protect
water for the environment."
Existing water supply permits
are not being revoked. The rule
affects new applicants seeking a
permit and existing permittees
seeking permit renewal. The rule
specifically prevents permitted
water supply allocations from being
greater than levels that existed prior
to April 2006. To prevent shortfalls in
meeting current public drinking
water needs, the rule provides a
grace period for renewal applicants,
provided they are actively develop-
ing alternative supplies.
The District sought extensive
public input on the rule, holding
five rounds of workshops and issu-
ing five draft rules in response to
comments from stakeholders
before developing and publishing
the final draft.

Drought increases certain danger of wildfire


By Katrina Elsken
INI Florida
As the drought continues on
South Florida, the danger of wild-
fire increases.
"Probably our biggest concern
in the Everglades are muck fires,"
said Steve Coughlin, wildlife biol-
ogist with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC). He explained that the
soil in the Everglades conserva-
tion areas is highly organic. When
it dries out, the muck can easily
catch fire, he said.
If the water level falls below a
foot and a half below the surface,
the area is at risk, Mr. Coughlin
explained.
A muck fire can cause perma-
nent damage to the conservation
area, he said, because once the
organic soils are consumed by
fire, the ecosystem in that area
can't be repaired.
"If we have a muck fire that is a
permanent effect," he said. "That
is our bigger concern."
Mr. Coughlin said during the
2001 drought, there were muck
fires in the Everglades.


"In 2001, we were able to
move some big pumps in and
inundate those areas and get the
fires out but it still did some dam-
age," he said. "If that happens this
year, we don't know if we'll have
water to put them out or not."
Mr. Coughlin said the public
should be very careful not to start
any fires.
"All we need is a lightning
strike or a fire started by a mem-
ber of the public," he said.
"This year, we're not just dry in
any one area of south Florida,
we're dry from Kissimmee area on
down," he said. "There is no back-
up water anyone can send to us."
"We have a long ways to go
before the wet season is going to
kick in," he said.
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson has designated
this week, April 8 -14 as Wildfire
Awareness Week.
"March, April and May are usu-
ally the most active months of
Florida's year round wildfire sea-
son, and coupled with this year's
current drought situation, there is
a very good chance that we will


see an increase in wildfire activity
in the next few months," Mr.
Bronson said.
The Department of Agricul-
ture's Division of Forestry (DOF)
is conducting a Fire Weather Edu-
cation Campaign during Wildfire
Awareness Week in order to edu-
cate people about the effect
weather can have on fire behav-
ior. At the heart of the campaign
will be a contest where TV, online
newspaper viewers and radio lis-
teners are eligible to win a Fire
Danger Weather Kit. Participants
become eligible to win by correct-
ly answering questions provided
by the DOF each day.

Use caution when you are around alligators


By Katrina Elsken
INI FLORIDA
Recently boaters on Lake Okee-
chobee called the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) for
help. Their boat was stuck on a
sandbar in shallow water. The fish-
erman and his friends could have
easily walked to shore, except for
one problem they were sur-
rounded by alligators.
The water was too shallow for
the OCSO boats to reach the
boaters, so a member of the OCSO
Search and Rescue Auxiliary used
his own airboat to rescue the men.
As water levels in Lake Okee-
chobee drop, alligators that live in
the big lake area are being seen in
greater numbers.
"Low water levels tend to con-
centrate alligators in the areas that
still have water," explained Blair
Hayman, a biologist with the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC). "People tend
to see more of them."
The alligator population of Lake
Okeechobee is pretty stable, she
explained. While counts of any
wild animal cannot be completely
accurate, she said their surveys esti-
mate that Lake Okeechobee is
hoine to about 100,000 alligators.
Surveys done each year help the
FWC determine the number of alli-
gator hunt permits that will be
issued for each hunting area.


"A short term drought does not
have much effect on alligators,"
she explained. She said the low
lake levels force alligators into
smaller areas, but also concentrate
the prey animals into these same
areas.
"In some cases it might even
make it easier for the alligator to
catch its prey," she said, "but
there's also more competition for
the food."
Even if food is scarce, "alligators
can go quite a long time without
eating," she said.
"A long term drought could
have a more noticeable effect. But
alligators are pretty resilient ani-
mals," said Ms. Hayman.
While alligator attacks on
humans are rare, this concentra-
tion of alligators in the water does
make it more dangerous.
"It's not a good idea to wade
through an area where there are
lots of alligators," Ms. Hayman
explained.
Alligators are also more notice-
able this time of year because they
become more active as the weath-
er warms up, she said.
"Sometimes there is a public
perception that the alligator popu-
lation is exploding, but that is not
true," Ms. Hayman continued.
She said the protection meas-
ures over the last 20 years have
allowed the alligator population to
recover to the point where the state


could allow alligator hunts.
"The annual hunt allows people
to enjoy the benefit of this natural
resource," she said.
The hunt also helps prevent
overpopulation.
"In areas where the alligator
population has increased, we
allow for more harvests by issuing
more permits," she said.
She said just because the per-
mits are issued, this does not mean
exactly that many alligators will'be
killed. The hunters don't always
harvest as many alligators as their
permits would allow.
"Anytime you are in an area
where there are alligators, be
aware of their presence," Ms. Hay-
man advised.
She said this especially is true at
night, when alligators are more
active.
Alligators pose a special threat
to dogs. Never allow dogs to play in
the water or on the shoreline
where alligators are present, she
said.
"Gator bites are rare," she said.
"But they usually happen in the
water or at the water's edge. Some-
times people step on an alligator
and it reacts by biting."
According to the FWC, alligators
abound in all 67 counties and have
shared marshes, swamps, rivers
and lakes with people for centuries.
But because more individuals are
seeking waterfront property and


water-related activities increase
during the warm months, people
should be alert when they are in
areas where alligators could be
present.
The current drought has also
forced some alligators to move to
find water. Because of this alliga-
tors may now be found in ponds
and waterways where they were
not previously seen.
FWC officials advise Floridians
closely supervise children when
they are playing in or around water.
State law. prohibits contact with
alligators, and it is against the law to
feed them.
There are other precautionary
measures people should take to
reduce potential conflicts with alli-
gators, and they are available in the
"Living with Alligators" brochure at
MyFWC.com/gators.
The FWC annually receives
more than 18,000 alligator-related
complaints. The agency removes
more than 7,000 alligators each
year when the reptiles present dan-
ger to people or property.
If you encounter an alligator
that poses a threat tb you, your pets
or your property, and the alligator is
more than 4 feet long, call the
FWC's toll-free Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at 1-866-FWC-GATOR
(392-4286). The telephone number
is the primary contact for all alliga-
tor complaints and is available to
customers 24 hours a day.

than 4 feet in length are naturally
fearful of people and are not gen-
erally capable of eating anything
larger than a small turtle. They eat
small fish, frogs and other small
animals. They are too small to be
a threat to even small pets and
pose no threat to people. They are
typically not dangerous to people
unless someone attempts to han-
dle them. Also, they are common
in Florida and the mere presence
of a small alligator is not cause for
concern, even when they turn up
in. places whei~ people may not
expect to see them such as reten-
tion ponds and drainage ditches.
However, occasionally alligators
less than 4 feet in length are legiti-
mate problems and must be
addressed. If an alligator less than
4 feet in length approaches peo-
ple, does not retreat if approached
or is in a location that is not natu-
ral, call the Nuisance Alligator Hot-
line at 1-866-FWC-GATOR (1-866-
392-4286). The Statewide


Nuisance Alligator Program strives
to reduce the threat from alligators
to people and their property in
developed areas, while conserv-
ing alligators in areas where alliga-
tors naturally occur. If you have a
nuisance alligator call the Nui-
sance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-
FWC-GATOR (1-866-392-4286).
How many alligators
are there in Florida?
Counting animals in the wild
is without a doubt one of the
most formidable challenges to
wildlife scientists. There never is
an easy way to answer this ques-
tion, but here's what we know.
Based on known amounts of
suitable alligator habitat
statewide and estimates of alliga-
tor densities in those different
types of habitat, we believe there
are more than 1 million wild alli-
gators in Florida.
How fast can
an alligator run?
We know of no one who has
measured the ground speed of
alligators. Actually, there is little
reason, in regard to population
management and basic knowl-
edge of alligators, to research
this topic. Alligators are aquatic
animals; they hunt and capture
prey that is in or immediately
adjacent to water. Alligators and
other crocodilians will go on


land to feed on dead animal car-
casses, and they may attempt to
prey upon confined or tethered
animals. Although alligators are
capable of running, they use this
gait to flee threatening situa-
tions. There is no documented
evidence of alligators running
after human beings to prey upon
them. Also, there is no basis to
the myth that you should run in
zig-zag patterns to avoid a charg-
ing alligator. If you do find your-
self in the extremely unlikely
position of avoiding a lunging
alligator, you should run in a
straight line away from the alli-
gator and it's habitat, which is
where the alligator will most
likely retreat: Regardless of how
fast alligators can run, you
should never approach an alliga-
tor that is on land.
Is the American alligator
an endangered species?
Historically, alligators were
depleted from many parts of their
range as a result of market hunt-
ing, poaching, and loss of habitat.
In 1967, the alligator was listed as
an endangered species (under a
law that preceded the Endan-
gered Species Act of 1973), mean-
ing it was considered in danger of
extinction throughout all or a sig-
nificant portion of its range. The
Endangered Species Act prohibit-
ed alligator hunting, allowing the


species to rebound in numbers in
many areas where it had been
depleted. Alligators were down-
listed from endangered to threat-
ened in 1977, and, in 1987, the
American alligator was reclassi-
fied by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service as threatened due to simi-
larity of appearance. This designa-
tion does not imply that alligator
populations are threatened; it's
purpose is to afford protection to
endangered crocodilians, such as
the American crocodile and the
black caiman (which occurs in
South America), by regulating the
management of alligators and the
legal trade in alligator products.
Do other crocodilians
occur in Florida?
Florida is also home to the
American crocodile. The Ameri-
can crocodile lives in coastal
saltwater wetlands in extreme
southern Florida. This crocodile
is listed as an endangered
species and, as such, is protect-
ed by state, federal and interna-
tional laws and treaties.

Alligators are more active this time of year, and the low lake
levels have caused the gators to concentrate in larger num-
bers in the areas that still have water.

Use hard boiled eggs within one week


If your refrigerator is now well
stocked with colored, hard boiled
eggs, it's time to come up with
ways to use them. Hard boiled eggs
should be kept refrigerated.
According to the United States.
Department of Agriculture, hard
boiled eggs should be consumed
within week after cooking.
The shells of raw eggs have a
natural protection against bacteria.
However, boiling or steaming the
eggs causing this protection to be
lost. Hardboiled eggs have tiny
microscopic holes in the shells.
These holes are too small to see,
but large enough to allow in bacte-
ria. That's why it is important to
keep hard boiled eggs refrigerated,
and to discard them if they are
more than week old.
Hard boiled eggs can be an easi-
ly portable, nutritious snack. How-
ever, they do not travel well for
long. If a hard boiled egg is out of
the refrigerator for more than two
hours, it may not be safe to eat.
There are many ways to use
hard boiled eggs in recipes. The fol-
lowing recipes using hard boiled
eggs came from the Iowa Egg
Council.

What to do about the drought in our local yards


By Dan Culbert
UF/IFAS Extension
Horticulture Agent
This week we expect to hear
from the South Florida Water Man-
agement District that our area will
be placed under even more chal-
lenging water restrictions. Since
our office has already begun to
field questions on how to cope
with limited water supplies, it is
appropriate to offer some sugges-
tion on how to deal with drought
in local Florida Yards.
Some of the best ways to deal
with reduced landscape water sup-
plies involve preparing well before
the spigots are turned off. These
tips include choosing drought toler-
ant plants, conditioning your land-
scape to survive on less water and
making adjustments to irrigation
equipment to deliver water more
efficiently. Today's column will
focus on things that can be done
for the here and now.
Dangers of drought
How dry are we? A popular
measure of drought is the Keetch-


UNIVERSITY OF
FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
Byram Drought Index (KBDI).
This is the index that runs from 0
(flood stage) to 800 (desert condi-
tions). Last week (when this arti-
cle was written) the average KBDI
drought index for Okeechobee
was 674; unless a flood has hap-
pened since then, expect the
number to have increased.
Drought in the landscape means
plant stress from a lack of water.
The signs of turf grass turning from
gray green to brown are well
known to many people, but folding
leaves and drooping branches of
trees and shrubs will also be seen in
our Florida Yards. Those problem
areas in irrigation systems are now
quite evident, and it looks like we
are in the middle of summer. With
continued wilting, the ability of a
plant to fend off pests becomes
reduced, and our Florida Yards will
be in for some challenges.
Another serious issue with


drought is the danger of wildfire.
Our natural areas and landscapes
are suffering from this past winter's
frost damage, as well as a lack of
moisture needed for recovery and
normal seasonal growth. That's
why there is a burn ban in most of
South Florida, including our area.
The SFWMD is expected to
approve water use restrictions this
coming week, and our area will be
required to move to a 45 percent
reduction in their overall water
consumption. This is being done
to preserve our limited water sup-
plies needed for basic human
health and safety. And despite
what die-hard gardeners may
believe, landscape irrigation is not
considered to be necessary for
basic human health and safety.
Under the current Phase II
restrictions, landscape watering is
allowed twice a week. If Phase III
restrictions are imposed (as expect-
ed later this week), watering would
be allowed only once a week. It is
time to take inventory of landscape
watering practices, and adjust
them to meet our current drought
emergency.


Tips for drought
landscapes
Follow landscape watering
restrictions. You don't want a visit
from the "water-police". Watering
by sprinklers can only be done in
the early morning (4-8 a.m.) on
allowed day(s); hand watering by a
hose with a shut-off device can be
done on allowed days in the
evening (5-7 pm). Check with our
office or the District to find out your
day to water, http://www.sfwmd.gov
Choose your battles. Concen-
trate your watering efforts on parts
of the landscape that REALLY need
water. Certain plants will ultimately
recover from drought, (like Bahia
grass lawns). Other plants will not
survive without irrigation. Consider
giving up on those water-hog
plants or those that are not going to
make it anyway. These can be
replaced with drought tolerant
species. Recently planted orna-
mentals and fruit trees with young
developing fruit would be a bit
more important on the list of pants
that must have their drink of water.
And, if there are plants that have


sentimental value, keep them alive
by providing them with your valu-
able watering allotments.
Place your potted plants close
together in shady areas. Plants that
are close together will help keep an
envelope of moisture around their
neighboring plants, reducing the
need for irrigation.
Calibrate your sprinkler -
apply only enough water on your
designated watering day to fill a can
with one-half to three-quarters inch
of water. The amount of time to do
this will depend on how you water
your landscape. For hose watering,
use the same number of turns of
the water valve any time you water.
If you have a time clock, it should
be set for the time needed to deliver
this half of water.
Restrict the use of fertilizers.
Fertilizers encourage new succu-
lent growth that can not be sup-
ported unless extra water is avail-
able. Most fertilizers will need to be
watered into the root zone and if
insufficient water is used, root
damage can result.
Use pesticides carefully. While
some pest problems are reduced in


dry conditions (e.g. fungal rots and
aquatic weeds), others can
become multiplied by drought
(e.g. nematode damage and spider
mites). Check with our office to be
sure that any pesticides used will be
appropriate for dry conditions.
Delay planting new plants.
New plants will require additional
water to become properly estab-
lished in the landscape. Due to the
drought, one local church has cho-
sen to remove damaged shrubs
and mulch the bed for now; they
will replant once our summer rains
resume. Use the time to visit your
favorite nursery and order those
replacement plants for some time
in near future.
There are several sources of
additional information on keeping
up to date with the drought situa-
tion. Besides our office, drought
information is available from the
South Florida Water Management
District and the FDACS Division of
Forestry. Theses agencies are the
sources of our drought regulations,
and also offer advice on dealing
with drought. Many of these tips
are available on their websites.

Remembering life-changing moments and the moment: Easter


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Every week we celebrate Sun-
day as our day of worship. It is a
day that has turned out to be a
declared "day of rest" in our soci-
ety. It wasn't
always that
way, though. In
the earliest t
days, our ."
ancestors kept
their "Sab-
bath" on Satur-
day, beginning
Friday evening
and finishing SamuelS.
Saturday Thomas
evening. For
those who became Christians,
they continued on from Saturday
evening into Sunday morning; to
proclaim the message of a life-
changing event that had hap-


opened to them and what it meant
for all people. It was time to wor-
ship in a new way and to give
thanks for a new gift. Over time,
as the importance of this gift from
God was realized, Saturday wor-
ship fell away; the really special
day to worship was that weekly
commemoration of Easter and all
that it meant. We've carried on
that lesson and tradition ever
since; every Sunday is a celebra-
tion of Easter when the empty
tomb was found and the women
who visited there met the risen
Lord. From then on, things would
be different; that defining
moment would change every-
thing. One had been raised from
the dead and He promised that
we would be with Him for eterni-
ty; now anyone who believed
would see their life with a new
purpose and the reason for it all.
Each Sunday became an Easter;
each life became changed


because we shared its' promise. I
remember the first time I was
asked to preach. It was something
I was preparing to do at that time,
but then the moment actually
came and I was to stand before a
congregation and say something
about what they had heard in the
lessons for that day. I remember
afterwards they shook my hand,
thank me and then went on their
way, but I was seen in a new way.
It was the first of many days that
would follow, suddenly I was rec-
ognized as "the preacher" and it
would continue. It would culmi-
nate in ordination and being rec-
ognized as different than before.
From that moment, I would be
called to serve by those who rec-
ognized me as minister; there
would be another quality with a
special trust and special obliga-
tions, special joys and challenges.
It !would be different than before.
I remember other life-changing


moments too. There was a year
when I spent every night and
most of the days writing a disser-
tation at a University Library,
preparing a dissertation that was
to be "an original contribution to
knowledge." The day came when
I was to defend my work before a
faculty committee and when it
would be accepted-or not accept-
ed-and I would graduate-or not. I
remember sitting at the end of a
long table and all of the profes-
sors voting to accept it, then con-
gratulating me. When I left the
room, students outside asked me
"How'd you do?" and I told them
"I passed!" They said "Congratu-
lations, doctor!" and life would be
different afterwards. New doors
would open; new opportunities
would present themselves, new
insights and new possibilities
opened up from that moment
onward. Easter is that moment for
us all. It is life-changing and opens


Defining prayer: similar, but not alike


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
If we were all asked what
prayer means to us, the answers
would probably be similar but not
exactly alike. Let me give you my
answer.
1: An acknowledgement of
God. We are told, "Irr all thy ways
acknowledge Him, and He shall
direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:6).
Prayer is one way to acknowledge
God (that He exists, that He is our
Father; that He is great, that He is
over us, that He hears and
answers our prayers, etc.). To me
this is so important!
2: Prayer is spending time with
God. In prayer He is our Father,


enjoy spending time with those
we love. We visit, go places
together, do things with each
other, and live with and for each
other. In prayer we are spending
personal time with our heavenly
Father, doing what the song says,
"Take time to be holy speak oft
with thy Lord."
3: It is praise and thanksgiving
to Him for His continued good-
ness and blessings. He "daily
loadeth us with benefits" (Psalm
69:19). "His compassion fail not.
They are new every morning"
(Lam. 3:22-23). He opens the
windows of heaven and pours out
more blessings than we can
receive (Mal. 3:10). We are cor-


the sparrow and I know He
watches me" (Matt. 10:29, 31).
4: Accepting God's invitation to
ask things for myself. His door is
ever open for all of us Christians to
tell Him what we need and want.
Isn't it wonderful that there is a
place where we can meet the One
who is both willing and able to
give us what we need? That place
is prayer and that person is God!
5: An opportunity to ask in
behalf of other people and King-
dom projects. This is where we
can spend much time with God. It
is connected with our love for oth-
ers and our interest in God's King-
dom, the Church.
May one or more of these per-


you in your prayer life.
In closing, let me share some
thoughts from songs that mean
much to me: "Oh, what peach we
often forfeit; Oh, what needless
pain we bear. All because we do
not carry everything to God in
prayer." "Sweet Hour of Prayer"
reminds us of what a privilege
prayer is as long as we inhabit
these mortal bodies, but when at
last from Mt. Pisgah's lofty height
we view our heavenly home and
take our flight and shout while
passing through the air, "Farewell,
farewell, sweet hour of prayer," for
there we will have no unfulfilled
need! My favorite verse regarding
prayer is Ephesians 3:20. Read it,


the door to life for us all. It has
been the realization for me that
this life goes on, and that it is dif-
ferent than before; and that it
brings special gifts and opportuni-
ties to us all. The One who has
come, has opened the door to us;
we are not the same as before.
Now there is hope of a newer life
and a better life to come, and that
somehow God is always there to
help when things are down, or to


share in joy, or bless an accom-
plishment or heal when sick, and
that nothing shall separate us
from Him and His love (read
Romans 8!); that we are "more
than conquerors through Him
who loved us (Romans 8:37)."
Each week when I stop to wor-
ship the Lord, there is that life-
changing Easter with us again -
and thanks be to God for it with all
of the life changes it brings.

Be generous: The Lord needs your donkey theBli


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Once again Easter season has
hardly finished before I have to
start thinking of tax season.
Once again I find myself thinking
about our Easter services, our
annual butterfly release follow-
ing those services and all of the
other special Holy Week activi-
ties x0hiie dealii., with the nag-
ging weight that taxes are soon
due. Once again, I find it ironic
that as I sit at my computer
thinking about my Easter offer-
ing my thoughts are invaded by
the worry of what offering I will
need to make to the government
by the middle of this month.
With apologies to the IRS,
one seems very heavenly and the
other very earthly. One minute
I'm at Calvary, the next I'm at my
checkbook. One reminds how
God paid it all and the other


reminds that I have a lot to pay.
In all of this, I try to keep in mind
the words of Christ to render to
Caesar the things that are Cae-
sar's and to God the things that
are God's.
As I think
about what's
ahead of me, I
find my
thoughts drift-
ing back to the
guy who gave
the donkey for
Jesus to ride
into Jerusalem John
on that first Hicks
Palm Sunday.
Who was this guy? He's not
named. The only thing we know
is that Jesus told His disciples, "If
anyone asks you why you are
taking the donkeys, say that the
Master has need of them and he
will send them at once."
(Matthew 21:3)
Did this guy just give his ani-


mals to someone in need or did
he know it was Jesus who need-
ed the donkey? Did the man
worry about getting the donkey
back? When I put myself in his
place I wonder how freely I
might have given my donkey. I
sometimes wonder about how
freely I might or might not give
today. I wonder about these
things because there are times I
like to keep my animals to
myself fdr my own use.
Sometimes I get the impres-
sion that God wants me to give
Him something or do something
in His name and sometimes I
don't give it or do it because it's
not convenient or I'm really busy
at the moment or I'm worried
about getting back what I am
giving out. Sometimes I wonder
if my time and giving today will
really make a difference in the
long run. Sometimes, in retro-
spect, I feel like I have missed
opportunities.


And then there are those
times when I get the impression
that God wants me to give Him
something and I respond and
feel honored that a gift of mine
would be used to carry Jesus
into another place.
The reality is that all of us
have a donkey. You and I each
have something in our lives
which, if given back to God,
could, like the donkey, move
Jesus and His story further down
the road. Maybe you can bake or
clean or perhaps teach a class,
speak a foreign language or
drive a car. Maybe you can sing
or read or give a hug. Maybe you
can program a computer, sell
real estate or even write a check.
Whichever, that's your donkey.
Whichever, it could be that God
wants to mount your donkey
and enter into another place,
another situation, another heart,
another life. Do you let Him? Or
do you hold tight to the reins?
