Womack faces fraud charges


Had applied for job
as BG city manager

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Former
EDGE Center Director and candi-
date for the Belle Glade City Man-
ager Crystal Womack was arrest-
ed on Thursday, April 26 after a
lengthy investigation by the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO).


She was
released from
jail on her own
recognizance
the next day,
the according
to PBSCO
records. ",
According
to a probable I
cause state- Crystal
ment by the Womack
PBSO, the
charges she faces include grand
theft, making false statements to


obtain property or credit, burgla-
ry of a structure and a scheme to
defraud (under the Florida Com-
munications Fraud Act).
Womack, who recently was
one of 12 applicants for the Belle
Glade interim city manager posi-
tion, was reportedly terminated
from the EDGE Center on Aug. 10
by the Board of Directors.
She has been accused of
requesting a financial service
representative from Fidelity Fed-
eral Bank to remove a board
director's name from the signa-


ture card for the EDGE Center.
Womack also allegedly
requested the representative to
issue new checks, the affidavit
said.
The affidavit said the repre-
sentative denied the request
because Womack didn't have a
corporate resolution which stat-
ed she was a signer on the EDGE
Center account.
On the day Womack's
employment was terminated, the
board members collected the
office keys from her. On Aug. 11,


the board of directors allegedly
changed the locks, according to
the affidavit.
In a bizarre twist, the locks
were changed again the next day
after Womack reportedly con-
tacted a locksmith to do so. She
allegedly regained entry into the
EDGE Center, the affidavit said.
With a letter dated Aug. 10,
2006, Womack allegedly
announced she was the execu-
tive director and board director

Dike workshop



well attended


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
LAKE OKEECHOBEE A
business opportunities work-
shop with the Army Corps of
Engineers (COE) for the Herbert
Hoover Dike rehabilitation proj-
ect was held April 26 at the Uni-
versity of Florida Everglades
Research and Education Center
in Belle Glade.
At the workshop, the COE
announced its goals and
timetable for the revised Herbert
Hoover Dike (HHD) project.
The project is slated to begin
construction in June, again at
Reach 1, the area from Port May-
aca to Belle Glade.
The redesign involves the
rehabilitation of the seepage
berm. Then in July, the cut-off
wall built to prevent water
from seeping through the dike
and send it deeper where the
dike is thicker will undergo


reconstruction.
Work is currently under way
on the toe ditch fill rehabilitation.
A drainage swale will be added.
According to COE officials,
the main priority of the dike
repair is public safety. Officials
said they are also committed to
minimizing the impacts of ongo-
ing construction on local
landowners and communities.
The project should be com-
pleted by October 2013, said
COE officials. With that in
place, the COE is seeking a con-
tractor which could contribute
to providing the organization of
their priorities.
Carlos D. Clarke, the chief of
the contracting division, said that
within a year, up to three con-
tractors could be selected to con-
struct the seepage berm, the cut-
off wall and their structures. He

Famous attorney
motivates success

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On Mon-
day, about five months after
winning the Class 3A state
championship, the Glades Cen-
tral Raiders football team
received their rings in a day the
students and faculty won't soon
forget.
Attorney and cable television
executive Willie E. Gary paid the
school a visit and gave a motiva-
tional speech. Former Major
League Baseball player Cecil
Fielder also was in attendance.
Inside the gymnasium, the
Glades Central Marching Band
began with a rendition of
ESPN's Sportscenter theme. The
students, in unison, cheered


loudly for their team as the indi-
vidual members filed into the
gym.
Deonte Thompson, one of
the Raiders, gave the podium to
Mr. Gary and a loud student
body welcomed the .famous
attorney.
Mr. Gary began by asking the
crowd, "Is this a great country
or not?" The audience erupted
with a resounding yes.
The lawyer offered encour-
aging words to the students.
"I praise you because of the
fact you are here is saying you
care about getting an educa-
tion," said Mr. Gary. "It is one of
the most important things you
will get in your life."
Mr. Gary encouraged the
football players to not only be
the best football players they
can be, but also the best person.

the top five in the number of teen
pregnancies for at least the last
seven years; not to mention that
Palm Beach County and particu-
larly areas in the Western County
area have ranked amongst the
nation's highest in number of
teen pregnancies.
First Care Family Resources in
partnership with Destiny By
Choice, Inc. are calling all organi-
zations, agencies (including but

counselors, doctors, youth work-


ers and Faith leaders), that deal

County Sheriff warns about drug operations clean up


City and county
agencies work
together

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office continues
working to clear the streets of
illegal drugs, or at least put a size-
able dent in drug trafficking and
drug sales within the county.
Recently, the efforts of the
sheriff's office led to the arrest of
a Montura man, Juan Antonio
Sanchez, 33. Sanchez was
charged with operating a drug.
house, possession of marijuana
with intent to sell and other


drug-related charges after inves-
tigators obtained a search war-
rant and conducted a search at
his home.
Deputies found 8.5 pounds of
suspected marijuana at the
North Trebel Street home,
according to the sheriff's office.
The amount totaled a street
value of approximately $16,000.
Investigators also found
packing materials and other
drug paraphernalia inside the
residence.
Sanchez was taken to the
Hendry County Jail on April 18,
where last week he was await-
ing trial with a $51,000 bond.
It is the latest drug-related
arrest to occur within the coun-
ty, in an ongoing operation to


clear the streets of as much ille-
gal drug activity as possible.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said his
officers "are working tirelessly,"
to follow all leads that come in.
"We will continue working
towards keeping our community
drug free," the sheriff said. "We
will continue doing so as long as
it takes."
In another operation, the
sheriff's office partnered with
the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment to execute another war-
rant.
The two agencies conducted
the operation on April 20.
Nathaniel Thomas, 35, of
Clewiston, was arrested, facing
the charge of possession of
cocaine with intent to sell.


Similar to the Montura
seizure, officers found Thomas
in a residence on West Paso
Avenue in Clewiston.
Officers found an unidenti-
fied amount of suspected crack
cocaine and a loaded 9 millime-
ter handgun in the property.
The county and city law
enforcement agencies say they
work together from time to time
to ensure a more successful
operation.
"Our guys work great togeth-
er, said Clewiston Assistant Chief
Kristine Petersen and am very
glad we had this opportunity to
show how well they can do" she
added.

Mrs. Mary Belle Wilson, Worthy Matron, Mr. Guy D. Wilson, Worthy Patron, and Mrs. Doris
Benoit of the Moore Haven Chapter recently presented gallons of aluminum tabs to Shriner
William A. Nordstrom.


Eastern Star Chapter supports


aluminum tabs fundraiser effort


An aluminum tab donation
drive was recently sponsored by
Moore Haven Chapter 116,
Order of the Eastern Star.
Many containers of tabs, esti-
mated to be 15 gallons of alu-
minum tabs, were donated by
members of Moore Haven Chap-
ter 116, along with many more
people, some in about seven


states. This donation drive was
coordinated by Mrs. Doris Benoit,
Past Matron of Moore Haven.
Mrs. Benoit presented the
tabs to Shriner Williams A.
Nordstrom, personal aide to the
Potentate, Illustrious Sir Graham
A. Stein of the Araba Shriners of
Ft. Myers.
These tabs are sold by weight.


The money will go to the trans-
portation fund. Money from this
fund helps provide transporta-
tion for children and their par-
ents to the Shriners' Burn Center
in Texas. The Burn Center is a
free service to burned children.
The transportation fund also
helps provide maintenance to
the vans they use.

Hendry and Glades leaders discuss common concerns


By.Patty Brant
INI FLORIDA
LABELLE With develop-
ment and its side effects looming
all across Hendry and Glades
counties, commissioners from
both counties met in a joint
workshop session for the second
time Monday evening. Hendry
County Commission Chairman
Kevin McCarthy called the meet-
ing to order and nine of the ten
total commissioners with a num-
ber of their staff met to share
their planning status and ideas.


Commissioner Janet Taylor from
Clewiston was not present.
Hendry County Planner Vince
Cautero was up first, detailing
the West LaBelle Area plan as it
stands today. He told the group
that the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs rejected the original
plan for the area north and west
of LaBelle in 2005 with three
major concerns: transportation,
water and sewer service and an
appropriate mix of land uses. In
fact, he said, DCA was con-
cerned that the proposed density
was too low. The county is com-


mitted to keeping density low
along the river. DCA wants to
prevent sprawl using techniques
like trading densities, as is done
in Collier County, clustering and
building in compact "rural vil-
lage" style.
Hendry County has been
working with the City of LaBelle
to work out water and sewer
service for the area. Developers
may be allowed to supply those
services there temporarily, until
government is able to. He prom-
ised a revised plan this week.
The Four Corners area, where
Hendry, Glades, Lee and Char-
lotte counties meet, is expected
to become a population center,
with developments in the West
LaBelle area, Muse, eastern Lee
County and Babcock Ranch.
Glades County's Larry Hilton
talked about the proposed Muse
Village. The comprehensive plan


was approved for it last year. Just
a short distance north of the
Hendry County line, transporta-
tion issues will come into play
for both counties. In particular,
the less-than-adequate LaBelle
Bridge will be a sticking point. At
build out, Muse Village could
have as many as 3,500 dwellings.
At present 350 dwellings could
go in. The project encompasses
some 800 acres around the West
Glades Elementary School. Mr.
Hilton said the village will be
"self sustaining," with commer-
cial properties that would pro-
vide residents with daily necessi-
ties, limiting their need to drive
elsewhere, straining local roads.
He said Glades County will prob-
ably encourage commercial
zoning first, but understood that
the balance will be tricky.

Mary and Robert Pew Founda-

Glade View Elementary School
would like to thank the Mary and
Robert Pew Foundation for award-
ing us the Field Trip Grant for the
2006-2007 school year.
This grant gives our students the
opportunity to experience a variety
of cultural differences, places and
extended hands on learning oppor-
tunities. These funds were used to
fund trips to the Science Museum,
Wannado City, Metro Zoo, Univer-
sal Studios, Miami Seaquarium,
MOSI Science Exhibit, Sea World
and Kravis on the Road. It gives
teachers an opportunity to extend
academic learning beyond the
walls of the classroom and stu-
dents the opportunity to have a
well-rounded understanding of the
curriculum being taught by their
teachers. The field trips also provid-
ed students with an understanding
of new and unfamiliar concepts
and cultural experiences.
Brother's and Sister's Keeper
Scholarship
Glade View Elementary School


recommended Oreauna Vickers
for the Brother's & Sister's Keeper
Scholarship. This scholarship is for
young people to affirm that we do

make a difference in the lives of
others. Not only must our young
people be taught the rudiments of
the core courses, but they must
also have the desire to give of them-
selves for the betterment of their
environment. Oreauna is a fourth
grade student in Mrs. Betty Page's
class. She is an outstanding student
that makes a difference in the lives
of others and deserves this honor.
She has high academic standards
and we believe with her drive and
determination she will achieve her
goals in the future.

common goals, since it offers "real
world" applications to school stud-
ies, furthers partnerships between
schools and the business commu-
nity, encourages gender equity and
enhances mentoring programs.
The event encourages young peo-
ple to stay in school, seek postsec-

greater variety of careers. All stu-
dents who attended school that day
with their parents received an
excused absence from their home
school.

Officials at Fidelity Federal
Bank were notified of Womack's
alleged takeover by the Board of
Directors, according to the report.
Aqording to the affidavit,
Wjihack returned to Fidelity Fed-
eraTBank on Aug. 16 with a copy
of the notice she prepared and

bers.
The request was denied by a
representative from the bank, the

ducted an investigation of the
matter, when Womack said she
was never on probation at the
EDGE Center, according to the
report.

an interview by investigators,
Womack said she was never noti-
fied of her termination by the
EDGE Board of Directors.

allow her entry into the office, the
report said.
According to the report Wom-
ack also confirmed she received
the $9,025.65 check on Aug. 16,
which was deposited the next
day, according to the affidavit.
The report said Womack con-
firmed she wrote multiple checks,
which were all signed by her dur-
ing the period she claimed she
was the chairman of the Board of
Directors.
Womack added she was
escorted out by deputies after try-
ing to organize her new Board of
Directors, the report said.
The report revealed all those
contacted by the suspect to be on
her new Board of Directors -
Michelle Pittman, Geraldine Shel-
ton, Pernell Miller, Melton Critten-
den and Freddie Garrett either
failed to show up at the office for
any meetings, never knew they
were on the board or resigned
after the first meeting.
Investigators discovered, in the
presence of original board mem-
bers Douglas Green and Reggie
O'Conner, that Mr. Miller con-
firmed he assisted Womack in
removing her belongings from
the EDGE center, the affidavit said.
In a subpoena to Wachovia
Bank for records concerning the
EDGE center account, the report
said that the following checks
were written and dated by the
suspect on Aug. 18:
One check payable to Lavari-
an Simmons for $400;
Two separate checks made
payable to Crystal Womack for
$1,303.77 each; and,
One check made payable to
Caterna Jones for $100.
On Sep. 14, the bank closed
the account after discovering it
had accrued a loss of $3,235.54.
This was indicated by a loss man-
agement officer from Wachovia
Bank, according to the report.
When asked for a second
interview by detectives on Nov.
27, the report said Womack
declined the meeting.
No court date has been set,
according to the state attorney's
office.

On Monday, April 30 at the Pahokee Middle-Senior High School practice field, the newly
formed soccer program, which is part of Pahokee's STRAPPED program, received their soc-
cer uniforms for their inaugural intramural mini-league. The after school program received
the uniforms from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with sponsors such
as Wal-Mart, the Pahokee Housing Authority, Cus We Care, Charities for Children and Club
TKO. The PBSO Community Policing Unit performed the presentation for the program.


Soccer

Continued From Page 1
According to a release provid-
ed by the PBSO, the program,
which is based on students taking
a responsible approach to per-
sonal progress and educational
development (STRAPPED), pro-
motes social skills and positive
learning..
The STRAPPED program, in its
18th year at the middle-senior
high school, is based on teaching
the youth skills concerning lead-
ership and discipline, according
to Oscar Villanueva, the assistant
principal and soccer
sponsor/teacher for the program.
The release said the two com-
ponents of the program are aca-
demic tutoring and recreational
enhancement activities.
The students are involved in
sports and should their grades
drop to a 'C' or below, they would
be placed in academic tutoring
until their grades improve.
Veronica Shaw, the after-
school program director, said that
this is the first time it is trying to


incorporate soccer into the
STRAPPED program.
"I'm happy that the soccer pro-
gram has started," said Ms. Shaw.
"The kids deserve to have an
opportunity to develop their
social skills."
Other enrichment activities the
program offers are weightlifting,
football and basketball, among
others.
Ms. Shaw said the program is
meant to pull the youth from neg-
ativity.
"We work to keep the kids off
the street and have them partici-
pate in positive activities that have
a supervised setting," said Ms.
Shaw.
Mr. Villanueva said soccer will
also provide for the youth such
components as enhancing social
behavior, asserting self-control
and raising self-esteem. The soc-
cer coach added that he appreci-
ates the community's support.
"The community has been
very supportive by giving a help-
ing hand in our kids' develop-
ment," said Mr. Villanueva. "It's a
community effort."
There are four teams playing in
the intramural league.


The Red team is called Team
Chivas, while the Yellow team is
called Team America. The Blue
team is called Team Cruz Azul,
with the Green team being called
Team Santos.
Practices are Tuesday through
Friday at 4 p.m. on Lair Field. The
games are on Fridays from 4-6
p.m. at the same location, with
the first season ending on May 25.
Sergeant Linda Hamilton of
the District 5 Community Policing
Unit said the PBSO conducts
these presentations often for
community policing and to help
the youth who are considered at-
risk in the county.
She added the PBSO is a lead
organization in assisting children
from the Glades area.
"I just want to say on behalf of
the PBSO, we partner with agen-
cies in order to improve the quali-
ty of life with the community,"
said Sgt. Hamilton. "We could not
have made these uniforms for the
children in the after-school soccer
program without the collabora-
tion with our sponsors and their
support."

Don't let life's aggravations 'spoil' your positive attitude


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I enjoy cold iced tea and Diet
Mountain Dew. Orange juice is one
of my all time favorites. But every
now and then there is nothing that
beats the juice of the cow. There is
nothing much better than having a
nice ice cold glass of milk with a
warm chocolate chip cookie or a
rich gooey brownie.
Some years ago, I readied
myself for the cow juice blessing. I
had just taken a batch of cookies
out of the oven and popped one in
my mouth. I reached in the refriger-
ator and took out the jug of milk
and took a couple of gulps to help
wash it down. (You can do that
when you aren't married!)
What happened next, however,
was not the joy that I had envi-


sioned. The cookie experience and
all the good that went along with it
was ruined as I spewed out what I
had just taken in. The milk was
sour. I learned
that day that
there is a price
to be paid for
leaving milk out
too long. Bad
milk can ruin a
good thing.
Good milk
turns bad when
it's not kept John
cool enough. Hicks
Good dispo-
sitions can turn bad for the same
reason. If we let aggravations or irri-
tations simmer too long without
giving them a period of time for
cooling off, we can stew ourselves
into a bad attitude. Just like bad
milk, a bad attitude can ruin a good


thing. As one of my friends shared,
"Bad attitudes are the darkrooms
where "negatives" are developed."
In the tenth chapter of the
Gospel of Luke we find a classic
example of the sweet becoming
sour, of good becoming bad, of
positive becoming negative.
Martha invited Jesus and the disci-
ples to dinner. While Martha was
busy doing all of the things that
needed to be done, her sister was
sitting down listening to Jesus
teach. This annoyed Martha to no
end. What had started out to be an
attitude of joy and service for
someone special quickly cur-
dled. Martha lost perspective and
her focus turned more towards
herself and her situation. With
time, she developed an attitude
and her attitude spoiled the gift
she was offering.
A bad attitude can ruin a good


thing. Satan knows that. Satan
uses that. Notice that he didn't
take Martha out of the kitchen; he
took away her purpose in the
kitchen. The adversary won't turn
you against the church; he will
turn you toward yourself in the
church. He won't take you away
from your work; he'll take away
your joy in your work.
There is a life-lesson here for us.
We have a choice everyday regard-
ing the attitude we will embrace for
that day. We cannot change our
past. We cannot change the fact
that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
We can however, change how we
react to it.
We are in charge of our atti-
tudes. To keep an attitude from
souring, treat it like you would a jug
of milk: Keep it cool and check it
regularly to make sure it's good.


At what cost has God been taken out of schools?


By Jackie Miller
Minister First
Christian Church, Clewiston

ginia Tech," I received the following
E-mail.

ginia Tech, Blacksburg, Va. 4-16-07?
Sincerely, A Concerned Student.
Reply: Dear Concerned Student;
Sorry, I am not allowed in schools!


Sincerely, GOD.
How did this get started? Let's
see, I think it started when Madeline
Murray O'Hare complained she did-
n't want any prayer in our schools.
And we said, Okay. Then, someone
said you better not read the Bible in
school, the Bible that says, "Thou
shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal
and love your neighbor as yourself."
Andwe said, Okay.
Dr. Benjamin Spock said we
shouldn't spank our children when
they misbehave because their little
personalities would be warped and
we might damage their self-
esteem. And we said, "An expert
should know what he's talking
about." So we won't spank them
anymore.
Then someone said, "Teachers
and principals better not discipline
our children when they misbe-
have." And the school administra-
tors said, "No faculty member in
this school better touch a student


when they misbehave because we
don't want any bad publicity. And
we surely don't want to be sued."
And we accepted their reasoning.
Then someone said, "Let's let
our daughters have abortions if
they want, and they won't even
have to tell their parents." And we
said, "That's a grand idea!" Then
some wise school board member
said, "Since boys will be boys and
they're going to do it anyway, let's
give our sons all the condoms they
want, so they can have all the fun
they desire and we won't have to
tell their parents they got them at
school." And we said, "That's
another great idea!"
Then,, some of our top elected
officials said, "It doesn't matter what
we do in private as long as we do
our jobs." And we said, "It doesn't
matter what anybody, including the
President, does in private as long as
we have jobs and the economy is
good." Someone else took that


appreciation a step further publish-
ing pictures of nude children. Then,
stepping further still, made them
available on the Internet.
We said, "Everyone's entitled to
free speech!" And the entertain-
ment industry said, "Let's make TV
shows and movies that promote
profanity, violence and illicit sex.
Let's record music that encourages
rape, drugs, murder-suicide, and
satanic themes." And we said, "It's
just entertainment and has no
adverse effect and nobody takes it
seriously anyway, so go right
ahead!" Now we're asking our-
selves why our children have no
conscience, why they don't know
right from wrong, and why it does-
n't bother them to kill strangers,
classmates or even themselves.
Undoubtedly, if we thought
about it long and hard enough, we
could figure it out. I'm sure it has a
great deal to do with, "We reap
what we sow!"


"Pleasant words (and atti-
tudes) are a honeycomb, sweet
to the soul and healing to the
bones." (Proverbs 16:24)

What you don't say is as important as what you say
tell God wh At od n ntt ..


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
One of my friends who minis-
ters at a large, inner-city church
has a sign as you enter his office
complex that
reads "Don't
speak unless
you can ..
improve on the
silence!" That
certainly got
my attention
the first time I
read it; and
gave me pause Samuel S.
for thought. Thomas
Some other
person changed another well-
known saying "When all is said
and done..." by concluding it
with"....there's a lot more said
than done." Many times, I've
watched two persons on televi-
sion who have opposing views
trying to talk. Before one is fin-
ished, the other will chime in to


interrupt. Usually, the first speaker
keeps on talking; both talking at
the same time and neither one lis-
tening to the other. It is as if the
one who can shout the loudest
and longest will have people sup-
porting him.
The writer of Ecclesiastes tells
us "there is a time to be silent and a
time to speak" (Chapter 3, Verse 7).
We don't get many clues from him
about just when it is best to speak
or best to keep silent; but I have
often observed that I can "say"
something by my silence. Some-
times "out of the blue" someone
will come with a question that
sounds like they have already
decided what the answer is sup-
posed to be. I get the direction they
wish to go by the nature of the
question ("You don't really believe
that..., do you?" types of questions)
and find the person really doesn't
want an answer but an affirmation
that we are like-minded and he is
-right! I usually try to be polite but
do not answer; an answer will do
no good when there is no question


being asked.
Isaiah's summary about the
death of Jesus tells us "He was
oppressed and afflicted, yet He did
not open His mouth; he was led
like a lamb to the slaughter and as a
sheep before her shearers is silent,
He opened not His mouth" (Chap-
ter 53:7). He reflects that there was
a time to be silent! Why would
have Jesus been silent?
I believe because He knew how
things were going to turn out, He
knew of the futility of speaking, of
entering into a "shouting match"
with people who already had their
minds made up by selfishness, jeal-
ousy, their own interests, sin. There
would be another time to speak.
It would come a few days later
when He met His companions on
the beach and asked them if they
had any fish. It would come in the
upper room when Jesus would
simply say to Thomas "Here, put
your fingers in the nail prints..." and
the words would be few, hardly
breaking the silence, but they
would speak volumes.


My guide has been to watch, to
share an opinion when I think the
questions are asked in sincerity, to
say why I feel as I do if asked, to lis-
ten as best I can to those who are
sincerely questioning (versus those
who feel their job is to convert) and
to be ready to remain silent.
A former Air Force Colonel who
went into the ministry later in life
used to say "A man convinced
against his will is of the same opin-
ion still." He had a point. I am will-
ing to wait to speak if I think it will
mean that I might really be heard.
The Lord didn't need to speak
much at the end of His earthly life;
He knew how things were going to
turn out. That has been a helpful
example to me when I think I
know how things are going to turn
out, too.
Recently, among those who
asked for our prayers was a person
who asked for healing without
surgery. The nature of his problem
was such that in the majority of
cases, surgery is required. I under-
stood his apprehension; under-


stood that it wasn't our place to tell
God what means to use to answer
and I also understood the place for
silence in our contacts. Finally, he
told me that surgery was necessary
and I responded "You'll do great!"
and reminded him of what has
happened in my life when I try to


tell God what to do and not to lis-
ten. It applies to others and to me
as well silence can speak vol-
umes; persuasion comes in honest
sharing; avoid useless shouting
matches. We can all learn to listen
and let God's will speak to us. Bet-
ter for the blood pressure, too!

Edison Community College prepares for future expansion


By Kristin Hunter
INI Florida
LABELLE The Edison Col-
lege board held its monthly meet-
ing at the LaBelle High School
auditorium for the very first time
on Tuesday, April 17. The focus of
the meeting was what has been
learned from the Virginia Tech
incident along with the growth of
the Hendry-Glades campus.
Hendry-Glades campus Dean
Lucinda Kelley gave a presenta-
tion on the growth of the LaBelle
campus. She began her presenta-
tion saying what a great staff she
has including: Administrative Spe-
cialist Cindy Simmons, Adminis-
trative Specialist Heath Daniels,
Learning Assistance Lab Parapro-
fessional Marie Sprouse and Test
Proctor Crystal Saldana. She went
on to mention some of the cam-
pus' statistics. There are currently
43 percent full time enrolled stu-
dents, with 57 percent of the stu-
dent body enrolled part time with
less than 12 credit hours; 16 per-
cent of those students are dual
enrolled, meaning they are still
currently enrolled in high school
I


as well. The vast majority of the
student body, 71 percent, is
female; 49 percent have a GPA of
3.0 or above. Forty-six percent of
the student body is of minority
background, 37-38 percent are
Hispanic. Sixty-nine percent of the
students are between the ages of
15-24 and 60 percent are 21 years
old and under.
This year, three students Brian-
na Gutierrez, Carhen Torrealba
and Angela Hester, will receive
both their AA and high school
diploma.
Enrollment continues to climb.
Currently the full time equivalency
(FTE) count is 249 and the head
count is 584. Mrs. Kelley pointed
out that Edison is a tangible, prac-
tical and affordable college. The
LaBelle location offers complete
degree offerings in both AA and
AS degrees. The college is trying
to reestablish the EMS program
and has started English for Acade-
mic Purpose, or EAP class specifi-
cally designed for students who
need English for their studies. The
campus is also offering the CLEP, a
College Level Exam Placement
Test. This test is a subject area test.


If a student passes the test, college
credit will be earned for that sub-
ject. It is a nationally administered
test and for many students, a great
opportunity. The LaBelle office is
in the process of hiring a full time
Advisor/Financial Aid Officer to
help students with all their finan-
cial/academic needs and will soon
also be hiring a Student Service
Specialist as well. They have
recently hired a part-time IT (Infor-
mation Technology) support per-
son who has been well used
already. There is now an on site
security officer who works during
school hours.
The College Placement Test is
being offered at local high schools
each semester for students who
didn't take the SAT or ACT. The
LaBelle office has recently taken
approximately 70 students from
LaBelle High School to visit the
main Edison campus located in
Lee County.
Mrs. Kelley has been doing
classroom presentations at high
schools, recruiting students to join
Edison as well as going to senior
events, awards and assemblies.
Edison has currently been


involved in Leadership and
Hendry-Glades Education Day, a
Job and Career Expo, the Work-
force Council of SWFL and had
booths at both the Swamp Cab-
bage and Sugar Festival. Recently
the Richard H. Rush library in Lee
County donated some much
needed furniture to the LaBelle
Edison office.
The Hendry-Glades campus
will be awarding 12 HOPE schol-
arships this year. HOPE stands for
Helping One Person Excel. This
year's Thanksgiving Food Drive
raised over $2,000. The Hendry-
Glades campus has had two finan-
cial aid weekend workshops so
far and will have another one on
May 5. The Hendry-Glades cam-
pus has received two new build-
ings- a DLA or Developmental
Learning Lab and a classroom full
of computers.

Child abuse education brings


about 'Winds of Change'


HENDRY COUNTY The
Winds of Change highlights how
parenting has changed over the
years as a result of changes in
social, cultural and demograph-
ic trends in families. The pin-
wheel represents this change
and the message of April, Child
Abuse Prevention Month. This
year 834 pinwheels were given
out in local communities. Each
pinwheel represents a new birth
in our community and an oppor-
tunity to support a new family
from the very beginning.
In Hendry County there were
757 births in 2005 and in Glades
County there were 77.
"Parenting is not an easy job,
young parents need our sup-
port," says Judy Paskvan, Pro-
gram Manager for Healthy Fami-
lies. "Babies do not come with
instructions and young parents
need to understand how their
baby develops and grows, as
well as, how important they are
in the lives of their children."
The Healthy Families Pro-
gram is focused on the preven-
tion of child abuse and neglect
and helps families from the very
beginning with a positive parent-
ing approach. Family Support
Workers support parents in
being the best parents they can
be by learning about their child's
development, the importance of
preventive health and creating a
safe home environment for the

CREW gala fundraiser tells of success

HRMC to celebrate National Nurses Week


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
National Nurses Week is cele-
brated annually from May 6, (also
known as National Nurses Day)
through May 12, (the birthday of
Florence Nightingale, the founder
of modern nursing). During this
week long event, nurses are rec-
ognized from coast to coast for
the work they perform and the
role they play in the delivery of
healthcare.
According to projections from
the Bureau of Labor Statistics
(BLS), RNs top the list of the 10
occupations with the largest pro-
jected job growth in the next five
years. Although RNs have listed
among the top ten growth occupa-
tions in the past, this is the first time
in recent history that RNs have
ranked first. These projections are
widely used in career guidance, in


planning education and training
programs and in studying long-
range employment trends. Accord-
ing to the BLS report, more than 2.9
million RNs will be employed in the
year 2012, up 623,000 from the
nearly 2.3 million RNs employed in
2002. However, the total job open-
ings, which include both job
growth and the net replacement of
nurses, will be more than 1.1 mil-
lion. This growth, coupled with
current trends of nurses retiring or
leaving the profession and fewer
new nurses, could lead to a short-
age of more than one million nurs-
es by the end of this decade. (Dur-
ing Career Day at Clewiston High
School, David McClusky, from
Hendry Regional Medical Center,
encouraged students to seek
careers in healthcare related fields.)
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter and its associated clinics staff a
total of 64 nursing related person-


nel, which consist of Advanced
Registered Nurse Practitioners, Cer-
tified Registered Nurse Anes-
thetists, Registered Nurses,
Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified
Medical Assistants, and Certified
Nursing Assistants. HRMC will host
a reception in honor of its nursing
staff on Wednesday, May 9, from 5
p.m. to 7 p.m. in the hospital con-
ference room.
National Nurses Week is a great
time for the for people in the com-
munity to celebrate the spirit of
nursing and other health profes-
sionals Join Hendry Regional
Medical Center in thanking those
individuals who work very hard to
administer healthcare with kind-
ness and compassion, educate
patients and the public about vari-
ous medical conditions, and pro-
vide advice and emotional support
to patients' family members.


Hendry Regional has brick sale fundraiser


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON The Hendry
Regional Medical Center Foun-
dation is in the process of a com-
memorative brick fundraiser.
Now you, a family member or a
friend can be remembered in a
lasting and tangible way for the
vital role you will play in mod-
ern, patient-centered healthcare.
In 2008, HRMC will break
ground on a new Emergency
Room, Laboratory and Surgery


Suite, to be located south of the
existing hospital and connected
by an enclosed corridor.
Your brick memorial will play
a prominent role in the beauty

CLEWISTON The CREW
fundraiser was a success and also
a change for CREW to recognize
all those individuals, families and
agencies that have helped us
along the way. Awards of appreci-
ation were given to all those who
helped CREW in meeting the
needs of the community. Rev-
erend John Hicks and Vice Presi-
dent of CREW, David McClusky
presented the awards and told the
story of how CREW grew from a
request made by the City of
Clewiston to the Clewiston Minis-
terial Association. Friend and for-
mer Radio DJ and Chairman of
Chamber of Commerce, Sean
Moore, helped emcee the night.
Two of the families helped by
CREW attended and spoke of
how much CREW's help aided
them to get their lives back
together.
CREW also presented their
first rebuild for one of these fami-
lies and gave the family their offi-
cial Certificate of Occupancy as a
surprise. During the event, CREW
shared stories about the families
they have been able to help over
300 and how many more Hurri-
cane Wilma families are still left
to help still over 300. They also
shared their hopes that no future
storms will wreak havoc on our
two counties and spoke of their
